Palmetto State Armory 5.7 Rock Pistol [SHOT Show 2023]


New from Palmetto State Armory comes the 5.7 Rock! Chambered in 5.7x28mm with a 23+1 capacity, this is a lot of gun with not much recoil.

Releasing in multiple options, including threaded barrels, optics ready, and just a stripped pistol frame – the Rock has many faces.

Handling the Rock at SHOT Show 2023 was pretty interesting. The gun is about the size of a Glock 19, but holds a lot more shots since it’s in 5.7x28mm. The slide is much easier to rack, and the optic sits nicely in your field of view. Bottom line, it feels great. 

Something interesting about this setup is th 23-round magazine. Looking at the Ruger 5.7, it only has a 20-round magazine.

Due to differences in the design, PSA says that the 23-round PSA mag will fit in a Ruger 5.7, but it is not guaranteed to work.

The 20-round Ruger magazine will not function in a PSA Rock.

MSRP is $550
