Does anyone have experience
Does anyone know what brand of ammo the gun likes or dislike? (I know certain ammo fails to fire, eject or function properly in ceratain firearms).
What about accuracey?
I've been on their web site.
Thanks for any intel you can provide.
I've got a FN Five-seveN
We decided to get S&W M&P 40 for duty guns. We do use P-90's for tactical work and love them.
I have used the FNs and love them, I got issued the USACOM Mk23 in 06 and glad my hands are as big as they are or I would have had to go back to the M-9.
Usning Mil Ball, never had a problem with them and shot 1,000's or rounds with them. Was glad to have the big ol' .45 in the litterbox.
I bought the FNX-9 as my first home defence gun because of the ambidexter

dont know about the 9mm but the 40smith version is a GREAT rig - The only reason I wear a S/A XD is it proved as reliable & accurate for a few bucks less $$$$$
Not even remotely relevant / but the best FACTORY rifle I have ever owned was an FN SPR A1 308Win....
I just purchased a FNX-40 and wow it was a great deal. From what I have heard FNH has pretty good customer service.
With the FNX they did fix the backstrap issue from what I know.
First thing I noticed when I picked the thing up at a gun show was the grip that was on it just felt right, my dads XDM felt alright but the FNX just felt so much better.
As for the sights(at least on mine) they do take a little getting used to. I keep shooting low but I think I was using the wrong sight alingment.
When I first used my dads XDM the recoil felt controllable for the most part but you sometimes got the feeling of the snappiness of the recoil may throw you off a little. With the FNX-40 I did have recoil and it was comparable to the XDM-9(This was the Compact edition as well)
A bonus to the FNX series is that it comes already packed with three magazines(At least mine did) which was a great thing when mags cost from $25 to $35 a piece. I bought my FNX-40 for $600 and only put a little over a hundred rounds through it but I do like it so far.
