FNH Five-seveN USG

These are one of a kind pistols.

Performance

The FN Five-seveN shoots more accurate than mt 1911 custom 45. It has little to no kickback and with the diversity of ammo available this gun is a perfect Concealed carry pistol. It has a built in rail system and I have a 65 lumen light set up on my gun.

Features

Chambered in 5.7x28mm, the FN Five-seveN USG utilizes a polymer frame and slide cover to create an incredibly light and easily maintained auto-loading pistol. Single-action operation combined with an internal hammer and highly textured grip enhance handling characteristics.

Appeal

The Five-seveN USG features a traditional style trigger guard, reversible magazine release, magazine disconnect and adjustable sights. Fixed 3-dot combat sights, either with or without self-luminous tritium elements are also available as an option.
The low recoil impulse of the 5.7x28mm cartridge is only 60% of typical 9mm loadings for rapid and accurate follow-up shots.
This pistol is light weight, easy to carry, easy to handle, yet built very sturdy.

I use this pistol as my concealed carry pistol, which I carry with me daily. It is light weight, fits into my shoulder harness and does not cause any discomfort or pain. Even if I carry it all day long. I also have a Fobus adjustible tactical paddle holster made just for this pistol, unfortunately my rail light does not fit with the fobus holster.
I have nitesiters glow dots on my gun and they work beautifully. I am waiting on trijicon to make a set of night sites for this pistol.
I give this pistol a 10, it is easy to handle, easy to shoot, the ammo is reloadable, and fairly easy to acquire. The Five-seveN is very accurate; the polymer is easy to grip and has not become too cold in the frigid cold spells where I live.

5.7x28 is a great round. the only downsides are that the pistol is uglier than shit (my opinion),ammo is expensive, and the trigger sucks... but it's built solid and it's reliable and accurate.
