Reviews
AR-15 5.7mm Upper Assembly with 16 Barrel is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid and fun; my new favorite plinker! The AR-57 upper is a very solid piece of ordnance, and is rather front-heavy, but don't let that stop you. With the single-billet receiver and fore-end carved 'from the solid', you get no muzzle-flip, and essentially no recoil. It's a pure blow-back design, and it needs a very little in the way of maintenance - cleaning is simplicity itself.The receiver fits perfectly in any standard AR-15 lower receiver, and there are picatinny rails in all the usual places. There's *just* enough room to set both optics and off-set iron sights, if you *really* must have both. Realistically, the rear-most top rail can only accommodate relatively short optics, or you start to interfere with the magazine. The rails themselves are perhaps a bit narrower than standard; Magpul accessories fit perfectly, but other accessories may need a bit of shimming to ensure a tight fit.Magazine changes are a bit odd, but you'll get used to them. Be *certain* to buy quality magazines - I bought two off-brand magazines from another vendor, and had both fail at exactly the same point, in exactly the same way - poor-quality follower springs took a 'set' and failed to cleanly feed a round, resulting in a failure-to-feed jams. Speaking of which - familiarize yourself with the operation of the magazines and clearing failures-to-feed *before* you get to the range - these are NOT like any other firearm you've ever fired!Now to the good stuff: Firing it!The AR-57 has essentially NO perceptible recoil. It's not a long-range sniping weapon; it's a short-range light-duty carbine. It's more than adequately accurate within its useful range - about 150 yards, maximum. It's also FUN! Load up a 50-round magazine, and it feels like you can shoot all day. Sure, loading the magazine is a bit long-winded, but it's worth it, especially if you charge several magazines before leaving the house - you can shoot and shoot and shoot! If 5.7x28 ammo were any less expensive, or any easier to reload, I'd be shooting this every day - It's THAT much fun! I ditched both magnifying optics and iron sights early on - a simple 30mm point sight is really all you need for this upper - you're not going to be shooting any further than 150 yards, or you'll be 'mortaring' your shots onto the target.If you've got varmints - woodchucks, coyotes, gophers - in close quarters, this is perfect. I wouldn't try taking anything heavier than varmints with this round, though - just not enough 'oomph' there. And certainly not at any lengthy range! Tin cans, gourds, and squash, though - Those are in serious danger!The AR-57 has become my new favorite 'plinker.'
