Ruger came out with something exciting for the new year. It’s the much anticipated Ruger-57 Centerfire Pistol – the first of a brand-new platform for the company who has been on the forefront of firearms innovation since 1949.
This gun is a true beauty. Their tagline for the new model is “fun to shoot, cool to own.” They are absolutely right. It doesn’t get any cooler than the Ruger-57. Let’s take a closer look.
You’re Going to Want to Own This Gun
At first glance, it looks like a regular handgun. But, when you go deeper into the ergonomics, it gets quite impressive. First of all, the capacity is standard in this full featured handgun, with a magazine that carries 20 steel rounds. It’s meant to be high performance, but it has a very low recoil in this 5.7 x 28mm caliber. You’re going to want to own this gun once you see the features and look of it in person.
Lightweight and Powerful
The frame of the gun is very slim with a texture on the material that makes it very easy to hold in your hand. It just feels lightweight and perfect in every aspect of the weapon. The cartridge is “flat shooting” so that you get a serious boost in the accuracy rate of your shooting. It’s a fast gun that uses Ruger’s patented “Secure Action” which helps with control and an easy reset. The length of the gun is 8.65” and it only weighs 24.5 ounces. Mounting optics on this piece, if you choose to do so, is easy. You can separately purchase an optics adapter plate from ShopRuger.com.
The CEO and President of Ruger, Chris Killoy, said that “the Ruger-57 handgun is destined to become one of America’s favorite handguns, the pistol is soft shooting, accurate, powerful, and just plain fun to shoot.” So much research and development went into this handgun to make it the next hot seller that every gun owner is going to want to get their hands on.
It’s Truly Fun to Shoot
The keywords here are fun to shoot. How great is that? If you are tired of everything you are taking to the range to shoot, it might be time to pick up the new Ruger-57. It would be the perfect and advanced handgun to have in the new decade, now that it’s 2020. Ruger is certainly making a statement by introducing this line at the first of the New Year. When you purchase this directly from the company, it comes in a hard case that has a lock on it for extra security.
It’s also available in two different models, the regular 20 rounds and one that has a 10 round capacity, in case you live in a state that has those restrictions in place about magazine capacity. Either model you purchase is going to be a stellar addition to any respectable gun collection.
