I recently came across an interesting product from USA Knife Maker Supply that I had never seen before – the PCC Takedown Protector. The goal of the product is to seal off the barrel lug and receiver socket where the two halves of the Ruger PC Takedown Carbine or Charger combine.
The PCC Takedown Protector from USA Knife Maker
I would like to introduce our new product called the PCC Takedown Protector. This product is an accessory for the Ruger PC Takedown Carbine or the Ruger PC Charger. I have listed the benefits and information here:
- Used to protect the mating pieces for the barrel lug and receiver socket from dust and debris
- A solution for storage and transport, easy to remove and reuse
- Made in the USA
- Made of lightweight, smoky black photopolymer material

I am a big fan of the Ruger PC Carbine and I have reviewed both the modern PC Carbine Chassis edition and the PC Charger Takedown – both are great guns and I’m surprised Ruger never thought to put something like this with the gun as a standard option. I personally store my PC Carbine Chassis in its assembled form but one of the benefits of having this type of rifle is the ability to break it down for backpacking or more tight storage.
I could see these plugs coming in handy for storage in dusty areas or when out backpacking or on the range in particularly sandy/dusty places to prevent debris from fouling up the mating process. I was sent a set of these by fellow writer usaknifemaker.com and can also be found in retail stores as well for the same price. If you’ve ever been concerned about protecting the mating surfaces of your PC Carbine Takedown rifle, then I can say that these work great.and I tested them out on my personally owned Ruger PC Carbine. They work as advertised and the plastic they are made out of is just soft enough for you to squeeze the dust covers into place without them falling out.
