Re: FiveSevenAmmo out of business?

Why don't you post his info here - there's always a bunch of us looking and buying if the price is right - and prices have been dropping recently!

Re: Weather and reloads?

Are you saying it was "cold" where you made the reloads? Like in a cold garage or basement? And or were all of the components cold when you did the reloads? And warm when you fired the 5 shots?

Re: Different Accuracy, etc., Using SS197SR & SS198LF Rounds

Instructions on how to post pics are linked in my sig line. I would guess the MkII has break in issues similar to the USG but even so, it's good to know the 198s served you well. Thanks for the picture loading advice, I'll have a look at your link. I'm a haf-assed photographer and should have been ...

Different Accuracy, etc., Using SS197SR & SS198LF Rounds

While sighting in my new FN 5.7 Mk II today at the range, I fired 60 rounds of 197 and 60 rounds of 198, and was surprised at both the reliability and accuracy of each. All rounds fired were FN factory rounds - the target was set at 35 ft, and I made no sight adjustments while putting these first ro...

Re: Shoulder Holster for Fiveseven?

Well, I ordered one of those, and one of these http://www.kangaroocarry.com/products/air-marshal3" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. Not a lot of money involved in either, so hopefully I will be happy with one or the other.

Re: Shoulder Holster for Fiveseven?

Wow, that's it - or at least similar. Thanks for your comments and insight. I also have an S&W Shield
that may fit - does the material have some elasticity, and does it fasten/come together with Velcro?

Re: bought 5.7 ammo RECENTLY?

Scam? I've never used Armslist so I wouldn't really know. I don't mean to hi-jack this ammo thread, but one thing that I learned recently is that you have to be really careful when buying on Armslist. I was dealing with 3 different 5.7 Mk II sellers on Armslist over the past 4 weeks, and ALL 3 were...

Re: Shoulder Holster for Fiveseven?

Thanks. In searching thru the forum, I saw that one, and while it is similar, that's not it. The one I'm looking for is very similar, and I'm pretty sure I saw it on this Forum. As I reall, it was a belly band kind of holster and cream tone color - kind of like skin color. And Ohio sticks in my mind...

Re: "combat" situation 3 rounds available

I practice with both 197 & 198 - mostly 197, but when I carry, I carry 198. :agree:

Re: Shoulder Holster for Fiveseven?

Somewhere on here I saw an unusual holster that for lack of a better description, looked like a very wide Ace Bandage and fit under a shirt. It would wrap around your torso, below your pectoral chest muscles, and along the top of your stomach. There was a pistol pocket under your armpit. Anyone reme...

Re: FiveSevenAmmo out of business?

Not here, when it is available the price has been pretty steady with exception of one store. There is a LGS that is still charging a ridiculous price & the price has been increasing. That may change though, a Sportman's Warehouse has just opened in town & they stock 5.7 ammo. LGS is going to have t...

Re: SB193 & L191 possibly fs

Curious if the combustible chemicals packed in the rear of the L191's cause any damage to the internals of the 5.7's barrel? :?:

How "custom" is the Kydex custom holster? What did they, or you do to it to make it fit your MK II?
