I presume that the Ruger-57 could easily be chambered in 7.62x25 Tokarev without the need for a redesign considering that 7.62x25 Tokarev is a lower pressure cartridge. Ruger would just have to scale it up a bit.
I'm not interested in the Ruger-57, but I would be all over a Ruger-762.
Apologies to the OP for contributing in this thread hijack, but I don't what Ruger was thinking when they decided to go ahead with the 57. First is the 57 could compete with FN's overpriced and questionably performing pistol, that was a given, but who was asking for a cheaper 5.7 traditional pistol? Who exactly is going to turn in their 9mm for a 5.7?

So, right there it shows that the entire purpose was to make a pistol in a caliber that people know of, but don't own due to the entry price. Could Ruger do the same for 7.62x25? When Ruger would be competing against $300 Tok clones, I don't think so, even tho a modern polymer frame pistol in 7.62 Tok would be of interest to a few people, it wouldn't interest enough people.

What would interest people a lot more is if Ruger decided to offer a single stack version and rename the pistol the Ruger-357 and put .357 Magnum in it.
