Ammunition
The FNS™-9 pistol uses the current standard handgun 9x19 mm ammunition. The 9mm is one of the best rounds ever developed. It creates a low recoil, which allows for quick follow-up shots. The 9mm has a very high chamber pressure, which demands a high quality weapon, but that energy is used to propel the 9mm to a very high speed. Its high speed makes the 9mm useful at longer ranges and is thus very suitable for sub machine guns. The stopping power of the 9mm round, especially FMJ rounds, is moderate. However, it is quite effective in piercing objects and if necessary one can quickly fire a second round. The 9mm is quite small and allows for a high magazine capacity.
Accessories

Additionally, the pistol comes standard with a number of ergonomic features: ultra no-slip checkered grips for an improved grip, front serrations for press check and three interchangeable backstrap inserts for a customized fit. All operating controls are fully ambidextrous.
