What are the restrictions or who can have access to FN's P90 or the the FiveSeven Pistol? Can civilians own such items or did I read correctly somewhere the 5.7 round is outlawed in the land of free????[smoke] If you have a FFL can you have access to these? Thanks, Dan Tucker Upstate NY

The FN FiveSeven is not available to cililians. It shoots an extremely high powered, high velocity armor piercing round. I believe the P90 was introduced after the ban's, so it never made it over here for civilian sale.

There are a few Class-III dealer samples rolling around.

The 5-7 pistol and the P-90 sub-gun are only available to LE Agencies, and the Military, not individuals. A complete 5.7 X 28 round comes up to about the top of the shoulder on a .223 round. The bullet is 31 gr. steel jacketed with a front core of steel and the rest aluminum. [center] P-90 Velocity 2300 5-7 Velocity 1975 [/center] Both are capable of pentrating level II vests and the P-90 was designed to penetrate a level IIIA vest. They are made in SC, and are relativley new weapons. There is no semi version of the P-90 (IIRC) it has [red]safe/go time [/red] for the selector.
