5.7x28 options

I have been considering a 5.7x28 weapon, handled the new Ruger LC Carbine and it is not a heavy log like the PC carbine, looked at the Kel-Tec P50, and the Ruger 57 pistol, watched some reviews on the PSA 5.7 Rock and it seems to be a good pistol…the Kel-tec with 50 round capacity is hard to beat compared to 20 for the Rugers…not sure which way I will go, anyone have first hand experience with any of them ?

I have the Ruger 57, it works fine and with little recoil, almost like a 22. I like the feel of the FN better but not at twice the price so i got the Ruger. The big drawback is the ammo for them, it’s expensive and not a lot of choices.

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: Probably but you know i’m right. I think only three manufactures make ammo for it now, Federal, FN and Fiocchi. Federal is the cheapest. that fn stuff is like 65 bucks a box around here.

I had been checking ammo prices trying to decide if I was going to buy something in that caliber, not cheap to shoot now for sure…

You can find the federal online for 35 a box, not too bad but still too high. you can buy 10mm cheaper and that shouldn’t be. but with said it is a fun shooter. just can’t go out and shoot 3 to 4 hundred rounds with it.

I have been looking at 10mm also, probably a Glock.

Look at the Springfield armory XDM elite and you will buy it.

I have shot the FN57 and a P90 sub gun. This round was designed to shoot through body armour. Fun to play with but it doesn’t do much but make a tiny hole in what you shoot.
Too expensive for just something to go blasting with.

I had one in 9mm and did not like it much…too heavy, too use to light Glocks.

If I ever find a Stargate I’ll know what I need to get a hold of.

With the P50 not much use to carry extra mags, maybe a good truck gun for all the lefties…

Hmm i have a glock 20 and 40 and the XDM feels lighter to me. it also has a better grip to me.
