I’d buy a wood stock version in takedown in a New York minute.A friend has an older PC9 carbine and I got to check out a newer one a few weeks ago so I've compared they both with these thoughts.
I much prefer the lines and the real wood stock of the older Ruger carbine (really don't like the huge convertible magwell necessitated by it being made in plastic instead of metal). However, the newer carbine has a much better trigger and can use Glock mags so I'd be left with the choice of a good looking carbine or one that shoots better.
I was surprised at the heavy weight of both versions; over 1½ lbs heavier than an M1 Carbine. I'm not sure why the excess weight but they are what they are. As I'm not a fan at all of plastic stocks and I just can't abide a mushy trigger, it's a difficult choice for me.
I got mine from NorthwestArmory.I just called my local gun shop. They have no idea when they may see another PC Carbine as the rifle has been back ordered for sometime now.
