FNH-FNS-9mm JAM-A-MATIC




What do you think about this video?

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.

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.

coburna5: you should have put the atlantics down here too

Matthew Christy: Don't listen to wolf man

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

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

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.

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.

Wolf Moon: Your ammo is too weak. You should lock back the slide for 72 hours to break-in the recoil spring. There's nothing wrong with the gun, it's the ammo.

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.....................

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!

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.

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!

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

Andy Logan: "Lock the slide back to break in the spring." Apparently none of you know how springs work. Apparently you all think that leaving a mag loaded for a period of time wears that spring out too? Basic research on spring wear and compression, please. Locking the slide back does nothing. Racking it a bunch....maybe.

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 

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.

Bbzije1: You got a lemon

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. 

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??

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. 

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?

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.

Lopez0311 .: That's what u thought?! I said I'd show u! Now I noticed a navy seal pic on ur you tube profile? R u a seal cuz if u are then i show no disrespect for u not believing me... I'm a marine infantry rifleman/ scout sniper recruit so I respect my brothers and u should to if ur even military!

Niceshot1385: Looks like it needs to be broke in.

mattbrothertonmb: Just normal break in issues for a new pistol. Go through 200-250 rounds before you worry about it. Problem will work itself out by then i imagine.

Mike Warren: I wouldnt mind having a revolver. a nice big one. went to show my gun to a neighbor, he says hold on. comes out looking like he just stepped out of a western.

GARYMANDIEVAN: This one runs great now we polished everything up and she's a keeper put 200 rounds in it last week, Thanks

daniel pritchett: i havent had any problems with my fns had 500 round go throught it no problem

AregularGuy90: 4,000rds and nothing bad to speak of... im thinking you have a lemon dude

Sinkhole100: As with all FNH 9mm handguns. They are designed to be a service pistol and to fire 124Gr. FMJ. Use of 115Gr. or lower is not recommended until after you have broken the gun in. Most FN owners will tell you to clean a fresh out of the box gun and store it with the slide locked open for a week and load your mags and store them full for a week before going out to the range. if you choose not to do this I would recommend only 124Gr.-147Gr. ammo for the 1st 200-300 rounds.

thebudgetarmory1: Looks like it might be a magazine issue. Of course, it could've bee the Boogeyman after all.

victor garcia: Hey there Gary I have a FNS 40 and it did that to the first time I shoot it only happened ones, I have shoot over 500 rounds from it(I have owned it for about 1 month) and have not had a problem with it love this gun.

cisum241: Only way this gun is hanging up is unless your using bullcrap ammo

Mike Warren: ignore my last comment. i want to get a revolver. need to get wifey a gun first. she does not like revolvers

Mike Warren: What turned out to be the problem?

E.W.E. Hughes Jr: Break in period should be no more than a couple of magazines. After that, the gun's got issues; send it back.

OnezVision: I have a fns 9. It jammed on me 4 times in 20 rounds. It was the mag tho.

nubian1911: Could be the ammo you are using. I've put almost 1500 rounds through mine (124gr) no issues.
