FNH USA Brings New Handgun Trio in 2010

November 17, 2009  | 

FNH USA will introduce the FNX 9 compact pistol as a duty option in 2010, along with two other new handguns.

FNH USA will introduce a pair of polymer-frame pistols and a .45-caliber tactical pistol in 2010, the company announced.

"Our goal for 2010 is to perfect and enhance the strong products we have in our firearms line and roll out our new line of handguns," said Ken Pfau, FNH USA's VP for law enforcement and commercial sales.

The new FNX 9 and FNX 40 pistols offer new ergonomic polymer frames with a low-bore axis for flat shooting and less recoil for improved control. Checkered grip panels should reduce slippage during shooting. Also included are four interchangeable backstrap inserts to customize fit and feel. The pistols allow fully ambidextrous operating controls.

The profiled stainless steel slide has cocking serrations in the front and rear, and a 4-inch hammer-forged stainless barrel delivers long life and pinpoint accuracy. The guns arrive with a decocker and manual safety.

Originally developed for the U.S. Joint Combat Pistol Program and intended for field operations, the FNP-45 Tactical offers standard FNP-45 ACP performance with additional features. The 5.3-inch stainless steel barrel has a threaded muzzle to accept a sound suppressor or compensator.

The new FDE stainless steel slide is fitted with high-profile combat night sights and includes two mounting bases to accept an optional red-dot electronic sight. Each FNP-45 Tactical comes with three 15-round magazines and an Eagle tactical soft case.

FNH USA has also added features to the single-action, auto-loading Five-SeveN. The pistol now comes with the option of adjustable target sights or fixed three-dot sights. It is available in olive-drab green, matte black or flat dark-earth finishes. It fires the low recoil 5.7 x 82mm cartridge recently approved by the NRA Law Enforcement Activities Division for use in its Tactical Police Competition.

The pistol also features a textured, polymer frame with checkered panels for a secure grip. The polymer slide cover helps reduce weight and the operating controls are placed for easy access with a reversible magazine release and ambidextrous manual safety levers. The barrel is hammer-forged and chrome-lined to extend service life.

I know this is 2014, but I just bought my FNX-40 about 5 months ago. This gun has everything I think a handgun should have.

I learned to use a safety in the USMC and the safety on the FNX is awesome. The safety lever is located right where it should be, on the frame, right next to my thumb. It is easy to swipe on or off, de-cock and lock.

I wanted a 4" barrel to test my reloads and the FNX is perfect. The cold hammered SS barrel is perfect.

I wanted a hammer in case my reloads need a second strike. The FNX-40 has it all.

The size is right for me to carry concealed in my IWB White Hat holster.

The gun is accurate and helping me improve. With over 2,000 reloads I have never had a failure to fire, extract, or chamber. I have used the hammer for a few double strikes and each round fired on the second strike.

In short, the FNX has everything a Glock has, except reputation, and more, reliability, ergonomics, quality, and safety. Of the pistols I own, the FNX is my favorite.

I know some years have passed since your mediocre to poor rating on tje FNX, but I must say I was trained in point and shoot blacked oit sigjts.....muscle memory. And my new FNX came with factoy Trigicon Night Sights installed. Love this weapon from the git-go. Comes with 4 interchangeable back straps and the medium fits great
Couldn't be happier. Excellent work FNH! Oh and the night sights come standard on the FNS as well. Dependimg on which model you choose to purchade. So you could easily buy the ambidextrous FNX with de-cocker/safety for your entire deptartment with or without night sights standard. Also, gotta love the fact that it comes with 3 mags at 17 round capacity too. All this weapon does is mske that center mass "X", head and chest get bigger and bigger. For the features and the money, the FNX will give all the competition a run for the top spot. My Sig M11A1 doesn't shoot this well and it has no accessory rail.
