Something I realized would be an AMAZING accessory for this would be a .22 TCM barrel. Same mags, bolt face, everything, just needs a barrel swap, which this can do quickly, and then the rainbow trajectory of 9mm gives way to a hilariously flat shooting for size .22 hornet equivalent.

If Ruger doesn't make one, I will.

Skiddyfisk,

Here is something I would really like to know.

How hard is this carbine to clean, and how long did it take you to do it?

thanks,

Mannyrock

Saw a take down one in 9mm yesterday at Academy. It has some sort of insert where it will use maybe a Ruger mag and or a Glock mag. Kind of neat, but near $600, too much for my blood. Gonna stick with my Hi-points.

Go Donald Go!!

I have a Hi-point in 10mm. Love it!!

Don't be a hater, it goes bang every time and is accurate.

I bought one last week for $485 and shot it yesterday and I love it. It was a blast to shoot and accurate. not one problem with the ruger mag in it. Have not tried it with the glock mags yet.

Just back from a LGS with a new PC. It's the non-threaded versionwhich is fine with me, for $499. This thing is very cool. It has a heavy fluted barrel with peep sights and it's take down design is neat. It's has a picatany rail on the receiver and short one at the end of the forearm. I'm a lefty so I went ahead and swapped the ambidextrous charge handle to the left and the magazine release to the right. I also swapped out the magazine well to be able to use Glock mags. It is rated for +p ammo. I can't wait to try it out!!

I'd bet it will . I saw a pic of one taken down and put in a tennis racket case.

A friend bought one. It is a cool little takedown carbine. I got to shoot it a couple of weeks ago. Handles well and was reliable and accurate. I would get one if the opportunity arose without hesitation.

Cartridges for My Entertainment: 22lr, .223 Rem, 30-06, 380 ACP, 38 spcl, 357 mag/max, , 35 Remington, 35 Whelen, 358 Norma Mag, 10mm Auto, 45 ACP. Mmmmkay what project can I do next... oh, I can't right now I am going hunting!

Still want to hear from somebody as to how much H-LL this thing is to clean after putting 200 rounds of cheap 9mm through it.


I am highly hateful of 1 hour cleaning jobs involving burnt powder residue gunk and lots of small parts. Shoot an hour, then spend an hour cleaning a filthy gun. Ruins it for me.

But, I am open minded. Hope to hear about somebody cleaning this one.
