The Ruger-57 is a full-featured handgun wrapped around a standard capacity, 20-round steel magazine, chambered in the high performance and low-recoiling 5.7x28mm caliber.
The most touted feature of this new pistol is its impressive ergonomics. The slender steel
magazine is surrounded by a glass-filled nylon frame featuring an optimized texture, making for a
natural and ergonomic grip. Despite the longer cartridges, the trigger reach is no longer than many common 9mm Luger handguns. All of the controls are easily accessible, like the 1911-style
ambidextrous manual safety, robust slide release and the reversible magazine latch. The flat-shooting 5.7x28mm cartridge is recognized for its superior ballistic performance. The lighter-weight projectiles have significantly less felt recoil than 9mm Luger, allowing quicker sight
Rounding out the package is a windage and elevation adjustable, serrated rear sight and rapid
acquisition fiber optic front sight for fast, accurate shooting; Picatinny-style accessory rail; and
Ruger’s Secure Action™ fire control which features a short, crisp trigger pull with positive reset. To top it off, the slide is drilled and tapped for easy mounting of optics with a separately available accessory optic adapter plate. Buy RUGER – RUGER-57 5.7X28 online
