If you have completed your National Service or served in any branch of the South African military or police, the name Fabrique Nationale (FN) definitely has some bitter and sweet memories of basic training days involving some sort of rifle PT.

INFINITY: IPSC Standard gun .40 Smith & Wesson by Chris Blatherwick

The Sight Tracker does not hide its intentions. It is clear that the pistol is out to win matches. Infinity has taken the concept of firearm customisation to a completely new level. The modular patented lower frame and grip of the Sight Tracker were one of the biggest surprises. The unique frame design reduces the width significantly. The high-capacity double-stack pistol is slightly larger than a standard single-stack configuration, which means the thin frame allows the shooter to release the magazine easily. Its design, fit and finish are impeccable. The pistol looked fast and lethal, even when it was on the table with the slide locked back. One cannot help but notice that this is not a lightweight scandium frame pistol you are holding, but rather a carbon-steel monster with a one-track mind that dares you to go faster and faster.
