Ruger has recently unveiled their new Ruger-57 pistol chambered in 5.7x28mm.
This rare move by Ruger to create a handgun in 5.7x28mm has created shock waves across the industry as the 5.7x28mm cartridge has not been picked up for production among major firearm manufacturers.
Hopefully, Ruger’s 5.7x28mm Ruger-57 changes that!
Ruger will be releasing a 20 round model (model 16401) and a 10 round model (model 16402)
Ruger states “The all new Ruger-57™ is just plain cool.
Brought to you by the company that revolutionized the innovation of rugged, reliable firearms that the average American can afford, the Ruger-57™ is our most cutting-edge platform yet.
Chambered in the high performance and low-recoiling 5.7x28mm caliber, this ergonomic, smooth shooting and accurate pistol is as full-featured as they come.”
