The Ruger PC CARBINE is an autoloading rifle chambered for the 9mm Luger (Parabellum) cartridge. The PC CARBINE is “blowback” operated and uses standard Ruger SR9 pistol magazines. Easy takedown enables quick separation of the barrel/forend assembly from the action for ease of transportation and storage. Takedown is as simple as locking the bolt back and verifying that the rifle is unloaded, pushing a recessed lever, twisting the subassemblies and pulling them apart. Dead blow action features a custom tungsten dead blow weight that shortens bolt travel and reduces felt recoil and muzzle rise. Bolt is machined from heat treated, chrome-moly steel to ensure strength, structural integrity and durability.
