    Good info, thanks for posting. I had no idea the 5.7 was that clean-running of a gun. I personally have never picked up one up though because unless you are shooting at someone with body armor, its a very ineffective round.

    Uh, . . . where do you get "very ineffective round"? Have you seen what the SS197SR does to bone? There is a pork shoulder test on youtube. Hardly "ineffective". How about sticking to the topic instead of bashing the round.

    Mice?

    That is an intriguing idea. I wonder if it is possible given the 50kpsi operating pressure of the 5.7x28.
    The gun is loud now.....with a shorter barrel?.......be interesting to find out.

    If the bullet doesn't stop the intruder, the percussion will.

    I don't think anyone will make a conceal carry sized pistol in 5.7x28.

    Well, not with that attitude :D. As FNH releases its death-grip on ammo production and licensing, we may see more platforms arise (there's already the successful AR57 and that Masterpiece Arms monstrosity)

    I think it's an interesting idea simply because the 5.7 is powerful for its size, especially its width; the most limiting factor for using typical calibers in small guns (large bore equals large barrel diameter, magwell, frame, etc.). The Five-seveN barrel is quite narrow (10mm, IIRC), so it would seem to be suited to this application (perhaps better than as a full-size service arm :what:)

    Oh, yeah, and there's this:
