Thanks to them ! Hello YouTube and welcome to this new unboxing video ! Today I show you a gun that has been generously offered to me by Cybergun, this is the brand new FN FNS-9 A new model among the FN Herstal airsoft guns of Cybergun This is more or less the little brother of the FNX 45 Tactical, which has been available for like 2 years and a half As I was saying the gun has been offered to me ; at the time I’m making this video I don’t think it’s already available But according to Cybergun its public price will be 159 € (maybe some shops will sell it for a lesser price though) It’s a bit less expensive than the FNX 45, let’s hope the quality of the gun will not drop As far as I’m concerned the FNX 45 is really a gun I liked, so I’m enthusiasted by this new model Let’s open the box, you had plenty of time to look at the box itself It starts with this little booklet which explains how to operate the gun (no exploded parts though, which is sad) You don’t have tips regarding the maintenance as well, yet maintenance is obviously an important point when it comes to gas guns I’m guessing that the plastic shell used here is the same than the one used for the FNX 45 We have here the gun, its magazine, and a smaller back plate for the grip (more about this later) And here is the FN FNS-9, what is this gun ? Among the most modern pistols made by FN, we have 2 series I believe : the FNX and the FNS Among the FNX we have of course the FNX-45 Tactical I showed on my channel already The most obvious difference between the FNX and FNS is the lack of external hammer on the FNS, which uses a striker system I believe the “S” in “FNS” actually means Striker Here we have a replica of the FNS-9, which is chambered for the 9mm, a version is also chambered for the .
40 S&W, the FNS-40 Also, the model I have here doesn’t have a manual safety (even though you can see an emplacement for it on the frame) Cybergun chooses to not put manual safety on the gun (which is not unrealistic, the real one is available without one too) I don’t think manual safeties in Airsoft are really important or used so I don’t mind really, personally The real FNS have a “pre set striker”, which I believe is similar to the system used by Glock It’s not really a single action : when the gun is armed, the striker is half cocked Pulling the trigger finishes to arm the striker and then releases it In theory, it’s a good balance between having a comfortable trigger to use and a safe trigger which will avoid accidental discharges In general I like to talk about the movies, TV shows and stuff where the guns I show appear, but in this case I have no idea, leave a comment if you know So, this was about the real one, here we have a licensed replica, conceived by Cybergun and made by VFC This information has been actually confirmed to me by Cybergun : VFC does produce this gun This is the first time that Cybergun confirmed this kind of detail to me, which is new For the FNX 45 it was hardly a secret anyway, yet it wasn’t confirmed by Cybergun This time we have an official confirmation, which personally is something I appreciate When it comes to gas guns from VFC, we had some nice guns and some not so nice ; I like the FNX 45, I also like the Glock 42 Both guns have a great finish and their performances weren’t bad at all Let’s hope it will be the same with this gun Here is the gun from a closer point of view, the finish is really nice, the gun is full metal (barrel and slide are made of metal, frame is made of plastic, like the real one) Note the markings Here is the magazine, it has a more “raw” finish compared to the FNX 45 magazine which is chromed with black reflects You have this time again the injection valve just under the percussion valve and not under the magazine like most guns It’s a detail I like, mostly because it makes the gun looks more realistic Let’s look at the trigger now, you have more or less the same passive safety you’d find on a S&W M&P You have to pull the bottom of the trigger, otherwise it will block The trigger actually feels a bit hard, there is almost no first travel, you touch the wall very quickly After the wall the course is short and hard There is almost no over travel either, passed the break I can’t move the trigger more Trigger reset now.
.. Well, the trigger pull itself is actually very nice, but the trigger reset is scratchy A bit sad, since the trigger pull itself is nice as far as I’m concerned, maybe the trigger reset will get better after some use Maybe some people will find the trigger too hard, but at least it makes it more realistic Note that the mag release button is ambidextrous, you can use it from both sides No problem when I use it from the left, it appears to be a bit harder on the right side though for some reason The slide release lever is ambidextrous too Note the discreet marking here, which I like : the marking is on the gun, but it’s not overwhelming like on some other guns Another detail we saw on some GBB made by VFC : the nozzle end which looks like a cartridge with the shell and bullet here On the FNS, the nozzle sticks to the hop up unit for a long time, which allows you to fake a brass check On a real gun, when you put a magazine and pull the slide, you can do a brass check, which consists of pulling the slide on 2 cm in order to see if a cartridge has effectively been chambered On an airsoft gun it’s not going to be useful since you can’t see if a bbs is inside the hop up unit or not, but you can still fake a brass check Not even sure it has been made on purpose, but as far as I’m concerned I love this little detail Let’s look inside now : I pulled the mag out, I pull the slide and turn the disassembly lever Note the hop up adjustment wheel The gun is well greased actually ; it does come directly from Cybergun though, it has not been stored in a warehouse for months However and as usual with gas guns, I would recommend to lubricate the gun yourself when you receive it before starting to use it Note the very large nozzle here, the shape in the back is different compared to the FNX, yet they both have the front part in the shape of a cartridge I guess the point here is to use as much gas as possible to move the slide, probably to get a better kick or something Let’s hope it will not decrease the cool down resistance and autonomy of the gun, we’ll see in the shooting video The external barrel, with the inner barrel and hop up unit attached to it, not sure to know what’s the point Here is the inside It uses a Marui type inner barrel and hop up rubber, which is a good news, it will be easy to replace those to improve the performances if it’s needed I have put some gas in the magazine, I’ll make some dry shots just to feel the kick Wow ! The kick is really really cool I’m genuinely impressed ; the kick of the FNX 45 was already quite cool, but I’d say it’s even better on this gun Honestly it almost feels like shooting a CO2 GBB gun It’s always a bit subjective of course, but it feels really nice to me As said earlier in the video, the gun comes with this 2nd back plate for the grip Actually the one installed on the gun right now is the 2nd one I tried both and prefered this one To remove it, use a thin tool through this hole and push it away The plate is retained by this small piece of plastic, which doesn’t appear to be super sturdy But I guess it’s not something you’re going to change all the time Let’s put the straight one It makes the grip of the gun more straight as well It’s supposed to be better for those who have small hands, which is my case, but personally I prefer the other one better I think the straight edges of this plate are uncomfortable And the larger grip doesn’t really make it harder to grip to me, it’s not like it was an enormous gun in the first place I guess I said pretty much all I had to say about the gun, which so far is really a gun I like Not saying that because it has been offered to me by Cybergun but because I honestly don’t find a lot of bad things to say about it Finish is very good, trigger feeling is quite nice as well despite the scratchy trigger reset The kick in particular is really impressive The price seems reasonnable enough to me ; it’s not cheap but it’s not ridiculously overpriced either I’m not sure what its power is going to be but I believe it will be reasonnable We’ll see how it performs when it comes to range and accuracy But even if it was bad, it should be easy enough to improve since it takes Marui type inner barrels and hop up rubbers I’ll make of course a shooting video, we’ll see the kind of performances we’ll be able to get from it I’ll try to see how is the cool down and cold resistance since we’re still in winter Thanks for watching the video and see you next time for the shooting video !
