Ruger Introduces New PC Carbine for 2018

When Mark Gurney of Ruger stopped by the OSG live stream set during the 2018 SHOT Show, industry chatter started things off as host Michael Bane and Gurney chatted business strategy during what some are describing as an industry downturn.

How do you survive such a downturn? The answer from both Bane and Gurney was that a company that is smart in its strategy when it comes out with a variety of new products, something that Ruger has done in spades during 2018 to the tune of 79 new SKUs!

One of those new products is the Ruger PC Carbine in 9mm Luger, a complete redesign of the previous related version said Gurney.

Constructed to perform well in a variety of applications ranging from plinking, to serious competition, to home/personal defense, the Ruger PC Carbine is built to be accurate, dependable, and easy to use thanks in part to being CNC-milled from aerospace-grade 7075-T6 aluminum billet.

With features like a dead blow action featuring a custom tungsten dead blow weight (that Ruger says shortens bolt travel and reduces felt recoil and muzzle rise) along with a cold hammer-forged, chrome-moly steel barrel, and there is much to like about this new offering from Ruger.

Add in ultra-precise rifling, a soft rubber buttpad with spacers for proper sizing, an adjustable ghost ring, threaded or fluted barrels depending on the model chosen, and a light and crisp trigger pull using Ruger's 10/22 trigger components, and the new Ruger PC Carbine should be another winning product from the longtime American firearms manufacturer.

Even during a year that some are describing as an industry downturn!
