Re: New Ruger 5.7?

My Ruger 57 is not reliable with FN ammunition, only American Eagle. The magazines are highly variable and crude. Now my trigger shoe has started sticking and not allowing the gun to fire. The FN 5.7 pistol is far superior to the Ruger in every respect. I've only fed mine FN ammo, as the AE ammo is...

Re: New Ruger 5.7?

Just saw this in a magazine I picked up today.

Methinks FN is irritated by Ruger :D

Re: New Ruger 5.7?

Oh I definitely wasn't trying to knock Ruger at all. At that price point, there's only so much polishing you can do during mass production. It's definitely well made. Either supply is low or demand is high, or both. I am a FFL, but since I'm nowhere near a large one, all of my distributions are allo...

Re: New Ruger 5.7?

So I just picked up a Ruger a couple of days ago. My main reason for picking one up are mostly cost: - Sometimes things can get filthy at the ranch, and I hate to put the poor Five-seveN through that - When I travel, I'd rather the baggage handler "lose" (read: steal) the Ruger than FN Off of the to...

H.R. 1297 - 2019

If I'm reading the text of this bill correctly, the horribly named "Law Enforcement Protection Act of 2019" (aka the "Guns Are Bad, M'Kay?" bill), would seem to make every AR/AK pistol and the Five-seveN all NFA weapons. It would also seem to not grandfather ones already out there! I'm almost positi...

DNSSEC issues

It looks like the elliothosting.com DNS servers for 57forum.com/fivesevenforum.com are having DNSSEC issues, which is causing a lot of DNS servers (eg, Google's 8.8.8.8) to fail DNS lookups for this site. I had to add an /etc/hosts entry just to post this :(. $ host www.fivesevenforum.com. 8.8.8.8 U...
