Re: slide cover kaboom

and i think you are correct in regards to the serial number...i checked the original seriall number and this one is far after that , so they must've just continued on with them from the last model....

Re: FN FiveseveN Pistol Variants

Therefore, for optimal performance, we recommend commercial customers use the SS197sr or Fede...
