A five seven has always been on my sort of want list. Really like OD green and found one on gunbroker a couple nights ago. Got it for $1540 shipped and I see two other green ones recently sold for $2,000. The one I bought has fixed sights and those other two have adjustable. Not really sure how much of a difference that makes in the price since the auction I won was recently listed and had a buy it now option. Always thought the adjustable sights on the current 5.7's were a little too high and target-like for my tastes, so hopefully I will like the fixed sights.

Are their any tritium sights made for it? Also wondering if there are any shoulder stock options available. I've seen some for Glock pistols in the past. Not looking for a bullpup type platform just a stock that could be easily/quickly attached. I'm an 07/02 so I can SBR it super easy.

Sight options are pretty limited. Elite Ammunition currently has my slide and is installing fiber optics on it.

Never seen a stock for a Five Seven. Aftermarket support is extremely limited. It took me over a month to even find mags, but they are back in stock now.

$1540 isn’t bad if green is your thing. Pic looks FDE, but saw your auction and the box says OD. Must be the flash. I got my boring black one for $1150ish shipped.

I would stock up on mags. I was pretty nervous when they were not in stock, having also just purchased a CMMG Banshee in 5.7 and only having 5 total mags, excluding the Promag that came with the CMMG.

Is this different than the one on Buds for $1299.00?

its green. black and fde are still in production and a lot cheaper. I could have gotten one of those for $1092 but I paid an extra ~420 for a color

Maybe they just got it in.

Sorry, it looked OD to me but couldn't find where it said.
Hope you like it. I've had a black one for a long time and I really like it.

My buddy got lucky at a pawn shop earlier this year and got a once fired OD 5.7 for $1200. Super jealous and told I get first right of refusal if he ever sells it

You still did good though

Anybody see the recent Paul Harrell video on the Fiveseven? The SS198 and SS197 really do a number on the meat target, I was impressed to say the least.

He does, he wears foam ear plugs always and only wears eyes when shooting hard targets.

So that's all you took away from the video, no eyes or ears?
