Who has/had one, what make and how does it stack up. I have a bunch of .40 ammo (A LOT) and would like a plinker.

I had the Ruger PC Police Carbine in 9mm. It came in 40 as well.
I bought it for plinking. Too tell the truth it was not as fun as a .22.
The carbine was made very well and solid, if Ruger made their 10/22 as well it would be on everyone's list.

Hearing good things about the Ruger! It sounds like a good gun to pack on the farm.

Any particular reason that you desire a carbine in chambered in a pistol round?

Just curious.

If you enjoy throwing money away I am ok with that.

the Ruger PC .40 carbine is a good choice

I had the PC9 with ghost ring sites and put over 10,000 rds through it before selling

recoil spring broke but rifle continued to function properly, it has two recoil springs, one standard spring and one shorter spring that s the one that broke but it didnt malfunction, didnt know until I disassembled it for cleaning and inspected it

rear site screw broke off and needed replacement

it's kind of heavy for it's compact size because of the heavy steel blow back mechanism inside, it's about the size of an M1 carbine but much heavier

the ghost ring sites helps for combat shooting and fast follow up shots and also for low light conditions

it was also designed to shoot +P defense ammo, it will make a nice home defense / camp rifle

mine had a double magazine pouch on the butt stock to carry two extra magazine with the rifle that I bought online for about $30, also added a black military sling with quick release swivels

I had 20 rd Mecgar magazines and they were the best after market mag, do not use cheap after market mags in the PC9 / PC .40

MECGARS are the most reliable mags and made as good as the Ruger factory mags supplied with rifle
