Super light but bulky. Very rough edges. Feels like a cheap toy. Hardly any recoil. Extreme muzzle flash: If fired in dim light, you will be blinded. Plenty accurate for anything practical. Ammo is way expensive and not suitable for reloading.
Not worth the price tag IMO. You can't buy the armor-piercing ammo anyway, which takes the controversial out of the equation.

I'm not a fan. If you're going to buy a polymer pistol, buy it for the right reasons. The Five-Seven is a gimmick weapon IMO.
The Glock series and HK USP series still rule the polymer frame world, and I don't see that changing any time soon. And yes, I am telling you that the XD(-M) and HK45 have not impressed me either."Intelligence is nothing more than discussing things with others. Limitless wisdom comes of this." - 山本 常朝
