Don't recall seeing it come by here.
Was watching one of my favorites on YT, Taofledermaus and Officer Greg and he mentioned his own channel Officer Greg OG Danger Show so I just had to go there:

Covered a gun I haven't heard of the FK BRNO in 7.5mm


Especially for @TNTRAILERTRASH amd @undeRGRound it comes with both a 10mm and a 9mm barrel included.
Big ol' gun about the size of a JHP that spits out a .30 cal projectile from a necked down 10mm case at 2000 fpm.
Officer Greg's review is here:

It’s a EXPENSIVE semi custom gun that uses proprietary ammo to make the stat geeks drool, and then they toss in a barrel so when you run out of the ammo you can’t buy anywhere, you can still shoot the gun.

It’s been in a thread or two here.

It's a beautiful gun though, somewhat reminiscent of the Beretta 87/89

My son sent me a video on that, it's quite the HOT-ROD CALIBER I'd love to see exactly what the cost would be if I applied my "Mole's Rules" for new calibers

Extra magazines, 1000 round minimum...
Gets pretty costly!!

Thanks for the mention, @SWAGA I would have missed this...

Convert an M-1 Carbine.

I seem to know of another manufacturer that makes pretty affordable, popular and possible overbuilt PCCs that could help usher this caliber into the mainstream. That manufacturer already makes a 10mm carbine, which should make more pressure in the chamber. The caliber needs to be SAAMI spec'd first.

THE COMPANY (FK BRNO) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the famous CZ...

Awesome

The M-1 Carbine uses a cartridge that produces 38,500 psi.

According to an American Rifleman article in 2016, the 7.5 FK cartridge produces 50,570 psi.

Some particulars from that article:

So,
my suggested firearm, the M-1 Carbine is inadequate for a conversion to the 7.5 FK cartridge.

The M1 carbine isn't reliable (newer ones) or affordable.
That being said, I would still like to see what you've suggested.

That would be in more your price range. Ramsey would not approve a more expensive un-needed toy.

In addition to everything else here, Marksman TV did a worthwhile review. They brought up a very legit observed issue with either the chamber &/or the round.
