7.5 Field Pistol - I so want one.

Recommended Posts

The FK BRNO is a new pistol that will be imported for the first time in February.  The say it is a new and unique concept and design and fires a proprietary cartridge, the 7.5 FK.

The Field Pistol is a sporting pistol designed primarily to be used in long-range competitions, silhouette shooting, hunting, and generally any pistol shooting activity and tasks that requires the ability to engage targets at longer ranges, especially with a folding stock , such as (PSD) personal security detail, urban / suburban combat, backup (SBR) short barrel rifle, Air crew survival weapon, mechanised armour crew weapon, among other uses. Of course adding a folding stock requires a tax stamp.

 

It is guaranteed to shoot less than 100x100mm at 100m.  That is under a 4" group at 100m.  Muzzle velocity is 2000fps with 880 ft/lbs and at 100m is still 1525fps and 520 ft/lbs.

 

There are some interesting videos on their website.  They take some large animals (200-320lbs) and do ballistic gel testing.  Pretty impressive results.

 

Now for the bad news.  There is only one company that is going to import these.  There will only be 1001 6" Field Pistols made for the US.  The first order of 100 is almost all spoken for.  They are accepting refundable deposits of $2500 to reserve a pistol.  Price for the pistol is $7500.  The ammo is 77.50 for a box of 50 95 gr hp.  

 

Don't know why but I really want one of these.  If you see me posting a lot of toys for sale on here you will know I have finally lost my mind.  lol.

It comes with multiple sights.  The Butterfly sight seems to be the best for hunting and long range shooting.

That's a good looking pistol, something visually appealing about it. But that's one of the craziest prices I've ever seen.

Does it come with a gunsmith? JK...

Actually a valid question.  It would suck always having to ship it back to Europe if there is an issue.  Not sure if there is going to be a qualified gunsmith in the US to work on it.

Did not realize or had forgotten that it was discussed before.  

One of the things they say a couple of times in the video is that you get the recoil of a .40 cal with the power of a .44 mag.

I'm with you KahrMan  in the I want one cataory.  Why, because I don't have one and it just sounds like something I would like to have is why.  It does have some interesting features and the ballistics make it look better.  The only thing is the $$$$.  Looks like the actual cost is running about $3-4 more tan they were projecting 2 years ago.

I'd want to see some measured data there.

That sounds great in a marketing piece - but Newton still has to sign off.  And, he's a jerk...

If you watch the videos on the site they do some ballistic gel companions with different calibers.

I'll check them out.

I don't discount the energy delivered to a target - pushing a 98gr round that fast is going to dump some energy when it hits something.  I question what the shooter is going to feel (and recognize that some of that is going to be subjective.)

It's a cool design.  I like how they appear to have lowered the bore axis. At first I looked at that beavertail and thought, "wow they're serious about that." But they have to be, I guess.  Without it, it would be like the Model 97 of the pistol world.

7.62x25 Tokarev is what the cartridge reminds me of. I have a lot of time with the x25 and believe it would make one of the best self defense calibers in a modern pistol design. This one is a bit hotter than the x25. If you haven't looked at the x25, take a serious look at it because it will do a lot of what this one will at a fraction of the cost. At one time you could buy drop in x25 barrels for 1911's chambered in 38 super.

In order to reduce felt recoil they have to add mass to the gun. It looks heavy so that might be how they are doing it. 880 ft pounds of energy with felt recoil of a 45ACP is a pretty neat trick if they indeed pulled it off.

Now that's a good looking handgun. A bit on the pricey side however.

Just a bit and by a bit I mean they are out of their f'ing minds but I still want one. :rofl:

For that money I'll go build a bolt action .338 LM and hit 100×100mm targets out to +1k.

I do very much like the looks, just not the price tag.

$7,500 is a bit much but if it’s only 100 units, I can understand the price. It’s a very cool gun but think I’d rather put the money in other toys. Do they let you visit the factory?

It penetrates level IIIA body armor at 20 yards. And put a bowling ball size hole in the clay behind it. Pretty serious stuff.

Any Tok or CZ 52 pistol with milsurp 7.62X25 ammo will penetrate 99% of level 3A BA, so will a 9mm Liberty ammo round shot from any 9mm pistol!

Yeah, him and that dang Murphy guy

I find that most often I run into Murphy when I don’t pay proper attention to Newton.

      Hi all. Recently started becoming interested in the reflex red dots and bought the Walther Q5 Match and mounted a Vortex Venom on it. I took it out to the range on two occasions now along with a few other 9mm of mine. 
      First, about the pistol:
      - Great striker fired pistol. I own dozens of guns and only two are polymer, this and my Springfield XDS 3.3. I have shot many, however. Best striker trigger out of the box that I have fired. Granted it’s not my Kimber Aegis Elite but that’s not expected. 
      - Nice balance in my hand. Comfortable grip. 
      - Holy muzzle flip. Not an issue for slow shooting but follow up shots take some work. 
      - Flawless operation out of the box. Can’t say that about a lot of new guns I’ve purchased in the last year sadly. (Looking at you Ruger and S&W)
      The sight mounted easily with the number one plate included with the Walther. It came with three different mounting plates. 
      I had been practicing dry fire and presentation with the sight and find the dot very easy to find. No issues with “searching”. While this is my first sight of this nature, I do have a rail mounted Browning Red Dot on two Buckmarks.
      I used the sight in “auto” mode and found the brightness very good for the range I visit. It was easy to zero in. 
      Shooting with the dot:
      I shot this gun today along with my Beretta M9A3. At close range I found my Beretta much easier to group nicely and tighter. Close range is 5-7 yards. 
      Beyond that, out to 25 yards, is where I saw the huge benefits on the dot. It improved my accuracy tremendously compared to the open sights of the Beretta (a gun I have tens of thousands of rounds experience with). My goal is to continue practicing speed and accuracy with the optic mounted pistol at the closer ranges. My confidence at longer ranges has gone through the roof with it!

      Is there any dealers in the tri-cities area that stock Glock 48 night sights?

      I found a really good deal on a DW Guardian in .38 super locally. I have been searching for a Guardian in 9mm for awhile and haven’t been able to find one. I Have never shot .38 super. Would it be a good carry round? I’m assuming it’s way more expensive than 9mm. Wonder if you could swap barrels and bushing to 9mm if you wanted
