    Anybody have first hand FNH experience?

    I'm still learning my way around the "inventory". I keep seeing FNH guns and they look and feel very nice. When I checked out their web site they seemed pretty legit.

    Anybody have first hand experience with any of their guns?

    Thanks.

    I've shot a couple FNPs and one FNS, wasn't too thrilled with the FNS, t was an earlier gun and the trigger was pretty bad.

    The FNPs I've shot have been ok., this have been 9s and 40s.

    I was impressed with their M4, M249, M240B, and MK 19. I fired their AT4 once, but I don't have enough experience to compare it to other recoilless rifles.

    I have a FNP40, had it since 2009, well made gun.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    I have had an FNP 9 for a few years. Great gun, well made.
    I have never had a single issue with it, pull the trigger it goes bang. I shoot it as well as any gun I own. image.jpg

    I had an FNP9 for a short while. It never worked right, sent it in and they did not have the parts to fix it . They sent and FNX9 as a replacement, which was a great gesture on their part.

    Of everything I've ever fired the MK19 is by far my favorite... kathunk, kathunk, kathunk, kathunk....... splash, splash, splash, splash. There's nothing like it!

    Just bought FNX-9. I chose because of ambidextrous features. Chose over a Glock because it just felt better. Gun shop owner gave a great recommendation. Only negative is it is impossible to fully load 17 rounds in the magazines without a magazine loader, which I intend to buy.
    Love God, family, USA, and Texas.

    My brother owns an FNP40 with a little less than 1000 rounds through it. No failures of any kind. He loves it and I've enjoyed it any time I've had a chance to take it for a spin.

    FNP .45 is my number one choice for HD. Accurate and reliable is how I rate mine.

    Thanks guys. I appreciate the feedback. I don't know why but every time I hit a shop some FN jumps out at me.

    I have an FNX-9. About 800 rounds, no problems. I, too, got mine because of the ambi features, since I am a lefty. My FNX has more recoil than my Beretta PX4C, but less than most Glocks. Very accurate firearm. The front dot is larger than the rear dots, which seems to make it easier to bring on target. The FNX replaced the FNP. The FNX and the FNP are hammer fired pistols, while the FNS is the striker fired version of the FNH pistol line.

    As far as FNH goes, they are among the largest suppliers of rifles to the U.S. government. You would not be buying trouble if you decided to get an FNX

    I bought my FNX9 new about a year ago. I'm a lefty. Love it. While it is sort of tough to load all 17 rounds, I've figured out how to do it pretty easily without a loader.
