Picked up my FNX-9 from the transferring FFL today. I purchased it on Gunbroker from Tanner Sports for $499.00 plus shipping. It was the best price I had found and they provided quick and professional service.
I got the all black model because I'm cheap and it's not a BBQ gun or anything.
Didn't get a chance to shoot it as a thunderstorm rolled in, but I'll shoot it tomorrow. Luckily, I have a range in my backyard.
As I was researching this gun I found some people had concerns:
(1) about the silver mags appearance - mine are blackened stainless.
(2)the magazine wouldn't seat unless you pushed forward on it - I don't have that issue as the mags seat fine just pushing straight up.
(3) the gap between the "mainspring housing" and frame - mine does have that as well but I don't think it will pose any problems.
(4) the gun being too big or too thick to use as a CCW - I compared it's thickness to my Witness .45 ACP Compact - it is wider through the safety/decocker but the grips are comparable, the FNX may even be thinner. It feels thinner to me. Its a bit taller and just a hair longer but I think it should carry just fine.
(5) the gun being too heavy with a full load of ammo - I weighed it with a full 17 round mag and it came in at 31 ounces (the same as a loaded S&W 39 and 9 ounces lighter than my Witness with 8 rounds).
I'm looking forward to running a few rounds through it tomorrow and will post my impressions.
Of course I'll add a little amature gun porn.
