View Full Version : A Day Out With My Mistress - The FN 5.7

Salam All,
I have noticed that on this forum there have been quite a few threads on the FiveseveN pistol. Sooooo, today I got a much anticipated call from a brother of mine to come over to the Isb Gun Club and to bring the FN 5.7 as well.
Two variants were fired at approx. 25meters or 27yards at paper targets. I shot only five rounds at paper and had fun putting dents in the quarter inch steel plates. There is a video of all this I am trying to get edited which I will also post later on this thread... maybe by Saturday along with many more pics.
Getting back to the guns, there was a adjustable sight model and a fixed night sight model to fire at the range. Each fired about fifty rounds through the respective weapons - aside from the sights the only other variation was that on the fixed sight model a hogue finger groove sleeve was added for support and comfort. My personal preference has always been aggressive checkering/design for grip on the grip which the FN has. Both guns have the following: ambi safety placed in front/top of trigger guard, ambi mag housing allowing you to switch mag rel sides, a loaded indicator, the top of the slide is also housed in plastic (going a little overboard if you ask me) to give it a more appealing look.
I picked up my FN and we danced. Bang! Wow! I couldn't believe it, exactly as stated by many owners, literally no felt recoil or atleast 30% less than 9mm. AMAZING, the video will show my ear to ear grin as I was firing this doll. The grip is very ergonomic and slim considering the magazine capacity is 20 rounds. The sight picture was clean and clear. The only thing I felt needed work was the trigger. Although, very stiff, it was still very crisp and very smooth, there was no trigger lag. Another amazing thing we discovered about both pistols - the ejected rounds all landed three feet to the front/right of the shooter AND all the spent casings were no more than a foot apart on the ground in one location. Most guns' casings end up everywhere.
Here are the pics:

@Moeen When I first saw this thread, an image of a guy wearing nothing but 5.7 ammo popped into my head and I thought "oh %^#" ;)

Excellent gun MashAllah, waiting for the video and since this gun is being reviewed for the first time, if you could post more in depth pictures that would be great. Btw what is the trigger pull weight like ? Would you rank it more of a carry gun or a shooting gun ?

@All Since this is not really a market weapon and very hard to obtain let me make Moeen's life easier by saying the price ranges somewhere between 300k to 500k.

Syed
02-11-2011, 01:27 PM
last year some of them sold over 500k but no ammo available those days

Salam All,
THANK YOU ALL for your comments.
I paid a little more than what our Dear Abbas bhai has mentioned due to that ammo. Yes, most in Karachi were and still are being sold for 750k without ammo. The ammo is very scarce I was able to collect some here and there AND still am always looking for more.... Ammo price of this thing varies so no SET rate as I have picked up rounds for as low as 50/rs as well as up to 2000/rs a ridiculous round!

This gun in my opinion, had there not been an issue with ammo, makes for a great hip-carry-gun. I won't wear it on the ankle. Then again mine is not for carry; I wanna slowly make it a range gun. Its lighter than a G19 loaded atleast it definately felt like that. I don't have a trigger pull measuring gauge but I felt it to be around 5 or 6 lbs. I opened it up to see if this problem could be remedied but the trigger and other springs were coil (non compression) springs meaning cutting a coil or two will only render this pistol workless. Still I too don't give up that easy... other springs are on the way along with a threaded barrel ;-). I am thinking a compensator, smooth trigger, and some other stuff...

@Abbas - bhai, wait, I meant what I said, big n sexy wearing only ammo, coming soon.

Interesting ammo. Is it made by POF?

@American Lockpicker - No this is not POF ammo, its FN Ammo.

@Moeen.........Nicee bro and congrats.

Well, the gun for sure is a beauty to have, yet in my opinion, this ammo, being a Nato specimen and probably for a selected few of armory, will never manage sadly to attain wide-spread market share over here, so get ready for a Rs. 4K/Per. round price tag even, yet I agree it's primarily "BNS" stuff, hence the dot on the "i" of your already sprawling arsenal. Happy shooting bro.

Salam All,
Thanks ALL. The Ammo is expensive, so is heroin and cocaine, but their affects are obviously pleasurable to want more as is this case. "Ye Dil Mange More..." I was supposed to come to Lahore this week, instead got another surprise(s) SENT TO ME. Thanks to Malik Fayaz bhai owner of Hira Arms, Nila Gumbad, Lahore. Here are photos, now need to do SERIOUS practice as I also have Doctor Sights arriving for my Glock 34 along with Carver Comp..

Moeen Bro
Heartiest Congratulations on getting the Czechmate. It is a great pistol pl post your review and comments about the pistol.
I have never seen even a custom tuned hand gun to have such precise fit of the frame to slide and barrel to slide and the barrel bushing is kind of self adjusting. After firing couple of hundred rounds it appears un fired.
I am sure you will not forget to use lithium grease on the rails, barrel bushing and barrel lugs.

I still have to post the movie of the FN however the guy doing the editing for me... Asif Arbab's (Montage Productions) mother is in the hospital.

Moeen bro, Salams. Yes, I can see you've had a great Eid this year, no doubts. Beautiful item there, congrats, both on the Eid and the new "concubine" above. May I ask, did you change it with the previous one or added another "fuel licker" to your already great collection? I humbly wouldn't doubt it, if you even managed another frame for it, only you can do such magic, lol!

Happy shooting bro,

@AK47 - no I exchanged it with another one. This one is in a different box as well and comes with a cleaning kit. Most of the FN boxes here are ridiculous size - this one came in a very very sleek and small black box.

Thanx Moeen bro, now kindly also do post some range shots from shorter distance than 25 mtrs. What is your prs explanation of the shots landing above the bull, I mean, the excellent shot that your good self is, how do you explain the higher placed shots, since I doubt the recoil is any more than a cal. 30, is it? Or is it a question of personal adjustment to the beauty only?


Thanx.

@AK47 - bro, awaiting more... MUCH more ammo then I will do a comprehensive test as this has become my favorite gun. The sights/aiming was on the high side as I was aiming dead center with the sights. The next set would have been much much better but not that much ammo there that day with me. And bhai, I cannot shoot for less than 25meters - rather will try to group from a longer distance.:)

Thanx Moeen bro and I must say I just love looking at those bullets, they remind me too much of my favorite calibers, lol!

Well, looking forward to watching your next session then. Explain the recoil/sound-wave plz, as in comparison to the TT round, which I trust is closest in comparison?

@AK47 - Bro, I can't say as to the sound too much as I have NOT heard a .30bore being fired since we had that mini gtg in Haripur. But I do believe the sound to be the same. Recoil felt was definitely less than the 9mm or I should say a glock or I can say equal to the fully loaded (heavy) with compensator CZ Czechmate which equates to very very low kick.

Interesting, with the ammo I was using it was hitting low at say 15m and right where I was aiming at 100m. Try it at longer distances as the gun performs really well there. :)

Well, nice seeing you finally since long boss!

I've always said and wish to repeat again that dear and beloved BNS bro is the only guy I've ever seen who gives HECK to: "Breathing control", "weavers", stances, etc. It's merely roller-coasting only and about pulling, squeezing and downing only, that's it! Excellent shots Moeen bro, loved to see the roundies going down one by one and QUICKLY! Simply Superb.

You know what, if only your skill was a trade-able item, even 50% of it, I'd be a 1.st buyer and willing to sacrifice a next handgun for it, no doubts, lol!

Thanks for the share bro,

Btw, I was thinking the shots shown here would be from your latest mistress, let's have some news on it too, how's she fairing, any more ammo purchases?

Well, none available yet in market, sources claim that ammo is on way from Fiocci or something like that. FakharAlam will be importing it and selling it for 800/rs each round and some other sources have stated that Shah Alam is importing it. Either way, nothing yet. But once they come in - this FN will be a hot item as there are probably only 35-50 pieces around.
Me - I have plenty, I buy in bulk from sources (dealers) in Peshawar.
