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.

Would be interested in all ss model, no personal interest in a Tupperware model.

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'm another big fan of the 5.7. Some of the ammo is pretty dang amazing.

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

@bduncan1231, I'm pretty sure they're not very similar, but did you ever look at the mags side by side?

      I'm 18 and a new gun owner. As of now I have a pretty basic collection. One AR, one 870, a few .22s, the works. However, the obvious hurdle to owning a handgun is the federal restriction on purchasing a handgun from a licensed firearms dealer when you're under the age of 21. Buying a handgun from a private seller, however, is totally legal.
       Sadly, that limits my options dramatically. I can't have a gun from a listing shipped to me since that would require an ffl transfer, so I am limited to sellers in my area. Even then, most of the listings I've seen in my area explicitly demand a HCP, which, being under 21, I can not obtain. 
       I'm aware for many people this is to protect themselves in the event the buyer is a criminal, but this comes off as really hostile to any 18-20 year olds who want to exercise their gun rights. If I can buy an AR easily I fail to see why it should be so difficult for me.

      Hi all,
      I just got into handguns after moving away from a state that made them impossible to get.
      Are there any tips and tricks to get less expensive 9mm ammo for target practice purposes? I currently get them at Academy and its about .175 per shot. At the range I typically go through 150-200 rounds which starts to get pricey!
      Thanks in advance for the advice.

      I am admittedly stuck on Glock and Glock-like handguns.  With more than 25 years of experience with them, carrying them, shooting them, etc. I am just not going to get away from them anytime soon.  Lord knows I've tried.  Not because there's anything wrong with them, but because I like new experiences as much as the next guy does.
      THIS however is not a Glock.  There's nothing Glock about it.  Not a single Glock part rests within it.  It is 100% Zev Technologies from stem to stern, including every little piece and spring within it.  Hence the O and Z in OZ9.  Original Zev.  Not a Glock.
      It is however familiar in many ways to a Glock shooter, albeit with the dial turned up to eleven and then ripped off, thrown in your face, kicked out the window, and stomped upon outside on the sidewalk.  Zev amped it up like they hated that dial and it owed them money.
       
      This particular configuration is very similar to my beloved Glock G45.  It has the compact G19 length barrel and slide, with the G17 length grip.  Unlike a Glock it has a 1911-esque grip angle and uses a serialized internal chassis much like the Sig p320 does.  The chassis is a solid hunk of machined metal that contains Zev's take on a Glock-style sear, their fantastic trigger and trigger bar, the rails upon which the slide moves, and I guess an ounce of black magic.
      All it takes is pushing out one small pin to remove the chassis from the grip module and turn this into a G19 sized compact gun.  Which I've done for summer carry.
       
      It shoots like a dream.  The trigger clocks in at 2.69 LBS on Lyman gauge averaged across 5 pulls.  It tracks smoothly under recoil and doesn't move an iota off target unless YOU move it.  If you miss, it's the shooter - not the gun.  You just have to own that fact and accept it.
       
      I've heard my friend Dr. Sherman House ask another shooter if their Zev OZ9 was really all that or if it was just a Camry with nice wheels.  FUNNY!  I had the same questions as I considered buying it.  But, I'm glad to say it's got the goods to back up the sticker price.  This is very much a Porsche wearing a Camry suit.
       
      There are dumber ways to spend $1500.  I dig the hell out of it.
