Does anyone have one of the Ruger PC Carbines? If so how well do you like it? I have been interested in these ever since they came out but I have never seen one in the flesh, er, plastic. The over riding complaint on them seems to be the weight. The standard model is shown to weigh 6 pounds and 13oz. The newer version with a muffler shroud for a forearm shows to weigh 7 pounds 3 oz. And yes for a gun of this type thats a little weighty.
I have a Marlin model 9 Camp Carbine in 9mm and it weighs 6 pounds 7oz so not a lot less than the Ruger standard model. I really like the Camp Carbine and we have shot it quite a bit. Its been flawless in function and more than accurate enough. Our standard plinking target is a pipe fence post set in the ground at almost 100 yards from my buds front porch. We shoot 10 round groups and so far the record is 8 out of 10 shots are hits. And all strings are fired off hand. I have shot it out to 200 yards and keeping your shots on a mans chest at that range from a field rest is not hard to do.
I have a lot of interest in the Ruger now that I have a Glock 17 and the ability to use the same mags for both guns is a big plus to me. I gave my son a S&W model 915 9mm pistol and it uses the same mags as the Marlin so I told him I want him to have the Marlin one day. If he comes up from Florida to the Ft Worth area to visit and is driving I will send it home with him. The Ruger would be a replacement for the Marlin.
So tell me your Ruger stories if you have them.
