Thread: New Ruger LC Carbine

  1. #11
    If I had extra cash and less projects, Iíd consider that and the pistolÖ only if they do the carbine like the pistol and offer without the manual safety. My Rugged Oculus is 5.7mm rated, so could be fun.

    At one point I converted a PC Charger to the traditional pistol layout ...

    One other thing. If you watch Forgotten Weapons video from the Cheek Pistol wave, at the 07:50 mark you can hear Ian saying:
    "Alliright, so... I think that (Cheek Pistol) is a fascinating concept. It's too bad there isn't a better gun."

    Chris Baker made the same point:

    So I thought: "Indeed. But what if we could _make_ a better gun that allowed one to run matches with a 9mm Cheek Pistol? We have a the technology." So I made one.

    This may also explain why Ruger chose magazine-in-grip layout. Yes, it's expeditious to use the Ruger 57 fire control. And, there may be some sales in California. But also, what if that Cheek Pistol thing is not just a flash in the pan? And what if all it needs is a better gun?

    The upcoming Ruger LC Charger is shaping like that better gun for Cheek Pistol.

    It honestly looks like the best fit yet for that role but I immediately thought it would be great option for children and those of limited stature/strength.

    I believe the 5.7 is popular in gaming (video) thus there is a market

    For a while Iíve thought of the commercially available 5.7 loads as a reloadable .22 Mag. There might be some benefit there if one is a reloader (Iím not).

    I like it for the gee whiz factor but I canít see getting one for the same reason I canít talk myself into a .22 Mag. All I shoot is paper so LR works just fine.

    I agree, .22LR is for fun and target shooting and the .22 Mag is for hunting. It hammers pretty hard on coyote sized and smaller game inside of a 100 yards. It is great for prairie dog sized game further than 100.

    I am intrigued by a 5.7 Ruger American mini sized bolt action. I know that will probably never happen and I am sure I'm the only one who would buy one, but I think that would be a fun rifle for general varminting.

    I would like to see how accurate this rifle turns out to be.

    Savage used to make a bolt action. Maybe it can still be found.
    Also, as usual, small time shops make 5.7 barrels for Thompson Center.
