I've been wanting an M57 but the pistol not being a C&R has slowed me down. A local shop has one for $279, which isn't bad considering SOG is selling them for $229+ shippng.
Have you shot it yet? I love my TTC Romanian, and would like to find a Soviet model. I've been on the fence on the M57. Part of me thinks that they will sell out and go up in price by $100. Another thought is that BATF will make them C&R and they will linger on the marker for a while cheaply like the Romanians. The Polish TT33's seem to have sold out and are more expensive.
