    New FiveSeven owner!

    I've been telling myself if I found a decent deal on a five seven, I'd jump on it. I'm a 3x FN owner and obviously enjoy everything I have thus far. With that said, I'm not too familiar with the five seven, and its different offerings and highlights, but I came across this 5-7 today at my LGS and jumped on it! I'm really excited to see what this bad boy can do!! Also, picked up quite a few boxes of 197 to go with it...
    Aside from sharing my excitement with the forum, I wanted to see if anyone had any recommendations or insights. I'm gonna read up, but figured I'd put this out there and see what came of it!

    thanks!!

    by the way, if someone was looking, they had one more...

    Congrats! My only recommendation is to load up on ammo (looks like you've started) and enjoy the hell out of it.

    Good deal! Get extra mags if you can and if that's your thing. If you want night sights, they can be custom installed. Pro-Mag makes an extended 30-round magazine. Threaded barrels are available or can be made out of the factory barrel. As far as ammo, anything you can find works lol. It can also be hand loaded but that is a whole 'nother discussion lol.

    Thanks everyone! Definitely going to enjoy it and stock up on ammo. The LGS had more boxes of the FN 197 but my pocket could only take so much at a time. Night sights would be nice...

    thanks for the feedback

    $1100, which sounded decent to me...
