I wanted to know if any of you 5-7 fans have heard if fn is planning to make new models for the 5.7 caliber in a hand gun. I would like to see a thinner smaller 5-7 pistol that is a bit shorter and more easy to carry for CCW.

I'll have to look to see where it was answered, but I'm pretty positibe that they claimed there would be none.

I would assume part of the reason is that shorter barrel would lower the velocity of the round and make it less effective - as the round was originally designed for the 10" P90 barrel.

They say there is no plan. I can think of some revolvers that could be converted fairly easily. 5.7 not having a rim it would be a bit silly. but it would work

A Five-seveN bolt gun would be the answer to my prayers...

I think I will soon be the only one in the world to own one... It'll probably be about another year or so before I reach that goal, though.

The FsN is already made in FDE.

You won't have the only one.

Custom bolt guns have been made in 5.7 for a few years now but are way out of my price range.

About the only model I could think of would be a factory threaded barrel, and a a provision to add a red dot sight.

I would kinda like to see just an updated look kinda more squarish, with traditional dovetail sights, try to slim the grip a bit and reduce the bulk a bit, take a tad of lenght and height. Nice and light, but more trim.

There are factory threaded barrels. Very rare and very expensive.

If you will look inside the grip, you'll see there is no spare room to slim it down. The length of the round and the mag size needed to hold it keeps the grip at it's present size.

FN has said that the length of the pistol is due to the captured recoil spring system used to make the pistol function properly. That is also the reason they have given why there will not be a compact model.

abbreviation for FiveseveN. They make them in black, OD, and FDE (slide covers are all black however).
