[h/t You Know Who You Are] RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Gun That Never Went On Duty: AMT’s On Duty Pistol Gun Review: SIG SAUER P320 AXG Scorpion 9mm Pistol GLOCK’s Forgotten Six Inchers 107 COMMENTS Crap. Coffee all over my desk Reply What the holy hell am I looking at!? How the hell did they even get an HK slide on an FN frame…. And how do you get it off again? That’ll be the fun part. Getting the slide back off. Reply BFH. Reply Polymer frame + BFH…. sounds scary to me. Reply I prefer BMFH, but that’s just my tool box. Reply No answers, man. But if you spend enough time in a gun shop you learn to stop asking and just tell them they’re stupid. Reply Are we both armed Linux peeps, or did you “borrow” my av? Reply The zeroeth law of gun safety: RTFM. Reply Those actually fit together? Wow Reply I’d say they’re damned lucky it didn’t work… Reply Ding. Winnah! Reply I confess I don’t really know my guns but I see an H&K logo on the slide and what looks like an FN logo on the grip. So, I’m going with it having to do with that. Reply That’s the FN 5.7 frame, HK USP 45 slide… My question – what barrel was in it? Reply Had to be the 45 barrel. The 5.7 barrel would not lock up… Locked up… thats how you describe this. Reply Remember now, it didn’t work. Maybe NO barrel?! locked up is how id punish this That is an HK USP 45 slide on an FN Five Seven frame. Reply I’m looking at this on my phone so it’s kind of hard to tell, but is that an H&K slide on an FN frame? Reply It is and I am trying to figure out how the hell they did that. Reply Wait. USPs are Hammer fired…. Aren’t Five Sevens striker fired? I cant figure out how they did that either. And I once got a Glock 21 slide on a Glock 30. And back off again. On purpose. Reply FN FiveseveN’s are hammer fired, it’s just concealed. They are single-action. Yeah, you CLAIM it was on purpose! Well, when an FN and an HK love each other very much…. You carry it in a Crossbreed Holster? Reply HA!! +1000 for the “Crossbreed” comment Reply Winner of the Internets for the day! Thanks for the laugh! Reply Yup, bullseye! Reply … or are both very drunk. Reply That’s very good. Reply Best comment of the week, and it’s only Monday! Reply +1 Reply Spot ON! Reply +.45 Reply Thanks everyone, it’s Monday and I’m fully caffeinated – I can’t promise witticism like this by Friday! Reply Points! Reply I would say an “Inbred Holster”. That gene pool needs some chlorine!!! Reply ^ THIS! Reply I thought it actually looked really good! I did just lose Pepsi over the counter. My coworkers are very confused. Reply It is a pretty good looking gun… Reply The new FK Five-USPN, chambered in the new proprietary 45.7 caliber. MSRP – $3499.95 Reply PR WIRE: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (5/19/14) HK and FN Announce new small-arms global venture. The co-branded company, FKHN (pronounced “Fuh-Kin”) Will produce high-level small arms for Military and LEO around the world. Their initial pistol, the FKHN .45, will surpass all other current .45 platforms in both price, maintenance, and stature among firearm users. Reply ROFLMAO!! Reply The WINNER!!!! Reply Golden. Reply FKHN awesome! Reply Aaaaand we can all go home now, we have a winner. Reply Because you suck, and we hate you. Reply So now their unofficial slogan becomes “Because we FKHN hate you, and you suck.” Reply Think your missing a zero in there Reply Winner! LOL! Reply More correctly, isn’t that the 45.7mm caliber? Reply What’s more, it’s a .45 slide on a 5.7 frame. Throw a .9mm barrel in there and Bob’s your uncle. Reply How about a 45 cal. barrel that’s only been bored out to 9MM at the muzzle? Firing it could be a life changing event! Reply I don’t think you get the joke. Reply I don’t think _I_ get the joke. How can a .45 barrel be “bored out to 9mm” when, if my arithmetic is accurate, 9 mm is only about .354″? Isn’t a .45 already .45″? I know I’m practically a gun virgin, but come on! As to how gun-naive I am, I didn’t even spot the different logos; I was looking at all the levers and buttons and gewgaws and gimcracks alongside the rail. Same here. My first reaction was “The safety’s on.” First off he did not say “9mm”, he said “.9mm”, which should clear things up since it makes everything possible. “Boring out at the muzzle” refers to standard interactions between guns from differing makers, reviewed over and over until we’re so bored out we want to eat the muzzle. Even the famed .9mm muzzle. Reply More like Bob’s your Aunt Sally. Reply This made me laugh more than it should have. Bravo. Reply True story. Customer has a GLOCK chambered in .45 GAP, .45 ACP ammo, and a G17 magazine. His “new to him” gun wouldn’t work…… Reply Looking at that picture actually made my head hurt. Reply Those are 2 high end guns to possible screw up…. Reply What sorcery is this? Reply That’s exactly what it must be. Reply I think it looks kinda cool lol. Reply Is it sad or good that I picked up on the mismatch by noticing the mag release wasn’t an HK one before I noticed the FNH logo? Reply I noticed the parts LONG before I noticed the logos as well. Reply I’d say “good”. Many firearms types/brands have a key like that; years ago, I used to be able to ID the vast majority of shotgun brands by looking at the mag tube cap. Reply I didn’t notice either, looked fine to me. Shows how much *I* know! Reply When he walked into the LGS was he pointing the gun sideways, you know …thug/gangsta style? Reply Kinda cool, but I doubt that that’s functional. Crossbreed holsters…Funny! I think that the coolest combo would be a USP slide on a Walther P99 frame. Hah…Crossbreed…Just can’t stop laughing about that! Reply Hahahahahaha I wonder if he got it on craigslist? Reply has no magazine Reply The Kimber single stack magazine would not fit Reply How did he get that together? Did he follow the old mantra of “if it doesn’t work, force it?” LOL Good Lord… Reply Now, that just isn’t fair, I had my coffee just the way I like it (in my cup!), now, it’s not. How’d he (or they) get the slide on there? Maybe a better question now, how do they get it off? That is just insane. Reply Talk about the double take of a lifetime! I remember when Glock sued S&W over the Sigma line in the ’90’s. There was an article in one of the magazines (I believe Guns & Ammo probably around 1997 or 1998) on the similarities of the two weapons. The author was actually able to swap slides and the guns worked perfectly. That being said, I think this guy missed the mark . . . (On a flip note, it does look cool!!!) Reply The last time Germany invaded Belgium it looked something like this too. Reply Holy FrankenPistol! I cocked my head sideways to take in what was going on there, I must have looked like a dog captivated by a piece of bacon. Reply Teutonic rune magic Reply Haha… I could write a book on some of things I have seen come through our doors at http://www.shootersplus.com/. One that stands out the most is a guy that brought in a really nice “expensive” turkey hunting shotgun and couldn’t figure out why he wasn’t even on the paper when sighting it in. A quick look down the barrel and it was painfully obvious the barrel was bent. A couple questions later we find out that when riding his fourwheeler to his hunting spot he hit on a low hanging tree limb! Reply Nevah been dun befoh…. Reply Now that’s just funny. Reply I suspect this abomination was constructed for fun in the gun shop (we do screwy things at my LGS all the time). Otherwise this is inexplicable unless the owner keeps random gun parts in a box and assembles them into a gun as needed. How else could this have happened? Another take: You got FN in my HK! No! You got HK in my FN! One more: Somewhere there is a guy with an FN slide on an HK frame wondering what the hell happened. Reply What happened was the inevitable consequence of colon carry in condition tactical butterscotch for both your primary and BUG. Reply Sooo who would we send this to to fix? Reply Hi point? They never ask questions nor pass judgement. Reply Send it home to Mother! Hee hee hee! 😀 Reply I thought guns without magazines weren’t very dangerous, and really don’t ‘work’. Reply Now if I can just get my 1911 slide on a Beretta 92 receiver. Would go well with a bullpup levergun. Reply bullpup levergun. Now, THAT causes a mind picture that hurts. Reply That’s a very expensive paperweight if the slide can’t be removed! Reply …The fuck? That actually looks pretty sharp. Reply photoshop for the win! Reply Clearly all that is wrong is that the takedown pin has not been properly reinserted. Reply That’s simply because they did not have a big enough sledge hammer. Reply Those magicians at Sons of Guns can do ANYTHING! Reply Who has money for guns that expensive but has the firearms know ledge of a politician!? The weird thing is it almost looks like it fits. Reply …How did he even do that!? Reply Wow. Just – wow. I’m thinking that had it worked at all, it should have been as a grenade with a 2 millisecond delay; glad it didn’t. Maybe FPS Россиа can figure out how to get it apart again…? Reply Not nearly as short on money as brains Reply 1st thought: Wat? 2nd thought: Even this is prettier than a glock. Reply Yeah, I’ll admit it looked weird with the slide/frame mismatch but it was the “no magazine” aspect that really jumped out at me. I thought I might have been concentrating on the “too obvious” for a while…but thinking about how this guy even attempted to chamber a round to discover it didn’t work without a magazine scares me. Reply Assuming you can get it stripped all that is needed is the completed slide for the FN and the frame for the H&K Reply Probably the new Taurus, they just make copies of S&Ws and Berretta’s . Imagine how much it would cost. Reply Ah… the new FN Forty Five Seven, got to get me one. Reply STILL a better love story than “Twilight.” Reply I’m wondering exactly what he tries to put in it to find out it didnt work. 5.7? .45acp? 9mm? Screw it. Force an AK mag into the well and call it a day. Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address!
