Just a fancier Fabrique National USA FNP really. Nice gun and they are reformatting it for the 45acp military trials.

True...but I dont think that the better looks of the brownings over the FN warrants teh inceadible markup in price. Its about 250-300 bucks difference for a Hi Power. Shit for a 150 you can have an FN chromed.

let's just say that they're not designed to shoot much more than a few thousand rounds in their lifetime.

i can't say where i know this from, but let's say it's from high up in FN.

Thats odd since they have removable and hence replaceable frame rails. These were to be the platform for the 45acp pistol FN was to submit for testing to the US army before that was put on hold.

ever wonder why they'd have replaceable frame rails?

like i said, i don't know the specifics, only that i wouldn't buy one (aside from other personal reasons)

Well most poly frame guns do not so when they wear out you have to throw them out...makes it have a longer service life than most other poly frame guns. This makes them more attractive to any military or police contracts since they tend to be cheap and try to squeeze every ounce of life from the gun.

It might be that the frame rails ar a little soft.......dont know but that was the reasoning behind several reviews I read.

already have one.....only gripe is that the Steyr, like a glock is basically a modified single action design.

no arguments there. i personally detest double action since they're either super heavy, or super long. the only double action i actually *like* is the Colt All American 2000 or whatever nom de plume it has. it's a long pull but 100% consistent, smooth and light.

too bad the gun's ugly and never really was produced :|

The colt 2000 was produced for like 1 or 2 years.

I prefer a DA/SA trigger just incase. Thats why I really like the striker fired DA/SA Walther p99 and Taurus 24/7 pro
