Our Assessment: The FN Five-seveN pistol was developed in the early 1990s and features a cold hammer-forged barrel that is chrome-lined for extended service life. The polymer-framed FN Five-seveN offers single-action operation, low felt recoil, 20-round magazine capacity, and is equipped with an ambidextrous, forward-mounted manual safety, and an accessory rail that accepts tactical lights and lasers. The pistol is chambered for the 5.7x28mm cartridge, a small-caliber, high-velocity, center-fire cartridge developed for use in FN’s P90 series as well as this, the Five-seveN. The cartridge allows for high capacity in a smaller feeding device while still providing out-sized energy with a flat trajectory. This is a fantastic pistol chambered for an innovative cartridge and is in Excellent condition. Please see our pictures and good luck.
