FN Herstal Five-seveN

Combined with the 5.7x28mm ammunition, the Five-seveN® pistol is adapted to different types of close quarter defensive and training scenarios. Optimized to be used in any condition the operator may encounter.

Highly Accurate

The flat trajectory of the 5.7x28mm ammunition guarantees a high hit probability up to 200 m.

Extremely low recoil results in quick and accurate firing.
High Capacity Magazine

The Five-seveN® pistol can accept up to 20 rounds in the magazine.
Extremely Light and Ergonomic

The Five-seveN® features a polymer receiver, which makes it 20% lighter than any traditional 9mm handgun.

Well-balanced, with smooth contours and no protruding parts, the Five-seveN® pistol will instinctively be handled correctly and is extremely easy to use.
Fully Safe

The Five-seveN® pistol features an ambidextrous manual safety that blocks the trigger mechanism and avoids any accidental shoot.
Tactical Missions

The Five-seveN® pistol features a Picatinny rail for add-on accessories (e.g. visible or infrared laser, tactical light).

I have mine loaded with the SS198 rounds. Awesome gun with very cool ballistics and great penetration.
