FNH FNS-9 Five Inch

On the table, at the FN range, was an unassuming bitone striker-fired pistol. On closer inspection it became obvious it was not the competition model while still maintaining a longer slide. This is FN’s new standard FNS-9 with a five inch barrel.

The firearm functioned without a problem and the trigger was decent. What really makes this version of the FNS special, is the complete lack of a manual safety. This is what many FN users have been waiting for.

      The competition model has special sights to extend the sight radius, and
      from the photos, the competition model promos all show a manual safety.
