    Highly interested in your range report if you get it.  Where/how would you hang a light off it?  I just saw the pistol version (no brace) with wood hand guard for $499.  Could be interesting.
    The version I’m looking at (OP) has MagPul furniture with M-Lok. 
    Ahhhhhhh, cool!

    9mm will soon be more “readily available”. So, I’m assessing more 9mm options than I have in the past. 

    Hence the Ruger PC Carbine I picked up and now this one.

    I’ll test the repeatability of the existing rail........if I get it.  Before I venture further in mounting options.

    Hah!  Totally.  Seriously though, this one is right up your alley.  I have a hard time hanging on to guns that I don't deem "utilitarian" (read: hunting guns), but I think you would enjoy this one a lot.  You do a lot more session shoots than most.

    Well it’s in “My Cart”. So, I’d say we are rounding 3rd.

    Coupla thoughts. . .

    Is the breech locked in any way?  Does it retain the AK's rotary bolt, or have they gone straight blowback?  The blowback Ruger carbine surprised a lot of us with the amount of recoil that makes it to the shoulder - hopefully, this thing does better.

    Kinda like how the M14, G3, and FAL struggle to remain contemporary, the AK with it's lack of a decent optic mounting system and short-radius open sights tends to keep it in the 1950's.  True, it ain't a match rifle, but the pony lacks tricks.

    A really short 9mm “Sub-Gun” that takes Glock mags and runs reliably is a pretty cool trick to me.

    I am guessing no bolt hold open at all, much less locking on empty mag.That's a automatic fail for me on any weapon.

    Well, I either missed the boat or I’ll have to wait a bit.
    The price jumped $200 overnight. Ain’t worth that much to me. 

    But, there is a silver lining.........Ruger just announced a new firearm today. 

    I KNEW I waited for a reason!!

    Price jump is probably because guns and ammo are flying off the shelf.
    Misplaced the shell limiter for my shotgun and figured i would purchase one instead of making one and being a millimeter too short or something. Anyways people were lined up to go into the gun shop.  Drove to another and found the same thing

    New Ruger???

    Dude you need the AK patterned pistol now.  We are entering the zombie apocalypses and we know the AK is SO much better for an apocalypse.

    Ruger is going to make a takedown Ruger Charger in 9MM based on the 9 MM carbine.

    I keep looking at the CMMG Banshee.  One of the reasons is the radial delay system and how its supposed to get rid of a lot of the recoil impulse due to the straight blow back systems in most pistol caliber guns like these.  My TNW ASR has an odd recoil feel to it and the one 9mm AR pistol with a brace I shot had the same odd feeling recoil.  Just not sure I could really justify the cost of a CMMG though.
