Hey guys.


 


I'm starting to get into the market for a possible purchase of a FN PS-90. The reason being simply, I love the P90. I think it'd be a neat little addition and a fun gun to shoot.


I've read a few reviews online, but the reviews come from people who seem overly biased towards the P90. (Some appear to be fans of the P90 and fans of FN in general) So I was kind of hoping for some other opinions on here that some people may have on the firearm before I go make such an expensive type of purchase.

PS90 is a good shooting gun. I fired someone else's gun as I do not have one of my own. I would get it myself but I wouldn't be able to use it while working.


With that said I am a fan of FNH and would use their .40 pistol if it wasn't so expensive.

For its intended purpose yes, its a great PDW....with the right ammo ( which has been banned here in the U.S.)  But as for a sporting rifle with that silly 16'' barrel.. eh.. if thats what you want.. Its cool and neat dont get me wrong.. but ammo is pricy, the mags are pricy-er, and accessories are pricy-est.  BUT If you like the P90, then a PS90 couldnt hurt. Pretty loud outa the 10'' barrel if memory serves, never shot the civilian version though.. prolly the same, just semi of course.


Everything you do can get you killed, including doing nothing at all..

its an interesting rifle for sure, just its ammo price and the fact  that i have no practical use for it are reasons why I  havent purchased one. their design and ability to hold 50 rounds are cool.

FNH is a very good gun manufacturer...they also make many other weapons besides the FN Five-Seven and the P-90.


But lets look at the PS-90...here you have a gun designed for close quarters...made to be as mobile and lightweight as possible...but to sell it to the civies, they had to slap a 16" barrel on it.


Well, it kinda defeats the purpose of the gun, you know what I mean? For that price, I'd look at another bullpup rifle (like the Styer Aug or the FS2000) than focus on the PS-90.

The Steyr AUG I have considered (Or, what is known as the STG-556 I believe on the market right now.) ( As indeed I am looking for some sort of bullpup system) And the big reason I've looked into the PS-90, the Steyr, and the FS2000 even is their tendency to be left handed friendly, I'm a southpaw shooter.


 


You can purchase or modify the PS-90 (After going through your proper legal paperwork, of course) to be an SBR. Which pulls the barrel back down to it's P-90 barrel length of I believe 10 inches.


 


Thanks a lot guys for the opinions. I'll keep my eye out for any other responses, I'm still looking for opinions, suggestions, and so on! I do not plan on purchasing a bullpup soon, I'm doing my research. So, feel free to give me any experience with a bullpup firearm. Anything to consider would be appreciated!

Look into the new Kel Tech RFB Bull Pup rifle, its a .308 and is getting some awesome reviews.

I think we have similar views....I really dont go for buying guns that I cannot see a use for workwise. Unless Im talking rilfes and shotguns for hunting use, any gun I consider buying really needs to have some sort of work use. Ive gotten so use to my service pistol, thats about 90% of my range time...shooting my service pistol.


FNH are good weapons, no doubt about it....but I think I would rather have them issued to me rather than buying.

It's great weapon and alot of fun to shoot....


I've got about 1K rounds through mine with zero malfunctions. Ammo isn't bad price wise, either.

I had one, but I sold it last year. I actually really liked it, once I got used to the ergonomics which are quite different from most long arms. The 5.7 is a pretty nasty round for it's size. It shoots great and functions extremely well. No complaints, so why did I sell it? I needed the money and I could get almost as much as I paid for it. That's basically it. Of course with ammo prices hiked up so high (if you can find it), how much am I going to shoot it? So I guess it wasn't a bad idea in the long run.

I always thought it was hilarious that they used them on Stargate SG1 for purposes that would have been far better served with other weapons. But, they do look cool.
