Belgium’s FN Five-Seven Semi-Automatic Pistol


Production on Belgium’s semi-automatic pistol – the FN Five-Seven – began in 1998 after five years of design work.  The pistol is manufactured in Belgium and its name aptly reflects the 5.7mm diameter of the weapon’s bullet.   The design was based on – and developed as a companion of – the FN P90 which was introduced eight years earlier.   The FN-FNP is another Belgium semi-automatic pistol.
