Anyone get hold of a Ruger 57 yet? I haven’t seen any firsthand posts. One reportedly arrived at a local shop here and sold almost instantly.

There were about a dozen on GB yesterday. Prices are still up there though IMO.
Reminds me of the SR1911 when they first came out.

What is the Problem, for gosh sake you can easily get a thousand rounds for about $500.00. And every body needs a gun that can penetrate certain body armor. Gee, you would think they would be selling like hot cakes. And even more rounds than a Sig 365. I just don't get it.

So how many do you own?

22 tcm out performs it. No lacquered cases to deal with. Can get it in a 1911.

Zero, and do not want one, no need for one. A lot of nice guns I would much rather put my money out on. Lol, sorry you missed that.

I’m looking forward to getting my hands on one. I’m hardly ever excited by anything introduced at SHOT, but Ruger has impressed me with their efforts in recent years (Mark IV, the 57, etc).

Yup, got one for $649 yesterday plus two boxes of American ammo for it. Took it out and shot it right away, sweet pistol but louder than most. Trigger pull was "good", felt to be less than 4#, sights are OK, ergonomic safety is great and take down and cleaning was a breeze. I was shooting at 4" round steel targets, out of a full clip of 20 I probably hit it 15 times at about 75' which for me, at 73, was OK (I guess). Came with 2 20 rd mags which was nice and the hard case was a step up for Ruger (lockable) and stout. All in all I was impressed and would say you'll probably be able to get them in the high 500's once they get out there, probably this summer. They are hard to get for sure, one of Davidson's Ranger reps was at the store and he hadn't even held one yet, mine was the first one he'd tried. Said they're having trouble getting them to "his" dealers, etc. Only reason I got one is the dealer whom I bought from was one of the bigger dealers and have an in with Ruger. How about a PC57?

I think you got a good deal at $649. I would give that right now for one. I have bid on two on Gunbroker and both sold for way more than I would pay.

Picked one up on Saturday for $650. Took it to the range immediately. Nice ergonomics for me. Accurate right out of the case.

They are hard to find. I had spoken to this same dealer about a month ago. He had one for display and was taking orders back then. Saw him again Saturday and he had one for sell.

I really like this handgun.
