Interesting... odd that FNH doesn't have a press release on it yet.

Ah crap better not be priced $500 or under in stores or I'll have to suicide. The FNP's were a bit blocky in my hands, if this one feels right I'm a goner. I'll never get that darned CZ.

I'd have to buy one, specially if they do an FNS tactical 9mm.

let the onslaught begin but... Striker? I'm not familiar with the concept and couldn't get a good Wikipedia answer. What's the difference between a firing pin, striker, and hammer w/firing pin attached? The chiding may commence:

Agree with you on both points. I like the traditional hammer with DA or SA carry capability.
Makes the FNX one of the few on the market. It will be interesting if they are priced lower to compete with the other striker pistols.

Saw it at the Assn of the US Army conference last Monday along with all the other cool FN arms.

Very nice!!!! identical to FNX with an M&P style trigger and striker block. Ambidextrous mag release and thumb safety.
