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.
