The FN Five-SeveN is a full-sized pistol that makes extensive use of polymer to create an extremely light yet high-capacity full-sized handgun. Using FN’s own 5.7x28mm cartridge, the Five-SeveN has an impressive range as far as handguns go.
Developed in conjunction with FN’s P90, the FN Five-SeveN was built around the new 5.7x28mm cartridge to meet new NATO standards for a combat pistol. The result was an internal hammer-fired, delayed blowback, polymer-frame pistol with an extremely high capacity and low overall weight. A 4.4-inch barrel and 20-round standard magazine capacity yield a pistol that still only weighs 20 ounces unloaded. The 5.7x28mm cartridge provides shooters with a longer range, while the delayed blowback system minimizes recoil greatly.

The PSA 5.7 Rock brings improved capacity and ergonomics to the world of 5.7x28mm handguns, all while beating out similar guns in price.
“I was impressed with 5.7 Rock. The overall product displays attention to detail and refinement. PSA took their time with this gun, and it shows. Most importantly, it performed very well during our somewhat limited testing.” – Sean Curtis
“The FN Five-SeveN is a fantastic, highly underrated pistol. It has beautiful accuracy, sleek styling, and bomb-proof reliability. The downside? Both the gun and the exotic ammo are on the pricey side. However, we feel that the Five-SeveN is well worth it. If you have the chance to shoot a Five-SeveN, you should. It is unlike any gun I have ever shot and is truly a remarkable weapon.” – Lexi Olsen
