The FN FNP was developed as a replacement of the commercially unsuccessful FN Forty-Nine. The FN FNP was produced by Fabrique Nationale in Belgium and its division in the USA. This FN FNP pistol has been adopted by the Spanish Navy Marines, where it replaces the old Llama M82 pistol. A small number of the FN FNP pistols are used by Belgium and US police. This pistol is also available for civilian customers. Civilian versions were marketed as Browning PRO.
