Five-seveN FDE preproduction sample

Post by FNTim » 27 Aug 2011, 17:07

Just thought I would share the first Five-seveN made in FDE. This is a 1 of 1. FNH USA ordered this one as a pre-production marketing sample before the Five-seveN FDE was released. Note: FDE slide cover with grey controls.

Thanks for sharing. Guess we know why they went with the black slide now.

Luckily EA and their fancy slide covers will make this possible!

Which plant/office? More then a few guys at FNH buy our ammo and have it shipped to the offices where they work.

I worked at the main office in McLean in Logistics, Product Management and the Customer Service Call Center in tech support before it was moved to MO with the service center. From 2003 to 2011.

Sucks, sorry to hear about that. That is how EA went from my part time hobby job to my full time job.

He's pretty happy. It sits next to his new, unfired USG and his IOM :)

He sent me a picture the other day.

It's a nice collection.
