Welcome to the Brotherhood, @BigredDJ. You’re in luck because the PC9 is very easy to work on, especially if you follow Chris Nelson’s videos. Check out mcarbo.com for all of their goodies, and look at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsOn-MJEXeI&feature=emb_logo for step-by-step disassembly/reassembly instructions.

I know this question wasn’t asked of me, but if I may. I have used both and still do. I prefer the slanted on my AR 15-22 and AR10, and the vertical on my Bullpup 12ga. Pick whichever one feels best for you to maneuver/operate your rifle or firearm. Personally I think the slanted one can look cooler, many styles and materials. “Function” over “form”, but “both” looks cooler Lol. Good luck brother.

Sometimes I use a vertical grip that pops out into a bipod when I’m zeroing sights or a red dot and need a steady rest. Otherwise I don’t use a foregrip at all. If I did, it would be slanted - just enough to keep my hand from slipping. BUT … tastes vary. Try both to see which you like best.

Oh, did anyone tell you we’re not your friends? We get you to spend all your money, your wife gets mad at you for buying so much gun stuff and talking shop here all the time, you get dehydrated from drooling over gun porn, you have to pay outrageous prices for ammo to feed all those purdy firearms, … :rofl:

I, personally, usually leave it alone. but you do whatever makes you happiest. Everyone’s tastes differ and no one way is the ‘right’ way.

Got my RUGER PCC 9mm as a replacement offer for another RUGER FA I sent back to the factory with a serious defect. Very generous customer service and I wanted their carbine for low cost IDPA competition. Upgraded to a knurled charging handle, moved it to the left side so I could support with right hand/shoulder during reloads and clearing malfunctions. Mounted SIG Romeo 5 on tall mount, so I could still use the iron sights. Put a Streamlight Polytac in a 1913 mount on the 3 slot front end rail, makes a great forward hand-hold. Not a lot of bucks and it handles very well, but… curved 5# trigger and extractor leave something to be desired, so an MCARBO flat trigger and extractor will get me two steps closer. Have to wait for the trigger spring kit to get a 3.something# trigger pull, someday.

Oh yeah, switched to GLOCK mag sleeve and sanded/filed the hell out of it so that I had Gen 1 (NFML) drop free 100%, I don’t live in a free state, but they do Grandfather large-cap mags.

Welcome to the Brotherhood, Keith. Sounds like you’re getting your PCC squared away. You might want to talk with @Kona - he’s doing competitions too.

I installed a Volquartsen trigger in mine, awesome piece and it’s a drop design.
Worth every penny.

Trying to glide in on the cheap, the drop-in trigger group was nice but pricey.

It is, I got mine in a sale so it was worth it for me.

The only hitch for my upgrade is they’ve stopped shipping the reduced trigger pull 3 sprIng kit, so I’ll have to take the trigger group apart twice before I get to the equivalent of your Volquartsen solution.

Yikes!

Well that’s a bummer!

I’m in a leg brace for the next 12 weeks, so it’s the least of my worries. Too many IDPA/USPSA/USSC matches this summer, something had to give and it did on stage 5 of 7. Doing so well…
