Mini Rancher 5.7? What do y'all think?

Post by Piston Driven » 16 Jul 2012, 10:53

Ruger has a new Email the ceo thing going on, so I emailed about a mini 14 5.7, and possibly some high capacity mags, possibly SBR???? What do y'all think? :ponder: If you likey EMail the CEO campaign promises Mike Fifer CEO will read them, email him about it! Maybe it could happen??? :?:

What I think:

A) The CEO is NOT going to actually read the emails and,

B) It sounds like a great idea!

Haha I agree to both things! Although he said he would read every single one but not respond to all, we will see! But that seems like a beautiful thing IF POSSIBLE! :thumb:

My bet would be a few filters (both electronic & human) between the CEO & the email. Then if it's a good idea, pass it along.

5.7x28mm is smaller the 5.56x45

It should be a mini-mini, maybe a micro. Could be a nano, but Apple would probably sue.

Just sayin'...

That's cuz u haven't met me!

I've been wanting something like that since the day after I got my FsN. I would have to use FsN mags, though. Stainless, using the same action, would be awesome.

True, thats why it need to be like a 5.7 and a SBR with high cap mag to be exciting, fresh and a great SMG/ CQB weapon ! :facepalm: :laugh:

Wouldn't that just be an AR57?

The action on the Ruger is more robust and reliable than an AR, even a piston model. The use of an FsN mag over a P90 mag would make for a better companion carbine to the FsN.

Not quite a AR 5.7 ! Remember the hand guard extends apron 12in to accommodate the 11 in mag, so not a true SBR for size and handling, it could use the robust piston system definitely but the FsN mags I'm not sure about. if it was a mini rancher they could make proprietary mags (probably a fortune, I said not for me though cuz I suggested it! :D )with higher cap, also a sr556 version I suggested, and if they made a 5.7 AR conversion ( just a 5.7 bolt, barrel and mil spec mags) my life would be complete! :laugh:

Reworked bolt face, 5.7 barrel, and an adaptor clamped to the FsN mags.

I'd be happy with any carbine using FsN mags, even something like the High Point 9mm where mags go into the pistol grip
