Ruger PC Charger Pistol has arrived!

ZeeZee Senior MemberPosts: 23,517 Senior Member
Started off installing an AimPoint Comp M4 and a Tandem Cross Brake I had laying around. 

But I didn’t like how high the AimPoint rode so I switched it out for a Trijicon Reflex Sight. Not my favorite sight. But, it’s lower profile and doesn’t take batteries. The brake sucks as well, but I  have it. Gonna try and talk CPJ into making me another one. 

Still waiting for the brace to ship from backorder. So, it’ll be awhile until I shoot it, unfortunately. 

Trigger breaks at 4.5 pounds. Not light, but not horrible either. 

Buddy is gonna let me borrow a collapsible brace from his Sig so I can maybe at least shoot it until my folding brace comes in.

    I think I’m putting my 9mm AR plans on ice until your range report.

    I commented about the aesthetics of that gun on your previous post a few weeks ago but its kinda growing on me. I think the only goofy looking thing is the rearward angle of the mag. I know why they had to do that, for feeding without the bullet plunging into the top of the breech face, but it would have given me the Hollywood gun vibe if it were completely vertical. Anyhow, definitely waiting on the range report.

    Nice! If you get a chance, please shoot it left handed (with eyes of course) and let me know your thoughts regarding whether it's good to go for a lefty with the brass ejecting.

    Will do.

    With a folding brace that will be awesome when out and about in an inconspicuous bag

    Yeah, while it is a heavy sucker, it is quite handy. 
    I’ll need a smaller discrete case.

    I still dont know why I like that thing, but I do.

    I do too. I have absolutely no interested in a gun like that... No interest, no interest, no interest...

    It’s stupid fun and stupid easy to shoot. And doesn’t have the muzzle blast of an AR Pistol in .223 Rem.

    How does it compare to the CZ Scorpion? 
  • ZeeZee Senior Member Posts: 23,517 Senior Member
    I’ve not shot a Scorpion. 
    I know it’s cheaper, been 100% reliable in both versions I have, and it takes Glock Mags........which was a major selling point for me.

    I have the scorpion it’s been great as far as reliability. The Glock mag thing would be nice the scorpion uses its own proprietary mag. 

    Is the Ruger barrel threaded for a suppressor? The CZ is but you then have to buy a rather spendy metric to standard thread adapter. 

    If this had been around when the CZ can out I’m thinking I probably wouldn’t have the CZ lol. 
  • ZeeZee Senior Member Posts: 23,517 Senior Member
    The Ruger is threaded 1/2-28 threads.

    Then I will start the countdown right now to the first dummy that screws in an AR muzzle device and blows the barrel up  :D

    1/2x28 is the standard thread size for American 9mms

    I thought 9mms had a different thread size for muzzle devices.  My old 9mm pistol AR did not accept any 1/2x28 accessories.  The thread on the barrel was different.  This was a few years back.

    IDK, most of the 9mms I've seen had 1/2x28

    The adapter I had to buy for my CZ is 18 x 1 to 1/2 x 28. All the other threaded 9mm barrels we have are 1/2x28.

    Interesting, I've been operating under a misconception!  Then my apologies to Ruger  B)

    Zee, you suck and I hate  you. ;)
    Now you've got me going to Ruger's site to look at that gun I don't want. It even shoots 9mm Luger... :open_mouth:

    Now that looks very usable.  Is it as stable as it looks?

    The top part is. The lower brace is made of rubber with a split through it to wrap around your arm. Not the most rigid design in the world.
