NO WEAPON SYSTEM HAD RECEIVED MORE PRESS THAN THE FN 5.7MM IN THE PAST DECADE.ADOPTED BY MANY COUNTRIES INCLUDING THE US SECRET SERVICE. IT IS A VERY FINE WEAPON SYSTEM. THE AMMUNITION COULD BE A COLLECTION IN ITS SELF. P90- The P90 is the ultimate system for operating in urban and other close-quarter battle scenarios. This system is built around FN’s revolutionary 5.7x28mm ammunition. It utilizes the SS190 armor-piercing duty round, a dual-core projectile that destabilizes on impact to limit over-penetration. The P90 provides a compact, lightweight and completely ambidextrous platform for this ammunition. The compact 50-round box magazine runs horizontally along the top of the P90. Empty cases are ejected downward where they cannot interfere with the operator. The selective-fire P90 fires from a closed bolt, giving it outstanding accuracy and making it easy to keep rounds on target. It is the ideal personal defense weapon for armored vehicle or helicopter crews, executive protection, law enforcement and tactical entry teams. The Standard P90 and P90 Triple Rail (TR) are also available in a semi-automatic only models. The P90 system is offered in several selective-fire configurations including models with non-magnifying black reticle reflex sights and with either visible and infrared laser target designation systems. Look to the FN P90 system to give you the tactical edge in a tight situation. F2000- The FN F2000 series takes the compact bullpup format to a whole new level by utilizing several interchangeable modules and thus replacing the need to have different firearms for different situations. Modern materials, innovative design and enhanced ergonomics combine with a full-length barrel to maximize ballistic performance of the 223 Remington/5.56x45mm chambering. Look to the future with the F2000 and F2000 Tactical models from FN. AMMUNITION- The SS190, the de facto 5.7 x 28 mm standard cartridge for military and law enforcement, was originally designed for the modern battlefield where troops may be wearing body armor and conventional pistol or submachine gun rounds may be ineffective. Currently the only firearms chambered for this cartridge are the Five-seveN pistol, the FN P90 personal defense weapon and the FN PS90 carbine. Singapore Technologies Kinetics, using the cartridge in the kinetic component of their Squad Support Weapon, is developing a third-party weapon system. Some military and police personnel view the 5.7 x 28 mm SS190 skeptically, although it is touted as a solution to defeating modern body armor. Many regard the SS190 as having insufficient "stopping power" for law enforcement use and this topic has seen much debate. A brief controversy ensued in the United States in 2004 when it was claimed by the Brady Campaign that the civilian-legal SS192 cartridges are able to pierce Level IIA body armor when fired from the Five-seveN pistol. All civilian-legal game hunting cartridges, and even several pistol cartridges, are capable of such penetration. The ability of SS192 to pierce body armor as claimed by the Brady Campaign was not confirmed with facts or data by any authoritative agencies or sources. The ammunition was not restricted for civilian sales, since it is not legally recognized as armor piercing by the BATFE. Nonetheless, FN chose to withdraw the SS192 from the market and replace it with the SS196SR. The SS196SR's performance against armor is diminished due to a heavier varmint bullet (leading to lower muzzle velocity) and a polycarbonate tip that promotes expansion and fragmentation upon impact. FN's 5.7 x 28 mm brass cases are covered with a special polymer coating for easier extraction on the Five-seveN pistol and PS90 carbine due to the high chamber pressures and lack of case tapering. In addition, the coating insures proper feeding and function in the P90 magazines. fakes- THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL FAKES MADE FOR THE COLLECTOR MARKET INCLUDING THE PURPLE BULLETED NOVELTY PICTURED HERE WITH A DRILL BIT STICKING OUT OF THE NOSE.
