Ruger Introduces the PC Charger Pistol

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is excited to introduce the new PC Charger™, a 9mm pistol based on Ruger's popular PC Carbine™ Chassis model. The PC Charger boasts an abundance of features including a 6.5" barrel; an integrated rear Picatinny rail that allows for mounting of picatinny-style braces; a glass-filled polymer chassis system; a flared magazine well for improved magazine reloading capabilities; and an ergonomic pistol grip with extended trigger reach.

The glass-filled polymer chassis system allows for the use of standard AR pistol grips. These models utilize a CNC-machined, hard-coat anodized aluminum handguard with Magpul® M-LOK-compatible slots at the 3, 6, and 9 o'clock positions for easy mounting of M-LOK-compatible rails and accessories. The 6 o'clock position of the handguard features a factory-installed handstop for secure support-hand placement.

These models also maintain several hallmark features of the original PC Carbine, including an easily interchangeable magazine well system that allows the pistol to accept Ruger® Security-9® and SR9®┬ámagazines, as well as Glock®┬ádouble-stack magazines; a dead blow action with a custom tungsten weight that shortens bolt travel and reduces felt recoil and muzzle rise; a reversible magazine release and charging handle to accommodate right- or left-handed use; a simple takedown mechanism to allow for quick separation of the barrel/forend assembly from the action; a durable heat-treated, chrome-moly steel bolt; a cold hammer-forged chrome-moly steel barrel with ultra-precise rifling and a 1/2" x 28 threaded barrel

The PC Charger models ship with the SR-Series™ and Security-9 pistol magazine well installed and an additional magazine well that accepts newer Glock magazines. A 9mm Luger Ruger American® Pistol magazine well is available separately at ShopRuger.com.

The standard model features a 17-round capacity, and an additional 10-round, state compliant model also is available.
