    I own one and love it, the ps90 is actually the semi version of the p90, sorry if someone already said it. Ammo really isn't too bad, I usually pay around 30-37$ per box of 50, which I feel like is about the same as shooting high quality .45 at the range, it's beyond fun, and quite practical for a slim tucked away car or truck gun

    My shooting buddy has a couple and buys ammo by the case. Lots of fun, and a very enjoyable gun to blast with.

    One thing the ps90 convinced me is I cant during shooting. My buddy was having issues getting on paper at 100 yrds (new red dot sight) so I dialed it right in. He took over and was 3" low and 2" right. We could not figure it out since I took it back and it was right on for me. Finally he noticed my slight cant and I shoot that way and never realized it. Now I work to avoid the problem. I fully credit the PS90 for teaching me that.

    What a fun gun to shoot still!

    They are pretty neat and could see them fitting very specific roles. Practically speaking, I would never own one though. As others have mentioned, somekind of traditional smg would be more practical to own. If you are just into owning something "kinda cool&different" maybe look at a Tavor.

    This is my 90/22. I love shooting this thing and the kids have a blast shooting it too...

    Thanks for posting pics of that, never seen a close of up one before.

    Props to the maker for attention to detail. From 5 feet away I wouldn't be able to tell them apart from the real ones. :)

    Fluctuate wildly with the political climate because of the 50 round capacity but currently cheap and plentiful ~$17:

    If you have any thoughts about ever buying one, grab some magazines now!


    Until you stick in a 50-round banana magazine :)

    You should see a pair of them shooting a dueling tree setup, serious fun but talk about burning money. Only thing that saves us is the mags are pretty slow to reload, but still if we bring out four pre-loaded mags each $200+ in ammo is up in smoke in no time at all! But its worth it! :)

    George, that's an LEO price ;). Much like H&K, .gov sales are given preferential treatment over civilians, even though we made FNH and broke H&K with our purchases. Not sure why an LEO with access to P90's would ever want a PS90. I suppose so they could recoup more cost after it's service by not demilling it?

    I prefer standard calibers, the five firearms I own are chambered in 22 LR, 223, 308, 30-06, and 12 gauge. That being said, I'm thinking of buying a ps90. I think it's the ultimate HD weapon; there's just nothing else that offers the ammo capacity, maneurvability, light weight, reliability, and low recoil/flash/noise for a HD weapon that would be shared with my wife.

    The mags really aren't that expensive. I have seen them go for $30 shipped for FN factory new ones. They may not be as cheap as AR mags but overall it is not terrible.

    For sure cheaper than the five-seven mags, for some reason. And there's no 10$ Korean knock-off for those, either (that might be the real reason the PS90 mags are such a low price for FNH products).

    Meanwhile, my FNAR mags are still like 80$ these days (good thing I stocked up; quite the nice return on investment, actually, and the mags themselves are awesome, too)

    I have owned 2 over the years - my first one was bought inb 2006 shortly after they came out.

    The height of their popularity has passed, unfortunately. I once was admin of the Fn Forum, and there were some really cool accessories for them a few years ago. There still are some, but some have gone away. Also, some of the variants are no longer available.

    EVerytime I get a duplicate of a gun, I end up selling one. I sold my first one a couple of years ago. With the higher Eotech and bulkiness of an aftermarket sight, it sorta took away from the point of the gun - a small, streamlined package.

    I kept my 2nd one with the factory sight until last month. The smaller glass just was bugging me. I like the larger field of view on my Mepro 21 optics I have on other guns.

    I also had a few thousand rounds of ammo stashed - but local supplies dried up for 2 years until just the past couple of months. I never shot the gun, because I never wanted to touch my stash.

    I finally just decided to sell the gun, all accessories and all my ammo last month - and, I got another 5.56 to share ammo and mags with my SCAR 16. If I had unlimited money, I may have kept it - I really thought about it for quite some time.

    But, I have a CX4 in 9mm. The PS90 was a bit more accurate - but the CX4 is about the same size. So, I let the PS90 go...

    The link I posted for $17 PS90 mags are for FN 50 round factory mags. Stock up while you can if you have any interest in ever owning one.


    Actually the real problem with the Korean PS90 mags are the springs.

    My friend broke one of his FN mags, CDNN had a deal, buy an FN PS90 mag and get a free Korean PS90 mag. Told him to buy a replacement and put the spring from the broken FN mag into the Korean mag -- worked a treat.

    The only good thing about the asian PS90 mags. Take them apart - use the end plate from it to convert your factory 30 rounder to 50 rounds. Chunk the rest of it.

    Ps90 mags used to be close to $50 each. They are much, much cheaper now.
