NRA Names FN SLP 'Shotgun of the Year'

May 11, 2009  | 

The National Rifle Association has named FNH USA's FN SLP the "Shotgun of the Year" for 2009, the company announced.

The modular FN SLP shotgun ships with two gas pistons, for heavy and light loads, that offer its law enforcement operator more flexibility and longer life, according to the company. A variety of shotgun choke tubes and accessory sporting barrels are also available for the SLP.

The SLP is known for its nimble cycling of shells and light recoil, according to the company.

The NRA judges commented, "Based on the Browning Gold and Winchester Super-X design, the short-stroke, gas-operated semi-automatic SLP has a host of features that drew us to it, including: pistons for both heavy and light loads; a safety than can be reversed for left-handers; an 18-inch, 12-guage barrel with a 3-inch chamber and compatibility with standard invector choke tubes; an extended magazine tube; a protected front post with a white aiming dot and, in the rear, an adjustable ghost ring flanked by two white dots and mounted on a Picatinny rail; and a 1-inch thick ventilated rubber recoil pad."

The judges added, "And when it came to shooting performance, we judged the SLP to [exhibit] commendable slug accuracy, consistent pattern density with buckshot and excellent functional reliability. Handling was also noteworthy with quick cycling and minimal muzzle rise. The FN Self-Loading Police shotgun is simple, reliable and rugged, offering solid performance and a proven design."
