Palmetto State Armory just hopped on the 5.7x28mm train with the release of their new, affordable 5.7 Rock pistol.
The 5.7x28mm cartridge was invented by FN, as well as the original Five-seveN pistol to go along with it. Ruger joined the party with their own design in 2019, and now Palmetto State Armory has too with the release of the 5.7 Rock pistol.
Because the original FN pistol carries an MSRP of above $1,300, it only makes sense that other companies have been competing to release more economical options for the unique cartridge. Ruger managed to give their model an MSRP of $869, and while much more affordable than FN’s, it still couldn’t be considered a true budget gun. With PSA’s 5.7 Rock having an MSRP of $499.99, it is now the most affordable way to get into the 5.7x28mm cartridge. The ammo is still plenty expensive, but at least there’s finally a more economical gun to shoot it with.
PSA’s description of the 5.7 Rock:
A full-sized polymer-framed pistol, the PSA 5.7 Rock introduces game-changing ergonomics and controllability. Made from high-quality 416 stainless steel and advanced polymers, this pistol lives up to today's highest expectations while maintaining the unmatched Palmetto State Armory value. Chambered in 5.7x28mm, the PSA 5.7 Rock is fed from a supplied 23 round magazine and operated by a smooth single-action striker-fired trigger mechanism. The carbon steel fluted barrel and 416 stainless steel slide have a QPQ finish for a smooth finish that also offers maximum corrosion protection to ensure longevity in the life of your pistol. This pistol is designed to work with Glock compatible sights.
Each PSA 5.7 Rock pistol includes two 23-round magazines and a soft case. As mentioned, it has an MSRP of $499.99 and it’s available now.
