If any handgun cartridge has seen significant growth lately, it’s 5.7x28mm. For those who are fans of the cartridge—and of FN America’s Five-seveN handgun—there’s a new silencing option available. B&T USA has launched a new product, the Five-SeveN Suppressor and Barrel Kit. The kit includes both the barrel and suppressor and is specifically made for FN’s Five-SeveN handgun.
Jon Scott, Vice President of Sales at B&T USA, had the following to say regarding the company’s newest offering: “With the recent resurgence in popularity of the 5.7x28mm cartridge, we’re excited to introduce B&T’s sound suppressor and barrel kit designed specifically to work with FN America’s Five-seveN handgun. In order to make this project work, and uphold the quality B&T is known for, we partnered with Jarvis Inc. who custom made a high-quality, match-grade, 10x1mm threaded barrel to our specific specifications. This barrel and suppressor combination matches the look, feel and reliability of FN America’s Five-seveN pistol, while extracting all the performance potential out of the gun and cartridge — all in a package that’s a whole lot quieter.”
This B&T USA thread-on suppressor is made for specific use with the FN Five-seveN Pistol. According to the manufacturer, they are the OEM suppressor manufacture FN prefers in Europe.

B&T’s suppressors have a reputation among many industry professionals for being high-quality and technologically advanced. They’re designed to be rugged enough to withstand rough environmental conditions and high rates of fire. Durability and longevity are vital for suppressors. When you’re choosing a suppressor for your handgun, quality matters, and B&T strives to design and manufacture products that stand the test of hard use.
The B&T threaded barrel is designed for use with the Five-seveN model suppressor. It’s manufactured using gun barrel certified chrome moly steel that’s been heat-treated to 40-44RC. The combination of the steel and heat treatment process is meant to give the barrel superior strength and durability. Having the barrel available as part of a suppressor kit means you don’t have to search for the right barrel to go with your new can; B&T USA did the work for you.
