I have two of the FNS-9 pistols and find them to be fine shooters and good carry guns. Ergonomically they fit the hand well, and shoot where you point them. 17rd mag w 1 in the pipe, good to go.

Never fired an FNX but I do like my FNP-9

Iíve had an FNP-40 & FNP-9M in the past; both fine guns. I currently have an FNS-9C for concealed carry and really like it. Always been a hammer gun guy; this is my first striker fired pistol. Fit & finish and realizability on all FNH firearms is top shelf.

Love mine. Probably 2k down the pipe.
Shot almost every type of round you can buy
with no problems whatsoever.

I had an FNP and it was sweet. Shoulda kept that. But I imagine the FNX would be similar

Thanks guys. I just picked up a NIB with stainless slide for $350. Couldn't go too wrong for that price.

What a steal. Youíll be happy.

BTW, a loaded FNX with 17 115 grain rounds
weighs just 1lb 15.4oz.
