Is it as quiet as some are claiming?



I wouldn’t call it quiet, it did sound different, like it was a lower frequency report.
I tried to post a vid of me shooting it but the file was too big.

Generally speaking, longer barrels and smaller powder charges will produce lower, albeit not hearing safe, levels of noise.  In the case of 9mm and its limited space within case for powder, one will experience a lower report and very little muzzle flash/blast coming from a carbine like the Ruger.

In other words, firing .38+P from my 3” SP101 has a hint of fire and fury (the real thing, not the book).  However, the same .38+P fired from my Ruger 77/357’s 18” barrel is an absolute pleasure, like shooting some type of big .22lr.

I would not worry about the noise level at all.

So, has anyone seen these in a brick & mortar store in State, and if so, what is the asking price. Seems they are available online, at $460-$500, but then you have to tack on shipping & transfer fees. And I try to buy local, when I can.

As I may have originally posted, this is on my wannit list. The Shockwave was on it, but is now off. Handled one, and while, yes, pretty cool, it's not for me, at least not for anything serious.

I've also been thinking about the Ruger Scout Rifle in .223, as a step up from the 10/22 as a range gun that could double for serious applications, and survive the (I suspect) coming CT semi-auto rifle ban, but...ah. It's on a .308 size action, there don't seem to be any 5 or 3 round mags, the 10 rounders are crazy expensive...kind of killin' it for me, Ruger.  What I'd really like is a left-handed CZ carbine, but I don't think that's going to happen. So still thinking about the Scout but, I dunno.

The 9mm carbine just seems practical. Cheap ammo. Reviews say it's accurate. Should be fun on the range and could be used as a house gun, though serious consideration of the matter leads me to conclude that a pistol is still the best bet. But it could be useful...more so than the Shockwave, for sure. And the takedown feature is a plus.

Course if our enlightened pols decide to ban semi-autos this fall... well, guess we can't worry about everything, right?

So 9mm PC carbine or Scout in .223 seem to be the top choices for the next long gun.

Center Sports in Columbia and Central CT Arms in Portland have the Ruger PCC on order.  Both dealers are getting the 19101 model which does not have the threaded barrel.

I’m not sure how many dealers are aware the threaded barrel is CT legal. That being said I’m pretty rusty on the chapter and verse of that whole part of the convoluted verbiage we call a law.

I did not ask for an expected date of arrival due to the fact the Ruger likely has a backorder of thousands at this point.
I shot the threaded barrel. I believe they can be found at hoffmans just not sure if they are sold out yet. Those places will probably sell the non threaded to some but I surly won't be buying it there's no point, may as well get the threads even if you don't use them

CZ has a 527 Carbine chambered in 7.62x39mm. That would pack more punch than a 9mm and ammo is cheaper than .223 Remington. Don't know if they offer this for lefties.

Much to my dismay, they do not.
I suspect Ruger will, at some point, offer the Ranch version of the American on a left handed action. I've been eyeing the predator in 6.5 Creedmore, but it's got a 22" barrel, out of the short carbine category. Still nice though, but probably longer overall than my No. 1.

Since the original topic of this thread is the Ruger PCC, I suppose I should promote it. This firearm does give you the ability to attend all of the PCC plate shoots and such around the state. Neither the Scout nor the 527 will  allow you entrance into those games.
 
As for your No.1, if that's a .30-06 or .308, you have plenty of ammo options there. Ever try cast, coated or plated bullets, sabots, frangibles, etc.? Cast loads get you into the metallic silhouette matches. Of course, you won't find these at 147g ball prices, but they can be had readily, especially if you reload.

Waiting for the distributors to get them in. Once they do I will hopefully be able to grab a few to sell.
