It's been quite awhile since I've posted anything. Just picked up the Ruger LC Carbine 5.7X28 and had to the range for the 1st time today. I never would have considered it but my retina specialist has been after me for awhile to lower the recoil on my long guns. I previously had gotten the PC Carbine in 9mm and the HI-Point (don't laugh) carbine in .45ACP. The 5.7X28 certainly fits the bill when it come to low recoil. It's like shooting my 10-22M. I shot at an indoor range off-hand at 25 yards. After 10 rounds I was consistently getting in the 9 & 10 rings. Really like the sights on it. If I ever get back to the outdoor range I'll put it on the bench and take it out to 50 and 100 yards to see how it does.

Just got back from the range with mine also.

This thing is absolutely great. Slipped a Sig Romeo5 red dot on it and took it to the range. Shot it at 10 yards and it was one raged hole. Almost the same at 25 yards. The flip up sights can be used right through the Sig red dot scope (love this feature).

I ordered the 5 shot mag extension as well as the mag loader from the Ruger Shop and they both work great. You will love the loader since your fingers get a little sore loading 20 rounds without it.

You have to play with it a little to get the stock to unfold from it's folded position but it is smoothing out real nice. I did move the charging handle to the right side which works better for me.

Windage was correct for the red dot and flip up sights. I did crank the front sight all the way down since the POI was a little low. However, I just realized that was only because of parallax from shooting at 10 yards. Will readjust it next time I am at the range.

Unfortunately I live in the very gun unfriendly state of Maryland so any magazine over 10 rounds is verboten. Weird law. Can't sell or send in by common carrier any +10 round magazines but nothing stops me from going to another state that doesn't have a round limit and bringing one or more back. I'm less than 45 minutes from PA and one son has a house in WVA and the other lives in AZ so if I really wanted to I could get the higher capacity mags. Right now the 10 round will suffice. I picked up a couple of OEM 2 packs on eBay for 2/3 the price that Ruger is selling them for plus free shipping.
