New Five Seven came today!!!!

Post by drakeky » 06 Jan 2010, 17:23

As you guys can see this is my first post. I have been lurking here a while and interested in one of these handguns. I finally got mine today. What a fine handgun. I also bought a Lasermax Uni-Green laser for the picatinny rail and it really sets off the gun. I went out and shot it a few times this evening and I am very impressed with the function and accuracy of the pistol. I am impressed and there is no looking back now. May even have to look into the AR57.

Congrats and welcome! But I would look into a PS90 instead of an AR57 :D That's just me though :laugh:

Sweet!

Get a PS90 and SBR it if you live in a free state. AR57.... Has a bad reputation for awful QC. Great idea, bad execution.

Five-SeveN? Isn't that one of those new ALL PLASTIC, striker fired guns that shoot one of those anorexic rounds that is pretty much a .22 magnum?

haha, you just wasted your money, I'll stick with my big caliber .45 with superior knock-down power, THANKS.

:p
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.

Welcome.

I have an AR57 and hopefully am working a trade for a 57 pistol as we speak.

I have already got the first 20 bucks saved for a PS90, just need 1480 more to go :lmao:
