    A while ago I asked the members here about what CZ to get next.

    Sadly I had to pass on purchasing one at the moment.

    My desire to own an AR-type rifle/carbine finally over powered my self control.

    I didn't want a 'traditional' type AR, I wanted something unique, so I ended up jumping on the AR57 bandwagon. :)

    It cost me more than I would have liked to spend, but I'm still content in my purchase.

    FYI I haven't recieved the gun yet, I puchased it off gunbroker and it's on the way, but I still reserve my right to brag about it.. :D

    So, without further ado I present to you my AR57..

    Very nice purchase and a great collection. Is that Saiga in .410 ?

    Yeah, the saiga is a .410, I probably wouldn't have bought it because it's such an odd calibre, but I managed to picked it up for just a bit over 200 (including shipping), so I couldn't resist!

    Nice rifle and great collection. I think a revolver should be next on the list.

    Yep, revolver and a good bolt action are on my 'to buy' list.

    There are just too many choices...:D

    You know, the funny thing is, that .308 no longer has a scope mounted, the mounting piece just can't handel the recoil of a .308 and shakes loose every 20 some-odd shots.

    From what I've read about the ATI AR57 uppers, they should maintain 1 MOA accuracy @ 100 yards with the correct load, obviously the projectile isn't that heavy or fast, so I question its capabilitys beyond 150y, but when I get it, I'll let you guys know. :D

    That is freakin awesome! I didn't even know they made those, I had to google it. I would grab one of those in a heartbeat. I'm guessing the recoil is similar to a .22lr?

    I have so many questions about this I don't know where to start.
    Where do the shells eject? Is the "mag" a dummy mag or a standard AR mag for show?

    Yes, the magazine protruding from the bottom has been gutted, and the walls have been trimmed flat, the extracted casings eject down and are caught in the 'dummy' mag. Perfect for when I get my 5.7 dies.

    I haven't shot the AR57 yet, but I've been told the recoil is almost non-existant. Going off my experience with the fiveseven handgun, I'd say 'almost non-existant' is an accurate term. :D

    Well I'm sold, please keep us posted when it comes in as to fit and finish, reliability, accuracy, etc. Looking forward to hearing about it.
