The FN Five-seveN shoots a different pistol round than most, and it’s designed as a substitute for the most popular handgun round. In fact, NATO recommended it over 9mm Luger in the early 2000s.

Demolition Ranch has a habit of trying out new and different types of firearms, and this latest video is no different. Today we get to take a look at the FN Five-seveN; a standard-sized pistol that shoots a 5.7 x 28 mm round and holds 20 rounds in its magazine. The round is made to shoot more like a rifle than a pistol and shoots straight and fast.

Take a look below to see it in action.

Bet you didn’t really expect to get to see those amazing dry ice explosions in there, did you? Of, course dry ice is an amazing way to test and see what kind of damage or explosion the FN Five-seveN creates when it hits it’s target. The Five-seveN is definitely an interesting looking weapon and one that we’d certainly like to see put through the ringer a bit more.
