Re: 5.4 versus 6 versus 7 inch barrels

let me pay for my trijicon rmr sight and streamlight tactical light and ammo from PSA and the mounting plate for said sight.....and I will try to be the 7" barrel donor at that time. Need the cash first.... :D :thumb:

Re: 5.4 versus 6 versus 7 inch barrels

That way you would have the cool factor as well as the longer barrel for speed increase! :D :clap:

Re: 5.4 versus 6 versus 7 inch barrels

What would be cool if you could make one that would thread onto a 7" barrel about a third of the way down so that it could still be a muzzle break but would also close the gap between the barrel and the slide. So one could use the 7inch barrel and have it look like just a longer flash compensator on...

Re: Good holster for fn57 with Burris fast fire 3 mounted?

FN57sale.com has holsters that are OWB and can accommodate a rmr sight and tactical light on the front as well if you want. They can customize the holster I believe too. I was thinking of getting one for range use and for when I go hunting with it.

Re: 5.4 versus 6 versus 7 inch barrels

Re: 5.4 versus 6 versus 7 inch barrels

Maybe. The one I saw was all black on a grey/black camo gun. It was circular and seemed to have ports on the side and an irregular shaped front end. Not the extension piece that matches the gun that just makes it look like a longer regular gun. As far as ballistics go, are you saying that if I fired...

5.4 versus 6 versus 7 inch barrels

I am going to ask this here in case anyone else wanted to know. (Instead of PM to Jay) and others. Is there much bullet performance difference between the different barrels? Faster muzzle velocity/more bullet energy and therefore flatter trajectory farther? Is the difference that great between each ...

Re: If you had to choose...ss197 versus ss198 for hogs

Thanks guys. I have seen ss198 on gunbroker for $599/1000 at times. I guess I am thinking more like $0.35- $0.75 per round versus using other ammo that may have better stats but is more like $1.75-2.00 per round. I don't mind using either round, but was wondering on hogs which would be better. Just ...

If you had to choose...ss197 versus ss198 for hogs

I have been thinking about sighting in with 1 load for range work as well as hogs. Commercially, the 197 and 198 cost in the ballpark of each other. In the ammo section, the ss197 is slower and fragments and is heavier. The ss198 is faster and tumbles but is lighter. Shooting at hogs less than 50 ya...

Re: New to FN. Few newbie questions

Thanks for the info. what will be different with the x-terminator round? If I am sighted to 50 yards, shouldn't be too much drop between range 197's and x-terminator or t6b or s4m?

New to FN. Few newbie questions

Hi everyone, Just picked up a FN 5.7 and had a few questions. Is there a link to advice on holding the gun for best accuracy? Also, I am looking to put a trijicon 3.25 RMR on it. Does trijicon make an adapter piece? Best place to buy said piece and sight? Also, looking at getting a threaded barrel. ...
