Think I’ll shoot mine a bit before I try anything, as I keep scoring 9mm I should be willing to sacrifice some. Initial thoughts- Great balance and stock sights even if a bit on the heavy side. Feels like it’ll be more of an accurate instinctive point and shooter vs my Sub2K. Changed out the mag well already for the Glock one, tried several sizes of mags- from G26 10rd, G17 17rd, and the 33rd happy sticks and still felt well balanced with all.

It's about a pound heavier than a beretta cx-4, but the weights on the receiver end and doesn't bother me so far. Probably won't be doing any mag dumps till things calm down after the election. Love the takedown portability. Already have a couple red dots laying around looking for a home.

Also an excellent option for a car or truck gun- effective caliber, mag fed capacity, portability and concealability.

Let me know what you think of the MCarbo and TK upgrades. My BIL swears by MCarbo on his Sub 2K. I will be picking up some similar items shortly. I just picked up the PCC chassis model yesterday. Already thinking an extended mag release and larger charging handle are in order (along with swapping the charging handle to the left side). Will likely add a hand stop or grip as well. Without irons, the first addition has to be an optic though.

Those are great AR features on your stock model. Kinda making wish I'd held off and got one like that from the jump. I'm still glad to have picked one up though.

Ruger definitely did a good job integrating AR features, IMO. The stock and handguide are nice touches. I'd been waiting about 6 months for this model to come back in stock and finally lucked out earlier this week and jumped on it. I even got a nice delivery of 9mm this week. On the guns and ammo front, this week has been a weeklong version of Ice Cube's "good day". Nice change from the usual availability issues on most items this year so far.

If I were to get a Ruger PCC, that would be the perfect setup.
