Come to think of it actually, I think some 5-7s have a threaded barrel and all of them can accept a 20 round mag.

I wouldn't get one as my carry, but I think it's a cool cartridge and a pretty badass pistol, despite what others might think (not to attack you reedo). The thing is absurdly light and carries so much ammunition...not to mention the cartridge is a mini 5.56 essentially and has almost no recoil, kinda like a .22 LR. Win for me

Don't get me wrong, the 5.7mm cartridge is actually rather impressive. I would just suggest that if anyone wants to buy a Five-seveN pistol, they go out and test shoot one first. The feel of it is really rather disappointing, given all the hype that surrounds that pistol. Much like the Winchester Black Talon hollowpoints, the Five-seveN pistol is more hype than substance thanks to games like 007: Goldeneye.

Any Glock can take a $159 threaded barrel and all the 9mm take a 33 round mag.

Not totally sure, but I think SBRs are illegal. I think threaded barrels are too, but unless you have mags made prior to '94, the 30 rounders definitely are.

That's fair. It does get alot of hype.
