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.
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.
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.
Frank Castle: Those problems occurred when you use crap reloaded ammo with questionable
Matthew Christy: Don't listen to wolf man
Marc White: could you be more pacific
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
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
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.
pressendforspanish: FN handguns have heavy recoil springs but will break in in 100 to 200
rounds. Are you shooting reloads?
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.
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
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
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.....................
rickeyparker: Your ammo sounds different, Cheap stuff or a bad lot of ammo. Mine works
like a clock.
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.
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.
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.
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
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!
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
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??
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.
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
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
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.
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
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
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
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...
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
TRoss240: My FNS 40 has been through about 180 rounds of Winchester and Tul
BrassMaxx, 0 malfunctions.
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
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
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
Vet: When I graduated High School, all I wanted to do was kick back and relax without having to do any homework. But I realized I have no money to do anything fun. So I went to a San Francisco Vet School to get trained to make money. But seeing your videos, I am gonna be an internet marketer on the side. Let me know if you have any tips. Thanks.
