By GDC Staff
SHOT Show 2020 was once again held at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. Manufacturers rolled out new designs in the hope of luring attendees into booths to show off their latest and greatest. Guns.com was on hand to take in the sights, avoid the smells and fight through the crowds to get you the best coverage possible. We’ve compiled a list of the top seven guns at SHOT Show 2020 that made us want to dig out our wallets and slap some green down.
Ruger’s new 57, a pistol that looks to take the 5.7x28mm cartridge from a specialty caliber to standard use, was debuted to the masses at SHOT Show. With regards to specs, the new 20+1 pistol has a 5-inch barrel with a length of 8.65-inches and a weight of 24.5-ounces. It’s worth noting that the Ruger 57 takes cues from FN’s Five-seveN pistol, which was created in the mid-1990s.
Different features include a Picatinny-style rail for lights and lasers and a Secure Action fire control that Ruger says offers a “short, fresh trigger draw and positive reset.” Where the Ruger 57 deviates from the FN Five-seveN is cost — Ruger’s handgun comes in around $799
