The big Czech that may or may not be coming to our shores
In 2015, FK BRNO introduced their proprietary 7,5 FK cartridge/pistol combo, which is a very spicy 7.5x27mm pill on a very Bren Ten looking CZ75ish double-action semi-auto handgun with a few lessons borrowed from the FN Hi-Power. The bottle-necked 7.5×27 FK round, according to BRNO had been through some 150,000 test fires, and delivers about twice the energy as a 9mm NATO round out to (an optimistic) 100 yards with an optional buttstock attachment.
Shown off at the recent IWA Outdoor Classics trade show in Germany, the 7,5 pistol is a big boy, with a six-inch barrel and 46-ounce weight, or about the same as the old AMT Hardballer longslide 10mm, though with very Central European styling. Best yet, it has a 14+1 inch double stack mag on the beast.
It looks good for hunting (feral hogs come to mind, a task I use my own Glock 20 for), or as an offensive operations handgun such as the HK Mark 23 .45ACP (SOCOM)– though for such use you would want it to be suppressed which would be a challenge due to the high velo of the FK round.
Word on the street it that it is looking to be imported to the U.S. through a Florida-based company as well as to Canada, price TBD, but expected to be a lot.
