FiveseveN goes KB and injures! Rethinking my purchase...

In anticipation of my new FsN purchase, I have been visiting local gun shops for more education as well as a temporary fix for the excitement stemming from my newly found hobby. I wasn't prepared for what I learned after visiting the largest gun range in my city. I talked with a couple older gentlem...

Re: Gun Mounted Light w/ Laser - Review/Poll -updated 7.13.

I am very impressed with the look of the Viridian lasers. It looks like they were made for the FsN. I also noticed from the Viridian site that they are making a special glock version in olive color. Since I'm getting the dark earth FsN model, that doesn't help me much. Is there any chance someone on...

Re: Fixed sight or Adjustable?

One more thing: if I ever have the unfortunate experience of needing to use this gun in a life or death situation, I hardly think I will be using any sighting system at all. I expect any "aiming" that would be going on would be limited to just pointing at the middle of whatever threat I encounter an...

Re: Fixed sight or Adjustable?

I know in my NOOB pre-order question thread I stated that I was going to purchase an adjustable sighted gun, but now I am rethinking that decision. It appears that adjustable sights on the FsN are quite a bit taller especially when you consider the front sight. Since I am going to be using the weapo...

Re: What color FiveseveN do you like?

:lmao: More than a few of us have sent our FsN's to EA for their Accurizing and trigger job. They rework the gun. When you get yours, make sure you do the same :) I would check out our sponsors for FsNs, check out the classifieds, they have posted on there recently. Do you have a link or thread tha...

Re: My collection of pre-order NOOB questions!

Since 1 and 2 aren't questions, I'll do my best to help you out with those that are :) 3. Correct; benefit of fixed sights are their low-snag factor for when you are CCW'ing. However, I would not take this advantage over that which allows you to shift the POA for each round. 4. Purchase your FsN fr...

Re: Putting a red dot on a fixed sight

FYI EA is adding to or website the choice to have your fixed sight FsN converted over to take our MSM. The package includes the mount and if you send in your red dot sight with your slide I will install it for no additional charge. Are there any advantages/disadvantages of fixed/adjustable sights i...

jhoser2000, I purchased my 5.7 a couple years ago with adjustable sights and yes the ss197 does shoot low and to the left compared with other ammo.If your looking for a red dot sight you should call Robert at TrueHunterSupply.com he is very helpful and his prices are reasonable just talk to him you...

My collection of pre-order NOOB questions!

I checked the wiki and did some searching and I think I know what kind of FsN I want. Just to make sure I will post some questions in easy to answer format for all to chip in to correct me if I have either outdated info or am just plain wrong. The purpose of my desire in owning a FsN is for home def...

Re: What color FiveseveN do you like?

I went down to the local Gander Mountain... The gander mountains that I have been in jack up their prices big time. Its ok to look there, but shop around before buying. Their standard price for 197s used to be over $40/box. You can get it for half that anywhere else - less than half that from our f...

Re: What color FiveseveN do you like?

There is a "blue" gun. It's the one I use. It's basically the sickest FsN ever. :) FsN comes in black w/ grey controls, black with black controls, OD/black, FDE/black. Asking someone which color they like is like trying to pick a lottery ticket from everyone's favourite numbers. It doesn't quite ma...

Re: What color FiveseveN do you like?

Thanks for all the responses friends! :) I went down to the local Gander Mountain and had the opportunity to handle an FsN, but it was only stocked in black. I think I am partial to a gun with some color though especially considering it's my first pistol. Those of you that have personally handled th...

Hi, I'm brand new to the forum and am a total gun newbie. I bought my father a Glock for his birthday but have never purchased a gun for myself. For some reason I have been fascinated by the FiveSeveN and am looking to purchase one. I have been intrigued by the earth-colored gun but don't want to lo...
