FN has a real jewel named the FNS, a striker fired US built handgun that is really turning heads. I contacted the good folks at FN to arrange a test model. Sadly FN has no plans to release, in the US, the weapon until a yet to be specify date in 2012. I wish I had more information but this seems to be typical FN. I was really hoping for a US model to become a mainstream choice for US buyers. More likely folks will discount waiting on it and buy another model from Glock or Springfield ect.
FN: We will pay the higher price BUT we need timely releases and a little more interest focused on us as non government consumers. So we wait, well after the same gun was released for review in Europe.
