Pistol Caliber Carbines (PCC) are fun and consumers have several options. AR-15s chambered in 9MM, the CZ Scorpion, the Ruger PCC, and the Grand Power Stribog are all popular options. Some people don’t necessarily want a dedicated PCC and just want the ability to slide their sidearm of choice into a chassis that turns a handgun into something a bit more maneuverable. The most notable being CAA’s RONI and MCK chassis’ for Glock and other popular pistols.
I’ve owned a RONI and while it’s a cool idea, the chassis simply feels flimsy and it was very apparent I was shooting a slip-on chassis versus a dedicated PCC. Well at Primary Arms Range Day I was fortunate enough to get hands-on with a prototype of the unreleased Strike Industries P320 MC (Modular Chassis).
My first impression was, “Wow. This thing is rock solid. It feels like a dedicated PCC.” That’s because it’s built like one. The P320 MC is user-customizable from the ground up starting with a SIG 320 fire control unit (FCU) as a base. From there, buyers can choose from 15-20 different modular components to build their P320 MC in any configuration they like. Custom grips, charging handles, brace adapters, rail lengths, mag holders, and even different plate adapters.
Shooting the P320 MC was awesome. The model Strike Industries had available was equipped with a neat looped charging handle that was easy to manipulate. The P320 MC was sturdy, comfortable to shoot, and, as mentioned, exponentially customizable.
Hitting steel at 20 yards was a breeze. The P320 MC is still under QC and development and I did experience a single stovepipe in the 4 magazines I ran thru it but that’s all part of the process. The Strike Industries reps were quite receptive to feedback and I really applaud their willingness to take risks, something I wish the firearms industry would do more of.
This was easily my favorite product that I was able to test out at Primary Arms Range Day 2021. While pricing is still to be announced, it should be available for order by end of 2021. I will be eagerly keeping a close eye on this one and you should too. For more info, click HERE.
