45 acp would be sweet. I wonder if Ruger is going to make it in other calibers

10mm would be a dream machine for me.

I'm getting mine back from Ruger tomorrow. It went back due to the forend/barrel assembly coming loose while shooting even though it was super tight. We'll see if they fixed it or issued a new one. From the 60 or so rounds I tried putting through it, it seemed to be ok. My grip probably lends itself better to a fixed stock model and not a takedown.

Thanks for posting Rocket. I hope it works out for you. Please let keep us posted. I don't think the local 3 gun stages are more than 50 yards or so, but they do have a 200 yd rifle range. If that is to be in the mix, I'll try the M1 Carbine as I don't own an AR ( :o) yet. I've got a list of walnut and steel that needs saving before I go polymer and Carbon fiber.

Unfortunately the same issue is happening. They replaced the takedown block in the receiver. It turns out in swapping barrels/receivers around with a buddy that has one, my barrel is out of spec and doesn't fully insert into either of our receivers. So now I have to go full circle with Ruger again and see what they want to do. It will be for sale after I get the barrel issue taken care of. I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars going to a match and not fully trusting that it won't have the same issue if I am pushing it hard.

Sorry to hear about that.  Mine's been running like a champ, but I don't blame you for flipping yours since it's left such a sour taste.

hmmm. good to know, thanks for the followup. I got to shoot one this weekend and I'm still sold on it. LGS is having a big sale in a couple of weeks, I'm squirrleing until then. Is this a problem that can be spotted before purchase (putting it together at the counter)?

I also heard about a guy with a barrel that was out of spec, but it was some errant rifling.

Anyone else know of any issues to lookout for?

I shot mine again this weekend am really no longer worried. The gun ran perfectly. Very accurate at 50 yards. Although I find the front post difficult to acquire. Trying to decide if I want an optic for it.

Do it.  I ran a Vortex Venom and now a C-More, and it doesn't miss.

will either of those co witness with the iron sights? I like to keep irons available in case optics fail. Or I guess I could get some offset irons

No, not with their standard picatinny rail mounts.  If that's the case, then something with a see-through riser I guess.

I might get the Bushnell that was on the Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore email yesterday. At $35, it is so inexpensive. Surely it will work on something if not the PC9

Since they added PCC to IDPA I've been tempted to try my Hipoint 9mm carbine out. It's not the prettiest gun (by a long shot) but it shoots great and it would be a lot of fun!

Yeah, I'm considering shooting my PCC at a local IDPA if they allow it.  It's not offered as a division option during registration.
