While watching the Cal/UNC football game today, a 30 second commercial for FNS firearms was aired. I'm wondering if anyone here has any knowledge or experience with this manufacturer.

Yes, They look nice but seem pricey to me as well. They seem to have a long and confusing history. I'd never heard of them, though I admittedly know very little about firearms.

Not John Moses specifically, but the Browning name does possibly shed a little light onto their past history.

They're a new player to the arena. Very sketchy business... mostly small fry sales. I don't think they'll be around for a year.

I had an FNX in 9MM, .40S&W, and .45ACP. All of them shot well and I liked them, but the Glock bug bit me, so I traded all of them. With that said, I would not hesitate to recommend them.

They make M4s and Some machine guns for the U.S. military also. They are a huge company that has been around for ages.

Yeah, that's why I stated they seem to have a long and confusing history. It seems they have merged or have been bought and sold numerous times. They do have some tempting items on their menu.

I have a Five SeveN and it is awesome. Only negative is ammo isn't as easy to find as other calibers.

The FN pistols are pretty reasonably priced, with the exception of the FiveSeven. They make both striker and hammer fired pistols in the popular calibers.

FN as a company goes way back. I have several of their products and their build quality and design work os very good.
