Miniature Macho

FNH USA’s 5.7×28 Varmint Blasters

By Roy Huntington

ProChrono

The ProChrono showed the PS90 to deliver about 2,100 fps or so with the new Sporting 5.7×28 load.

Five-Seven

On the Five-seveN, the safety is in an unusual place for American Shooters, but can still be reached by the trigger finger.

Slide

The slide is steel, covered by polymer and the barrel does not use a swinging link but remains horizontal during firing.

Grip

Molded-in checkering works fine, but Roy would like to see an optional slimmer rear grip profile offered using inserts.

Inside

Note the hammer at the rear. Even though from the outside the Five-seveN looks like a striker-fired gun, it actually does have a hammer.

Slide Makeup

Simple but rugged construction is obvious in the slide’s make-up.

Firing Pin

The firing pin safety means the gun can’t fire unless there is a deliberate pull of the trigger.

Optical Sight

The optical sight on the PS90 is one power and has a unique “circle-crosshair” reticle. It’s fast and clear.

PS90

There are ambidextrous cocking handles on the forend of the PS90.

Rounded Fore-Grip

The unique rounded fore-grip offers a hand-hold and a balance
point when carrying the rifle in two hands.

Chamber Area

Looking down, into the chamber area on the PS90. The magazine locks home here and each round “rotates” into position from the magazine. Keep in mind the last three rounds in the gun (two in the magazine and one in the chamber) are not visible.

Butt-Plate

Sliding the butt-plate up reveals the entire trigger/hammer assembly. It’s easily removed for cleaning with a press of one lever

Ammo

The 5.7×28 falls somewhere between the .22 Magnum (left) and the .223 (right). Roy feels it favors a bit toward the .223 in performance.
