    have any of you guys heard about this new HK pistol? i havent even heard of that caliber before. whats your opinion on it and do you think it could be a replacement for current 9mm sidearms within NATO?

    Looks like a FN Five-Seven knock-off. The caliber of that gun is sure an odd one as well...

    yeah, i thought it was going into the five seven direction as well. are there any units besides special forces that make use of the five seven? who needs a 4.6x30mm round fired from a pistol and what is it good for?

    close range assasination, silenced. European anti-terrorism units currently operate with that calibre.

    From what I read when the PDW/MP7 was being developed with this round, that it had incredible penetrating ability through body armor. If memory serves correctly, with the PDW in 4.6x30mm they were able to penetrate Spetsnaz body armor (which included a titanium plate) at 125m, out of a 7.06" barrel.

    Though the barrel on this is about 2" shorter, it should still have impressive penetration abilities at ranges much further than traditional handgun combat.

    Ah, found more information on the penetration of this round:

    Armor Penetration: 1.6mm titanium/20 laters of Kevlar: >200m.

    executive protection details. The 5-7 is carried as a long range pistol by many.

    I have always been a big supporter of the P90/5-7 and glad to see that while once again the lab info is not conclusive, the real world shows different.
