Default Fn 5.7

I am looking at buying one soon but don't know if it's worth the money. Any feedback about this pistol would really help. Thank you

You could get a vintage S&W or Colt for that kind of dough. Maybe even some class three toys. Too much for a small caliber polymer gun.

I have two PS90 carbines - and I previously owned a Five Seven back in 2008. It is a nice weapon. I have small hands, so the front to back length of the grip was just too much for me. But, nice gun.

Sweet gun, I'd get my hands on one first though, the grips are a bit sharp and kinda uncomfortable imo.

If your tastes and wallet allow room for a FiveseveN, most owners seem really happy with them. Very accurate (even at extended ranges), fun to shoot, low recoil...would probably be a fun varmint pistol as well.

Not a great fit for everyone, but there sure are a lot of satisfied owners out there.

Well I bought one and it's awesome. Yes it cost a bit to shoot but other than my 1911 it's the best shooting pistol I've held to this day

Pretty cool pistols to me but very much limited in uses... There doesn't seem to be much if any defensive ammo available for them and the cost per round is a lot higher than I like... Cool though...

I am thinking really seriously about picking one up too....
I saw and handled 2 or 3 at a local gun show this last weekend. Expensive yes - but uber light and really looked and felt like quality made.
Ammo is expensive but so is .45 and I buy that all the time.
Not sure about the comment about no defensive ammo - I will agree that there is not much variation in ammo loads out there - basically two versions available, a 27 grain hollow point round and a Hornady V-max 40 grain polymer tipped hard nose round.
I watached a youtube video from Hickok45 and he completely demolished a concrete cinder block in like 4-5 shots with the polymer tipped bullet. That looked plenty good enough for a defensive round to me....
Anyway, it is a large gun though - so not sure how concealable it would be. But look slike alot of fun and very accurate.

Hmmmm....I have another watch that I could sell to fund this.....hmmm

Go for it ! If you need affirmation or just a decent rationalization to buy a new gun, your in the right place. I researched the gun and liked everything except the price and no access to mil spec ammo. (yet)

The 5.7 went up against HKs new rd for MP 7 in NATO test and won but HK contested and it became a political football n gridlock.

Plenty Of U Tube videos w impressive results.
