FN Herstal P90 / PS90

Just like the Five-seveN® handgun, the P90® submachine gun was developed around the 5.7x28mm ammunition to meet the Armies requirement in terms of efficiency.

Two versions are available:
P90® Standard

P90® Tactical
Either version can be fitted with an integrated visible or infrared laser.

Stopping Power for Close Combat

The P90® submachine gun and the SS190 ball ammunition team up to defeat the enemy in all close combat situations.

High Accuracy
The high velocity of the 5.7x28mm ammunition guarantees a virtually flat trajectory up to 200m for outstanding accuracy.

Fully Reliable
The simple design of the mechanism, the unique feed mechanism and the materials used to manufacture the P90® make it highly reliable, whatever the conditions.

Rapid Deployment
The P90® is carried ready to fire. There is no need to extend any folding buttstock. Despite its shortness, the P90® is designed to be fired from the shoulder, giving maximum stability.

Quick Aiming
The P90® Standard is fitted with an integrated optical sight without magnification. The user can therefore shoot with both eyes open. Performance is fully retained in low light conditions thanks to a tritium capsule.

Easy to Carry
The compactness of the P90® allows easy movement in confined areas. The magazine is fully integrated in the upper part of the P90® for optimized ergonomics.

Fully Ambidextrous
The cocking handle and magazine catch can be operated from both sides of the P90®. The fire selector is under the trigger and can be operated in either hand. Empty cartridge cases are ejected downwards. The P90® can therefore be handled by right- and left-handed operators without any modification.

High Magazine Capacity
Since the 5.7x28mm rounds are light and small, the magazine fitted above the barrel can accept up to 50 cartridges.
