Hi, New to the Sig forum and looking for comments from Ruger PC9 (the new carbine) owners regarding reliability. I was thinking about buying one until I shot a friend’s. It was fun to shoot and fairly accurate at 50 meters, BUT would jam (smoke stack) every 5-6 rounds. He became frustrated with the gun after several similar outings and sold it. Hickock 45 had similar problems during his review. Have the reliability issues been corrected? Thanks, Tom
Yes it is a reliable platform but it is important to do the barrel nut tighten down procedure correctly. Take the weapon down, barrel off, then tighten one click. Put the barrel back on. Do that again (ie one click tighten and put back on) until it is impossible to turn the barrel back on. Now back off one click. That will be the best spot and very reliable PCC.

100 % reliable but have only used OEM Glock mags. That was because I had Glock mags around. I just assumed that they were all reliable... I enjoy my gun but was surprised that it hand more recoil than I expected. Not bad recoil but I expected very little.
