FN Herstal Five-Seven CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol (Option)[P02B00][33579 / 200507-200509]
The FN Five-Seven Co2 Pistol Airsoft Gun is fully licensed by FN Herstal and is powered by Co2. Made completely out of polymer, the pistol is nonetheless rigid and solid with a full functioning safety and slide release. The blowback on this pistol is solid due to the Co2 propellant and lightweight slide. The slide itself features serrations for racking traction. An underslung rail system allows for the installation of tactical lights and lasers. The included three dot sight makes it easy for you to stay on target. The grip is textured and designed for maximum traction. The magazine is made completely out of metal, and houses a single Co2 12 Gram Cartridge. Running at a modest 330 fps, this pistol is a great choice if you're looking for something unique and serviceable in close quarters. The Five-Seven is an outstanding pistol, perfect for those who want something truly unique and reliable.

The FN Five-seveN is amazing has great recoil (like a .22 cal pistol) is licensed by FN, light, good at conserving Co2, (about 3-4 magazines) the magazine holds 22+1 in the chamber (I prefer the real 20+1 rounds) is ambidextrous, has an under rail for mounting any light or laser, great build quality, the magazine is all metal (which is were the weight is from.) The Five-seveN is built by Marushin in Japan but this one is their Co2 upgrade (Maybe compatible with their old version.)
overall this pistol is good maybe it can compete with the TM Five-seveN.
light (could be a con.)
licensed by FN
Co2 (great for colder climate regions)
22+1 magazine capacity
has an under rail for any flashlight or laser
made in Japan by Marushin ( this gun is basicaly an up-grade to their green gas version.)
slide feels solid no wobble
can this model compete with the TM version?
light (could be a pro)
the plastic on the slide feels fragile when pressing on it hard enough but feels durable.
the safety is in an unusual spot were it's easy to engage on accident.
the take down lever is hard at first but with a little force it will come lose
putting back the slide on the frame is hard (I need some more practice.)
This pistol is by far my favorite pistol that I've ever had. Very lightweight, accurate, and fun to shoot. Kicks hard, and a very nice trigger pull, similar to a 1911. Considering it's made of plastic, you can easily get 3-4 mags per cartridge. Only issue is that the safety can be put on a bit too easy, once it's halfway between safe and fire, it automatically switches to safe. So the recoil can sometimes put the safety on. Also, the gun is bigger than you'd expect, so it doesn't really fit into normal sized holsters. As well as the mags BARELY fit into my pistol pouches, but they do.
Plastic = lightweight
Nice trigger pull
Amazing gas consumption
Does not fit in regular holsters, too big
Too good of a safety
For as big as the mag is, it should hold more (it holds 22)
Mag is almost too big for regular pistol pouches
After firing about a thousand rounds from the pistol, I can say that its definitely a good buy if its within your price range.
The box says that the FPS is 400+, but I can confirm that with .25 bbs (which you should be using for maximum accuracy at range anyway), its more like 300-350. The 400 figure is either the first shot from a fresh co2 cartrige, or with a .12/.16 gram bb
Out of the box, it tends to fire high and left, but this shouldn't be too much of a problem since the sights can easily be adjusted with a Flathead screwdriver. The hop-up isn't too difficult to get to. It's located behind the barrel/spring on the upper receiver. Disassembly isn't to complicated once you get used to it. Similar to taking the upper receiver off on the real thing.
As far as reliability goes, it consistently allows for about 80-100 bbs to be fired before changing co2. (So, if you get a 40 pack of co2 for around 20 bucks, it costs around 50 cents to fire around 90 bbs). This may seem like its unreliable, but this is the standard performance from what I've experienced with co2 guns in general. The trade off is that there aren't as many parts to break as opposed to the gearboxes of an electric gun.
The only con about this gun performance isn't really with the gun at all. Its more to do with the magazines. The capacity for the mags isn't too bad, but from what I can tell they are impossible to actually take apart completely to clean. I'm sure you could take off a couple individual parts, but it seems impossible to take out the spring to replace/clean. (If someone knows, post a video on youtube so everyone can see how). The reason this is so much of a problem is because the mag that came with my gun is complete garbage. It doesn't leak co2, but the bbs don't feed properly into the top of the mag. Therefore, they don't feed properly into the gun. So, this leads to racking the slide until it catches. Thus far, this is the only problem I have with the gun.
Aesthetics/"The feel of the gun":
I saved this bit for the end because this has been done to death by every youtuber on the planet that reviews this gun. None of this should be a shocker.
This gun is possibly the most "realistic" feeling gun I have ever owned. The model is extremely comfortable to hold. This being said, it is definitely back- heavy given the full-metal co2 mag. I personally prefer this so that I can get a better grip on the gun, but if you don't like that, then definitely consider getting a full-metal gun.
The only reason this gun doesn't get five stars is the mag, and the efficiency. I wish I could shoot more than 100 rounds before switching co2, and I wish the mag would feed bbs properly. Otherwise, this gun would be five stars. I hope this review is helpful. Godspeed, fellas.
Decent fps with .25 bbs
Mag doesn't feed well, and doesn't look like it can be disassembled.
80-100 shots per co2 cartrige (but this is standard so its mostly a general complaint more than anything)
