First Look: FK BRNO PSD Multi-Caliber Pistol (7.5 FK, 9mm & 10mm)

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- One of the advantages of having a network of industry people is that I sometimes hear about things before they are officially announced. Earlier this evening, I got a message from a friend that is setting up for the IWA Show in Nuremberg, Germany about a new pistol that is apparently being officially announced tomorrow when the show opens. Obviously, I asked for a picture… so, here’s what I got and what I’ve heard.

The world was fascinated by the FK Brno Field Pistol when it was first announced.  A new cartridge, and uncommon recoil system made the gun stand out along with unconventional looks and some exciting claims.  To pull some text from FK Brno’s website:

“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 15 – 35 mm long rounds, the smallest hands are 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.”

Early shots of the FK Brno PSD

The original Field Pistol, however, was not received all that well in the US consumer market for two major reasons.  A proprietary cartridge and a price tag that rivaled some decent used cars.  With the help of some consulting FK Brno has produced a new model known as the “PSD” perhaps standing for Personal Security Detachment.  The PSD is rumored to have an MSRP around $2,000, a polymer frame, and the ability to change calibers with an initial launch in 7.5FK, 9mm and 10mm!  Security detachments and general consumers alike can retain the ability to use the powerful 7.5FK round, but also be able to train with and use common 9mm and 10mm ammunition.

Specifications as we know so far:

  • Frame: Reinforced Fiberglass Technopolymer
  • Action: Single Action
  • Length: 9.17″
  • Height: 5.3″ without sight, 5.75″ with sight.  Slides milled for reflex sights.
  • Barrel Length: 5.3″
  • Weight: 38.8 oz
  • Magazine Capacity: varies by caliber, 9mm is 17 rounds.

If this pistol comes to market it stands a much better chance of wider acceptance.  Although still far from a budget pistol, the lower price is a lot more palatable.  Combine the lower price tag with the ability to use commonly available ammunition and the new PSD sounds like it actually has a chance in the US market.  Time will tell if it will hit the US market, and what the final specifications will actually be.  The 7.5FK from the longer-barreled Field Pistol claims to throw a 95gr or 98gr projectile at 2000fps resulting in muzzle energy of 880ft/lbs.  Velocity and energy for the 5.3″ barrel is unknown at the time of this writing.

Watch for more information at the FK Brno website.

mucho dinero for a teensy bit of improvement
personally have a number of carry options available……
tho depending on the conditions… the ability to utilize acquired ammo with a one minute barrel change……
In real world tho I cannot see much justification for such a system, other than gimme I want one

Yea……, No, anyone who would buy a 2k polymer pistol has mental issues. The steel should cost that and the poly should be no more than 6 to 7 Franklins. I would hate to be the person who financed this fools errand. That loan officer better have secured a lot of collateral.

You could buy an excellent model of each caliber and have money left over.

I’ll wait for a knock off in 7.5 from another company. Maybe someone will adapt a 1911 to it.

Lets see if this guy jumps on you like he did me back when Ammoland announced the $7500 pistol. I commented something like you did about it being way too expensive and he replied several times and provoked an argument. I wouldn’t buy one of his guns if he was the last outlet on earth.

Glock 22 $499.00
Wolf conversion barrel $149.00
3 Glock 17 Mags $75.00
Now you have the most reliable platform in 9mm and .40 for less that $700.00 easy.

Does the $2k price include more than one caliber barrel and magazine? If not, how much will they be asking for their caliber conversion kits?
