Product Description

What's in the Box

  • Ruger-57 5.7x28mm Full-Size Pistol
  • (2) 20 Round Steel Magazines
  • Cable Lock
  • Owner's Manual

The Ruger-57 is a full-featured handgun wrapped around a standard capacity, 20-round steel magazine, chambered in the high performance and low-recoiling 5.7x28mm caliber.

The most touted feature of this new pistol is its impressive ergonomics. The slender steel magazine is surrounded by a glass-filled nylon frame featuring an optimized texture, making for a natural and ergonomic grip. Despite the longer cartridges, the trigger reach is no longer than many common 9mm Luger handguns. All of the controls are easily accessible, like the 1911-style ambidextrous manual safety, robust slide release and the reversible magazine latch.

The flat-shooting 5.7x28mm cartridge is recognized for its superior ballistic performance. The lighter weight projectiles have significantly less felt recoil than 9mm Luger, allowing quicker sight reacquisition.

Rounding out the package is a windage and elevation adjustable, serrated rear sight and rapid acquisition fiber optic front sight for fast, accurate shooting; Picatinny-style accessory rail; and Secure Action™ fire control which combines Ruger's reliable and proven internal hammer with a short, crisp trigger pull and a positive reset. To top it off, the slide is drilled and tapped for easy mounting of optics with a separately available optic adapter plate, available at ShopRuger.com.

The through-hardened, billet steel slide with lightening cuts features enhanced front and rear cocking serrations. The steel barrel features a black nitride treatment for wear resistance, and the fire control housing is precision CNC-machined from anodized aluminum. The pistol is 8.65" long and weighs 24.5 ounces. It ships in a lockable hard case and includes two, 20-round steel magazines.

(5 out of 5) I Absolutely enjoy this Gun!
by from Atlanta, GA on

I purchased my Ruger 57 three months ago from Sportsman Outdoor Superstore. I intentionally took the time to let my experience marinate. I wanted to give a full review. The buying process took about 2 and a half weeks. It took 12 business days to ship and 3 days to reach my FFL dealer. The Gun was in really good shape when I picked it up. Since receiving my gun, I have put 500 rounds through it. It performed flawlessly! It’s very easy to shoot. NO RECOIL! I recommend the Gun and the website!!!

Outstanding product, very low recoil and a fun gun to shoot. Shipping didn’t take long at all couldn’t be happier. Appreciate the assistance.

(5 out of 5) Awesome gun, with a caveat
by from Kemmerer, WY on

Amazing pistol, but dont try and run a heavy pistol light like a tlr-1, it induces some crazy malfuctions due to the flex in the frame. Still my favorite.

(5 out of 5) Excellent firearm, excellent service, excellent price.
by from Houston, TX on

Firearm was perfect out of the box. Had previously been buying ammunition a few months before the Ruger 57 was available. When arrived fired FN 27 gr. and FN 40 gr. ammo. Fired without any problems. Very quick site acquisition. My wife and sister love the weapon and will buy two more Ruger 57 when more become available. Ruger really outdid themselves with this firearm. A new standard in quality at an exceptional price. Good Job Ruger.

(5 out of 5) Nice
by from Augusta, GA on

OK ordered on 6/15/2020 was shipped out on 6/26/2020 - so not bad during this era of buying guns and ammo - 10 business days. I was worried and sent email on 6/25, no response - minus 1. I did some research and found the no response is not usual. Trigger pull is about 5lbs, a little spongy but not bad. Accurate. Shot only 100 rounds because ammo is hard to find. Overall, was good transaction and I recommend the Ruger 57.

(5 out of 5) Great place to buy a gun
by from Stanton, MI on

I don't know why there's so many bad reviews, I bought my Ruger 57 on the 3rd of June and received it at my ffl in 7 day even with all this pandemic going on. I'm very satisfied with my purchase from sportsman outdoor superstore...

(5 out of 5) Awesome Pistol
by from Lagrange, GA on

I absolutely love this pistol! It is super accurate, has performed flawlessly with about 400 rds through it. No ftf or feed. Only con, I put a Vortex Venom on mine no co-witness. When will Ruger produce a rear sight.

by from Idaho Falls, ID on

First new firearm Ive been excited about in years. Flawless performance. Accurate. Fun to shoot. Only downside, the price of the cartridge. Typical Ruger quality at a affordable price. I could go on and on, bottom line, buy this gun.
