Those are pretty neat. I have not gotten to fire the PS but I have shot 5.7 out of a AR platform , the bottom ejection seems odd on the AR but it works , but nothing brings a smile to my face like this one . Once I pick it up I have a hard time putting it down . I would be happy just shooting it all day when I go to the range

The new CZ Scorpion Evo is on my checklist.

I wouldn't buy the PS90 based on the ammo alone. Too hard to find around here, and if you do, too expensive.

How does an AR lower bottom eject? IMHO, I would vote for most semi auto guns ejecting downward. It'd save you from having to look for the brass.

Agreed. When I hear "fun plinker" I think "cheap plentiful ammo".


You should watch a video on that bottom ejecting out the usual magwell; it looks cool. I have not shot an AR57. http://youtu.be/YPFqBNtAUxc

Ahh, I see, mag on top. Very nice. Other than the ammo availability and cost problem, it looks pretty good. Also sounds quiet, and low recoil.

For years, I considered my M-1 .30 carbine was the greatest "fun gun" there was! Centerfire cartridge, no recoil, could fire it all day and not wear out. It's just in the last few years that .30 carbine ammo became harder to find.

It has very little recoil, but the bullet has almost as much energy as a .357 Mag's. It holds 35 rounds

That AR57 looks pretty neat. If it weren't for the caliber, I wouldn't mind having one.

Did you buy it? If so, congrats. I've always liked the concept of this gun.
