Glock is also the "only pistol of it's kind"...and it's MOSTLY made of traditional steel.

The FsN is expensive because we'll PAY IT!
The frame is by far mostly polymer except for the rails molded into the polymer.

There was a "rumor" at Shot Show 2017 that Sig is bringing a 5.7x28 to market soon.

It would be cool, as I"m a Sigaholic, but seems unlikely it's the one Jay is talking about coming to market. Sig isn't likely to use FN's magazines and they have already released the glossy final print 2017 product catalog (which did include the new P220 Legion).

I wish it was Sig who was going to offer the new 5.7 handgun; just doesn't seem likely. :/

I would be glad if it weren't Sig who brings it to market. Their old German guns were great, but all this new American (sadly) crap is unreliable as hell across the board (source: personal experience with multiple new and used Sigs in the past 6 years). Their 9mm's are the only gun that are somewhat reliable, until you get some sand in them and they fail (source: MAC's test of the overpriced Legion).

With the lower quality AE ammo, I wouldn't want a less reliable mfg to make a less reliable firearm... that would be disastrous.
