Does anyone know of a laser training bullet in 5.7 x 28?

With ammo in tight supply, I have thought of using one of the home laser training systems to work on sight picture/trigger control issues.

Does anyone know a laser bullet that fits the Five Seven?

Re: Five-seveN mark II cycling issue

This is most likely casued by 2 things. 1) Primarily America Eagle ammo which is shit and has issues with bullets falling out and into their cases. 2)Also Lacquer build up in the chamber contributing. How do you prevent lacquer buildup in the chamber? Will normal gun cleaning - ie, Hope’s No. 9 rem...

Keep shooting what you have been shooting. That letter is a suggestion and won't stand up from a letter from an attorney.

SS198 is FN's manufactures ammo ro the pistol when used by LEO.
That makes sense - it worked flawlessly with both magazines in my pistol.

Took my new FiveSeven to the range for the first time today - ammunition questions

I took my brand new FiveSeven to the range today, and I had a blast. It was just a heck of a lot of fun to shoot. My other current handgun is an Armalite AR-24 15C, which is a forged steel CZ 75 clone made in Turkey and rebranded as Armalite and I imported in the early naughts. It is a fun gun, but ...

Re: Just bought a new new Five Seven

HEHEHE Yeah kinda thought that was you issue. No worries shit happens. I cleaned the pistol this weekend - prior to taking it to the range for the first time tomorrow, and the stiff release with an empty magazine suddenly made a lot more sense. Looking at the mechanism, releasing the slide on an em...

Re: Just bought a new new Five Seven

Yes or better still just pull back on the locked back slide and let go. I find this way of doing works best with all my firearms. This way I don't have to hunt for the slide stop lever since their location ans sizes can vary. I thought I tried pulling back on the slide release to release the slide ...

New Five Seven Mark II - very stiff slide release

I just bought a new Five Seven today - rented one, had fun shooting, and walked over to the counter and bought one. At least on an empty mag, the slide release is pretty stout, I can barely release the slide. Is it easier on a loaded mag? Or does it loosen up over time? The Five Seven I rented did n...

Just bought a new new Five Seven

The price at the local gun shop dropped to $999.99, so I pulled the trigger. I rented one, and enjoyed shooting, so I returned the rental, walked over to the retail counter, and started filling out paperwork. One thing I have noticed is that that slide release is very stiff. Will that ease up a I sh...
