Been a while since I posted on the beloved FN 5.7 (“Five Seven”) @fn_america
It shoots a caliber known as 5.7x28 mm (hence the name) which has the same diameter as a .223 Rem/5.56 NATO – yes, a standard AR-15/M16 round - only with a lighter bullet and smaller case/powder charge. Its ammo was created when NATO looked to replace the 9mm. I took a photo of it next to a standard 9 mm round.
20%lighter per round than a 9x19mm with 30% less recoil. Their high velocity also gives it an exceptionally flat trajectory. .
This means it shoots SOFTLY yet is incredibly accurate. Also incredibly, it's on our California-compliant list of handguns. Its stock mag is 20 rounds but fully loaded, it’s 1.6 lbs - still lighter than my G19 with 10 rounds.
-Fits perfectly in a @czusafirearms P09 holster.
-Ambi manual safeties above the trigger guard
-Same grip angle as a 1911
I love this gun.💕
