Excellent handgun. I’m not gun nut but I enjoy shooting very much and I like interesting guns and this very much fit the bill. I can’t imagine I would be any more satisfied with an FN57
Great gun...recoil is about the same as my Glock 45 9mm...very accurate and surprisingly light considering it carries 20 round mags...only downside is ammo...buy up whatever u can find because it is hard to come by
Great service and super fast shipping. Ordered the ruger 57 and it shipped to my FFL dealer and was there in 3 days. Will definitely be back.
So far only have fired about 1000 round through, though the very first few rounds were misdeeds, other than that I have nothing but a thumbs up to give for this gun I have a matching comp tac holster for it & now is my every day carry weapon lightweight dead accurate & fun to shoot somebody looking to play around with some 5.7x28mm the ruger in my opinion is the best option for the price option buy one you won’t regret it !
The Ruger 57 beautifully complements my slim, long, light frame and hands. Overall, the shooting experience is a dream. That's what it's all about, right? Well, maybe. There's some baggage.
5.7x28 is a bit pricier than it could be if there was higher demand. It's NOT a growing niche like 380 has over 320. Unless you truly enjoy working out your thumbs, you will need autoloaders. Yes, plural. The only one I could find loads 7. If you have just one loader, it could take you all day to recharge one magazine! I needed a bundle of them.
If you choose to use a holster, finding a proper one could be problematic. The "57" has nearly the print of a 1911 but much lighter and slimmer. It flops like a fish in my generic 9mm holster. Concealed carry? Nope. Open carry? Again, extremely limited. Supply and demand. I could not find a crossdraw anywhere.
Sadly, the "57" will probably spend a lot of its lifetime in it's box unless the bore catches on. It deserves much more appreciation than it will get.
