Over the past few years we have seen more firearm manufacturers make firearms for the 5.7x28mm cartridge. Manufacturers such as Ruger, CMMG, Diamondback, and Kel-Tec make firearms chambered in 5.7x28mm. The round was originally only chambered in two guns: the FN 5.7 pistol and FN P90. The wider adoption of the round would make it easier and more affordable for someone to own a firearm chambered in the exotic caliber. Recently, Palmetto State Armory (PSA) released the Rock 5.7 pistol to the public. The 5.7 pistol by PSA was announced back in January at Shot Show 2022.

Below, is the product description and specs for the new Rock 5.7 pistol from PSA.

Product Description

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.
