I definitely like that price. I'm really excited about this to come out. You'd have to count me in for one.

Wow, I'm liking the pricing on these.

Please keep us posted when you start shipping these to distributers. I'll start putting a bug in Ron Shirk's ear that we'll be wanting some of these.

Great job guys.

I suspect they'll rather rapidly dominate the market with the price structure.

Again thanks for all the interest!

We updated our website this morning under the new products category.
there is a downloadable tech sheet also available.

Some of you have asked if the uppers are interchangeable.
The X series models are not built like a AR where you can change them out.

I have been in contact an we are getting all the info on becoming a sponsor of this website

THANKS!
EXCEL ARMS

I was wondering, what sort of pressures can these guns handle in comparison to FsN/PS90/AR57/TC? I'd be very interested in seeing any data, and I'm sure our handloaders would be as well.

Wow, very cool. Hopefully this will get the 5.7 a little more main stream.
What is the twist rate on the barrel? I assume 1 in 9.
I was planning on getting a keltec pmr30 but might just have to get one of those MP5-7 pistols instead. Or both. :laugh:

Hello guys and gals.
I am new to this forum so pardon me for revisiting this , I am very interested in the 5.7 round but have not built/purchased an AR57 upper because of the odd top loading mag method. Are there any thoughts of having a standard upper chambered in 5.7 built using the standard magwell?
I contacted a couple 5.7 manufacturers and got a reply from one, Excel Arms, they were very fast to reply (which was a suprise). Unfortunately they responded with "At this time we do not have any plans for a 5.7 upper to fit the AR platform, But you never know what will come up next! Thanks for the interest.."

Any thoughts?

Yea I'm interested, but I would much prefer if if the X models used FSN mags. I have enough of those, and going directly from pistol to rifle would be awesome.
