I put a steel guide rod , night sites , a 3.5lb ghost connector, extended slide release , and polished up all my trigger parts along with getting some us army logo mag plates and slide plate then did the simple engraving color inlay 2 make the letters stand out....
And its smooth light trigger rapid fire is so awesome with faster trigger reset and the steel guide rod is heavy so it keeps muzzle down and the steel won't bend or break due 2 heat from the gun like the factory plastic guide rod will...

The recoil to me is nothing. I thought it would be more, but very manageable!

A buddy of mine as a glock 23 and i out shot him with it . the glock 23 is great. I do recommend getting better sights though the factories are mediocre at best imo.

I recently picked up a fnp .45 I know your looking at a fnx .40 but they are basicly the same besides the grip texture and a few other small things. With that said the quality of Fn is the best I have seen in a polymer gun besides a H&K, which seems rather the smae except the FN is much cheaper and built in the U.S. On the other hand a Glock is a fine pistol and is widly used. But in a way the quality and craftsminship is not in the same league. FN is much like an H&K, while I have found very little differanc between my cheap sigma .40 (which I love ) and a glock, other than a lighter trigger. Just my opinion
