Magna-Tow AR57 5.7x28mm Upper Kit

A revolutionary new design that blends the ergonomics of the AR-15 lower with a lightweight, fast-handling upper receiver system chambered in the exciting new 5.7x28mm caliber. This ultrareliable unit is fed by a horizontal, top-mounted 50-round magazine (not included) atop the 16" E.R. Shaw barrel, and there's no gas system to clog or foul. The upper receiver and rails are precisely milled from a monolithic block of aircraft grade 7075 T6 aluminum. Kit includes a barrel, semiautomatic bolt, carbine buffer and manual. No FFL required.

Great personal defence

This is an ultimate weapon for any type of situation. Light weight, multiple rounds, the rails will allow any kind of furniture. Awesome weapon for any reason. Highly recommend.

ar57 upper receiver

Date:October 27, 2009
This is a great product! Much better than a rimfire conversion, with more range, accuracy, and power. I can easily keep groups under 2" at 100 yards with a 4x ACOG.
It's a hoot to shoot, no recoil, blow back action stays cleaner than an AR, and all empties are ejected down the mag well for easy pick-up. Quality is excellent. A high tech upper for your AR. A must have for an AR lover.

Jams frequently.

Date:April 5, 2011
Seemed like a great idea. Purchased it and mated it to a DPMS lower. Started double feeding and firiong 2-3 rounds at a time (not good as second and third rounds the necks were straightened). Contacted mfg and was told the problem was the trigger assembly as it needs a single stage trigger. Now I have a useless upper till I aquire an older single stage trigger. I would suggest that if you want to fire this round, buy a complete unit.
