FN P90

FN P90

I talked recently about the FN (Fabrique Nationale d’Herstal) FiveseveN pistol and how it was designed in conjunction with the FN P90 which uses the same 5.7x28mm round. Caliber : 5.7 x 28 mm Weight (empty): 5.5lbs Length: 19.7” Barrel length: 10.4” Cyclic rate of fire: 900 rpm Practical rate of fire: 50 – 150 rpm Magazine capacity: 50-30-10 round capacity Sighting range: 150 m Range of effective fire: 200 m The P90 uses a unique “Top mounted longitudinal magazine” (patented by Rene Predazzer in March 6th 1990.) to give the shooter a compact bullpup design without the added length of a magazine hanging down off the weapon. With the magazine mounted on top of the gun it allows the magazine to span over half the length of the gun to carry up a 50 round magazine. The weapon was designed for close quarters as a PDW and with police and military ability to fire body armor-piercing … What you’re missing….

This pistol has a high efficiency muzzle brake and “Nitrogen recoil controller” (a shock absorber) so when firing this gun you don’t rip your arm off trying to contain the recoil of the .50 BMG.

Flash Bang 12 gauge shotgun shell

Flash Bang 12 gauge shotgun shell

  I thought this was pretty awesome! It is a 12 gauge flash BANG shell This shell was developed as a stun/diversion round used for riots or in clearing a building for law enforcement. When fired this rounds makes a loud bang and a bright flash to stun someone, when fired, the concussion and explosive blast is directional and produces between 175-182 db. Testing showed no penetration in 10% ballistic gelatin at 8 feet. The round is similar to a diversionary grenade (a flash-bang) and designed to be aimed at the floor or ceiling at a 45 degree angle and never intentionally at a person or object.This round should to be used with screw in chokes.
