Hey guys, let's see what you have done with your Ruger PC carbines. Sight options, slings, rails etc. This seems like a cool platform at a reasonable price. Thanks. :)

I've been interested in these weapons as well, so I too wouldn't mind seeing some of your personal or duty setups.

Gould & Goodrich makes a double mag pouch for the stock like the M1 carbine has.


I've seen one modded with an M1913 rail screwed to the forearm for a Surefire light, there are also non-permanent strap-around type mounts that can be used.

Be aware the PC's have somewhat heavy triggers (on purpose..... police gun). Otherwise, they're solidly built, and fairly accurate. They handle like an M1 carbine.

Are there any 15 rounders available for the 40?

The .40 uses P93/94 mags, any 15 round Ruger pistol mags will work.

I just picked up a PC9 for a pretty good price. Can't believe I never looked at these before. Great carbine, very SHORT! In fact, I was actually surprised by how short it is. Nice, thick barrel, unlike a Mini-14, with a great front sight. Big selling point for me as well.

I have plans to screw a rail to my forend and use it with a Surefire G2 in a First Samco mount. I also happen to have a New England Custom Guns peep sight that fits on a Ruger base, thought I would give that a shot as well. Will post pics after getting both parts mounted (have to order a rail first).

I've liked 'em but never hav one at the top of my list. Maybe someday there'll be a PC9GR here with me. Have no plans for any silly accessories or add-ons' It'll be for a range plinker or small game getter so I don't need any lights, lasers or rails hangin' off it just so I can look cool. :evil: Sorry, just seems that most folks just add these things to make themselves or the guns look "bad". Sure wish they were available in .45ACP! :cool:

I can surely understand this comment:

"Sorry, just seems that most folks just add these things to make themselves or the guns look "bad"."

I agree with that whole heartedly.

In my case, it isn't to look bad, I want a rifle with a light. If you have ever gone outside while all your chickens are raising a fuss, trying to juggle a flashlight and a rifle at the same time, you would easily understand.

That being said, er, written, I will go on record as no longer OWNING any chickens :rolleyes: We don't keep any livestock right now, we are in the city at the moment. However, the handiness factor when going out in the dark cannot be denied. This carbine is, after all, for home protection. I bought it for that, it shoots 10 times quick, 15 if you have a pre-ban. Can't do much better than that. The light makes it all the better in my estimation.

There is no ban. But you live in Kalifornistan, so there is.

There are two-mag holders that make an "L" so you can swap quick. The Uzi has a mag holder like that.

Mr. Murphy,

You said the p93/94 series works for the 40 carbine? So the 9mm mags will accept 40 cal. ammo? I hope you are right!

Do they have sling attachments?

Love my PC9. Only change/addition is a red dot sight up top.

Would think you could make your own barrel band to replace the stock one that also extended down to hold a flashlight if you wish.

Anyone wanting really cheap practice, the Walmart 10/22 has the same exact stock shape. The trigger is in the same exact relative position and the stock trigger and bolt handle have a similar feel. The Wally 10/22 does have a longer barrel. But otherwise makes a near perfect cheap analogue for practicing with use of the PC9 in mind.

The P94 I think is the .40 pistol, this works with the PC4.

The P93 I think is 9mm? This works with the PC9, as do the P89 magazines. As to whether a P93 mag would work in a PC4 carbine, I don't know. But the Ruger 9mm and .40 pistol mags work in the respective carbines.

I wish the made one in .45.
