Default Fnp 40

I am interested in purchasing a FNP 40. I have handled one but never fired one. Anyone used/owned one and what are your opinions?

I own one and it is a fine pistol. All the same you need to put some rounds down range to see if it works for you. Hard not to like the pistol, great grip with exchangable back straps to fit the hand, great sight picture and mine came with three high capacity stainless steel mags. The FNP was my first polly frame purchase for carry. I now carry a S&W M&P 45 and sort of miss the hammer but not the snap of a .40. All the same I haven't sold my FNP 40 simply because it is a quality pistol and one I carry from time to time .

I got one for my brother...traded his 270 for it.

Sloppy slide to frame, sloppy barrel lock up, didn't like the weight, slide only locked with one of the three mags.

This was all found before I even shot it.

After shooting it, I liked how little recoil there was, it was exceptionally accurate despite all the slop. Still only locked on one of three mags.

I wouldn't own one, but would be a good starter gun.

I have heard of people having a problem with the takedown lever gouging the slide under the "P" in FNP. Have you had any expierience with this issue?

Nope, the take down releife is far in front of the lettering. I can't imagine how it would happen.

I have a Browning Pro 40 that I've had for a few years now. They're pretty much the same pistol. The Pro 40 was originally sold in the US while the FNP was elsewhere. For some reason the Browning if you can find one is a bit more expensive these days. Maybe it's the idea that you don't see many. Anyway it's the only poly frame pistol I own and I really like shooting it.

I think you will be very happy with the way the FNP shoots.

Thanks everybody for the input. If I decide to go this route I will post a picture for all to see.
