New Guns 2024: Ruger LC Carbine in .45 ACP

Ruger has expanded its LC Carbine lineup with a .45 ACP-chambered version that feeds from readily available Glock magazines.

posted on January 28, 2024

Ruger developed its LC Carbine as a lightweight, handy long gun that paired nicely with the company's 5.7x28 mm pistol. For 2024, Ruger has expanded its LC Carbine lineup with a .45 ACP-chambered version that's still handy, and best of all, it feeds from readily available Glock magazines. Thanks to its side-folding stock, the Ruger LC Carbine in .45 ACP collapses to a compact size that makes it easy to store and transport. The stock is also compatible with all other AR-style buttstocks, so you can swap out for your favorite one. A threaded 16.25" barrel makes it easy to attach suppressors, a must-have accessory for the subsonic .45 ACP. Watch our "New For 2024" video to see all the details on the new .45 ACP-chambered LC Carbine from Ruger.
