- I think it's probably referring to an FN-built Browning GP35 High Power Ian Dunster 21:22, 2 May 2005 (UTC)
- Browning is owned by FN
Is it worth mentioning that the FN-HAR has been a staple assault rifle in the fictional Shadowrun Pen-and-Paper RPG since it's creation in the 80's?
FNP-40 and FNP-9
Someone should add a page for the FN FNP-9 and FNP-40 pistol. I would do it, but I am new to this and I am still learning how to do it properly. Severelyawesome 19:13, 2 April 2006 (UTC)
- Done. I created an FN FNP series page and redirected the 9, 9m and 40 pages to it. I did a bunch of refining over the past couple hours, but I stubbed it anyway because it likely needs more attention. If anyone feels otherwise, feel free to remove the stub.

i've added this as a separate page, because once racing history was added, the main page here would become too large anyway, so i avoided disrupting what careful reading showed to be an FN guns(?) page, and that was and is the companies primary activity.(and in itself a large topic.) I was not sure about categorisation, whether the category motorcycle manufacturer should be there or here, but put it there, FN (motorcycle). - FN was an innovator in the early motorcycle days.

FN Herstal <-> USRAC/Browning <-> Herstal Group
This articles makes it seem like FN Herstal is the parent company, with subsidairies Browning and US Repeating arms company. However, in reality, FN is a a subsidairy of Herstal, which in turn owns USRAC and Browning. So FN Herstal and USRAC/Browning are sister companies. all together they form the Herstal Group.
from the website www.fnherstal.com:
The Herstal Group includes Herstal, parent company and two main subsidiaries , FN HERSTAL, active in the Defense and Law Enforcement fields, and Browning / U.S. Repeating Arms Co., specializing in hunting /shooting marksmanship and outdoor sporting goods.
Will we rewrite the article to reflect this? --Boris Barowski 11:21, 27 August 2007 (UTC)
- Please feel free to better clarify the relationship. Arthurrh 16:17, 27 August 2007 (UTC)
- I took a crack at it. Hopefully it makes sense now. Arthurrh 19:24, 27 August 2007 (UTC)
Why isn't this article at FN Herstal? Not only is it what the company itself usually uses (second sentence: "The official company name is FN Herstal.") but it is also more commonly used (FN Herstal gets 158,000 Ghits while Fabrique Nationale only gets 69,900). Is there any reason why this shouldn't be moved? 184.108.40.206 (talk) 06:16, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
- You are correct. FN Herstal is much more commonly used by the company itself, and by others in general. Wikipedia:Naming conventions for company names says "Whenever possible, common usage is preferred". The example given is that DuPont is appropriate to be used for E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company. On this basis, it seems necessary to move this article to FN Herstal. Fabrique Nationale d'Herstal can continue to be noted in the summary.

Kind of surprising to see no mention of cars, a very brief of motorcycles and even more brief of trucks. I think it deserves more then just one sentence. FN cars had been made under license in Russia and Germany (AGA), took over Nagant from Imperia —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 12:40, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
Company type: 100% government owned
One may want and update the company type data from 'private' into 'state owned' either 'government firm' or the like. For: "Since 1997, Herstal Group has been 100% owned by the Walloon Region of Belgium."
