Great looking rifle and pistol. My only qualm is the very limited mag capacity. I can see where patent issues would come into play over the p90 type top loading magazine though, so I understand.

I'm really glad more firearms are being made in 5.7x28. The more the better. I have hopes that this cartridge will become a lot more popular so that the price of ammo will go down and more manufacturers will start making it.

Those look pretty sweet, I'd definitely be interested if the price is right. And let's see a new sponsor!

No reason why the AR versions could not use the FsM mag.

I don't understand why they would want it to use fsn mags, if they make their own proprietary mag, they make more money selling mags. :)

True on the mags; in my humble opinion, not considering money to be made off mags, the 50 round top loading mag is a very efficient and compact design already. I'd really like to see the reliability, durability, and accuracy of these new rifles when the tests are run. An upper utilizing a AR-15 lower would by far be ideal. Price is a huge factor as always as well. It seems the $1700-$2000 P90 is suffering badly right now; I think that may have been caused in part by the AR57 since one can be built for half the price of a P90 and it has cheaper/easier to find/replace parts--who knows!

Like I said, the more 5.7 guns made, the better!!! What we need now is another ammunition manufacturer making 5.7 ammo. Perhaps if there were a proliferation of 5.7 eating rifles and pistols, then there would be a decent market for some ammo manufacturers to get into. This is my hope at least.

Because 9 round mags will be a no starter with this crowed and will hurt them in sales.

I REALLY like that pistol. If it is priced any where near your 22LR version, count me in for one.

I am looking foreword to side by side testing of the pistols with the vids put up on youtube. Same platforms so it will be great to finally be able to deal a nice mouth full of STFU to all the "It's only a 22mag" crowd.

A companion 5.7 carbine using an FsN mag would be awesome, and I'd definitely buy one. A 5.7 upper to an AR lower using the FsN mag would replace 2 of my long guns. However, from my investigating into such an animal, the feed angle of the FsN mag makes it a poor choice for a rifle unless fed thru the pistol grip like the HiPoints.
