The new five sevens are SAO i guess...shot one today...really like it! The manual sez trigger pull 5.5 lbs, it felt good.Nose Nuggets said:see, i like the look and feel of the five 7 but i HATE the DAO. cant stand it. will never own a DAO.
Nose Nuggets said:dude an SAO five seven might make some serious competition for this taurus im looking at.
i actually have to agree with addler here.Adler said:How so??? It is 2x the price, the ammo it shoots penetrates well, but doesnt have effective topping ability, and its about the ugliest gun I have seen. The 24/7 Pro was the NRA gun of the year, I dont hear anyone loving the 5.7 guns other than they feel like a 22lr.
Is it single or double action?Mach5 said:Well I got a five seven USG today as a Birthday gift...got it 3 days early (my b-day is on the 4th and we'll be at a superbowl party).
I'm going to try and do some "real world" side-by-side testing with my Dad's Ruger .22 pistol. I'll take a bunch of pictures and try and do a good write up.
What are some tests you would like to see?
1) Video of recoil... or therefore lack of would be cool.
Color me jealous... Im thinking of picking one of these gems up soon. Prob gonna pick up a usp tactical, sell the fullsize and pickup a 57.Mach5 said:My first thoughts on this pistol were...Wow I spent a lot of money on this thing!
But that has changed, now it’s…Wow this pistol feels good in my hand. FN nailed the ergonomics on this pistol at least for my big dumb hands. The checkering on the grip is awesome and the grip in general is kick ass. I thought the XD had a good grip…but the Five-seveN USG blows it way on feel – period.
The pistol weight and balance are also very good. With a fully loaded mag (20 Rounds) down no round the pistol always feels perfect…once again in my big dumb hands.
The trigger pull is very clean and crisp and it goes bang around 4.5 to 6 lbs…I’ll try and get a more accurate pull reading soon.
The sights are also very nice and with how good the gun feels in your hand, they always line up very nice.
I’ll get out and shoot it in a few days and write some more.
Got a flush fit 18 rd mag for my hi-power, it has a reversable floorplate 18 sticks out just a little, turn it in for 17 rds,,,it argentine mag and some aftermarket floorplate, I was tripping when I loaded it full the 1st time. And shooting it.. keeps going and going....hi cap pistols that hold that many r so overkill, its awsome!Mach5 said:The pistol weight and balance are also very good.
