A one time the FN rifle was the main battle rifle for 90 countries. those seemed to have alot of magazine and feeding problems. I knew where there was an FN for sale with 2 mags but the guy wants $900 for it and it was in really tough shape.

I wouldn't mind hearing a little about the FN pistol, if you can find the time.

You mean the company J.M. Browning went to after Colt and the other US folks got stupid, and where he made his Hi Power pistol? The company that made a BETTER Garand, called the FN-49, before WW2...but got run out of France, and only got to produce it after WW2? The company that was licensed to make Mausers before WW2, and made them as good or better than the Germans? The company that makes guns for half the worlds militaries, including ours?

Never heard of them. :whistle:

That was one point of the conversation Ajole.

If you mention them in a military aspect (or in a pop culture aspect) they are well know or at least familiar.
Yet somehow their pistols have evaded the "Tupperware" tag that most polymer pistol have laid on them.
We were talking about whether or not that had to do with the number of people that knew about their line of pistols.

Not that it matters much, just idle curiosity.

I think they evade the "Tupperware" label by pricing the CRAP out of their polymer guns, making them obviously superior to Glocks and any other lesser poly framed gun. :laugh:

It's the same reason Sigma's are SO much better than a JCP. ;)

And yes, everyone...this is sarcasm. :yes2:

Well I paid $400.79 OTD for mine. 10 bucks less than the XD9 at the other end of the table.
Of course this is the FNP and not the FNx which is running about 600 right now.

:thinkin: I was not supposed to buy the pistol until I unloaded my P-95 and my P-11.
However, I just could not walk away from such a good deal. :stupid:
