FNP-9 / Browning PRO-9

| Wednesday, June 22, 2011 | 0 comments

The FNP-9 is the most recent development of the famous Belgian company FN Herstal. The FNP-9 features double-action/single-action (DA/SA) operation with a decocker. Its high-capacity polymer frame is offered in matte black. The FNP-9’s barrel is cold hammer-forged stainless steel, and the stainless steel slide is available with a matte black industrial tool finish for added durability. First announced in 2003, the basic design is available in two versions. The Law Enforcement / Military version is marketed as FNP-9, and has a matte black finish; the Civilian version is marketed as the Browning PRO-9, and has a bead-blasted stainless steel finish on the slide. Frames on all models are black polymer. These pistols apparently made at two FN facilities - for European market guns are produced at FN home factory in Herstal, Belgium; for US market guns are made in FN plant in Columbia, South Carolina, USA, by the FN Manufacturing Inc, subsidiary of the FN Herstal.

The FNP-9 is a short recoil operated, locked breech pistol. The barrel is operated using a Browning cam system, and is locked to slide by single lug via large ejection port. Frame is made from high impact-resistant polymer. Double Action trigger system with exposed hammer has internal firing pin safety, with decocking levers located at the both sides of the frame. Firing pin safety is standard, and the magazine safety is optional. The trigger / hammer module is formed as a single unit, easily detachable from the frame for inspection, maintenance or replacement.
