Here at the Crimson Trace Midnight 3-Gun Invitational, Larry and Ken are showing off the new FNS-40 longslide. The version they brought has a nice black finish as opposed to the slick chrome finish on the 9mm version we’ve already seen. According to the guys, the FNS-40 longslide is going to ship before the 9mm version and should be hitting the shelves soon. MSRP, according to Ken, is going to be within $75 of the original FNS model. I had a chance to try it out and even though we were using full power 40 caliber loads, the gun felt like a 9mm. And then Chris Cerino went 9 for 10 hitting a steel plate at 100 yards with it, offhand. Ahhh, the sweet sweet accuracy of a cold hammer forged barrel.


  1. Darn it, I wanted FN to go the opposite way- make a more compact-frame gun. My FNX-9 has treated me pretty well, but it’s a weapon suited for duty and for the range, not concealment.
