It was always the P90, long before the civilian version, the PS90, existed. Unlesss of course the gun you're talking about in the civilian version with the ridiculously long barrel.

Sons of Anarchy season 4 opener just ended. There were a couple references to the FsN.

Early in the show an ATF agent is listing guns the IRA has provided to the Sons he mentions an FN fiftyseven.

Later at Opie's wedding, one of the Russians describes a "cop killer" that "penetrates kevlar" and hands Clay a FsN.

Last night must have been FiveSeven night. Watched Combat Hospital and Sons of Anarchy, both had the amazing pistol in them.
Slapped my girl on the leg and told her "The Russian ain't coming back from the table, worse thing is he's fixing to get shoot with a gun

They have also refered to the FsN as "fifty sevens" multiple times in Sons of Anarchy.

Fringe finale, has a very quaint new version of the FsN.

Usually, tacky series just put a lasermax or light on the FsN, or use a clone.

The Fringe series has always had the best reincarnations of the FsN. The finale (pt 1.) has a really rad one.

Yeah, the latest variant in the Fringe series is on the 2nd to last episode of this season; the villain Jessica uses a really tricked out one that William Bell had created. It had a different sight that was toward the front of the slide.

wow... they still have Playstation pages up...

I've never bought a video game station, so I wouldn't have been able to play it.

This particular game came out a couple of months ago for the new Playstation Vita handheld system. I think the reason for the simplistic web page is to make it look better on the 5" screen.

I saw a brief glimpse of a fsn on that new motorcycle show on discovery channel. I was working out and not paying attention to the tv and then looked up when I heard a slide racking. Dude was packing a fiveseven!

The show is called The Devils Ride.

:) Last season of fringe is powered. I'm glad FOX didn't repeat the error of cancelling it, as with Firefly.

Captured off the 2nd episode of this last season. I brightened the image so you could see the detail, more clearly. Originally using FsN's, they went to a prototype FsN that fired highly-accelerated rounds (imagine that). Then from that prototype, the pictured firearm you see was developed. They really spent time (and money?) on this prop. Which makes me smile.

I'm going to claim that the gun it is modeled after is a Walther P99 AS. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Perhaps they changed it such that the narrower and shorter grip would allow easier manipulation for the actors and mainly, actresses that wield it.
