The functions of handguns like SIG, HK, etc. for the price of a Glock.

A high capacity (16+1), quality, double action firearm that you can beat to shit and abuse for around $450 is what every man needs.

But is it an evil cop killer gun?

yes, but does it take Glock mags?

No because this one has a proper grip angle.

I think FN is making a major move on the market.
Link Posted: 1/19/2006 8:15:17 PM EDT
isnt this the same pistol they marketed under the browning name? either way i like it just from looking at it. CMMG was talking bout it last year, gave up asking bout it since it never seemed to materialize so i could look and hold one. might have to start checking back into it now.
Link Posted: 1/19/2006 8:18:07 PM EDT
Ive shot the browning versoin in 40sw I needed to change the backstap but other wise it was very nice

I dont like Magazine disconnects.

Does the 5-7 have one too?
Link Posted: 1/19/2006 8:28:12 PM EDT
won't fire with the magazine removed. I had one in 40 and it was kinda boring. I sold it

I hate that about FNs too.

Will a Glock fire with the magazine removed?

I think he means the PS90 and FS2000, so grammatically you are correct...they are not assault rifles.

Hopefully this one can be corrected like the HP. I wonder if the 5.7 can have the disconnet removed.

I believe I read somewhere on here or maybe the 5.7 forum that yes the disconnect can be easily removed but doing so will VOID your warranty.
