Eric Johnson: If you're using 115 gr bullets, then this could be the issue for a newer gun. Try locking the slide back for a couple days, then try it again. My gun had a similar problem, but it was because of how beefy the spring is. Locking it back broke the spring in enough for it to be happy and now it's a beast :)
Eric Johnson: I know this is a little old and I bet you knew this already, but the springs in the FNX and/or FNS line are pretty "stocky" and when the guns are pretty new, they often won't cycle 115 gr rounds correctly. I had this issue with my FNX when I got it and was heartbroken, then found out if I left the slide open for a weekend, it'd like go away. I did so and the problem disappeared and I really enjoy the gun. Happy to hear it's functioning effectively now!
bottle2lip: own both an FNP 40 (first gen) and a newer FNS 9...zero problems from any of them, over the years with at least 5000 rounds through them...the only time was with cheap steel cased ammo, which was expected..can mush up any modern firearm. Looks like you got a bad mag or two, or bad ammo...or a defective handgun (could be)...overall though these guns are known for their rock solid reliabilty
Zachary Brown: Def seems like a mag issue from both the failures in the video the fns is a great gun lube ur gun n ur mag this wont happen again.
112010lopez: 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!
GARYMANDIEVAN: Thats what I thought
112010lopez: Never posted a vid on YouTube if there is some other way to show you I'd be more than happy to show u my gun.
GARYMANDIEVAN: Show it to me on a video if you own one Friend, Thanks
112010lopez: Don't listen to this vid... He prob using dirty ammo or limp wristing, iv owned this gun a little less than a year and has preformed flawlessly! I put my family and my own life behind this gun with no worries!
Les Hahn: Actually they don't !.....Better to buy another pistol! ...My FNS-9 had same issues ..
Les Hahn: They wont address the issue !...They tell you they cant duplicate the problem ....Then your out the $77.00 to send it back to them thru UPS ....
Les Hahn: HA HA ....They have a real Great Customer Service !....Better buy a Glock.Rather than deal with those jokers
Les Hahn: I can Believe it .....I had same experience !
Les Hahn: I bought this same gun last month !...I had the exact same problem !...My opinion ( Buy something else )....Sent it back to FNH ...Would rather deal with another Company at this point ...Maybe stick with Glocks ( Customer service @ FNH /Browning sucks )
Steve Edwards: I have an FNS9 it has eaten every kind of ammo I have fed it, including reloads, never had a failure to feed, fire, or a stovepipe, not one, ever. I've put about 2,500 rounds through it. I would trust my life to my FNS9.
Niceshot1385: Looks like it needs to be broke in.
Thegreenjoe81: I own the fns 40 and never had an issue with it. Ive shot well over 1500 rounds of everything from cheap ammo to good ammo and it just keeps on going. I dont like the checkered grips on it , but a hogue slip on rubber grip solved that problem. Hope you dont have any more problems with it
Robert Dean: I own sigs, and I never have any jams ever. I have a Sig p220 that's my higher end and its a beast it eats cheap to pricey ammo anything I feed it, it eats and asks for more. My lower end polymer Sig sp2022 same thing shoots,shoots,and then shoots some more. I'm sure maybe this was a mag issue atleast a lot of times it is. Its a nice looking pistol btw.
Mike Warren: What turned out to be the problem?
GARYMANDIEVAN: Yes sir it was fixed runs great now, Thanks
Mike Warren: What was the outcome? Did lubing fix it? ever send it into fn?
civicilian: I have shot close to 1500 rounds through my FNP-9 and NOT ONCE has it mis-fed. I typically use cheap Blazer or American Eagle ammo and it's always performed flawlessly. Of course, I clean it and take care of it every now and then unlike some people apparently lol FNH is the best gun for the money imo. I am no expert but I like my FN better than any Glock, S&W, Beretta, Sig, Hi-point, etc etc or any other gun I have used/owned. I trade rifles/guns sometimes, but I will always keep my FNP-9.
Gamers Life: I would like to call BS on that. when I buy M&P's I've never had to even clean them up before they work right. right out of the box I put 300 rounds through it with no issue, just some cheap Federal stuff. and I hardly ever put oil on it either, no issues. I admit most guns do need the care but as far as I've experience and everyone I've talked to M&P's are great with or without all that care.
I just hope my FNS-9 turn out to be similar. :P
godlyk3: is that a brand new mag? if so fully load it let it sit for a week then empty it. did that with my kimber that was jamming just like that fixed the issue.
David Probus: I am new to shooting and I am a lefty shooter. This gun has performed flawless for me every time I shot it. Glad you got it working well. It's a great firearm.
GARYMANDIEVAN: Amen on That, Thanks
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.
cisum241: Only way this gun is hanging up is unless your using bullcrap ammo
john Doe: Seems to work just fine when you don't limp wrist it
Lexa Monsteur: Mine runs great. I also had the jamming issue with the first few magazines when it was brand new, but after about 100 rounds and a cleaning, it runs very smoothly.
cloudkicker42: The gun looks like its bone dry. Lube that puppy up, fn makes great guns not over rated like the glock.
GARYMANDIEVAN: Thats what I'm talking about, great buy
MG42pillbox: I just get the Glock G3 so I dont have to polish or modify anything.
intelbrain: magazine notch is probably loose
samiam1150: It's a new gun. It just needs to be broken in. Run it wet for the first 200 rounds. Polishing the feed ramp might help.
Anthony Caramiello: I've noticed by watching the gun has a very weak ejection path. Not throwing the brass far at all. The ejector probably needs to be tuned. FN has good product support probably covered under warranty.
Mike Warren: at this point i do not think my wife is ready for a gun anyway.
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: you will love the fns9
LivonianKnight: I love revolvers, they have a nice old-style, authentic feel to them. Semi-autos do have their place though. I will eventually have one of each.
LivonianKnight: I use to have a Walther PPQ M2 for .40 caliber. I LOVED the ergonomics of that handgun. I didn't like the recoil, it was extremely snappy. However, Walther does make a PPQ M2 for 9mm. I'm not sure what the recoil is like for that, but I'm sure it's not nearly as snappy. I'm not a Glock fan, so I won't recommend a Glock 26, but it is a lightweight, easily concealable handgun. Smaller handguns do tend to have more recoil, so that's also something to consider.
Mike Warren: What semi auto would you recommend for my wife? she doesn't like the feel of the fns9. too big for her hands i think.
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.
LivonianKnight: I have a Smith and Wesson Model 60 Pro Series .357 Magnum. I love that gun, even though I don't have near the ammo capacity. I've been meaning to get a revolver for awhile. Once I get the money for the handgun I want, then I'll get another semi-auto. As for the ammo that jammed, I was just using some FMJ, I think it was American Eagle, Federal, or Winchester. I prefer to buy American as well.
WeeshtBampot: With FN's growing quality control issues and terrible customer.....Run from purchasing their products.
Mike Warren: I would blame the ammo on that one. What do you have now? Personally i wont buy one that is not american made. as far as my fns9. seems the trigger is still a little stagy which is most anyone can complain about. but i do not notice it when shooting. not even with snap caps. other than that the sight dot fell out. fnh was quick to mail me a new sight no questions asked.
LivonianKnight: Yes, I did have one for awhile, and it did jam once, but only when my fiance was shooting it. The FNS-9 is alright, but not my favorite semi-auto.
Mike Warren: my front night sight dot fell out. :(
Mike Warren: Did you get one? this video was made when the gun came out. there were some issues with it. they have since been fixed. its a great gun. seen 10k rounds go through it.
quig1984m: Have near the track record my 870 has.. After buying the fnp tactical I thought I would be a fn fan for along long time..great American made awesomeness...I'm def reconsidering..this is not the only vid of the fans failing miserably
