Ruger this week delivered on a new Chassis Model version of their 9mm pistol caliber PC Carbine that allows the use of standard AR pistol grips and collapsible buttstocks.
In addition to the new glass-filled polymer chassis system, which ships with a six-position, telescoping, Magpul MOE buttstock installed, other additional features include a flared magwell, ergonomic pistol grip with extended trigger reach, and a factory-installed Picatinny top rail.
As with standard PC Carbine variants, the new Chassis Model comes standard with an interchangeable magazine well system to accept common Ruger and Glock magazines, and a reversible magazine release and charging handle to accommodate right- or left-handed shooters.
The little carbine, which has an overall length of between 32.25 and 35.5-inches due to the adjustable stock, also includes a simple takedown mechanism. The 16.12-inch cold hammer-forged chrome-moly steel barrel, in most models, carries 1/2x28TPI threads.
The model’s CNC-milled handguard is Type III hard-coat anodized aluminum with Magpul M-LOK accessory attachment slots on all four sides. (Photo: Ruger)
