Handguard Added

The PC model we reviewed is #19117, which is distinguished by its tactical, CNC-milled, aluminum free-float handguard with Magpul M-LOK accessory attachment slots on all four flat sides for easy mounting of M-LOK-compatible rails and accessories. With a diameter of approximately 1.8", it’s very comfortable and hand-filling, offering excellent control and enough M-LOK slots to satisfy the most dedicated “accessorizer.” It definitely sheds the “low-profile” lines of the standard PC and shouts “tactical.”

The rear stock is made from a black, glass-filled nylon composition with a defined cheekpiece on both sides and a textured pistol grip. A really nice feature of the new PC is the LOP of the buttstock is adjustable from 12.6 to 14.12" using the factory-supplied spacers. This carbine will pretty much fit the whole family.

The new aluminum receiver features an integral Picatinny rail, just perfect for advanced optics although the adjustable factory ghost-ring receiver sight is fast and practical. The blowback action is fully ambidextrous, with a reversible charging handle and magazine release, and, yes, the bolt locks open when the last shot is fired.

The new PC has two really outstanding features — it’s a takedown and it offers interchangeable magazine wells.

With an overall length of 34.37", a 16.12" threaded, fluted barrel and a weight of 7 lbs., the PC beaks down into two parts by simply toggling a recessed lever, twisting the forend/barrel assembly 90-degrees clockwise and pulling the two sub-assemblies apart. Likewise, the PC arrives fitted with an SR-Series/Security-9 pistol magazine well and a 10-round magazine. Also included is an additional magazine well for GLOCK mags while Ruger American Pistol magazine wells are available directly from www.shopruger.com. Pretty neat and very versatile!
