    Your Thoughts on FNP9?

    Is it still a viable option? Can i get parts for it? Found one with 7 mags and night sights for $400. Should i buy it or buy a fnx with standard sights 3 mags for 500-550? Is there that big of a difference.

    Depends on the condition. The 4 extra mags with the FNP may well make the difference. 4 extra mags for the FNX would cost you about $180, so you could look at it that you are only spending $220 for the FNP.

    The big difference between the two guns is an additional backstrap with the FNX, plus a difference in the safety. I had an FNX-9, and it was a great gun; very accurate once I got used to the combat sights, and the 18 round capacity was good. My FNX was very reliable and cycled everything I put in it with no problems. The only reason for getting rid of it was that I got almost as much as I spent for it (after 1,000 rounds), and replaced it with the HK I told myself I just HAD to have.

    I assume the FNP you are looking at is used? What condition is it in? Why is the owner selling?

    watch the youtube video by nutnfancy called "a sig for less" he does a review on the FNP9. His video is the reason i bought my FNX .40, slightly updated version of the FNP .40 but my FN is one of 2 handguns i own, and i own a few, that has yet to fail me.

    good luck.

    anybody hear about this? Apparently the control group housing is prone to crack if you have the old style (the one on the right with the notch in it) FN changed the design to one with NO notch.

    Mine has the notch and i fear it will break in the future. I called FN and they wont replace it unless it is broke and even then ill have to pay $80 bucks to ship it to them. Not sure if its worth keeping my gun
