    New FNS 9C on the way!

    Congrats on receiving your new FNS9C. Since FN test fires at the factory you will see some wear on the weapon. No problem however as it will not affect function. Not a sure how many rounds they test fire however. Enjoy the range!

The company I work for is a sub-contractor for FN and I know they would reject one of my parts for this issue. I will take it to the range this weekend and put some rounds through it. Does anyone have any idea how many rounds they fire through a gun at the factory?

    Just purchased my first FN. Got the FN9C and love it. I am in the process of breaking it in. After about 500 rounds or so it will become my EDC. Waiting on a clinger stingray IWB holster and a galco speed paddle leather holster.

    Welcome to the family, and congratulations on the new 9c. I bought a 9c on a bit of a whim and it turned out to be my favorite pistol. I like and shoot it better than the full size 9 and any of the Glocks I own.

    So far I am liking it better than most of my other guns from my 1911 to my M&P.

    If you take it to the range before checking with FNH, you've destroyed the evidence!! Just working the slide can cause scratches on a barrel. If that's the only issue you see, after you fire it a number of times, you'll see more.

    "I believe buy law just 1 round."
    In nearly all states (now probably all), gunmakers are no longer required to provide a fired casing. That said, I suspect that many gunmakers will fire a gun more than just once to assure proper function. (I'd like to know that the second round feeds properly, for example, since the first one wasn't fed automatically.)

    FNH no longer includes a spent casing with the guns now being produced here in the U.S., according to recent feedback from FNH, but that doesn't tell you anything about functional testing prior to being put into the pipeline.

    I've never really understood the value of spent casings to a forensic specialist, when barrels can be changed so easily; if the barrel hasn't been changed, examining the rounds that pass through the barrel make so much more sense. As for casings: it would be easy to pick up casings (wearing gloves) at a gun range and toss them around at a crime scene to really confuse things.

    It is not really wear that I am seeing, I didn't go into full detail; but there is a spot on the outside of the slide that the Phosphate is missing, just a dot... but I am sure this will continue to get worse very soon.

    Don't think the finish has been phosphated. That's some sort of sprayed-on finish applied to the underlying stainless metal slide. That finish really protects nothing, and is done when a non-glare (i.e., not silver) slide is sought.

    You MIGHT want to take a photo of the problem area and send it to FNH to see what they say. FNH may ask you to send the gun back. (If they don't, matte black auto body touch-up paint seems to fix such problems with most guns. Get a small spray can, spray some on plastic or aluminum foil, and apply it with a small "model" paint brush.)
