I love the 5.7, I'm super glad Ruger is coming out with the RUGER 57. Next they just need to come out with the Ruger American bolt gun in 5.7 and I'll be in heaven....

BUT this is my question. I want one... like bad but I want a threaded barrel to go with it SO I can put my OSS RAD22 on it.. Should I wait a few months to see if Ruger has any recalls/other models or just get one now and pray that I can get a barrel for it later?

Never shot subs from my gun, always shot 40g loads. Definitely not Hollywood quiet but not much different than other stuff

Plenty of gunsmiths could turn your barrel and throw an adapter on it. Tornado Technologies in Oregon has done similar work for me on a number of weird guns I wanted threaded. That being said, if you want to shoot a 5.7 with subs just shoot a 22. But a 5.7 with supers suppressed is awesome too.

I'd wait a bit and see if there are going to be other models/and or problems. It's easy for me though I have a USG, and a PS90. As far as suppressing one, it isn't any different than suppressing a Creedmoor, et al.

I would wait

The first year- Shot Show- Magazines- Forums- no deals to be had on good new guns.... in 6 months- they will be overproduced and a deal or 2 can be had
