Earlier today I received an email from the executive manager of FK BRNO. Mr. Slabke informed me that the ATF had just approved the immediate importation of their 7.5 Field Pistol into the USA. We should see these pistols on store shelves when enough arrive at the distributor.
TFB previously posted an article about this new pistol you may want to look over at 7.5 BRNO
The purpose of this pistol is long range competition target shooting or small to medium game hunting. The 7.5 round travels at 2000 fps with 880 fp of energy. Now that is really moving for a pistol round of that size. From the photos it appears to be a well made handsome pistol that should create a good deal of interest here in the USA.
The 7,5 FK is a completely new proprietary cartridge caliber. The case is 27 mm long, the total length of the cartridge is 35 mm, and the head diameter of the case is 10,8 mm. This caliber is not a necked down version of any other caliber. The case is designed to withstand higher pressures than is usually used in pistol calibers.
This cartridge will not fit in any magazine, nor will it function in any current production model pistol.
In the email we were invited to have a pistol sent to TFB for our testing here. I will certainly follow up and have one reviewed by one of our writers. It should prove to be very interesting. Now we have no word as yet on cost of the pistol or it’s proprietary ammunition.
The 7,5 FK Field pistol is a single action, tilting barrel type mechanism, with a proprietary recoil attenuating system. This is not a modified design of another product or pistol model. This is a completely new and unique concept and design, and the intellectual rights to the system have been registered and claimed by FK Brno. The Design is very Ergonomic, and even though the magazine holds 14, 35 mm long rounds, the smallest hands will be able to fully wrap around the optimally angled grip of the pistol. The frame and slide are very slender and streamlined for such a size cartridge and caliber.
The pistol is made entirely by machining using an array of specialty high strength alloys and multiple controlled heat treatment methods and processes that are usually used on very large caliber high pressure firearms. It is produced to the highest standards in the industry.
