Ruger is a name that is well known even outside of gun owner circles because they have been around for that long and have a reputation for a quality product.
What you may not know is that this long-time gun manufacturer is different from some manufacturers in that Ruger isn’t afraid to do things differently and innovate with new models.
One new model is their PC Charger 9mm Pistol (see the limited magazine state compliant model in the image above). Chris Eger gives us the details on this new pistol:
Based on the company’s popular PC Carbine, Ruger’s new feature-rich PC Charger pistol just hit the market.
Using a 6.5-inch threaded barrel and a glass-filled polymer chassis system that allows for the use of standard AR pistol grips, the takedown PC Charger is 16.5-inches long overall. Hitting the scales at 5.2-pounds, it comes with an integrated rear Picatinny rail for pistol braces.
The Charger uses a hard-coat anodized aluminum handguard with Magpul M-LOK-slots at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions and comes with a factory-installed handstop.
Like the standard PC Carbine, the PC Charger ships with an interchangeable magazine well for Ruger SR-or Security-9 series mags, or Glock 9mm double-stacks. For those with a Ruger American pistol, you can get a separate mag well for that as well for a little extra coin.
The PC Charger ships with a single SR-series mag as well as tools for disassembly of the chassis system and charging handle removal. For those behind the lines, Ruger also offers a state-compliant model with a 10-round mag.
MSRP on the Ruger PC Charger is $799.
Now, just a reminder for those who get caught up in the name of this model: this pistol may be called the PC Charger, but there isn’t anything politically correct about it. And that’s a good thing. It’s a firearm that does what it’s supposed to do.
So, if you want something a little out of the ordinary, even if the name confuses some people, then the Ruger PC Charger may be worth a look.
