Palmetto Armory announced a couple of very compelling additions to their pistol lineup at SHOT Show. The first is the new Dagger Micro, a micro-compact version of their 9mm striker-fired pistol.

Palmetto State will offer the new 15+1 Dagger Micro in two configurations, one with standard iron sights and one with an optics cut and threaded barrel.

Note that the model shown at SHOT is a pre-production version. The final pistol will have a more aggressive grip texture.

Palmetto State will also be jumping into the 5.7x28mm pistol market, going up against models from FN and Ruger. Like the Dagger micro, the new Rock 57 will come in two models, one with standard irons and one with a slide cut and threaded barrel.

Again, the model shown at SHOT was a pre-production pistol. The final model will have more grippy grips and the name really will be Rock 57, not ‘5.7 Rock’ as it appears above.

The 23+1 Rock 57 — at least the model show at SHOT — has a remarkably good trigger. It’s exceptionally light and clean-breaking, particularly for a striker-fired trigger.

The Rock 57 also has a slightly less beefy grip than its competitors. Due to the length of the 5.7×28 cartridge, the grip on 5.7 pistols is larger than standard nines or .45s. Some of us with small hands have a tough time reaching the trigger.

PSA, however, has found a way to make the Rock 57’s grip slightly less girthy. It’s noticeably easier to grip and get to the trigger than either the FN or Ruger pistols. Again, this is a pre-production grip module, so here’s hoping that’s still the case on the final version.

The base model Rock 57 will be priced at $499. The feature-packed version with the optics cut and threaded barrel will run $599. Expect it to be available in Mark or early in the second quarter.

    • I’m making 150 D0IIars an hour w0rking from h0me. I was sh0cked when my friend told me that she was maklng D0Ilars 17384/m just from her h0me 0nLlne. Then this completely changed my Llfe. F0r Details… http://Todayz50.cf

  1. Though I’m not really a big 5.7 guy, it is good to see another option out there for buyers.

    As for the Micro Dagger…well, I’ll wait an see. Hop from TFBTV reviewed the original Dagger, and he was kinda “meh” about it.

    • If nothing else the 5.7 being more widely available (well available at all outside of some diehard fans from the 90’s) has made increasing quality of soft armor a necessity for more manufactures.

      • Looking forward to the review. I’m glad to see PSA getting into the pistol business. I’ve been very happy with the PSA AR builds that I’ve done.

        Do you guys have any specs on this micro dagger? If the height isn’t less than 4.5″, width less than 1″, and length less than 6″, it isn’t really “micro”, just “compact”. Since it is 15+1, I imagine that it is merely “compact”. That’s nice too.

        Also, the new 5.7 is supposed to be available in Mark. If that doesn’t work out, maybe it will be available in Matthew, Luke, or John. ๐Ÿ‘

  2. Interesting stuff! I’m curious about the micro dagger but I’m not crazy about being a beta tester & buying online. I like to handle any gat I get.

  3. Don’t like that the rear sight is in front of the optic. So if decide to take optic off then rear sight look stupid.

  4. A quality 5.7×28 pistol for less than $700? I’m in! Will quickly be the new home defense gun for the wifey. I thought the Ruger was just a bit too querky.

    5.7 = *LOUD*… ๐Ÿ™

  6. The new dagger looks like a coke-fueled Algernop Krieger threw the various reproductive bodily fluids of a Glock, an M&P, and a 320, into a blender…then put the resulting goop into a wishdotcom clone incubator, and is attempting to sell the result.

    At least the 57 finally provides a 5.7 pistol that you can actually put a dot on…so that’s positive…
