Giving the FN 5.7mm pistol the gauntlet treatment (VIDEO)

FN’s Five-seven pistol, using the same spicy bottle-necked cartridge as the P90 PDW, is neat but how does it like mud?

Tim Harmsen with the Military Arms Channel runs the polymer-framed Five-seven through his in-house Gauntlet torture test of water, sand, dirt, and muddy media to see just how durable the design is when it comes to added material in the loop.

Not to give anything away, but that gooey cake batter-like mud is a killer. However, a little water seems to be able to put it back in service.
