Maybe they are still working the bugs out of them.

no 5.7x28 pistols in the catalogs for excel... I wish someone would get one of their rifels so we could get some comparative chrono data. They're blowback....if I was gonna manufacture one, I'd have considered a different mechanism like a rotating bolt or something....so it could take higher charges

Accelerator appears to be the only traditional pistol, the other one is more an AR style pistol. Both list a blow-back action and 8.5" barrel. Might be able to get some real decent velocities out that Accelerator pistol. The trade-off is that it lists a 9 round capacity. The rail along the top is a nice feature for scopes (which is a PIA to do w/ a FsN). They already have .22's with a very similar design.

...but those guns aren't in the any of the catalogs I've seen. Be interesting to find out what price they plan to release them at.

Thanks FZR! (and Excel, lol)

Those price points aren't bad so long as QC is up to snuff and the guns are accurate. I'd consider getting the Accelerator pistol when I get the scratch... be much easier to mount a scope on, and therefore hunt with or target shoot (dunno if i'd want only 9 rnds for self-defense). Also, 8.5" may produce more velocity than EA's upcoming 8" barrels.... that remains to be seen. We don't know how strong their springs are or if there might be discrepancies in the chamber dimensions and twist rate....

...but we still dont know when they will be SELLING the pistols.

I would like to congratulate Excel on taking the risk to put these weapons on the market. You are certainly on the cutting edge. Its only a matter of time before this cartridge becomes more popular.

Post merged with existing thread.

I haven't heard anything definite about Excel Arms in while, wonder how they're doing.
When you get yours, would you please post a review of the gun?

After a long shipping delay I have my MP-5.7 accelerator
First impression is very good. gun feels very solid and balance is fine. I've only put about 50 eagle 40 gr rounds through it and so far it is very accurate. The fit and finish on all moving parts is very tight. The VERY limited manual calls for 200 rd break in period. I hope the trigger pull improves, because right now the pull is insanely hard. The 9 round magazine is well constructed, but in my opinion not well thought out. 9 rounds, well ok not a big deal, but you need a little pin (supplied) to load. would be much better if they put a little thumb nub on. Haven't chrono'd yet. Ill post results.
Happy with gun. It should be a great shooter

I would like to say that I'm delighted with this pistol. I would like to say that Excel has excellent quality control. I would like to say they have outstanding customer service. UNFORTUNATLY I CAN'T. My pistol somehow got through quality control with an interference problem with trigger. Thought it might break-in, but after 250 rounds trigger still incredibly hard, and rear sight fell off!!! Customer service says 4-6 weeks. I do hope to get pistol back sometime, and I do hope that it performs well. Stay tuned :(

Both their QC and customer service are bottom of the barrel.

You have previous experience with them? Can I ask what your issue was? Did they resolve to your satisfaction? Thanks
