U.S. distributor Luxury Firearms has announced that the Czech-made FK Brno 7.5 Field Pistol is now shipping in the United States.
Designed primarily for long-range competitions, silhouette shooting and hunting, the FK Brno 7.5 Field Pistol is a single action handgun with a tilting barrel type mechanism and a proprietary recoil attenuating system. The gun features a six-inch barrel and measures 10.25 inches in overall length. Additionally, it weighs 2.8 pounds.

The FK Brno 7.5 Field Pistol is chambered in the proprietary 7.5 FK cartridge. Here’s what Luxury Firearms—which manufactures the ammunition—says about it:

According to the press release, Luxury Firearms CEO Tony Mussatto has spent the past four years working on bringing the FK Brno 7.5 Field Pistol to the U.S. market:
This firearm was never intended to be sold in the United States, but after many conversations with the creator of the weapon, Mussatto was invited to the FK facility in Brno, a small city in the Czech Republic.
“I was fortunate enough to be the first American to shoot this amazing pistol, said Mussatto. “Just after two shots from 100 meters and off hand I heard the ping of the target down range. With all my experiences with firearms, hitting a target at 100 meters one handed has to be at the top of my list. I was also allowed to attach the shoulder stock and at 100 meters, I could not miss. One must experience and allow this gun to perform as intended to fully understand how unique of a firearms this is. So I knew immediately this was something I wanted to help other American shooters experience.”
Over the last two years of hard work, countless emails and phone conversations, numerous on-site visits with the creator, Mussatto now has the first shipment of FK Brno 7.5 Field Pistols in his warehouse.
The FK Brno 7.5 Field Pistol is available in two models: Standard Field Pistol and Combat Sport. The gun is priced at $7,500. See the specs below. For more, go to luxuryfirearms.com.
