FNH USA introduced the holster-size 303P less lethal pistol, as a complement to its carbine-size 303 less lethal launcher at SHOT Show 2010.
With a six-shot capacity and an effective range of up to 25 meters, the new FN 303P less lethal pistol offers both military and law enforcement operators an "accurate and reliable option when the situation calls for gaining control of non-compliant individuals or small groups without resorting to lethal force," according to the company.
The FN 303P uses a disposable compressed CO2 gas capsule contained within the six-shot detachable magazine to launch its .68-caliber projectile.
It offers a manual safety, alloy barrel and upper frame, stainless steel firing engine, and comes with both fixed iron and laser sights. When it arrives later this year, it will come with one magazine and a lockable hard case.
A variety of less-lethal capsules are available, including a new marking/training round.
FNH USA also introduced the FNX-9 and FNX-40 pistols first reported by POLICE Magazine in November.
