Possible to still find FNP 9 MM?

Is it possible to still find FNP 9MM? I am considering a hammer fired FN pistol;and wish that I had purchased one last fall when they were going for $400.00. Does FN still make them or has this model been replaced by the FNX?

Had one for about a year now and it is probably the best firearm ive ever owned. Got somewhere near 2000 rounds threw it and haven't had the first malfunction or any problems out of it at all. Accuracy is amazing and there is almost no recoil at all.

Hope I can still find one

I am deployed to afghanistan until August. Hope I can still find one. The fnx models are much more expensive.

The FNX has replaced it, but I can't 100% say there aren't anymore new FNP's out there. If you mean used well then of course, there is always used guns out there to be bought up.. I don't remember FN's going for $400 though, hell wish I woulda caught that one. Just got an FNS last week cost me $680. (w/ Trijicon night sights)

Ready for this? You got a hell of a deal on your FNS compared to the gun show in Reno over the weekend. I thought mine was expensive at $649 and almost didn't get it. Took a couple trips to convince myself and I am tickled to death I did get it. Then I got it's little brother (FNS 9) and it was $639 but I know the guy at the gun shop and got a discount.
The gun show..... they were priced $910-$1,088! This whole gun idea thing is becoming real crap for the every day guy. They're slowly making it again so only the rich can own. Ammo went equally and more so crazy. I picked up 3000 primers and 1500 bullets for reloading, and got some molds. Hopefully this will settle back down somewhere but folks are saying it's gonna stay this way for awhile. Our gun shop doesn't expect ammo for 3 or more months.
Hey.. I watched them sale 6 FNS's so folks are still buying. Thankfully I won't be looking for any more for a long time. A gunsmith friend wanted a FNS 40, looked at the prices and left.... he still wants and is looking but who knows in todays world?

I paid $382.50 on closeout at a local retailer for my FNP9 in September 2009.

There are 2 FNP9s on gunbroker @ $499 starting bid right now. I bought both my FNP40s early in '12, $419 & $429 respectively and 9s were right in that range.

My little Brother picked up a brand new one around Oct. It had two 10 round and three 15 round mags. He got it for right around $500. He has not shot it much with the cost of ammo recently. It is a really nice gun. I'm not familiar with the FNX, but they better have done some really good improvements to top the FNP.

The main differences are, if I remember correctly, that the FNX is "fully ambidextrous" with every permanently available on both sides except for the takedown.

Also, I think they upped the capacity by 2 rounds on the stock configuration, and added front serrations on the slide. Theyre very similar to my knowledge...

Either way, the FNX 9 is a spectacular pistol. If the FNP isnt available in something you like, I highly recommend the FNX

will be hard to find new. Youll probably have to look used. I just picked up a used FNP 9mm with 7 mags and trijicon night sights. He was asking 500 then lowered to 450 and i talked him down to 400.

I've noticed various fnp's going for much less than the FNX models. It may have changed but not long ago ( within the last 6-7 months) I've seen fnp's going for the low 400 range. Or, spend another $100 to &150.00 and get the FNX. Just don't pay more than about $400 to $425.00 for a used fnp. . Good luck

I recently found a NIB FN FNP 9 USG at my LGS for $450. I ended up buying it because I always liked the FNP, and since being replaced by the FNX, they won't be around forever.

I just ordered 2 more mags for it, so I'll have a total of 5, and I installed a set of Ameriglo night sights on it earlier today. Next on the list is a holster.

I have only shot 150 rounds through mine so far, but it was flawless and accurate. No problems whatsoever.

Here is a pic of mine-

I've seen them anywhere between $500-$650 depending on where they are being sold. Cabelas has them for $619-$649, but they are more expensive than anybody else locally where I live. The FNP can be found for $400-$450 usually.
