are these ballistics comparable to FN's 5.7 round? off or on roster?

interesting, and as such you can pretty much guarantee that it will not be on the roster

Looks pretty cool, I wonder if it's like the .224boz that never materialized? I have a 9x25 Dillon load that sends a .355 90gr XTP @ 2050fps, and it's a ton of fun to shoot.

Not on the roster nor will it ever be. SSE is the way to go for one of these. It is based on the 1911 platform which is the easiest to SSE.

Seems pretty cool! Not sure if I'd go out and get one though.

Good luck finding ammo.


EDIT:
Found some $45 for 100 rounds.

I think what they are getting at is that it is a 9mm that can swap out to 22LR.

They conveniently left out any more info on the Round itself which leads me to believe its just 22lr.

.22TCM is a centerfire cartridge.

You need to poke around their website a little, it's a 9MM Parabellum necked down to .22. You can see the extreme shoulder slope in the Youtube video in the OP if you pay close attention to the ejecting brass in the first 10 seconds or so.

price of gun is decent, price of ammo is quite expensive, considering i can get 38super and 45acp for less :/

I still wish they would make this in a single stack 1911. I would probably get one of those.
