I know they were made to be LEO, but since you can get full auto with a tax stamp, is there some way to get a 5.7mm rifle? Specifically the new FN p90. A buddy of mine saw it and decided he had to have one, so I looked it up and had to break the bad news that it was a 5.7 and no way could he get one. But I thought I would check to be sure.

6mm of bullet going 2200fps - out of a handgun. Imagine that being illegal in the United States...imagine that...

Well, I figured as much, but I was hoping for some hope. Is there any chance for another caliber for the fn p90 then?

I started a thread like that not too long ago, about a 9mm P90. Unfortunetly the devil is in the detail. Actualy becaus it's a bullpup the barrle wouldn't have to be too much longer to make it legal BUT, It would have to be made here. And there would be no hi-caps for it. Our only hope is that the AWB won't be renewed, and something like Ron Pauls 'second amendment rights restoration act' to get passed when if we have firm control of the house, senate, and presidenct in the post-04 time frame. Don't hold your breathe. It's unfortunate, because I really love it's ergonomics. [rail]

5.7mm version and bullpup design wasnt illegal here I would buy one.

Every single detail about the rifle is against you. [b]5.7[/b]-- non-sporting caliber. [b]Short barrel[/b]-- would have to be 16" [b]Hi cap. magazine[/b]-- can't import [b]Full auto[/b]-- even if it did get into this country YOU couldn't have one because its a post '86 dealer sample and therefore NOT transferrable... SO give3 it up. All you can have is pictures, posters and your Ultimate Soldier doll with his 5.7... I love that rifle too... BISHOP

Can my PD get them? cpermd

Actually I can get the soft air version full auto but it isn't the same. cpermd- I don't see why not. And they were pretty cheap as full autos go. Only 1400 for the top model. Unless your state has some restrictions on what the pd can own.
