TTAG’s Jon Wayne Taylor recently reviewed the FNX-45 Tactical, awarding the gun four stars (the trigger reset robbed it of a perfect score). Dan carries an FNX-9c. Nick used to compete for the FN shooting team (hence the reason he doesn’t review their guns). To say we’re big fans of the Belgian brand would be a serious understatement. We’ve also been fortunate enough to tour their South Carolina factory. Even if you can’t get inside the secure facility, there’s now a reason to visit FN-USA. Guns! To buy! The FN Pro-Shop is open for business. Let us know if you go, and what you buy. Jelly! Press release . . .

If TTAG picks up the bill I’ll drive down and order up a custom Five-seveN, and a few cases of ammunition. *crickets* Yeah I didn’t think TTAG would pay the tab on that either.
Would’ve been nice if this article had been posted about 2 weeks earlier so we could have gone to the grand opening.
I’ll be in Columbia over Christmas and will visit the Pro Shop the same day that I make my yearly pilgrimage to PSA.
Mmmmm. Loves me some FN. don’t suppose they’ll have an FS2000 on the wall, huh?
It’s a pro shop that commands pro shop prices. It’s not a “factory outlet” store with $599 blem SCARs or $199 “scratch ‘n dent” pistols.
I can get better deals for FN guns at the LGS.
Any chance I can get a factory threaded barrel for my five seven?
Oh, they’re just selling the guns? Oh well.
FN is one of the brands I don’t actually own, but definitely enjoyed in the USMC.
Indeed. FN defenitly beat out any colt I ever used in the army. Better accuracy and reliability. One of my buddies managed to get an a4 that was shooting 1/4 MOA with an acog at 100 yards. He sucked at everything past 100, but his grouping was awesome.
I would like to be able to buy a threaded barrel for my regular FNX 45. It’s my favorite semi-auto to shoot, and 15 rounds of 45 ACP is a heavy hitter.
I went on the grand opening day. Too many people to get a look at anything up close. They had a local Belgian food truck there and gave out tickets so you could get some free food. I have been back 2 times since. They have a display called the Manager’s Special which was a shotgun (don’t remember the price) and their M4 clone and A2 profile AR-15 for $689 a piece. I saw that the SCAR 16 S IOP price was $2200ish. They have a display with IOP pistols and the prices are good. The best part is they have a display with factory blems (in this case all 40 S&W at the moment) various FNS and FNX for as cheap as $389. They have their uppers as well. They cheapest was more then the Manager’s Special. They said to keep coming back to check on the blem selection. I too have taken the tour of the facility my last one was a few months before sandy hook and at the end of the tour their was a room with factory blems and production over runs. I bought my SCAR 16S for a steal $1789 as it was a blem model. They used to send out an email if you were on the distro that said what was in stock and the prices but that stopped right after sandy hook and the buying panic.
FNX-9c? I got excited for a second, but after a quick google I’m assuming FNS-9c…
Just went in a couple days ago and bought a fnp 9mm with stainless upper for 359.00. Nice handgun.
