A few of us have gotten them first week of January.
Expect them to roll out later on in the year.

The ones in gunshows are selling for about 2 grand or more.

I just don't get why people buy gun at gunshows. In sc, there is minimum $100 over the value of the gun.

isnt an FNP90 considered a Carbine or rifle?

FN calls it a "carbine". It's over the 26" overall length, so check your state laws.

why is it in the pistol section was my main question.

what is the barrel length?
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 3:06:10 PM EDT
It's 16.1", overall length is a hair over 26"
In MI, it's considered a pistol but to the Feds, it is a carbine/rifle (it says rifle on the 4473).

okay.

little sensitive there? it was more or less a question. not a bash on you. if thats the way you take it though maybe you need to lighten up.

Very nice gun, I read the article and was impressed. But.....way too pricey, I would have to sell all my guns to buy a PS90. $1700 buys a lot of guns.

any idea on the cost of the mags?

Not that you would need to many with a 50rd cap.
what is the pistol useing the same round?

the 5seven?

50rd P90 mags are about $60-$70 each.

The FN Five-seveN USG pistol is the current pistol using this cartridge.
Rhineland Arms is supposed to close to releasing a 5.7x28 AR-15 upper that takes the P90 mags. There is also a company making a bolt-gun in 5.7x28

The cartridge resembles a cross between a 17 Mach 2 and 22LR, definitely a cool varmint cartridge.

any chance the pistol mag is compatible to the carbine mag?
would be nice to have the emergency back up. im guessing not though due to the feed design.

willyj,

The PS90 Carbine and Five-seveN pistol take the exact same ammo (SS190, SS192, SS195, SS196, & SS197). The SS190 is for LEO and Military only. Us peons can own the rest if you can find it.

i knew that.

it would be cool to be able to swap mags from the pistol to the carbine.
like a oly arms AR15 lower that will feed glock mags if you made a 9mm carbine

or the old Marlin Camp rifle that fed the 3rd gen S&W mags or the .45 one that fed 1911 mags.
that way you can swap mags between the pistol and rifle!

or how the M249 has a mag well to feed 30rd mags.

compatability. i like that.
i was hoping the PN90 and the Fseven would have done something akin to that.

i doubted the mag from the pistol would work in the P90 due to the loading design. its nice they share the same round

No. Carbine mag actually rotates the round 90 degrees to load. The pistol mag is a conventional pistol mag.
