    Nice gun, no wear, 3 20rnd high cap mags. 1 box of ss195 and 6 boxes of ss192. The guy also has a crate of ss192 but hasn't found it yet and will bring it in when he finds it. Pics to follow later.

    previous owner traded it because its useless

    i wouldn't buy it until a can was available, the 5.56 cans are too heavy for that purpose

    I don't want to rain on your parade but you can't legally buy armor piercing ammunition. Gun that makes holes in people smaller than 9mm fmj rounds FTL.

    not true, depends on your state, you can also always load the shit yourself

    also, if you study ballistics, velocity has a lot to do with the equation, the size of the 9mm bullet is larger, but the velocity of the smaller 5.7 projectile more than makes up for that

    the velocity makes it armor piercing, not the actual bullet.

    If I ever got shot by a FN Five Seven, and found out about it later, I'd be pissed.

    j/k! Nice pick up man.

    I'm talking about kevlar vests not actual steel plate. the rounds for that is ss190

    ss192 and ss195 go through vests

    The brady bunch said ss192 could penetrate lvl2 armor, that started the whole 57 hysteria. I have yet to see an actual test replicate this although I'd welcome a link, FN used to have a notice on their page that they tried to do it and couldn't make it happen. Either way I wouldn't call it soft armor piercing if it can't penetrate a 3a vest, the next step up from level 2 in soft armor and what most people who want to wear body armor will choose. I've never seen anyone claim ss192 or 195 could penetrate lvl3a with non AP ammo.

    I've actually spent quite a bit of time studying ballistics and I have no idea why you think the velocity of this round means anything. Modern ballistic theory says energy dump is meaningless, its about the size of the hole you create in the tissue. 5.56 for example is smaller than 9mm, but when it yaws in tissue its velocity causes it to fragment making a much larger wound. 5.7 doesn't have the velocity for fragmentation. It makes a nice tiny hole. The bullets are so light that if they did fragment, they wouldn't penetrate deeply enough anyway. Any way you slice it 5.7x28 is a poor performing cartridge by what the widely accepted standards of terminal performance are.

    Anyway my point is enjoy the gun as a fun gun to shoot, but don't think you have an armor penetrating pistol or a really sweet self defense round.

    I might be misreading...is 7k the cost of the gun itself or there are 7k more rounds if you wanted them?

    you know why the dealer calls you first on trade ins?

    because you're a sucker with an impulse problem.

    So the owner gets something in that has nothing more to offer than a "cool" factor and he calls you?

    NO WAY!
