About the Handgun:
The FNX Series features several step-improvements over FN's FNP series polymer pistols. The most noticeable improvements are a MIL-STD mounting rail,proportional 3-dot sights, ambidextrous magazine release and decock lever with a new manual safety setting and four interchangeable backstrap inserts instead of just two that comes with the FNP. Other features include front and rear cocking serrations and serrated trigger guard.
About the Manufacturer:
This company was set up in 1889 by a consortium of Belgium gunmakers in order to manufacture Mauser rifles under license for the Belgian Army. In 1897 FN began a decades-long partnership with John Moses Browning, the most innovative firearms designer in modern history. Within a century it had become one of the worlds major gunmakers. In 1907 FN began the official use of the Browning name in conjunction with their firearms. Most of what FN produced was based on John Browning's designs until the 1970s when they began developing designs of their own. In 1982 FN opened a manufacturing facility in South Carolina to support a US military small arms contract. In 1988 FN became sole owner of Browning USA. Today FN continues to produce both military commercial firearms for the US market from their South Carolina plant.
About the Cartridge:
This cartridge was developed as a joint venture between Winchester and Smith & Wesson. It was an effort to to create a cartridge with the same power as the 10mm Norma round that the FBI had just started using, but in a shorter case. The shorter cartridge would facilitate accuracy and allow use of a smaller, more comfortable grip frame. The .40 S&W has become the cartridge of choice for many law enforcement agencies in the United States.
