CMMG has announced the release of a new line of AR pistols and short-barreled rifles (SBR’s) chambered in FN 5.7x28mm.  The Mk57 line-up takes this blazing fast, low-recoiling round to new heights. Featuring CMMG’s Radial Delayed Blowback operating system, the Mk57 is exceptionally fun to shoot, capable of shooting targets out to 200 yards and ready-made for home defense.

Available in 5-inch barreled BANSHEE and 8-inch barreled PSB configurations, each model in the new Mk57 GUARD line is fed from FN 5.7 pistol magazines. CMMG will also offer a separate lightweight buffer for use with subsonic ammunition. To overcome the reduced backpressure with subsonic loads, the lightweight buffer can help ensure that the bolt locks back after firing the last round.

At the heart of the Mk57 is CMMG’s Radial Delayed Blowback operating system designed to minimize felt recoil.  It features rotating bolt that requires the recoil impulse of a round being fired in order to unlock. As each round is fired, a portion of the rearward force is exhausted in unlocking this bolt prior to driving the carrier rearward and cycling the action.  With less rearward force to compensate for, CMMG is able to use a lighter carrier and buffer than a standard blowback design would allow, thus reducing the overall reciprocating mass.

The FN 5.7×28 was designed and introduced by FN Herstal with the intention of replacing the 9mm for military and law enforcement usage. While the caliber has been adopted by several agencies throughout the world, its real success came with its entry into the civilian market in the early 2000’s.

Mk57 BANSHEE

The BANSHEE in 5.7×28 has a 5-inch barrel and comes as either an SBR or an AR pistol.  The SBR version is sold with Magpul Moe vertical foregrip and features CMMG’s new RipStock.  The Ripstock allows users to quickly deploy the stock to an extended position without having to actuate a release lever.  It also has five set-screw positions that allow users to customize the length of extension to the best fit.  The AR pistol versions come with a Gear Head Works Tailhook Mod2 brace that allows users to easily extend/collapse the brace with the press of a button.

Distinguishing features of the BANSHEE also include the addition of CMMG’s new ambidextrous charging handle and RML4 M-LOK hand guard. A CMMG Premier Cerakote finish (11 different colors to choose from) is included standard with each BANSHEE. It ships with one 20-round ProMag magazine and is compatible with FN Five-SeveN pistol magazines.
