so you can get .22 mag performance out of what used to be a .223? makes it more sporting I guess

Maybe someone doesntlike the ergonomics of the P90, so they get the same round in an AR?
Whats the point of a 9mm upper, or .50 upper? Whats the point of a .22 upper or.45 upper?

because they are actually different calibers, 5.7 is really just .223 lite, kind of defeats the purpose.

9mm can be suppressed

.50 doesn't require any explanation

.45 can also be suppressed

.22 is good for plinking, or for indoor ranges which only allow rifles in .22

but i don't see much point in 5.7 in an AR, but if that's your thing, go for it i'm sure you won't enjoy paying for the ammo though....

And ergonomically? I dont think a P90 is similiar to an AR. I mean, there both black, but beyond that......

Thats basically what I was getting at. Plus the current cost of 5.7x28 makes it seems even more of an odd purchase. Different strokes for different folks, I suppose

who cares. Guns is guns


that's what i'm thinking. y'all are way too damn picky. i'm just happy that more black rifles and variations of existing rifles are being made... it could be a whole lot worse.

And once again I ask...ergonomically? If you have a 5.7 pistol it would benice to have an "SMG" of the same caliber.
Link Posted: 1/7/2006 7:33:03 AM EDT
that's a good point. i can't comment on the ergonomics of the PS90 as i've never held one, but i'm sure that some people find an AR to be easier to use.

Replace the buffer tube with an air canister?
Link Posted: 1/7/2006 7:45:51 AM EDT
That belongs on one of those californian single-shot/no-magwell lowers... Those ARE still legal in CA, ya know! You can also get the upper in CA since it's not a firearm! (given of course a side-ejection version)

Compact 50-round mags is a nice thing, too.

Despite it being in a smaller caliber, I like it! I'm sure it will kill someone/thing just as dead, too.

Probably better. You know, the AR being nothing but a ridiculous overpower .22 rifle. Nothingbut a worthless mouse gun. Everyone knows 7.62x39mm is vastly superior to that piddly .223 round. I mean hell, I've passed kidney stones bigger then that cutesy little bullet in the 5.56.............

I'd like the one that uses the same mag as my 5.7. pistol and rifle on the same ammo and magazine.

Well maybe atlest deadish anyway.
Link Posted: 1/7/2006 9:22:53 AM EDT
Im guessing that it does away with the buffer.

If it does, with a folding stock, it would make a nice compact rifle.
Link Posted: 1/7/2006 10:46:18 AM EDT
Well I think it's all about the way the bullet performs now isn't it? supposedly the 5.7 breaks apart (Frangeable) and becomes more deadly just like the .223 EXCEPT that it does'nt need a long barrel to achive the high velocities that the .223 needs. Well that's what i read anyway. Combine that with it's low recoil and you got yourself a nice Killin gun! Also it was meant to penetrate soft body armor with a pistol length barrel. But i do think that the bullet needed for that is not being sold to civies.
Link Posted: 1/7/2006 11:05:54 AM EDT
The compact 50 round magazine is a great advantage I think. A true folding stock would make this a nice and small package.

Since the upper feeds the rounds (ala FAL) wouldnt the upper be considered the "firearm" and still have to be purchased on a 4473?

"Price estimated to be $550 from the dealer."

looks to be a 01FFL item.

Now that I looking at it...I kind of like the idea. It would be nice if the the mag could be rotated back toward the stock so that it could be shorter barrel wise. But the mag would have to be redesigned so I could see why it is would be worth doing.
Link Posted: 1/7/2006 12:45:49 PM EDT
Also using the magwell as ejection port is a pretty cool idea!

Guess another case of "becouse we can!"
