        God I hope the final version looks better lol

        Like all the proportions are a little bit off and the whole thing is too small compared to an MP7, like the whole gun almost looks like it's at 80% scale vs the real thing

            Yeah for sure which is why I opened with hoping the final version looks better. I understand that they basically 3d printed a chassis for the Rock

            I'm concerned that they aren't going to fix the proportions of the gun, though. It's just noticeably smaller than an actual MP7 is, and anyone who's had hands on one (for most people, myself included, this usually means a rental range), it's surprising how big the thing is when you first pick one up. With the stock kicked the whole way out it's just a bit smaller than a mk18. Their plan for the pic rails is also a novel solution and it's cool that that's going to attach over top of mlok
            slots for maximum O P T I O N S, but again the proportions are all funky and those rails are super close together, even close than the real deal which also has super limited real estate.

            Don't get me wrong, I hope the x57 ends up being a solid gun, I share a lot of people's excitement for it etc, and fully plan to pick one up at some point, but so far the "mp7 at home" style builds people are doing with Ruger LC Chargers are more compelling to me than what PSA showed off at SHOT. I have one of these guns and like it a lot, it's one of my favorite guns to shoot suppressed. Not counting tax stamp, laser, light and optic (meaning just the gun and collapsible stock) I'm into that Ruger less than PSA's claimed target price for the x57. They also have a year to iterate and improve it from the visibly rough prototype. From what I've seen so far it's just clearly not a $1k gun, especially since the Rock is on sale for like $300 every other week.

            The 40rd mags are exciting though, since several other 5.7 guns on the market work with Rock mags and nobody seems to want to make anything bigger than 20-rounders and 2 companies make extensions for them, which cost more than the mags do.

        I'm not the guy you asked but it means that FN and Fiocchi (the only guys who know how to make the coated brass) can overcharge for their brass thats prone to cracking (it cracks so often that handloaders hate the round, rather than reusing brass you have to buy new brass).

    MP7 is not superior to P90, even if they used 5.7. The weight distribution is really weird since the additional vertical grip is way too close to the trigger on a pistol-style grip which makes it very akward to handle with two hands, while the P90's bullpup design and intially odd looking ergonomics are actually much more convenient, especially when you put a suppressor on both guns (because why in the world are you not using a suppressor on a PDW?)

    Also, a transparent 50 round mag directly on top of the gun is excellent, not only the high capacity but also instantly seeing your ammunition without having to move the gun is perfect. The MP7 is not that much easier to reload than a P90 with how curved the mag is.

    • 3 weeks ago

      One small thing

      The mag of the mp7 is only curved when chambered in 4.6. If it was chambered in 5.7, the mag would be perfectly straight.

    you arent wrong, but the real answer is why not make the MP7 in 9mm. Only reason why they used MP7s was because there wrent any non hot trash delayed recoil 9mms(or other pistol cartridges) of similar size on the market. The limited success of the MP7 isnt an advertisement for the desirability of PDW style cartridges its a reminder that really small shoulder fired firearms are a useful niche.

              Yes? We have literally decades of bullshit abortions that have finally culminated in decent roach MP5s being affordable. It'll happen with MP7s too, and Tommybuilt's clones and the sheer amount of interest in PSA's prototypes are probably the beginning of a very long process toward people eventually getting those guns.

But hopefully the fact that it seems to have generated maybe the most buzz of anything at shot show aside from the new Holosun MFAL shows some of these other companies how much money they're leaving on the table. For that matter hopefully the chink MFAL is also a kick in the ass for other laser manufacturers but unfortunately they generally price their units so high because they need to justify overcharging the DoD.

        It's not "We can't." it's "Why would anybody bother?"
        Direct blowback is cheap and reliable while gas operated is expensive and ever so slightly less reliable. 9mm doesn't need Gas Operated and doesn't benefit from it.

        Gas operated advantage is that it scales better for larger rounds. You could use Blowback for .30 cal but you end up with the Maxim Gun.

    I want an mp7 in 5.7, and wouldn't mind the psa one.

    However the round is intended in a spray weapon with high rate of fire. In semi auto you lose most of the advantages and an actual pistol even smaller and more compact is better.

    Special ops like them because it is about as light as you can go and still reliably fight an armed target. And often they carry lots of other stuff, and may be running or swimming long distances in and out. Not because it is the best thing to engage with. It consumes ammo fast, needs large bursts for effectiveness and is for short range. As soon as the element of surprise is lost it becomes a liability.

      Now, obviously I would never ever do this and nobody here would ever do this, but the new PSA MP7 at home is built on their Rock 5.7, which is literally a 5.7 Dagger, which is literally a gen 3 Glock.

      Meaning, theoretically, drop in auto sears for it should be a pretty trivial task for anybody with access to a mill or even a 3d printer. It wouldn't surprise me to see some SOTs in the wild making full fun x57s within a year of release.
