Custom Smith MFG Chassis For Ruger-57 -The Firearm Blog


Michael Bonamico of Custom Smith MFG has posted up some teaser pics of his latest creation. If you recall, Custom Smith MFG makes 3D printed accessories for various firearms. I reviewed some of his MP5  accessories. Most of his accessories are brace/stock adapters as well as a variety of VFGs and AFGs for said firearms. Now Michael is making his first Custom Smith MFG chassis for the Ruger-57.

Even though I own a Ruger-57, it never dawned on me that the serialized part is the trigger module somewhat like a P320. Michael Bonamico figured this out and has apparently designed a new lower for the Ruger-57. His Custom Smith MFG Chassis replaces the polymer frame of the Ruger-57.

You can see in the photo above that there is a charging handle to rack the slide.

The top cover comes off giving you access to the slide. You can see the charging handle here. I think it bolts where the optic plate would be.

Since the Ruger-57 is so long, the barrel goes all the way to the end of the Custom Smith MFG chassis.

I briefly reached out to Michael Bonamico about his Custom Smith MFG chassis. At the moment he does not have a price set. But he hopes to have it soon. I would like to see the top cover styled more like an H&K MP7. It is not practical but it is something I would like to see as I am sure many others want an MP7 styled firearm that shoots 5.7x28mm.

Here is a video he posted on Instagram.

I am excited to see a chassis system for the Ruger-57 regardless of ammo scarcity. His MP-57 should be a hit. He says he is two months away from releasing it for sale. Right now he is trying to solve some minor issues like the mag won’t drop free yet. However, I would like to point out that guns like the Kel-Tec CP33 and PMR-30/CMR-30 are very popular and yet those mags do not drop free either.
