    Just wondering how the AR 57 rifles are for reliability and what kind of velocity do they produce ? Starting to get interested in this caliber but cannot afford the PS90.

    It would be nice to have a 5.7 glock the size of a 23 and ammo around 10 bucks a box. I guess I should wake up now.

    As the OP, I guess it's my right to chime in a few weeks shy of the first anniversary of the inauguration of the 5.7x28 club/subforum and this, its earliest thread.

    In the meantime, my friend sold his 5.7 FN pistol, but kept the carbine. Have not had a chance for a second outing.

    And I notice that FN keeps dropping a lot of money on gunzine print advertisement for the pistol. (Funny -- they never push High Power ads at all......!) So I guess that FN is selling a large number of the pistols?

    Roughedgekid's comment was thought-provoking. Why hasn't some other manufacturer chambered a quality firearm in 5.7x28 that doesn't cost almost $1000? Does such a market niche exist?

    I wish I understood more regarding the production costs of mass-produced firearms......

    I have spoke with guys that use the FN pistol for Antelope, they claim that they kill them at 200 yards.
