    You cannot however get the .40 S&W in the free float option, they have to start at the beginning of the evolutionary process where the 9mm did.

    Perhaps we will see a .45 ACP in 2020 and a 10mm in 2021?

    Oh wow they found a way to make it even uglier!

    :rolleyes:

    This is basically a range toy gun as far as I can tell, don't know why they can't make a nice wood stocked one.

    While that handguard is pretty ugly, it would make the rifle that much easier to step right into PPC competitions.

    Only a matter of time now for the other calibers.

    Beauty is in the eye of the etc.

    I like em!

    I can't find the everyday low price though...

    Anyone have a ball park idea?

    Thanks!

    I have an el cheapo High Point, and yes it's has the HP stigma, but I gotta tell ya, it's never failed to go bang after about 600/800 rounds and is accurate.

    That said, I'd it's fun to shoot 9mm carbine and I'd really like one these new Ruger free floaters...

    Hand guard does nothing for me for sure. I was afraid they would go for the .40 next. I really want one in 10mm. Just took mine to the weekly range trip. Damn thing is still my hands down favorite long gun.

    Which one do you mean? If you mean the original they have settled in at around $500 and are in plenty of supply now.
    If you mean the 9mm version with the new hand guard my favorite distributor is showing them at $80 more than the original version so when they start to hit shelves if it stays like that you will be getting close to $600. They also show the original configuration in .40 at the same price as the 9mm. Of course none for sale from them yet. As always happens when something new hits you have to get lucky and stumble on one, buy one from the auction for whatever premium you are willing to pay, or wait till the pipe line fills up. When the original showed up I watched until one place had them at $525 on the auction and grabbed it, so of course had to pay shipping and transfer. All if what are you willing to pay vs how long you want to wait.

    Though a fan of pistol-caliber carbines, this one just isn't doing anything for me. But, to each their own.

    Looks more like a Russian PPK, will Talco make a wood stock version?

    My previous PCCs all had levers underneath them. That is my preference. But too many people gave too many glowing reviews on the Ruger PC9, I had to get one to try out. I must say it sure became a unexpected favorite quickly. Little recoil, cheap ammo and accurate. What's not to like?
    Too accurate to let go, I will still be waiting for the aftermarket to catch up as far as making her pretty. If there would be even 10% of the items for the 10/22 I would be ecstatic. Glad to see Ruger is creating options. Until others join in (Magpul where are you?), she is what she is.....

    Pass on the handguard :eek:

    Still waiting on 2 options: 10mm and .45acp with a threaded barrel to run suppressed. If they pull out the .45acp, I'll definitely be interested.

    Oh, and I'd prefer a wood stock over the synthetic, just me.

    I’m thinking I’d still go with the Midwest industries rail.

    It looks like an AR, a Glock and a 10/22 got really drunk together one night and this is their bastard love child.

    I did not see this in a e-mail. I am a 40 fan. I already have a Kel-Tek Sub 2000 in 9 MM Glock and a AR9 so the Ruger PCC 9 MM did not grab me even though I have a lot of RAP mags, and a well is available for them.

    I have Glock 40/357 Sig mags handy. 40 seems a better option, shooting bigger, heavier, faster, flatter. than a 9 MM seems a winner to me.

    Faster and flatter? They are so neck and neck in both departments that it's hard to make that argument.
