Similar to Ruger’s long discontinued PC-9 and PC-40 carbines, but greatly improved!
- Uses either Ruger SR-Series and Security-9® magazines, or Glock pistol magazines after switching out the included magazine well.
- Easy takedown similar to the Ruger 10/22 Takedown rifle.
- Ambidextrous: Reversible magazine release and reversible charging hand.
- Cold hammer-forged, chrome-moly steel barrel with ultra-precise rifling provides exceptional accuracy, longevity and easy cleaning. The heavy contour barrel provides consistent accuracy, while barrel fluting sheds unnecessary weight and allows for quick handling.1/2″-28 threaded barrel with included thread protector allows for use of standard muzzle accessories (flash hiders or suppressors).
- Soft rubber buttpad with spacers allows the rifle to be properly sized for different shooters or varying levels of outerwear or defensive gear (three, 1/2” spacers included).
- Durable, glass-filled nylon synthetic stock features sling swivel studs for rapid sling attachment and forward mounted accessory rail to allow for a variety of under-barrel accessories such as lights or lasers.
- The grip features a proprietary texture for enhanced control.Light, crisp trigger pull with minimal overtravel and positive reset utilizing proven 10/22® trigger components.Also includes: one, SR-Series pistol magazine and hex wrenches for rear sight adjustment, buttpad spacer adjustment and charging handle removal.
- Currently only offered in 9mm, but I’d be highly surprised if it is not soon offered in .40 S&W.

As of December 2017 these haven’t reached the general pubic yet. Hopefully there will soon be some YouTube torture tests. If these test favorably I think that they would make a great addition to any home defense arsenal. Questions that I have include:
- How reliable is the carbine with 115 grain, 124 grain, and 147-150 grain subsonic loads?
- How reliable is the carbine with different hollow-point and FMJ loads?
- How reliable is the carbine with standard pressure vs. +P pressure loadings?
- How reliable is the carbine with steel case and aluminum case ammunition?
- How reliable is the carbine with an attached suppressor?
- Is there any type of blowback in the shooter’s face with a suppressor attached (as with many AR-15 style rifles)?
- Does blowback with an attached suppressor dirty up the the carbine’s action faster than without an attached suppressor?
- The magazine well looks very shallow. How much magazine wobble can be expected, and how reliable is the carbine with a Glock 33-round magazine?
I will update this post with new videos and answers to these question as they become available. Look for an actual Savannah Arsenal review of this carbine very soon.
