Free Ammo promotion from FN Herstal

I just heard about this promotion from FN, mostly because it was on the back of some gun rag I was reading at lunch.   If you buy a new FN FiveSeveN before March 31st of this year, they’ll give you 200 rounds of ammo for your gun at no cost.  The program details are on the PDF I linked to.

Now, I don’t know if you’ve got $900 to toss around on guns, but it does seem like FN is making a drive to market the Five-SeveN to the civilian sector here.  Their latest add for it really drives the civilian component home, and you can’t really argue with free ammo.

I’ve wanted one of these for so long, it’s not even funny.  I’m going to go home and look to see if I have any guns in my safe I’d be willing to part with to round up the scratch to buy a spanking new Five-SeveN.  I probably won’t get one, but it’s worth investigating.

But hey, if you’re thinking about buying one anyway, do it now and get free ammo.

  1. That’s a REALLY good idea. Seeing as 5.7X28mm is both tough to find, and expensive. Personally I’d rather shoot a .22 or a REAL calibur.

    They gonna make a deal with me for one of thems new FNP.45s?

    Those look nice!

  2. Nice promotional idea. What I’ve always thought FN should do to increase civilian sales is make a five-seven compact. We all know that nobody’s going to use it as a primary in America, but it’d make an excellent backup gun. Make one small enough to fit in an ankle holster and I think it would make a worthy competitor for the chief’s special and mini glocks among police officers. What do you guys think?

    I’m not terribly interested in the Five-SeveN, but I’ve wanted a P90 for a couple of years now… the reason I haven’t picked one up (besides wanting other firearms more) is because the ammo is a pain to find and is bloody expensive when you can find it.

    Does anyone other than FN make a firearm chambered for 5.7x28mm?

  4. Not that I know of, no. That’s actually one of the problems with the 5.7mm is that no one else chambers guns for it. It’s really too bad, especially in light of the fact that it would make a great mid-range varmint round.

  6. Tough to find? Bass Pro has piles of the stuff in stock, as well as carrying the associated gun.
