The FN Herstal Five-SeveN pistol is one of the nicest guns on the market today. The real steel is a counterpart of the FN P90 PDW, chambered in the same 5.7 round (hence the name) and is renowned for its armour piercing capability. Of course this is airsoft, and armour piercing is not of our concern! Manufactured by Marushin, this replica runs off of 12g disposable Co2 capsules for improved blowback/recoil. As part of their new EXb (exciting Blowback) series of guns, this gun has an improved finish, and really looks the part.
The controls are crisp, clicking firmly into place – no mushy levers make manipulation of this gun a dream. Weight distribution is spot on giving the gun a very balanced feel in the hand, and making it feel extremely solid. Manufactured in Japan, this replica adheres to the strict 1 joule limit, and chrono’s in around 0.7J whilst still giving superb range and accuracy.
The Co2 gives year-round performance, and doesn’t suffer from cool-down like other gas pistols. One of the first things you notice when holding this gun is that the white-dot tactical sights make aiming a breeze – the front blade-sight sits proud making target acquisition much faster. For greater handling the Five-Seven features rear slide serrations enabling easier racking of the slide, and on top of that it also has a 20mm accessory rail allowing you to bolt on lasers, torches etc to add another level to your gun.
