    You bought it without knowing anything about it? Am I the only one here who thinks this is a bit strange?

    I haven't read anything about the gun other than ads in magazines. Not online, not anywhere. I haven't seen one in a store or handled one. I'm guessing it is 9mm, polymer framed, with interchangeable backstrap inserts... I hope its reliable and dependable and you spent your money well. Let us know how it shoots!

    FN makes good stuff. The FN P series are supposed to be good guns. They are just not very popular. lack of marketing probably.

    9mm herstel

    I bought it brand new, friend of mine in the military has one and I have shot it with no problems its all steel and is a heavy and solid gun. It suppose to be a off spring of a browning 9mm high power. So I gave 350.00 brand new with two mags and cleaning kit. They make military 50 calibers for the army etc thats why I went for it because its solid like a military piece of equipment. Thanks I just wondered how many of them are out there......Mike

    I own an FNP 9 and it is my carry weapon. It shoots great, it is reliable & accurate. You got yourself a sweet deal and a fun gun to shoot.

    I picked up a Skyy 9mm without knowing anything about them. I wouldn't recommend that but I just couldn't pass it up. Time will tell if I got a good deal or not. As it is, it's not my carry gun and probably will not ever be.

    FN makes almost every small arm for the military, M16s, SAWs, M2s, PDWs, etc. they also make the huge rotary vulcan type belt fed machine guns for aircraft and other large vehicles. FN knows how to make superior firearms.

    I purchased a Browning two-tone (PRO-9) that was manufactured by FN Herstal for Browning about two years ago for about $500. During this same timeframe FN Herstalís FNP-9 two-tone model was available for about $75 less.

    I donít regret the purchase; Iíve enjoyed shooting the PRO-9. It has a good out-of-box DA/SA trigger. I have noticed that Browning removed it from their catalog and web site a good while back.

    PRO-9 / FNP-9 Two-Tone Differences

    I believe that I read somewhere that the PRO-9 was the civilian version, manufactured in the US by FNH, and the FNP-9 was the LEO/military equivalent and manufactured in Europe.

    Feature wise they are just about the same, except the PRO-9 safety can be applied cocked or hammer down, whereas the early FNP-9's have a decocker.

    The PRO-9 comes with a stainless or stainless finished hammer, slide takedown lever, ambi mag release, slide stop and ambi safety whereas these components on the FNP-9 are finished in black.

    The PRO-9 comes with two SS mags versus three with the FNP-9. The mags for each version have a different logo on the base, but are interchangable, which is great because the PRO-9 16-round mags are hard to find. (Browning 10-round mags seem to be readily available if your state has restrictions.)

    FN makes good stuff; but, I've never shot one so really don't know anything other than what I've read.
