Nordic Components PCC Shipping To Dealers

Last SHOT show we ran a post about the new Pistol Caliber Carbine, or PCC, that Nordic Components was introducing to the world. The PCC is a lot like several other pistol caliber AR’s, but with an interesting twist as well as a seldom seen feature.

Like you might expect, the PCC has AR-style controls and will take many AR upgrades. But the Pistol Caliber Carbine keeps things interesting by incorporating a removable magazine well that allows the shooter to configure their rifle to take Glock or M&P mags. Nordic is developing more magazine wells to work with other popular guns on the market, but currently, only the Glock and M&P is available. Making things even better, the rifle locks back on an empty mag regardless of what mag well you have installed on the rifle.

With the pistol caliber carbine divisions in both USPSA and IDPA gaining momentum like crazy, I would think the PCC is a highly attractive option. Sure, there are other lowers out there that use a Glock mag well, but the ability to change it out should you decide to move to a new platform is pretty cool.

The Pistol Caliber Carbine is currently available chambered in 9mm only with a 16″ barrel, an 8.5″ SBR configuration and an 8.5″ pistol configuration. As stated earlier, the PCC will be launching with Glock or M&P mag wells with more to follow shortly. The MSRP is $1599 for all three versions of the gun, add another $100 for the California legal version.

    It’s a neat idea, but at 1600 USD I could get two 800 dollar carbines or an 800 dollar carbine an a ton of mags.

    • Vhyrus

      +1 Scorpion EVO

      • b0x3r0ck

        I like the EVO but you can do more on the AR platform.

        • Haulin’ Oats

          An AR platform, like the SIG MPX?

      • Outside of people sponsored by CZ, it is rare to see a CZ carbine shooting PCC at a major match. MPXs and 9mm ARs dominate.

    • b0x3r0ck

      They do just sell the lower by its self.

    • I don’t think this is aimed at people buying $800 rifles. Most of Nordic past products are aimed at the competition market, so I am guessing that is the market that they are going for. And $1,600 isn’t out of line for that market.

  • I’m down for CZ Evo and 75 mag wells.

    • b0x3r0ck

      I would hope they use the newer CZ p10 pattern mag wells it’s a small change but it will save on headaches.

    Another vote for the Scorpion Evo
    I am bored with AR and AK rifles
    The Evo is something new and different and fun
    Bair Arms makes a bumpfire for it that looks like great fun
    Cant wait to try it out

    This is not a new concept. Windham Weaponry has offered the MCS rifle with it’s adaptable, interchangable magwells, and lego block like lowers for years.
