Hi, I was just reading up on the P90 and absolutly love that gun. I was wondering if anyone here knows if there are any plans to make a civillian P90 that's semi-only or if that would be possible. Just an idea...flame at will.

I would like to have a P-90 in any form. I talked to an FN rep at the shot show, he pretty much said don't count on a civilian version of the P-90 and the 5-7 pistol, because of the AP properties of the 5.7 round. It looks like it will be a LE, Military only weapon. Dare to dream though.

never happen. even ignoring the AP properties of the 5.7 mm. think of the barrel you would have to have on that thing, that would take all the fun out if it there. and their would be NO hi cap mags for it.

We had a chance to buy P90s 2 years ago, but we deemed then that the price was high, so they were sold out and we were left biting our nails.

Just to reiterate, BATF considers the 5.7mm a 'NON-sporting' cartridge, so there is no way in hell it'll ever be approved for US civilian sales. Plus of course it would only accept a 10rd mag, have to have a bbl of at least 16", conform to the AW and import bans, etc... Even if they did allow it, it would be a VERY expensive, even uglier, neutered, 10rd cap version of the real thing. Besides, my understanding is that the gun pretty marginal at best. Apparently the 'revolutionary' 5.7mm sucks, and doesn't penetrate worth a damn. The fancy side feeding mag jams up if you smack the gun on the stock hard enough. Just my $.02.

From what I understand it will be in the typical $200-$400 range and most likly hold between 200 and 400 rds. PS. Have you seen the Vulcan Cannon (ie:Mini-Gun)looks identical to the one on the movie Predator, has a very large battery, and holds 2000 rds,it shoots 2000RPM! Easily waste the neighborhood cat!
