FNH-FNS-9mm JAM-A-MATIC




What do you think about this video?

Marc White: could you be more pacific

bmarks100: A couple possibilities to consider: as many have already mentioned, the ammo could very well have something to do with your mis-feeding (and slide not locking back). But it's not uncommon for new magazines to cause some issues as well, due to being too stiff. I ran into that with my PPQ when I first got it two years ago, but after a couple of weeks leaving them loaded, I've not had a jam since (close to 3,000 rounds). Thanks for sharing your experience!

Stu S.: Clean/lube the thing & hold on like you got a pair. You will get what your looking for - A first class shooter. 99.9% of the time I see a FN pistol FTF or FTF, the problem is out of spec ammo, a dirty pistol or the shooter has a limp grip.

ruststar: You do know that PMC stand for Pretty Much Crap don't you.

Buzz Jonson: wow, I have had mine for over a year with about 4000rds and only a few the first 100rds. Has is gotten any better ?

jagd1305: I dumped my Glock 19 for the FNS 9. I haven't had a jam yet and I've been feeding it factory FMJ's, HP's and reloads. Outstanding firearm!

Charlie Ivester: But really they did have a trigger update in the first few they made. May need to check into that depending on when it was made. 

Rich Harris: Cheap ammo is to blame for your problems sir. I have shot over 2600 rounds through my fns9. The only time it has ever failed to feed is when I used cheap target ammo, And that was when the pistol was fairly new. This is a bad review of a great gun.

steven mckinsey: I have never had a problem with my fnp firearms..I have almost every model .. One trick to do is polish the feed ramp and barrel... If that don't work the change ammo 

DzR1591: Ive shot over 400 rounds through mine and haven't had any problems with it. I Always clean it after each arrangement at the range. Tulammo and other plinking ammo works fantastic through my barrel and ejects just how it's supposed too..... I would trust my life and my families life to this gun as my edc And Im note thinking sky cerakoting my entire fns 9.... Comes with 3 magazines and interchangeable back straps... Gun lock and optionak safties. Which can be taken off during field stripping with the proper procedures.... Perfect gun for the range and protection on a daily basis... Your always suppose to field strip the gun and clean it after your receive your gun in the box case. And make sure that the gun has lubricants and oils in the barrel and ramps after field stripping it and cleaning it properly... 

Charlie Ivester: Always have problems with a weapon when you aren't familiar with the "Pacifics". I have thousands ofnrounds through mine and have had two malfunctions, both from others limp wristing and poor form. Its just a rare lemon, ammo, or likely the operator. Pacifics. Haha hahaha

Raymond Dillon: It's the crappy ammo, very unfair to test a quality $500 handgun with crappy Pmc range Gun, at the factory they dont use PMC crap to T&E their guns, look at the empty shells that came with your Gun. As another fellow down below said FN guns come from the factory with heavy springs, after 6 years my FNP .40 spring is yet to show any wear.. Quality Guns, next time test it with real ammo.

rickeyparker: Your ammo sounds different, Cheap stuff or a bad lot of ammo. Mine works like a clock.

USA USAUSA: Those problems occurred when you use crap reloaded ammo with questionable crimps. 

Christopher Toner: Before you start pulling your pickles out remember a pistol is a mechanical device and all mechanical devices are prone to failures. Regardless of ammo or brand name you gotta run them and see how they fair. With that said FN makes high quality firearms with top notch quality control. Run your guns not your mouths. 

Neil .Raddu: I have had mine for two months and if you use cheap ammo its does jam up some but use good ammo no problem this is a fun gun

Brendan Erhardt: I'm going to be as nice as possible here for you guys. The gun is perfect end of story. The rounds were literally falling out with no force!!! Every jam was due to crap ammo. The reason the slide didn't stay back was because the crap ammo didn't have enough energy to force it into a locking position. NEVER judge a gun until you have at least 500 rounds of GOOD AMMO through it. If anyone watched this video, and things that fnh makes bad weapons then why so many military contracts? You are also foolish. Please do your research people. I hope you didn't send the gun back, buy good ammo, break it in correctly. That gun is one Of the best pistols money can buy. You have made an amazing decision by adding it to your collection. 

TRoss240: My FNS 40 has been through about 180 rounds of Winchester and Tul BrassMaxx, 0 malfunctions.

HydroFoilPilot: Like Rich Harris mentioned, your PMC ammo might be the culprit for the mis-ejects. Like he suggested, try some quality ammo for your tests. The FNH9 is a quality pistol. It is well designed and has a good track record.

benvmiller: Just bought my FNS-9 yesterday, went home and put 100 rounds through it and not and single problem. Hopefully yours doesn't continue to do this after its broken in.

Belinda Cuffe: I just shot mine for the first time and it misfed five times in the first 34 rounds, and mine also failed to lock back the first time. Ugh!

RainmanE350: My FNS-9 all blk, no safety with night sights has been perfect. I paid $492 shipped and using a CC. A great value but it does seem cheaper than an M&P or Glock. The barrel is a thin wall affair and the polymer seems cheap. The trigger on mine needs smoothing but I've not had a single malfunction.

mattr918: I just watched a friend (un named) who is sponsored by FNH shoot a whole day long match with that gun. no malfunctions. you sir have a good ol lemon! lol I see the shells weren't ejecting very far, they should be flying out

Bbzije1: You got a lemon

Max Kinney: I had the brand new FNX-9, I had more jams then anything. I wasn't limp wristing it either and my rounds were new. I loved the gun but would never trust my life with it. Sold it, will never buy one again. 

Patrick Finnegan: I have an FNS9 and have never experienced this. I love mine!! Thousands of rounds thru mine. You can't base the performance of a gun on one type of ammo. What are you using? Mine eats everything. No problems

coburna5: you should have put the atlantics down here too

Pete David: Just passed 1000 rounds (yes, ONE THOUSAND ROUNDS) with the EXACT same pistol using ONLY good quality factory loads and I've yet to have even single misfire. Extremely doubtful about your post and your extremely misleading title!

Bradley Danek: i have put about 1000 rounds through my FNS-40 and i have had no issues. maybe try cleaning your gun that could be an issue. don't put lite loads through it. ANY gun will mis-feed with lite loads. your not fooling any one with this video. any one who knows anything about guns can see through this BS 

steve hess: Say what ammo was that? Was it factory hardball? What brand and wt? I'm almost afraid to buy any new guns the way they are pumping 'em out, buyer beware "we'll fix 'em if they return 'em". I just watched Hickok45's shoot with the FNS-9 stainless and it was flawless.....................

dynosaur: I have a FNS-9 that does not have the thumb safety and I have only put 50 rounds through it and have had a couple failure to feeds and the slide didn't lock back a couple of times as well. I hope this clears up soon or I will have to send it back to the factory.

Matthew Christy: Don't listen to wolf man

Wolf Moon: This is the only negative review on the fns. Shooting weak ammo is why the gun isn't working. Did you trying breaking in the gun or shooting hot ammo before dragging FNs name through the mud??

craigdamage: Standard velocity for 9mm is 1155 fps with 115gr from 4" barrel. I have seen recent chronograph results with PMC and it is around 1080 fps. Pathetic. 75 fps LESS than standard velocity. Not enough pressure to function. proper. Period. Shoot any 124gr that goes 1100+fps if you want 100% positive function. Currently, virtually ALL cheap/budget ammo is loaded to sub-anemic pressures.

ewalsh19: Try different ammo the gun might not work well with that kind of ammo

pressendforspanish: FN handguns have heavy recoil springs but will break in in 100 to 200 rounds. Are you shooting reloads?

Wolf Moon: Any person with a brain can see that you are shooting weak ammo. When you have weak ejections with standard "non-NATO" ammo, all you do is lock-back the slide for 3 days to break-in the recoil spring. Instead you slander FN and keep this video active. FN fixed your gun (by locking back the slide 3 days) and returned it to you. Now it works. The FNS was designed to shoot mil-spec ammo. Shooting crapty 115g crap ammo will cause a gun to short stroke the slide until after the recoil spring breaks-in. You really need to remove this video. FN-Herstal can easily bitch-slap you with lawsuit for libel. 

BJJrollerT: That sucks. I have put over 1,000 rds through my FNS-40 over the past year and I have yet to have one hiccup. Hope you get that solved with FNH soon. I love my FN. 

Herb Petty: Are you using factory loads, or reloads. that may have a lot to do with the issues you pointed out in your video.

pressendforspanish: FN handguns have heavy recoil springs but will break in in 100 to 200 rounds. Are you shooting reloads?

eagleshadow2020: Sounds like either a ammo issue, mag issue, or u just need to clean your handgun but other than that great shooting.

GARYMANDIEVAN: Amen on That, Thanks

Aint1S: Use that thing a boomerang & pray it doesn't come back! Herstal, you need QC on all your weapons... if a officer (military or police) bought that pistol & had that happen.

Shooter7point62: break-in period? poor ammo choice?

Quagmire71006: That gun looks as dry as a 80 year old prostitute. Lube that thing up. All guns also require a small break in period. Cheap ammo don't work for crap in FNs.

impaltik: Good to hear sir! My friend also have the FNS9 and it works flawless. It was his first pistol too.

Mike Warren: at this point i do not think my wife is ready for a gun anyway.

Ham Sammich: I planned on going on a "this gun is awesome" rant, but i see you've fixed the problem. I bought my first gun ever 3 days ago (the FNS-9) and I love it. Put over 300 rounds through it on easter, everything from cheap brass, steel, reloads, to higher quality ammo, and didn't have a jam or any malfunction! Glad I didn't have to "polish" anything to get it working, because although I am comfortable field stipping and cleaning this weapon, I wouldn't want to change anything and screw it up.

Stag223AR15: Im so glad you mentioned that in the end i noticed on mine the tooling marks in the feed ramp were to deep simple mothers mag and a dremel im on 940 rounds with no miss feeds

PrepperKip: Keep up dated if you can get the bugs worked out.

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
