I love my FN Five Seven.. especially when I run SS198LF or S4M out of it.

My question is:

Are there any other pistols in development that use this incredible pistol cartridge?


The reason I ask is because I would love to have another option in the same caliber that is a bit smaller than the Fabrique National Five Seven.

Not anytime soon. Just the fn ps90 or the ar 57 upper. Proprietary cartridge that doesn't lend itself to be reloaded easily. If fn released its patents, maybe glock would put out a pistol. Also, the cartridge is wide, can't slim grip down and cutting barrel length would have negative impact on its ballistics.
Btw, I own fn 5.7 and it is soft on recoil. Beginners love it although it barks like a 357 magnum.

Here's one:

This actually uses the same mags as the Five Seven. That would be one sweet SBR if you tossed a collapsible stock on there, but as a pistol I can imagine it's just a heavy brick meant to look cool.

The low recoil, high velocity, highly accurate, light weight cartridges, and high mag capacity are the reasons the Five Seven is so great. Love this gun.

I am pretty sure he asked for a smaller alternative than the FN 5.7.
