2015 SHOT show

I am going to stop by the SHOT show next week. Turning green already just thinking about all the stuff I will see that I can't have or can't afford. Anything specific I should look for? I know everyone will have a tacticool tweak to their AR platform, including FN. Anything else new expected?

Re: Rubber Grip Sleeve For FsN?

Blue has also sanded, dremeled and generally fitted the grip of his gun to his hand. My IOM has an almost smooth, dimpled grip that I have come to love. If I were to shoot my USG much, I would have to sand down the grip. I bought a Rock Island 10mm 1911 with VZ grips. Unbearable at first, but a litt...

Re: Cleaner/Lubricant for Five Seven??

One of the things I love about my Five Seven is the low maintenance. I pull mine apart and hit the lower with a blast of compressed air, and you could never tell it is not brand new after 5,000 rounds. I pull the barrel out and with a q-tip and carb cleaner, make sure there is no lacquer in the cham...

Five Seven USG for sale

I have an extra FsN that currently would be better off as a mortgage payment than a safe queen. It is a USG in the older flat box. Three 20 round mags and the cleaning kit, test fire casing, paperwork. Less than 500 rounds. I bought it as a back up to my IOM, but just haven't found much reason to ha...

Re: 5.7 Ammo For Self Defense

EA or similar hand loads are a great answer, but the real answer is that best ammo and caliber are the one you have on you when you need it.

Re: Factory FN 5.7 powder

He offered me all of the virgin primed brass for $.25 a piece. I passed, as I have lots of brass and I can prime it for a lot less than that. I will see him this weekend and ask about the lot number. He seems like a pretty upstanding guy, but I don't know what his motivation would be not to tell me ...

Factory FN 5.7 powder

I am new to reloading, so I have got a system together that works pretty well for me. I gather all the components, then take them over to a very experienced reloader buddy and use his Dillon 550. Actually, I usually just end up watching him use the 550. He is beyond a perfectionist. So far, it has b...

Re: I guess SS195lf is still in production!!!

I buy some ammo from a place called ammosupplywarehouse.com. They are mostly an online seller, but they are out of a small town not far from Las Vegas, so I go pick it up. They move an incredible volume. They almost always have 5.7 ammo at a fair, but not cheap price. Recently they have SS195 in sto...

Re: Price on PS90s

You really need to determine what you want out of it first. I have seen the ring sight from a G2 alone go for $400, even though you could buy something similar for less. I have seen the G2 hammer pack go for $600-$800. Crazy. If you value those aspects, it doesn't seem wrong to pay over $1,500 for a...

Re: FN 5.7 handgun shortage

Like any market, supply and demand factors work on price. If you are patient and know what you want, you can find them at "market" prices. If you are desperate and have to have one right now, there is a patient seller out there waiting to charge you whatever you will pay. I have purchased 3 FsN's. O...

Re: 10mm bug. Twice bitten

It ran, but not perfect. It's like having Jay accurize a FiveSeven. I took off the magwell and sanded a tiny bit of the cheese grater finish off the grips. The 10mm recoil was tearing up my hand. I changed out the recoil and main spring to #20/#23 based on the advice of the gunsmiths at Armscor. The...

10mm bug. Twice bitten

I have the bug. Handguns call me with a certain Siren Song, and I am not sure I even want to resist. I fell prey to the 10mm a few years ago. I was in remission, but it came back. I picked up this Rock Island. I've actually had to do a lot to it to get it to run just right, but that is like most of ...
