    I guess they are banking on no new AWBs and sales not in some big states?

    Otherwise, looks like fun.

    While the P90 is a neat design, 5.7 is like the official cartridge of Dunning Krueger…

    Oops. 5 hours late. And here I was thinking I was about to drop a news scoop.

    I am a fan of neither the Ruger pistol carbine nor the R-57 pistol. I don't see how I'd be a fan of this creation.

    If anything this may have been a nifty 10/22 variant. Something not unlike the PCC but lighter and handier. Heck it might even be kind of neat in a little bolt gun.

    This.

    Now, if that little guy was chambered in 9mm with a Glock mag option, and ran reliably, we'd be getting somewhere.

    If this was big "handgun" with a 5-7" barrel that you could put a brace on (or SBR) then I think it would make more sense. Basically a Keltec PMR-30 in 5.7 with better build quality. But I don't see the attraction of a 16" 5.7 rifle. Why would anyone go with that instead of a 5.56mm AR15? The AR's going to be just as handy, and shoot a ballistically-superior yet cheaper round.

    If 5.7 were ridiculously cheap this would be a fun plinker. Since it is not, I don't see a purpose for this rifle. I will stick with my .22 Mag for small varmints and be happy.

    It would be great if they made a version of LC Charger in 9mm, not just 5.7.

    At one point I converted a PC Charger to the traditional pistol layout, and the result was underwhelming on the account of how tall the fire control was. I even changed the safety from the factory cross-bolt to Uzi style thumb slider safety, and won a couple of mm, but nonetheless the result was not great. The magazine in the photo is a Glock 17 magazine, and even so the grip was uncomfortably short. The LC platform is already made with this in mind.

    I'll admit that the LCC does kind of trip my stoopid wantsies switch.

    And its recent resurgence is mind-boggling. Did some Kel-Tec employee stumble upon a rich SS190 vein while prospecting for purple polymer in the Sierra Madre?
