Has anyone actually seen these in shops and what the price range is. I checked and Ray's said $799 but I thought this gun was going to be between $600 and $700. Is it just because they are so new that they are demanding a premium?

Thanks!

they seem to be in short supply and none of the box stores have them yet.

I was able to handle one yesterday. Surprisingly lite. I did not like the grip but that’s just me. $799 @ Wiley’s gun shop.

Ray's Hardware is high on everything, always have been, always will be. The only things they're reasonable on are NFA items.

When I'm buying new handguns I always order them from GT Distributors or my dad if I can get him motivated enough to order one from distribution.

I ordered it through my favorite gun shop back home, I'm not sure who his distributors are.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is the great draw to the 5.7x28 round. I think I must be missing something.

Other than it being light armor piercing, not much. Guns are big, ammo is expensive.

Ammo has come way down and the Ruger is on a 1911 frame. 1650 to over 2400 fps, .22 caliber recoil and very accurate. The 57 still seems to be pre-sold before they arrive.

It has a 1911 style ambidextrous safety, and 1911 style mag release. That's about all it has in common with a 1911. It's not a 1911 frame.

Saw someone buying one at Bass Pro Saturday. That was the last of what that store got. First time I have seen 57 ammo on the shelf at a basspro as well. Cabela's has stocked it for years
