Extremely disappointed in FN Herstal [Archive] - UZI Talk ...

I have owned several FNH guns in my life. Two old Browning doubles, a Hi-Power, and currently own a FAL, A-5 20 gauge, and two PS90's. My wife wanted a PS90 a couple of years ago, and even though I thought it was the FUGLIEST gun I've ever seen, I bought it for her. We SBR'ed it with a 1-7 twist barrel, and changed the weird plastic sight to the Secret Service style.

warning! caliber war/10mm vs 5.7 in stopping power | Glock ...

291 Posts. #14 · Nov 24, 2010. The 5.7 is a glorified .22 magnum. The round was originally designed to defeat body armor in personal defense type weapons (the FN P90 in particular), but civilians are not allowed access to the "armour" penetrating round. The ammo you and I can buy are varmint rounds and of limited SD use.

The Five-Seven pistol uses teeny, tiny centerfire cartridges labeled 5.7x28mm on the box.
