TFBTV reviews the $8K FK BRNO field pistol

In this episode of TFBTV, James looks at the luxurious FK BRNO Field Pistol in 7.5mm FK. According to FK BRNO:
“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.”
TFB’s own Pete already covered the FK BRNO in full and concluded:
“The Field Pistol is probably the nicest, most unique handgun I have had the opportunity to shoot in my life. It is beautiful, functional, accurate and fits in my hands like a tailor took my measurements for custom gloves. Connecting with 100 yard targets is stupidly simple using the rear butterfly sight and dotted front blade.
With every advancement comes a price – literally/figuratively. While Luxury Firearms, FK BRNO’s exclusive importer/distributor, would like you to contact them for official pricing, current estimates rangebetween $7K-$8K. That’s a lot to ask for a handgun. The “physical” price is evident in the Field Pistol’s length and weight – at 10 inches and three pounds, it is not the largest pistol on the market, but it is a lot to hang off a belt. Ammunition pricing has yet to be officially set, but because of limited availability and uniqueness, I would guess MSRP will push the $1/round mark.
If the major barriers of size, weight and price don’t concern you, the FK BRNO Field Pistol would make quite the target, hunting or personal defense weapon.”
