The Marushin Five Seven is a revolutionary design and is different from any other airsoft pistol on the market. The controls are basically in reversal to other more traditional designs. The safety is in the forward position and can be operated by your index finger, which is good since your finger should be off the trigger. And, the slide release is in the rear position where is can easily be manipulated by your thumb. These control features allow the gun to be operated efficiently with one or both hands. The tactical rail on the frame allows you to mount accessories like flashlights and lasers. Also, the Five Seven has excellent sights; a front sight has a white dot and the rear sight is adjustable. This gun is an excellent choice for anyone but should be of particular interest to collectors who are looking for the latest.

This was my first gas blowback pistol. I have had it for a little over a year, and it still works perfectly. It has a nice weight to it... About 1 and a half pounds. It disassembles quickly, too. The trigger pull is nice, only needing to pull it back a little bit. The safety will lock up a little bit, but lubricant will fix the problem. It is accurate to about one hundred feet, after adjusting the hop-up. The open breech design allows you to use 6mm paintballs. Caution: do NOT use .12 gram bb's with this, because it will jam up in the middle of a game. Only use high quality .20 gram bb's with this. The blue lettering is nice, and says "FN Belgium" on one side and "cal. 5.7x28" on the other. The amount of recoil is perfect: not too little, but at the same time not too much so you have to re aim after every shot. It holds 18 rounds, two less than the real steel. FPS is around 280 to 300 somewhere (sorry, I don't own a chrono). It is able to fire really rapidly already, just don't fire too fast, or it will jam; However, If you want it to fire even more rapidly, redwolfairsoft.com has a rapid flow valve to upgrade it. This is a very good gun, and I suggest it to all serious airsoft players. Good job Marushin and Thank you AirsoftGI!
