I'm in complete shock they went with Glock mags and not some weird proprietary one.

me too. I was ready to read this article and see that it only takes ruger mags. Glad they took that extra step. Now make it in 10mm with glock mags and you’ve got something.

1/2-28 is pretty common for 9mm barrels...just about all aftermarket barrels use that

Someone will put on a 5.56 flash hider and blame Ruger.

$649 msrp is too steep for me to find out if I like it.

$480 at Whittakers.

People have been saying that forever...have yet to hear of someone putting a 556 anything on a 9mm. Not saying it will never happen...idiots are everywhere, but that’s a very common thread pitch for 9mm and has been for years.

Not really IMHO, at $450-$500 it's a little bit more than a S2K and less than a CX4 and Scorpion
I think we've been spoiled by the beyond flooded AR market prices lately

Maybe I overlooked something, but Ruger's website lists 2 different models, one with a 10 round capacity, the other a 17 round capacity. I would think there's no difference in the weapon itself, and capacity is dependent on which mag you put in it. I just don't see the point of having two different models.

Non-free state (CA, NY, MA etc..) models. They can't ship the models with the higher cap mags in the box to those states. If you look on KyGunCo and Bud's websites for example they list separate models for those states.

Well guess what, they went for both. I have to give them credit there.

Quote:
Yes, that’s right, this gun from Ruger comes with a magazine well adapter for GLOCK magazines. Installed from the factory, though, is the insert for the more obvious choice: Ruger magazines. SR series and Security-9 mags will work, and a 17-round SR9 magazine is included with the PC Carbine (or a 10-round mag with a non-threaded muzzle for restricted states).

They should think about a chassis that will make it more like a PDW or assault rifle. If they had introduced it as a PDW with "pistol" barrels avalible and this ugly 10/22 look for neutered states I think it would have generated more buzz.

Ruger is coming around, they are doing a whole lot better then any Remington owned company, but have a long way to go to get free of bill rugers legacy

Aftermarket will probably step up to plate to make that happen.

My first thoughts.
Would rather have an AR 9mm.
