With Vista's ammo brands (Federal, Speer, etc.) pumping out new 5.7 rounds as fast as they can to keep up with the trend, even more 5.7-chambered guns are inbound.
Palmetto State Armory showed off its new 5.7mm Rock pistol, a polymer-framed striker-fired handgun that uses Ruger 57-style 23-round mags – although the base Ruger mags aren't compatible due to the longer grip length of the PSA. The guns are in production now in two variants, a $499 base model and a $550 optics/suppressor-ready model. Delivery is set to begin in about three months.
More DBX choices
Diamondback's DBX, a sweet little gun that uses an adjustable dual gas-piston action and dual aluminum receivers, was introduced in black in 2020. This year it will also be available in dark gray and an FDE-ish tan color as well. Overall length, sans any accessories, is 15.25 inches with an 8-inch stainless-steel barrel while the weight of the DBX is right at 5 pounds.
KelTec P50 goes long
KelTec was showing off the P50 on the range and on the floor itself.
They also added a $300 carbine kit that includes a fairly legit side-folding stock and a 16-inch barrel that is NFA compliant so long as you install both pieces. If you want to file the Form 1 and just install the stock, that's you. Yes, we know, the NFA should be abolished.
For now, at least, it looks like the 5.7 is just getting started.
