REFLEX: Micro 9 from FN America


FN America describes the Reflex, in part, thusly:

“The FN Reflex is capable of achieving match-grade accuracy from its a 3.3-inch cold hammer-forged barrel, which is housed within a 6.2-inch slide that has front and rear cocking serrations for easy slide racking and press checks. Both models are configured with three-dot iron sights with a tritium front night sight that aids in low light sight acquisition.

Micro red dot (MRD) models have a factory-milled slide to direct mount a micro red dot in a few minutes. The optics mount features a top plate that is removed to install a micro red dot and includes mounting screws. The optic mounting system is compatible with the Shield RMSc, Holosun K-series and is capable of accepting more than six micro red dot optics with similar footprints.

Configured with the smallest optics, the FN Reflex MRD is extremely low profile, making deep concealment even easier with reduced snag points under cover garments.”

Both versions of the Reflex are equipped with three-dot sight that have an orange circle tritium insert on the front blade. On the MRD, these would likely be secondary, as the Reflex is compatible with the RMSc, Holosun K-series, and several other optics utilizing that footprint.

Reflex Holster


In addition to the weapons themselves, FN America has made the Reflex Holster available. The Reflex Holster is a thin-profile, injection-molded Inside the Waist Band (IWB) rig designed to give Reflex-buyers an immediate carry option (though we expect to see numerous after-market options make themselves known with a quickness).
