Looking into it. I can confirm Ruger was looking into 5.7 awhile ago.

I couldn't find anything about it except on a couple gun blogs. I searched ruger -57, recoil gun magazine's site, even the author's name - nada.
Would be nice if true but not holding out hope.

Another good Youtube review of the new Ruger.

Looks like it is not vaperware.

Merged & moved (Ruger thing, not a FN thing)


Little disappointed though, the blogs were saying it was supposed to be less than $500 :( Still, $800 is better than $1400
Glad to know it's for real though

And another ammo source!

My LGS is quoting $609.00 to start and mags are about $40. He thinks prices will drop down after intro.

well, my local range had one to rent so on Friday I went out and did rent it and compared it to my 5.7

-magazines will not interchange - ruger mags are slightly thinner, and a tad bit taller (try to see if either would fit in either weapon, no go). -the ruger mags are steel
-the handle/grip a slight thinner (see above)
-the safety on the trigger throws me, not like a glock. every time I fired I on the first round I wasn't sure if I was gripping the trigger correctly
-sights, I like the front (fiber), the rear was plain black (didn't like that), the fact that you can put a red dot on (co located) is a big plus (FNH? can you do something on that? or in other words, give us that option too)
-it looks just a tad bit taller (most likely due to the mag)
-Mag release took a bit to work

will I buy one? sure, I wasn't the only person that mentioned that, a lot of folks wanted to have the FNH 5.7, just couldn't bring up the money to get one, this will make it a bit easier

just my thoughts on it....

I checked with my Cabela's who simply said they didn't have any yet and do not know when they will get any. Also checked my LGS and they said they were on a waiting list with the distributors they go through.
