With precious few guns on the market chambered to fire it, and even fewer load options for those guns, the 5.7x28 mm FN cartridge has seemingly been on life support for most of its 30-year lifespan, kept alive only through the patronage of a small but dedicated fan club and select military/government agency adoption.

Caught in a self-perpetuating loop where a deficit of firearm options has led ammunition makers to deem it unworthy of their finite production resources—and vice versa—what the 5.7 mm has really needed to help resuscitate it was a major gunmaker willing to break the vicious circle by taking a chance on it.

From the female perspective, nice firearm for CC. Highly stress, HIGHLY suggest spending some extra for custom grips. Found the grip awkward for smaller hands. Sorry guys. But a girls gotta find that perfect balance for her platform and the custom grips help set it up. I’m still a S&W girl.
