    See Poll. Please vote in the poll ONLY if you like (are a fan of) the cartridge, in general.

    Dangit, just realized I screwed up my poll:

    If you voted the first choice (Don't have either), then tell us:

    A. Plan to get both
    B. Plan to get pistol only, or
    C. Plan to get carbine only
    D. Don't plan on getting either, even though it seems like a useful cartridge

    Thanks!

    Me: 1(B) - Don't have either; plan to get pistol only.

    P.S. Yes, it was the guy in the "most useless cartridge" thread voting for this one which spurred this poll thread.

    I like the bull pup carbine. But I wouldn't mind having the pistol as well. I have to admit though, they are pretty far down the "must have" list.

    I want the Five-Seven, but I'm not a big fan of the quirky (and in my opinion hideous) P(S)90.

    IMO, it could be an interesting set of weapons to have just for fun. However, before I get into buying my "just for fun" type firearms, I'm going to need to finish acquiring the end of my "need"-type things.

    So, for me, they're on the list, but just like KBintheSLC, they're kinda down on the list.

    If I ever got a P90 it would have to be the LE/military version. And that would require a Class III :banghead:

    That was my thoughts exactly. I went with the AR-57. I plan on getting the pistol to go with it some day.

    The AR mag has been gutted, cut down and now serves as a brass catcher. The EX-30 round mag will hold 50 empty 5.7x28 cases.

    And yes it is real!

    I want an AR upper in 5.7 X 28. I have a mag. (bought it just in case they get hard to get soon. ;) )

    Yep, at least the upper anyway.

    I don't have either, but love the idea. If i get a PS90, it would have to be the SBR version, as i hate the long barrel look. If i can't get that, a AR-57 upper is in order. A friend has a Five seveN on order, and i will see if i like that.

    I have the FiveseveN pistol and have no interest in the PS90 as a carbine option.

    I like the idea of the AR5.7 upper though and it might be on my future buy list.

    If I go for a Bullpup design, it would more than likely be the FS2000.

    BTW . . . I LOVE MY 5.7. It is my daily carry and it is accompanied by 61 rds of SS195

    I'm actually of fan as I think it is a great plinking cartridge. Unfortunately the price of both the carbine and pistol is insane. When someone makes an AR upper at a reasonable price I'll get one.

    Brilliant! I've had my eye on one of these uppers. Got a range report for us?

    I have the pistol,very accurate,and not one hiccup in over 500 rounds. Light recoil makes fast accurate follow up shots easy. I shoot the SS197, not completly sold on it for self defence, but with 20 rounds in the mag .....maybe

    I have a FNH USG in 5.7x28, and a SBR'd PS90. :)

    Love them both.

    I've only had it out to the range one time but here is the 100 yard target I sighted it in on.
    [​IMG]

    I was using the 40 grain V-Max tipped rounds range conditions were kind of windy so it was hard to make good scope adjustments at 100 yards with the light bullets but I did manage to put quite a few in the bull. I plan on getting dies for it and seeing what I can get out of it with hand loads.

    As far as function I did have a couple of FTF rounds where the bullet hit the top of the chamber when loading but the bolt is still pretty tight and I did see improvement as I put more rounds through it.
