NRA Gun of the Week: FNH Five-SeveN MK2

posted on August 29, 2015
In response to the late 1980s NATO request for replacing the 9x19 Parabellum, FN Herstel devised a unique and what would become a controversial cartridge, the 5.7x28 mm. The new cartridge platform offered the availability of high round count, blazing speed and minimal recoil in its marriage with the FN P90 and Five-SeveN pistol. The latter is the subject for the latest selection as "NRA Gun of the Week." The FN Five-SeveN MK2 is a polymer-framed, delayed blowback, striker-fired pistol. Onboard undefinedammunition storage is provided by a whopping 20-round capacity, detachable box magazine. Fully ambidextrous controls add ease of operation to this platform and the minimal felt recoil enables the shooter to stay on target during the course of fire. Adjustable three-dot sights are found atop the steel slide, allowing for precision accuracy. Under the dust cover is a 1913 Picatinny rail section which allows for the myriad tactical accessories available today. FNH USA suggests a retail pricing of $1,349.
