U.S.A.-( Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR) is thrilled to introduce a cutting-edge new platform – the Ruger-57 pistol. 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 reacquisition.

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 Secure Action™ fire control which combines Ruger’s reliable and proven internal hammer with a short, crisp trigger pull and a positive reset. To top it off, the slide is drilled and tapped for easy mounting of optics with a separately available optic adapter plate, available at

“The Ruger-57 is destined to become one of America’s favorite handguns,” said Ruger President and CEO Chris Killoy. “This pistol is soft shooting, accurate, powerful and just plain fun to shoot.”

The through-hardened, billet steel slide with lightening cuts features enhanced front and rear cocking serrations. The steel barrel features a black nitride treatment for wear resistance, and the fire control housing is precision CNC-machined from anodized aluminum. The pistol is 8.65” long and weighs 24.5 ounces. It ships in a lockable hard case and includes two, 20-round steel magazines (10-round, state-compliant model also available).

I shot and liked the fiveseven but the price kills my soul! This new ruger calls to me!
It even looks way better than the fiveseven! The round though expensive has definate uses and shoots flat!
The good news for fn is when i get one of these its going to make me want a ps90 alot more!!
I am a huge fan of the stargate series! Although a .224 bullet is the last thing id use to combat durable aliens with. The p90 is still a cool gun.


My local gun dealer told me, $650.00 price range.


I have always been a fan of the 5.7 X 28, but couldn’t afford the FNs’ high prices. Now, hopefully, this Ruger will be available AND affordable. If so, once again, my comment that, “I don’t need or want any more guns”, will be proven to be untrue.

I didn’t know that the fire control group/chasis assembly was made of aluminum… interesting.


Can Ruger not make a decent looking semi auto gun?


If I were POTUS, I would outlaw the metric system in America. We use the Imperial system, and if the rest of the world doesn’t like it, tough s*** – they can go sell their s*** elsewhere.


Orrrrrrr. We could get with the program and join the rest of the normal world. Why not make life much easier??

Ansel Hazen

Because it isn’t. When I went to school I got a halfway decent education and have no trouble figuring out 3/4 is three 1/4-s. Unlike the schooling of today where kids can’t do math without some electronic device in their hand.


If you can’t see why having our country’s system of measurement match 99% of the rest of the world would be easier, you didn’t get anywhere near a decent education.


That is your opinion….Following all the time does NOT make you the “smart one”, and that is a FACT !

Dr. Strangelove

Yeah, the imperial system requires thinking, which 99% of the world is unaccustomed to.


Zackley !


Because buying 2 sets of wrenches or sockets or any kind of tool to carry around to work on ONE machine makes total sense. I might not have grown up in the good ol days but I sure like to work smarter not harder.

Heed the Call-up

M, you mean like Torx, star, and Allen wrenchs? Or flat head vs Phillips head screwdrivers. Having two sets of screwdrivers is just so difficult. LOL


Uhhhh, NO ! Seems that “joining the rest of the *normal* world” hasn’t proven to be very good/productive to MANY of those pied piper “followers”…. I have ZERO problem using the Imperial system OR converting theirs to ours…

Heed the Call-up

M, life is easy for those that can think on their own and do math. Should we also switch to the Euro? I have no trouble when going to other countries that use metric and Celsius, and their own currencies. The UK has switched their liquor bottles from 750 ml to 70 cl, should we do the same, too? The smaller bottle is about 1.7 ounces less. We gained about 0.2 ounces when we switched from fifths to 750 ml. So I guess that was a benefit. 🙂 Should we also stop using English since most people in the world… Read more »


I assume the same reason we don’t join the rest of the world and ban most firearms…


You’re an idiot. Only the US, Liberia, and Burma are refusing to match the rest of the planet’s standard system of measurement.

Dr. Strangelove

Calling names really reinforces your argument.

Heed the Call-up

KC, many Caribbean countries are based on the US $, why hasn’t the rest of the world converted to US $? Or should we also adopt the Euro, it would be so much easier…. LOL


When we get a sensible global carrying regulation in place globally is when I’d give more than zero flocks about the whole ‘abolish the imperial system’ thingy. Like that would ever happen.

Will Flatt

From what I’ve seen & heard, this pistol is even better than FN’s 5.7 original. I hope this marks Ruger’s return to the levels of quality that were present in the P-series pistols, which I enjoyed immensely back in the 90’s when I had a P95DC.

Dr. Strangelove

Yeah, the last few Rugers I purchased were of poor quality control. I’m not sure if I’ll buy another one.
