FN America’s new micro-compact pistols are the FN Reflex and Reflex MRD 9mm pistols. The pistols are available in both standard and MRD (micro red dot) configurations as well as both black and flat dark earth (FDE) finishes. The Reflex has an MSRP of $599, while the Reflex MRD with a slide cut to accept optics has an MSRP of $659.
The 9mm FN Reflexes have 5-pound single-action-only (SAO) triggers and cold hammer-forged barrels. Both are 1-inch thick and come with 11-round and 15-round magazines or two 10-round magazines.
Both feature an internal hammer design with reduced slide racking force, the ability to disassemble the pistol without pulling the trigger, and multiple redundant safeties within the fire control.
The FN Reflexes’ 3.3-inch-long barrels are housed within a 6.2-inch slide that has front and rear cocking serrations. Both models are configured with three-dot iron sights with a tritium front night sight.
Micro red dot (MRD) models have a factory-milled slide to direct mount a micro red dot. 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.
Other features include an oversized slide lock, low-profile reversible magazine release, and in-mold stippled texture in the palm swell.
The Reflex ships with two magazines. The 11-round magazine is outfitted with a pinky extension that enables most users to get a full hand grip on the frame. The 15-round extended magazine features a grip sleeve with the same in-mold stippled texture as the grip and extends about 1 inch from the bottom of the frame. Both pistols also ship with one flush-fit baseplate should shooters wish to swap out the pinky extension of the 11-round magazine.
