The FN FNX is a semi-automatic, short-recoil-operated pistol developed by Fabrique Nationale of Herstal, in Belgium, and manufactured in this European country and in the United States of America. It has been produced in three varsions, chambered for .45ACP (11.43x23mm), 9x19mm Parabellum, and .40S&W cartridges. The pistol frame is polymer but the slide and barrel are made of steel. The FNX is a fully ambidextrous handgun, with the safety and magazine release situated on both side of the pistol. This gun is hammer-fired, with a single-action/double-action trigger system. The receiver of the FNX-45 tactical is fed from an 15-round magazine, while the FNX-9 takes a 17-round magazine, and the FNX-40 use a 14-round magazine. All three versions are fitted with a picatinny rail for laser pointers. The pistol comes in a blue box, with three magazines and interchangeable backstraps. As most of the firearms developed by Fabrique Nationale, it is a high-quality, accurate, and dependable piece to carry around, both for defense and offense.
