Re: NEW (2015) 5.7X28 handgun

Oh hey, life on the forum again


Isn't the DAO so an officer can't be accused of creating a hair trigger situation. Or some thing like that..?

The ammo market is killing the 5.7 I think. Sure don't help

Looks like they retained the foward trigger guard grip. Do any of you use that on you pistols?

How come that weight was chosen over a lighter one at higher speeds?

I recall you stating speed and lightweight projectiles are key in the 5.7. Seems the speed would help expansion too.

Always curious.
