Description

5.7x28mm was once seen as the round of choice for Central American drug lords–at least as far as most in the US were concerned, but as time has gone and the general population has become more aware of the round, it has developed a solid following here in America. With that, more and more manufacturers are jumping on the 5.7×28 train and supporting this once-niche round.

 

History of the 5.7x28mm Round

The FN 5.7x28mm round was originally created as part of an attempt by NATO to replace the 9x19mm round that was (and is) the standard sidearm round for most of the Western military and police forces.

The goal was to create a round with better range, accuracy, and terminal performance than the 9mm.

In 1990, FN completed development on the first 5.7 round, designated the SS90. It used a 23 grain projectile moving at 2800ft/s when fired out of the 10.4” barrel of the FN P90 (developed at the same time).

Out of the P90 the round was capable of penetrating Level IIIA ballistic armor at 200 meters.

NIJ IIIA armor is rated to stop a .357 magnum, so having a lightweight and lightly-recoiling round that could defeat this type of body armor at range was attractive to many potential adopters from various militaries and police agencies.

Further development led to a round with a slightly shorter, but heavier projectile that still reached speeds of 2350ft/s out of the P90. This SS190 would go on to become the standard 5.7×28 round.

The shorter length allowed the round to feed more reliably in the FN 5.7 handgun that was also in development at the time.

The P90 was then modified slightly to feed the SS190 reliably, and the two weapons, the SS190 round, and a few other specialty ammo variants such as the L191 tracer and the SB193 subsonic round were submitted to NATO for testing and evaluation.

While Germany backed their own H&K alternative which kept the 5.7 and it’s accompanying PDW/sidearm combo from being adopted as a standard NATO armament.
