The velocity is a lot slower than the FN boxed stuff for the same bullet weight.
I actually get fluctuations batch to batch, cold/hot weather, on the FPS. Sometimes ss197 is hotter, sometimes AE is. They are both around 1600-1700fps.

Re: Blackhawk Serpa holster review

Resurrecting this thread from the dead.... Blackhawk FINALLY offered a Serpa for the FiveseveN MKII, they produced 300 units and then shut production down. By the time I found out about it the only source I could find was a reseller on eBay. I wound up paying almost $120.00 for a holster that shoul...

My NIB MK2 is still sitting in the factory box waiting for Jay to be done with 1/1000 of his projects.

Once he comes out with the extended slide, I'll send it in for trigger work and extended bbl/slide.

Don; 2 main things; 1.

Others don't care. Most don't. 2. The slide release is a slightly...

Dude, Mike, your smith is rad.

Sounds like he is a true nerd/engineer/pistolcrafter at heart. I really enjoyed reading the F86 bit.

I think your FO front and factory rear is the ticket (my pref would be to black out the stupid white dots in the rear, too!)

Re: FsN MKII Sights

I think the front blade sight is implemented as such, for an attachment of a suppressor. I could be wrong but it makes sense to me. Initially, this came to mind, but it would barely even clear the rear of the suppressor, if it could. Also, I've seen multiple rear sights snap off or their screws com...

Aren't designed very intelligently. I bought a MkII and out of the box the rear sights looked like they were at the end of the set screw for elevation in the up direction.

FsN has low recoil - good for older people who don't prefer higher recoil firearms; carries a lot of ammo that is also very light. Mags are easy to load.
