Wow!! Compared to my Hi-Point 9mm carbine, this chambers smoother, lighter in weight, significantly more accurate at longer range (100 yards and more). I have had no malfunctions with the security 9 magazines but I always have the option to change over to the reliable Glock magazines. Out of the box with the factory set Iron sights, it was ready to accurately and flawlessly function, Total reliable for personal protection an provides me a great bug-out system with my Security 9 handgun. Ruger has really knock it out of the park with this carbine, watch out Glock, I love you, but Ruger is nipping at your heels.

Terrific dependable utilitarian pistol caliber carbine. Excellent simple takedown, can be placed in a compact bugout bag. Enough rail for a bipod in the front or other accessory. Rail on top perfect for a nice red dot or other scope. A good value in a dependable carbine. Readily available 17 round (or larger) mags. Nice firearm.

Ruger PC carbine 9mm, little to no kick,no problems no jams. I shoot free hand so it is difficult to measure accuracy exactly, however, I was very happy with its capabilities.

Received my new Ruger PC Carbine from Bud's a couple of weeks ago. Mounted a Nikon P223 scope (1" tube 3x32) on it and took it to the range. Zeroed the scope for 50 yds and started testing the handloads that I had available at the time. Fired projectiles from 90 gr to 147 gr. most of them were producing groups of 2" or less at 50 yds. (Some of the groups were little more that 1") One exception being a 115 gr copper plated RN that was rather eratic compared the all the other rounds groups (out to 6"). Did not have my chronograph with me at the time. Trigger pull comes in at 4.5# with a nice, clean break. I little heavier than I would prefer, but definitely not bad! The carbine has a nice heavy feel to it, which I appreciate. I am impressed overall with the new carbine and excited about doing some more research with various loads. I decided to stick with the Ruger magazines, and acquired 3 extra ones. All of the mags performed as expected. I don't thing anyone will be disappointed in the Ruger PC Carbine.

This rifle exceeds expectations. Handles very well and is reliable, accurate and easy to clean. The only negative criticism I can throw at it is that it weighs more than it needs to. Bolt is incredibly heavy for its caliber. That being said you always know when your mag is empty because you do not feel the bolt slam forward after your last round is fired. Rifle is the same quality as guns that cost over three times as much.

An outstanding PCC! Several range trips so far before restrictions, and it has performed flawlessly. I really like the option to use different mags, although I chose to stick with the Ruger SR9/SR9c mags. Accurate and fun to fire. Probably the only complaint would be the weight, but for me I like that it feels solid. I have been eyeballing some of the Mcarbo upgrades to make it even better. Also, another great experience through Bud's.... right price and fast shipping.

This is a nice pistol carbine. Feels very similar to the Ruger 10/22. It’s quite handy that it comes with a mag well for Glock mags. Sights were dead on right out of the box. I like the take-down system, it’s quick and easy to break down or put back together.

My Ruger 9 mm carbine arrived on time as promised. It was exactly what I had ordered and what I expected. Right out of the box it was ready for use. The directions book was clear and very useful, too. I am totally satisfied with my purchase. The carbine is a handy size for personal security and for shooting. It is light weight and reminds me of my old 1950’s army M1 carbine, though it holds more rounds.

This was my third purchase from Buds. I recieved my two Ruger 9mm carbines in a very timely manner under our current situation. I have not fired the guns but it was so simple to convert to the Glock box in order to accept the Glock magazines. The guns are much heavier built than they appear to the eye and seem to be easy to break down to clean. Being able to purchase a 1000 rounds of 9mm for 200 dollars plus tax is the reason I made the purchase. It is so easy doing business with Buds.
