Ruger 57 pistol

Recommended Posts

With all due respect to HiPoint - I don't know that anybody makes ugly pistols quite as reliably as Ruger.

Nice to see another 5.7 option, though.

Not really sure about the 5.7 round mostly because I haven't looked into it all that much. However, I think this is a neat looking gun/concept. One I will probably never buy though. If 5.7 is your thing I could see this being tempting.

I think it’s been a while since Ruger made an all Steel semi auto, other than a 1911. 
 

I’ve always been interested in this round, since that idiot terrorist used an FNH 5.7 to great effect at Fort Hood, back in 2009. Before that, I thought it was a gimmick. Still seems much bigger than I want to carry, though.

I like the 5.7mm caliber very much, and several years ago I purchased an FN 5.7mm semi-auto handgun and I love it more and more every time I shoot it.  It is without peer the most reliable and fun to shoot handgun I have ever owned.  I would not hesitate to carry this gun as a self defense weapon because I have seen video of many different test firings into ballistic gel and it produces a horrifying wound channel that I honestly believe would take down almost anyone.  I used to own a larger caliber hand gun. It was a Ruger P-94 40 caliber, but truly my FN 57 shoots as hard as the Ruger ever did. Of course anyone is welcome to criticize, and completely free to do so. That's what makes this country a decent place to live.

I wonder if Ruger is ever going to develop another firearm that isn't a copy of something else.  It seems like the P89 series was the last gun I saw from Ruger that was all their own.

I'm all in favor of more choices, and when Ruger does make a copy, it seems to be a bit better or less expensive than the original.

Good thing they started copying, then. :leaving:

When is Ruger going to standardize on a thumb safety design?   Seems like every pistol with a safety has a different design and manual of arms.  This one looks a lot more usable than past designs, though that slim extended lever looks prone to snap off.

Just picked up mine up Friday and  I like the looks of it much better than the FN Five Seven.  Gonna try to get some rounds through it and my Banshee pretty soon

The magazines don't happen to be compatible, do they?

Hoped for the same thing but SxS comparison pics say NO. Ruger mags are metal too if I read right.

That was kinda what I took away from photos as well.

I hoped I was wrong once, but I was just disappointed... 😉

What are the odds that Ruger comes out with their pistol carbine in that caliber that takes the same magazines as the 5.7 pistol???

Exactly what I was thinking earlier given how well the ps90 has been for FN.

You know what? That's a really good idea.

Fingers crossed for SHOT!

I’ll check when I get home but from the looks of my CMMG mags (uses the FN mags) I don’t think they’ll work.

Just checked, they are not interchangeable

      Hi all. Recently started becoming interested in the reflex red dots and bought the Walther Q5 Match and mounted a Vortex Venom on it. I took it out to the range on two occasions now along with a few other 9mm of mine. 
      First, about the pistol:
      - Great striker fired pistol. I own dozens of guns and only two are polymer, this and my Springfield XDS 3.3. I have shot many, however. Best striker trigger out of the box that I have fired. Granted it’s not my Kimber Aegis Elite but that’s not expected. 
      - Nice balance in my hand. Comfortable grip. 
      - Holy muzzle flip. Not an issue for slow shooting but follow up shots take some work. 
      - Flawless operation out of the box. Can’t say that about a lot of new guns I’ve purchased in the last year sadly. (Looking at you Ruger and S&W)
      The sight mounted easily with the number one plate included with the Walther. It came with three different mounting plates. 
      I had been practicing dry fire and presentation with the sight and find the dot very easy to find. No issues with “searching”. While this is my first sight of this nature, I do have a rail mounted Browning Red Dot on two Buckmarks.
      I used the sight in “auto” mode and found the brightness very good for the range I visit. It was easy to zero in. 
      Shooting with the dot:
      I shot this gun today along with my Beretta M9A3. At close range I found my Beretta much easier to group nicely and tighter. Close range is 5-7 yards. 
      Beyond that, out to 25 yards, is where I saw the huge benefits on the dot. It improved my accuracy tremendously compared to the open sights of the Beretta (a gun I have tens of thousands of rounds experience with). My goal is to continue practicing speed and accuracy with the optic mounted pistol at the closer ranges. My confidence at longer ranges has gone through the roof with it!

      Is there any dealers in the tri-cities area that stock Glock 48 night sights?

      I found a really good deal on a DW Guardian in .38 super locally. I have been searching for a Guardian in 9mm for awhile and haven’t been able to find one. I Have never shot .38 super. Would it be a good carry round? I’m assuming it’s way more expensive than 9mm. Wonder if you could swap barrels and bushing to 9mm if you wanted
