    I've liked the idea of the PC Carbine since they came out, but was holding out for a .40 or .45. Finally, when SHOT passed this year with no mention of new models, I bought a 9mm and was happy with it.... until today, when Ruger announced 6 new models including 3 chambered in .40:

    Now I kind of wish I had waited a few more months... The 9mm is nice, but I want to fling bullets with weighs that start with 2....

    I know I'm being greedy but I keep hoping for 10mm. My thought is if I'm putting a pistol cartridge in a carbine platform it might as well the higher end of energy to take advantage of the extra barrel length and weight to handle recoil. I might still get the 40 if only because since everyone decided it was a dead cartridge mags and companion guns have been rather affordable.

    I sent a lot of e-mails to "tell the CEO" about a 9mm revolver/range gun, never got a response...good luck with that.
    Wait, I did get 1 response that he was "out of town"...like he answers those emails personally, yeh right:scrutiny:
    :uhoh:

    "Okay, Bob in surveillance says he gave in and bought the 9mm. Launch the new models now. This should be hilarious when he finds out."

    Looks very PPSH-41ish with the aluminum hand guard.

    If Ruger follows their usual modus operandi you may have to wait a year or two before they actually have them in the stores.

    Would I have to order one of those Russian furry hats with the flaps?

    10mm is probably not possible without a major redesign with a lot more weight. Blowback guns in 10mm are pretty rare for a reason.

    Shooting 10mm in a carbine like that would not only make the cash register jingle, but would catch it on fire. If I were to purchase one, I would be happy with the 9mm ammo. But would prefer the Henry single shot in any other caliber.

    This can't be.

    Everyone knows that .40 is dead as sea-scrolls.

    I read it in a magazine.
    (or was it on-line somewhere)

    Certainly looks like it rendered the Q36 Space Modulator obsolete.

    And Ruger does not even manufacturer a semi-auto pistol in 40cal.

    If I buy another I could go for a .45 PC carbine...or a 10mm if it can be done. The .40? Not so much.

    It’s not that .40 is dead, it’s just a bit pricy to plink a lot with compared to a 9mm (which is why I bought the 9mm) and it doesn’t offer enough of a difference from the 9mm for me to justify a buying second one. Plus, it doesn’t have full power10mm oomph to take it hunting and feel comfortable it’ll perform on deer-hogs beyond very short range...

    For folks without a 9mm PC already it could be a very good choice, and for home defense the .40 cal would be great :thumbup:... like I think the 9mm PC is in that role :).

    Time will tell if the .40 stays in the lineup or not...and if a .45 or a 10mm will someday follow. Until then...Stay safe.

    The sights, mag well, trigger, and butt stock remind me of a DeLisle, but, you're right, the hand guard is definitely PPSH like.

    Six new models, in fancy colors and handguards...

    AND NO FOURTY FIVE AUTO?!

    Gah!:fire:

    I guess I'm still sitting on all this cash...

    Why, Ruger?
    Why won't you take my money?
    I'll put it in a nice envelope.
    It's clean, newly minted pink and blue bills.
    Aww, come on already!
    :(
    Please?

    Has anyone come out with additional magwell adaptors for the 9mm version yet? I remember hearing someone say how 3d printing a prototype would be easy, doubt it would hold up to the use.
