TADA, behold, serrations! Also note the bevel at the front, akin to later generation Glocks.

thanks to my USPSA friend who has a nice camera and was nice enough to take this picture for me.

yep, the above pic is the exact model i just got.....and it will fit in the serpa holster, but the push-button lock will not lock in - it's wider right in front of the trigger guard (where the picatiny rail begins) than it's predeccessor, and the slide no longer tapers down - it's the same width from the rear to the muzzle(and the holster is obviously molded for the tapered slide)...so i guess i'm going to have to find a new holster now...

Stands to reason it's thicker up front. That was a common failure point if you put to heavy of a accessory on the rail. Glad FNH beefed it up.

Here's the pics of the M2, including letter from FN regarding use of SS195LF in five-seven.

It took a little Dremel work (similar to what the dentist puts me through) on the inside of my Serpa, #18 USG Model, but I finally got the MKII to holster, lock-up, and release without any issue.

Re: FN FiveseveN Pistol Variants UPDATED

My pistol looks nearly exactly like this one.

FN Logo on Grip. Blank right side plate. Very close in serial number to this specimen.

UPDATE

The gun is as new in the original FN box. 2 Mags. Some paperwork inside. I confess that I have not shot it and neither did the previous owner. My guess is that it is nearly unfired...maybe 150 rounds max.


Wondering a value on it.

I'm getting ready to part with it due to some medical bills and hoped that the group could help make sure I don't get boondoggled.

Also, if anyone knows the best place to market this piece, I'd be appreciative.

Thanks, guys!

Tom

MC1, we recommend that you don't post your phone number out in the open like that. Bots & spammers come through looking for stuff like that & you may end up on someone's calling list.
It would be best to just post that you are interested & invite them to PM you, then you can exchange phone numbers in private.

Good luck in your search.

I'm pleased with my MKII. A new holster is on the way from Stealthgear USA.

I am having some difficulty being able to identify my 5.7 . I was hoping this board may have an idea of what I have . The Sn is in the correct place but has been stamped with an ampersand directly after it. I know this is from the factory and I am the first to register it. Hope you guys have a clue thanks for all the help

Not an ampersand, it's Proof mark. There are a few on the pistol just like it. Just put up a pic of the pistol.

He posted a link to a pic. Whatever google's deal is, it doesn't play well with our forum. I tried to fix it but... Google is just too frakkin' "special" to play well with others.
