    I was watching the news last night and a gang banger was carrying a FN 57? The police interviewed said that the rounds fired were "Hyper-Shock 5.7 X 28 mm" and could penetrate kevlar body armour! Can anyone tell me more about this gun and particular cartridge?

    The FN Five-SeveN pistol was originally a companion for FN's PDW, the full auto P90. The armor piercing ammo has never been available to civilians.

    There's a good write-up at the site above.
