Tisas PX-5.7 Pistol: Hard-Hitting 5.7mm Performance

Tisas, a firearm manufacturer known for its high-quality pistols, entered the 5.7mm realm with the showing of the PX-5.7 pistol this past week at IWA in Germany. The move into the 5.7mm pistol market is no shock when taking into consideration the growing popularity of the platform.

The Tisas PX-5.7 pistol, like other 5.7mm pistols, will use a lever delay device for function inside the polymer chassis. The polymer frame allows for better control of recoil, which 5.7 pistols don’t have a lot of, and cuts down the weight significantly. According to reports, the Tisas PX-5.7 pistol will be the lightest 5.7mm pistol ever made.

The small size of the pistol, just over 1.3” thick, and the above-average trigger, should make this pistol a quick competitor. The trigger has a pull weight between 4.5 and 5 pounds and is said to be surprisingly good. The production model of the PX-5.7 will come from the factory with optic cuts on the slide, a feature that no other 5.7mm pistol on the market currently possesses.

The slide itself is hot-forged and has a set of adjustable sights on top. The slide is said to have a QPQ coating, which is a German patented coating with liquid nitrocarburizing case hardening that gives the slide a high corrosion resistance for longer life. The barrel is said to be cold hammer forged. The pistol also features a loaded chamber indicator and a striker status.

Rounding out the features for the PX-5.7 from Tisas is it comes from the factory with a 20-round magazine. An extension is available, giving the magazine an extra three rounds. Initial impressions are that it is well thought out in design and has a lot of functional features.

The Tisas PX-5.7 pistol is set to be out mid-summer. The word on pricing is that it will be competitive with other models and well under $1,000. Those eager to get their hands on one shouldn’t have to wait too awful long.

Patti Miller is one of the most awesome females in the tactical/firearm (or any) industry. Imagine a tall, hawt, dangerous Laura Ingalls Wilder type with cool hair and a suppressed blaster and you'll be getting the idea. What's interesting is that in addition to being a willing brawler and intrepid adventuress, she's also an Ent/Ogier level gardener and a truly badass baker.
