Way cheaper version of the FN5.7

I really don't understand what demographic this is aimed at.

That's not a photoshop, that's a legit photo. Could it be faked? Sure. If it were, it would be an absolute masterpiece work of art.

No, that's legit...the question is why, and why now? 5.7 hasn't been a cool kid caliber in a decade. Ruger isn't usually this out of touch.

Cuz it’s probably cheaper than the FN...
Link Posted: 12/28/2019 11:51:17 PM EDT
Hmmmm...a sub-$500 5.7?

I'd be game!

Someone in another thread (I think it was the Glock .22 thread) said he had knowledge about one of the big manufacturers making a gun chambered in 5.7.

This would be nice for their Ruger carbine.
Link Posted: 12/28/2019 11:52:57 PM EDT
If this thing is real and priced under $500 I'll be in.

The last few years have been lackluster with new gun releases and this year SHOT show is still a month away and we've already got the HK SP5, Colt Python, and now possibly this.

Hoping this is true.

It would be pretty cool to fire 5.7 out of a nice little carbine. The action should support it.

A Ruger PC9 that takes 5.7 mags / this guns mags would be a nice little blaster / varminter.

can someone pull that photo from your cache and post it? They took it down

Lol, Ruger.
Link Posted: 12/29/2019 12:04:48 AM EDT
Well, I’d be interested.  Especially if this meant that the ammo would become more widely available (as I doubt Ruger would make a pistol for unusual ammo unless they knew that would change).  Nothing wrong with the 5.7 round that a cheaper (But solid) platform and ammo couldn’t fix.

Cheaper... But it's a Ruger.

But my pet peeve... You lose 4 rounds, a quarter of the advantage of going to 5.7 over 9mm. 16 round mag in a full sized gun where competing 9mm variants carry 17 or 18?

WTF, Ruger?

That'll go good with my 5.7 Banshee!

Because the FN does so well.......

But ZOMG! It's an AR15 round in a pistol!,,,,!!

Yeah, and more options are a good thing.

A very fast perusal of the interwebs says this cartridge is a bear to handload, though I have to wonder if the Ruger chamber won't have the reverse taper cut of the FN chambers, referenced in one article. At least the 40 grain .223 bullets are easy to find. I would only buy this if I could reload for it, as factory ammo ain't cheap. MidwayUSA carries exactly two loads, the 40 gr FN/Hornaday VMAX load for 53 cents a round, or the Fed American Eagle 40 gr FMJ for 46 cents a round.

Note it doesn't have the FN 20 round mag, either...but it is tempting just because it's so odd. Maybe that is what Ruger is going for, the odd.

I would be down for one.

Wait till they stuff it into the pistol carbine to save it
Link Posted: 12/29/2019 12:16:31 AM EDT
I know some people who'll get one if this is accurate.
Link Posted: 12/29/2019 12:18:02 AM EDT
Like the looks of it.

I'm not really a fan of my FN five-seven. Only have it because I have a SBR'd PS90 that I love so I keep the matching handgun.

I'd prob sell that and get this instead if it's legit.

The only thing that could make the FiveseveN pistol less appealing is if it was made by Ruger
Link Posted: 12/29/2019 12:23:43 AM EDT
It looks like old USP

This, just please no manual safety. I hate how most of Ruger’s handguns have manual safeties.
Link Posted: 12/29/2019 12:25:48 AM EDT
Put an optic in it and it would be a fun varmint gun.

Normally that would be a turn off for me too on a striker fired gun but if I buy one of these it'd be strictly a range toy not something I'd ever carry or use for defensive purposes. I have a feeling most people would be in that same camp. Anyone buying one of these to carry or use a nightstand gun
