Hello. I bought an AR5.7 upper, and have so far run 99 trouble free rounds through it - FN & American Eagle. Not on an AR - but on a Lyndon, which is an eBay AR trigger jig modified to fit an Ares AR thumbhole stock. I'll get some pics up after awhile.

I have a second design, using an unmodified trigger jig, and a modified California compliant non-pistol grip - that I'm using as a pistol grip. Need to throw some super glue on it or epoxy, maybe sink some self-tapping wood screws into the 3-D printed plastic bits to keep it from coming apart under recoil, and then I can go shoot it. One of the least expensive 5.7x28 pistols around, and can be built entirely of parts purchased off the internet. Slightly easier than doing an 80% AR lower.

Glad this forum is available. Look forward to interesting discussions.

Thanks! It's pretty odd for a 1st gun build, but it works - 99 trouble free rounds, half FN, half American Eagle.

I really like the look of that stock and an AR57 upper. Tell me more about the setup.

Take 1 Hera Arms thumbhole stock;

1 AR57 upper;

and 1 trigger jig off eBay. Add buffer tube, castle nuts, buffer, spring, and FCS. Hacksaw well, and pin together. Go shoot.

First post here. Happy 5.7 owner!

I saw my first 5.7 at a friend's house about a year ago. I was intrigued by the design of the round, the way the pistol fit my hand (I'm 6'3" 260#) He had the blue tip ballistic rounds in it, and the kicker was the 20 rd magazine. When he opened his gun safe, there was a golden glow of light and the hallelujah chorus sang out (in my mind) in other words he really had a nice collection and the experience behind his choices. I saw my first suppressed AR up close and he had a Saiga shotgun as well (I love my Kel-Tec KSG w/Aguila mini shells, all 24 of them ready to go).
Anyway I got MY 5.7 about 6 weeks ago, went to the range once, then again a few days later to qualify for my Concealed Carry permit.
So I would love to conceal carry it, but in south Louisiana I wear cargo shorts with my button up short sleeve shirt about 10 months a year, and 501 tactical pants when I'm at work.
Concealed carry holster or clip suggestions? Or should I look for something smaller. The point to carrying concealed is to have my weapon with me as often as possible, and for it to be-well-"concealed" but also effective, and that means I have to be proficient with it.
Thanks.

Thanks. I picked up a Ruger LCP II yesterday. Great "pocket carry" gun. I also ordered a IWB holster for the 5.7 that a forum member here spoke highly of.

Welcome.

The FsN has the foot print of a 1911 just a lot lighter. This is what I use and have on me currently. The felt backing makes it very comfortable. Add to it the ulti clip option that allows you many option including not even having a belt on.

Just joined this forum to gather information. It seems there is not much going on here now, where there appears to have been quite a bit in the past. Am I missing something?

Welcome and you're right, it's been pretty dead around here for a while. Not sure if there's a reason, we do occasionally go through lulls.
