The FN 5.7 X 28 with silencer? Have you done it?

Hi all, I have an Axiiom silencer on order for about 2 months. I went the corporation route, which is supposed to be faster. Anyway, I purchased a Jarvis threaded barrel and installed it with no problems. The adapter is on the way. I ordered the silencer for a Ruger SR 22. I did so as it is against ...

Re: G2 Research "RIP" round mfgs to make "TRIDENT" Round

RIP also makes some wicked .45 ammunition too! I wonder what the ramifications might be in a court of law, when used for self-defense! Personally, I want whatever will put the bad guy down, quick and stop the threat. I love my .45, but I also feel that the right 5.7 ammunition makes our pistol a goo...

HOLSTER FOR 57 with Viridian X5L and ECR capability

Hi gang, I have the above green laser/light combination. What I'm seeking is a OWB (paddle) that will accept the 57 with the above rail system. Viridian has a system that turns on the light and laser (in your preset choice) automatically as you draw. I love it and I have it on other pistols too. Alt...

Re: Problem with my new Five Seven Mag realease button

What does this mean for those of us who own older Five Sevens with the plastic release button. Was the metal button a fix for that problem, or did it create the problem?

Re: Best gun for Ankle-Carry CCW??

I live in south Texas and we have the same weather problems. I carry my 57 to Sig 220s w/ shorts and a t shirt. I think allot of it has to do with you body type. If you are 6', 165 it will probably harder to conceal than if you are 5'10 220 w/ 50" chest and 36" waist. As I stated before I hate ankl...

Re: Best gun for Ankle-Carry CCW??

I live in southern Georgia, so I suffer from the same weather that you do. For many years, I carried via ankle carry and it was my only pistol. I had a huge wake-up call one day. Had those three armed men targeted me, I would be dead before I could draw my pistol - a .380. That incident may have sen...

Re: LaserMax Uni-Green Review - STAY AWAY POS!!!!

I have three Lasermax guide rod lasers and the Unimax green laser on one of my FsN's, and have been fairly happy with all of them. I have never had any kind of a problem with the function of any of them. I have had one good and one bad experience with their customer service, however. The Unimax's b...

Re: Gun Mounted Lights w/ Laser

This forum is KING of "use the search function". To the point of being ridiculous. Why dont we just catalog all possible topics into an excel spreadsheet, add information as we learn more and shut down the discussion part of the forum? Kind of defeats the purpose. Its one reason I do a lot more rea...

Re: How did you find out about the FiveseveN?

I was OCing in a store, when a military officer (I live near a base) stopped to talk to me. He told me about the Five Seven and his experiences with it on the range. He said that he fired a round at a steel plate and a perfect hole was the result. When he fired the same ammunition at a watermelon, ...

Re: Which is better for SD: Fragmenting or Tumbling?

Again as stated before any of the rounds that would fragment in the 5.7 cartridges would not be anything close to what those fragmenting rounds that people call mall ninja ammo :lmao: Owsi, whenever people post THIS vs. THAT, you have to really put it into a SPECIFIC context.

Which is better for SD: Fragmenting or Tumbling?

I tried to ask this on a previous thread, but the rounds, that I chose, were both fragmenting rounds! So, for self-defense, do you prefer Fragmenting or Tumbling rounds? Consider the rounds equal otherwise. I ask this as I had heard that the tumbling action is what makes Five Seven ammunition equal...

Yes, Lisa has been great with me too. I worry that this thread has upset her and everyone else, at EA, as she has quit replying during this post. I hope it isn't that, but I would rather it be that than a health issue. On a positive note, I'm using my new ipad. It is rather awesome and it is perfect...

Re: Smaller Guy CC and Help Deciding on This Weapon

Welcome to the forum! I have Miami Classic also. I have a small number of shoulder rigs. Galco has the Five Seven in a vertical position due to the length of the pistol. If it was in a horizontal position, it would print, very awful, either to the rear of your coat or both the front and rear. I have...
