The FN SLP proves once again that FN is among the world leaders in self-loading shotguns. Leveraging more than 100 years of autoloading shotgun engineering, the SLP was introduced in 2008 and was instantly recognized for performance and ingenuity as the 2009 Shotgun of the Year by The American Rifleman Magazine. Capable of firing eight rounds in less than one second, the SLP features ultra-reliable gas operation, a durable, matte black aircraft-grade alloy receiver, synthetic stock, an extended magazine tube, and fully-adjustable rifle sights. The standard SLP offers an 18" barrel with a 3" chamber and a hard-chromed bore. Checkered gripping panels on the forearm and grip, a premium non-slip recoil pad, and two steel sling swivel studs add to the shotgun's functionality. A top-mounted one-piece MIL-STD 1913 accessory rail provides for scopes and accessories.
