When you’re not a Glock or a Colt shooter – Quarter Circle 10 once again proves why they offer more PCC lower styles than anyone else on the market. In their most recent offering, QC10 introduces the S226 stripped lower receiver, engineered for use with Sig Sauer P226 magazines.
About the S226
Made from 7075-T6 aluminum, the newest billet lower in the QC10 family is compatible with Glock-style bolts and can accept any mil-spec buffer tube. According to the company, the proprietary parts (LRBHO, mag catch, ejector, etc) needed will be included with the QC10 S226 lower but will still require a standard mil-spec lower parts kit to complete.
The lowers are available in either stripped or as a receiver set. While the S226 will work with any mil-spec upper, for proper function with calibers other than 9MM, QC10 recommends pairing the S226 lower with an enlarged ejection-port upper, like the QC10 Pistol MUR.
MSRP on the stripped lower is $285 and is available for purchase and shipment to the FFL dealer of your choice now via the QC10 website.
The site does warn that California buyers to check with your transferring dealer before ordering. Many CA dealers are unable to process any more transfers before the end of the year.
QC10 did say that they have a PCC lower engineered to work with M&P magazines in the works and are looking at a possible SHOT Show 2019 offering. More to come as information is available.
