Re: FiveseveN IOM Prototype...

If it's an actual documented PROTOTYPE, it should be a couple of thousand dollars.

A friend of mine purchased the second .44 Automag Prototype a couple of years ago and paid $8,000.00. But keep in mind a "run of the mill" Automag is around $4,000.00.

What primer?

I'm looking to go SLIGHTLY hotter than a factory SS197 load.

I'm going to be using Hornady 40 gr Z-Max bullets
True Blue powder
But I have Winchester Small Rifle primers "in stock", but I've seen loading data recommending both pistol & rifle primers.

BTW, I'm thinking 5.2 grains of True Blue.

NEW (2015) 5.7X28 handgun

Found this in a post on the "other" Forum...

Unfortunately it's not currently imported into the U.S.

It's manufactured in the Ukraine

Re: Possibility of an "Echo" Trigger for the PS90?

The Franklin Armory Gen III Binary Trigger doesn't require a "Trip" for it to operate.

I wasn't even considering the Fostech Echo.

Re: Possibility of an "Echo" Trigger for the PS90?

In theory it shouldn't be a very long reach to achieve this. As many PS90 owners are aware, the FN PS90 trigger group is almost an exact copy of the Steyr AUG trigger pack, in fact PS90 packs have been retrofitted with AUG parts.

Re: Range report: First time out with new FsN MkII and PS90

O.K., that's it!

I going to order an Elite Ammunition chamber gauge and check EVERY round of ammo that I'm going to carry before loading it into the magazines.

Way too many reports of issues with 5.7 ammo.

Glock is also the "only pistol of it's kind"...and it's MOSTLY made of traditional steel.

The FsN is expensive because we'll PAY IT!
The frame is by far mostly polymer except for the rails molded into the polymer.

Re: Min Velocity for Reliable Expansion w 40gr VMax?

I do believe that the V Max bullet design has changed.

Several years ago Hornady stated on their L.E. web site that .223 40 gr Urban TAP shouldn't be used in a barrel with a faster twist than 1/9". They changed that later to 1/7".

Re: Blackhawk Serpa holster review

Resurrecting this thread from the dead.... Blackhawk FINALLY offered a Serpa for the FiveseveN MKII, they produced 300 units and then shut production down. By the time I found out about it the only source I could find was a reseller on eBay. I wound up paying almost $120.00 for a holster that should...

Re: Just purchased a 57 MKII. I just had some general quest

I seem to recall a posting about a FiveseveN that COULDN'T be brought on target it was so far off and FN wound up replacing the pistol.

And as you have discovered, the P.O.I. is EXTREMELY different between SS197 & SS198.

SS198 is quite a bit faster and the projectile is over 25% lighter.

Re: Why is the FiveseveN so much more expensive...

Well they will have competition very soon. A major firearms manufacture that everyone on this forum has heard of is finalizing their 5.7 mil spec pistol. It will use FsN magazines and be a polymer/metal hybrid. There will be 2 versions, 1 striker and the other hammer. At a minimum this will force F...

They are charging what the market will bear. I foresee the price continuing to slowly raise until sales slow.

A product I use in my AR-15 magazines is Remington Dri-Lube.

It sprays on wet then dries and leaves a residue of dry Teflon.

Plastic Storage Boxes

Could you please divulge the supplier of the blue plastic boxes you formally used for shipping your ammunition?

I would like to purchase some for storage of my 5.7 ammo.

Thanks.

Re: STP and Other NON Firearm Greases

I just ran across this topic, I've been running Mobil 1 grease in my 5.7.

The reason is I've used it on my Glocks for years. The slide feels like it's running on ball bearings but now I'm worried.

How many instances of this have you ran across? And was it STP?
