    I know that the 5.7x28 gets the anti's panties all wadded up.

    No sporting purpose, available in AP, Too much velocity for non-LEO/MIL to be trusted with, Evil, do it for the children. etc, etc.

    Maybe it's just knowing how much it would piss off the Admiral of Chappaquiddick, that makes me want one.

    6.8 SPC since I already have 1000 cases sitting in the garage or maybe a dedicated .22LR for cheap tactical practice.

    6.5 Grendel really interests me...but the cost of an upper and local availability of ammo...sucks.

    Hi 7.62X39,
    I have to say the same myself. I have had the 5/7 pistol and really liked it but could not bring myself to shell out 1500.00 for a PS90. A few days ago I ordered a 5/7 upper from Cope's, I should have it soon. I will be shure to post a range report.

    Hi DMGunn,
    6.5 Gredel uppers and mags are now being sold by CFS for $529.99 in 4 configurations. They are on back order so if you want one I would get my name on their list. I did for the 20 in A3 version.

    Thanks for the tip! I have used them recently for misc. AK parts, but never looked at AR stuff (trying to stay focused....)

    To me, that 5.7 upper would be nice because of the 50 rnd mags and since it ejects out the AR mag well you could have a nut sack added to catch the brass.
