Ruger 57 & .327FM

Yeah, I know, the .327 is a revolver round, but, anyway...I see Ruger has their version of the FN 5.7 pistol, and it looks like an interesting round. I read up on the .327 Fed Mag and finally bought a GP 100 in the caliber (and like it a lot.) It's refreshing to see Ruger isn't afraid to maybe revive an interest and invest in a couple unpopular rounds. The .327 FM comes in several different packages. So, I'm wondering if maybe they have plans in the works to do that with the 5.7x28mmFN cartridge? The Ruger-57 pistol I saw in American Rifleman magazine seems like an interesting pistol; more so than the Security9 that I had. But, if it were to come in something like the MarkIV platform, I may be a little more interested. Either way, it's nice to see Ruger having the foresight to revive interest in different flavors besides vanilla and chocolate.

I agree. I'm not even remotely interested in 5.7 caliber but variety and choice are good.

It is great Ruger stepped up. I think they will sell a suprising number of these pistols. Not to me though.

Hog Leg Hauler will become famous soon enough
I'm not interested in a 57, but those that do need to check out the price and availability of the ammo before buying. Guess those that spend $28-34 per box of 50 have more $$ to burn than me. Ya I know some boxes of 20 centerfire rifle ammo costs that much, but going out shooting a high power rifle ya don't burn the same quantity of ammo ya do with a handgun, esp a semiauto (except maybe a AR15 type). That's why I reload and 57 brass is yet available for reloading last time I looked. Have read that the 5.7x28 ammo is one of the most difficult and sensitive round to reload. JMO!!! Wonder after the high fives and hullabaloo wears off of Rugers 57, if it will still be in Rugers stable after a couple of years. A lot of skeletons are in closets from various firearms manufacturers rattling due to wonder guns being offered to the shooting public that were popular, but then the light burned out on them.

Like I said I have no interest in 5.7 anything but this new Ruger seems to have rocked the 5.7 world. Based on the reviews I'm reading FN should be very worried. Owners of FN 5.7's just saw the value of their pistols drop by half.
