Anyway my friend just bought a sig p226 and all i hear him say is how many shots can be fired through a 226 and how reliable it is and how crap the FNP40 is etc etc, anyway i have the FNP40 and would swear by this monster. but i want to know how many rounds have you guys put through your FNP9s and FNP40s, i know the sigs can handle a sh*t ton of rounds through them but what about our babies? can they stack up to the Sig P226?

1000 rounds is my count.... so far

In all honesty - its all down to preference. People like to talk crap and compare 1 brand against another - that's really the sign of someone who knows less about guns than they think...

Now - sometimes a brand's history of problems can be legitimate - like I won't buy certain brands (like a Taurus). But, if someone here has a Taurus that THEY like, and works great for them - then you won't see me putting their gun down. If they ask my opinion, I may give it. But, I wouldn't "diss' someone's item (gun, car, etc)... Unless of course its a Bryco or something :lol:

If U like your FNP - don't worry about it.

I like my 9mm FNP. And, I am not really a Sig fan. However, I still prefer my Walther P99 above any other gun... Its all preference....

I guess it really boils down to what aspects of the gun you are comparing.
Given that the sig design has been out for so long and the FNP is relatively new, I think it's tough to compare. We'll have to wait and see how long these new FNP's hold up as far as total round count longevity is concerned.

If ergonomics and handling is compared, I am biased towards the FNP. We have yet to see total endurance factored in.

what he said..........As a former Marine, I'm very well versed in the quality of FN's weapons. I have no doubt that in the long run, the FNP handgun line will be a success, but time will bear that out.

I recently sold off my Beretta to fund my FNP, and don't regret it. Also, I just purchased a new Sig P220 DAK this week, as it has similar ergonomics to the FNP, and Sig's legendary reliability. I think in the end, I'd trust my life to either one.

I thinks its like comparing apples and oranges. Polymer pistol vs All Metal.

I have always been a huge Sig fan. They are over-engineerd, but still a fantastic firearm.

I also love my new FNP 45.

All depends on what you are looking for I guess.

FN quality is on par with any manufacturer, so compare price, size, weight and capacity...and your question is answered, IMNSHO.
