Gun that reflects American preferences in full-size service pistols
Wiley Clapp takes American Rifleman readers on a review of FNH USA's new pistol ... the FNS
Two Guns in One? FN's FNS
The FNS will hit the mark with value-conscious shooters who demand a quality service pistol.
For more than a century, the Belgian firm of Fabrique Nationale de Armes de Guerre (FN) has been an iconic institution in the world of armsmaking. In the early days, some of those guns came from the genius of American designer John Browning, who made frequent Atlantic crossings to conduct his European business. Browning forever owns the loyalty of America for his many military models, some of which are still in active service with U.S. forces. As a matter of fact, some U.S. service firearms come from an FN facility in South Carolina.
The association of FN and the American market—military, police and sporting—remains strong. The pistol at hand is a perfect example of FN’s willingness to build guns that are specifically designed for American use. Made in the United States by an FN subsidiary called FNH USA, the pistol is known as the FNS.
