About Ruger 57

The company known all over the world as the Ruger, with the official name of The Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. is the leading producer of firearms in the whole United States. The Sturm, Ruger designs, produces and markets a full line of various models of pistols, revolvers, rifles, and shotguns, mainly for sporting purposes, however there is also several models available for the law enforcement and military use.

The Ruger 57 is a delayed blowback semi-auto pistol with an internal hammer-fired single-action (SA) trigger made by Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc.. In 1990 FN developed the 5.7x28mm cartridge in conjunction with its select-fire P90 PDW, similar to what John Browning did with the .45 ACP and the 1911. Once the P90 was introduced, the engineers ultimately realized that while it was long, the cartridge would still fit into the grip of a traditional handgun and then the FN 57 pistol was born. It took more than 20 years for another major gun company to introduce a pistol chambered in this cartridge, and that’s our Ruger 57 pistol. The Ruger 57 belongs to the category of full-sized handguns and it was originally developed as a high-capacity, flat-shooting, light-recoiling replacement for 9x19mm pistols for military type use.

These days, the Ruger 57 is mainly used for self-defense and shooting in the range. Since the market is full of well made full-sized handguns, there’s no surprise that the Ruger 57 has its own competitors. One of the biggest Ruger 57 competitors is definitely the FN Five-seveN pistol.

The Ruger 57 is as mentioned a full-sized handgun that comes with a 4.9 inch long barrel. Overall, it is 8.65 inches long, 1.2 inches wide, 5.6 inches high with a weight of 24.5-oz when unloaded. With its double stack magazine, it can hold up to 20 rounds which is more than enough. The Ruger 57 relies on the use of the 5.7x28 FN cartridge. The safety of this internal hammer-fired pistol is assured by frame mounted ambidextrous thumb safety.

Construction-wise, the frame of the Ruger 57 is made of a black polymer and it features integrated polymer grips. Due to textured grip panels, it feels good in both small and large hands. At the front of the frame is a long, five-slot Picatinny-style rail for mounting lights or lasers. The Ruger 57 initially comes with two 20-round magazines. The magazines have steel bodies and polymer base plates, and if you live in a state with magazine restrictions, Ruger sells a version of this pistol with 10-round magazines as well.  The 20-round magazines themselves cost around $40 a piece and in case it is not enough for you, they can be extended to 25+1 capacity.

The Ruger 57 comes with a billet steel slide with front and rear slide serrations and lightening cuts. Slide is drilled and tapped for easy mounting of optics. If you’re not a fan of the default fiber-optic front and U-notch rear sights, you can upgrade your Ruger 57 with some aftermarket options. Such as red dot sights compatible with this pistol or some optic plates, as this pistol doesn’t  include the adapter plate for all sights.

When it comes to accuracy and the range performance of this pistol, it seems very reliable and accurate. Getting to work on the range at 25 yards, the metal magazines loaded fairly easily without undue force being required. The magazines inserted easily, and rounds fed smoothly. Recoil with both 40-grain loads is light, and the pistol is quite comfortable to shoot. The trigger has a bit of mush to it, but works well enough and the sight picture is clean and easy to see. No matter your shooting skills, this pistol will give you accuracy. It can be even upgraded with some of these Ruger 5-7 lights and lasers available on the aftermarket. If you end up getting one of the suggested lights, don't forget to get yourself a custom made Ruger 57 light bearing holster.

The Ruger 57, due to its dimensions is more suitable for outside the waistband carry. Although it is not a concealed carry style weapon, it can still be well hidden inside a Ruger 57 IWB holster as well. Just make sure that you’re wearing a good holster with clothing that is large enough to not print with the firearm. As mentioned, the most appropriate way on how to carry your Ruger is in a Ruger 57 OWB holster or a 57 shoulder holsters. Need more options? Let’s take a look at the Ruger 57 holsters recommendations for 2021.

The Ruger 57 as a defensive weapon or for running through a competition course is a force to reckon with. Its ability to rapidly put rounds on target is exceptionally hard to match. Combine high capacity with the boom of a magnum, the occasional fireball, a good single-action trigger, solid accuracy, nice sights and extremely low recoil with minimal muzzle flip and you have a recipe for a great pistol, which the Ruger 57 definitely is. Having said that, there are still a couple of problems Ruger 57 has and it's better to read about them before you buy the pistol.

If you wish to know even more about the Ruger 57, you can find the most essential information on Ruger's official website, their Facebook page or Wikipedia. You can also exchange your opinions on this pistol with other shooters on one of the Ruger forums - Ruger Forum, Ruger Pistol Forums, or even on Ruger Talk.
