Ruger has added new PC Carbine models to their catalog including those with free-float handguards and .40 S&W chamberings.
The new models, described by Ruger as adding “improved utility for home defense and competition,” all feature standard black synthetic stocks, 16.12-inch barrels and an interchangeable magazine well system that allows the rifle to accept either Ruger SR-series or Glock mags. Likewise, each has an easy takedown system that allows the short, 34.37-inch Carbine to break down for even more compact stowage.
The biggest difference is in those with the aluminum Magpul M-LOK free float handguard. For multi-state compliance, Ruger also has variants in both the standard and Magpul handguard variants with non-threaded barrels and 10-round magazines.
Models with the ventilated aluminum free-float handguard include numerous Magpul M-LOK accessory attachment slots on all four sides. For California buyers, the guns will ship with 10-round magazines and without threaded barrels.
The takedown PC Carbine will also be offered in .40S&W– to include California-compliant models. Past models were only chambered in 9mm
Threaded barrels on the .40S&W models use a 9/16x24TPI thread pattern while the 9mm features 1/2×28.
