    Using the Glock mag adapter and 124 grain Federal at an 8” plate; 75 yards standing. It’s a sweet carbine and I can’t get enough of it!

    Does the PC have any plastic parts ?, it cost as much as the rifle itself to get our Beretta CX4 hardened by Sierra Papa.

    and come to think of it, is the accuracy of the rifle, or any 'take down' rifle affected by the barrel being removed and replaced. It would seem to me that for the performance to remain consistent the torque of attaching the barrel would have to be exactly the same as when it left the factory, IF it leaves the factory in one piece.

    The 10/22 takedown has a knob you set once to adjust the barrel/receiver mating. After that it just rotates and clicks into place to where you set it. I imagine the PC9 is the same, but I can't say for sure.

    I’ve not taken it apart many times and not since I put the red dot on it so I can’t comment on any accuracy degradation. It locks into place very well so I don’t see why accuracy would be affected.

    If Ruger supplies different calibers in the future this would be interesting to see.

    I am toying with getting one as a suppressor host. Mount a DBAL to the PMM MLOK foreend and it would be a sweet night time critter gitter.

    I've been considering the PC9 as a toy and in a pinch, another, coyote in the back yard gun. I've got a Aimpoint, red dot, that's been looking for a place to sit and a few Glock joy sticks that would look good in a PC9. Seems like a good, hack around, 9mm, carbine.

    Not sure these are in stock yet but seems MA ready with fixed stock and non threaded barrel.

    Is that from the factory?
    I saw an aftermarket stock that looked similar. Maybe $300?

    If from the factory, it better be priced at $650 MAX

    I think .40 was is now an option. Or at least available as a complete rifle.
    I have one sitting in the safe, waiting for Volquartsen and a few other manufacturers that make all the race gun stuff for the 10/22 to start on the pc9.

    Fun little rifle.

    New factory model.
    It's $799 so yeah probably $650 or so in stores.

    Looks like both a collapsible stock and a barrel nut covering threads in that photo. Ruger is pretty good about making compliant versions though.

    I'm seeing more and more of these at USPSA matches.

    Yeah, maybe they didn't use the right photo. I don't think this MA version is on sale yet.

    I really wanted to like this but I can’t. The stock is too light for me and it doesn’t balance right.

    I’m a huge Ruger fan. Maybe they’ll do a wood stock?

    sucks because I haven’t heard a bad thing about them.

    They should have done that the first time. I think they went with .40 to try to get some state and local PD contracts.
