Funny that you said it would match the SCAR, that's exactly what I've been telling folks about mine. Did you get the tactical version??

but that wasnt the decider. i KNEW if i got the 9mm one it would be mine only as long as it took me to get past the 48hour wait before she claimed it.



i like 45acp better and the wife doesnt so i know she wont touch it. its going to make a great combo with the scar17



well maybe he is a good influence ive got more room in the gunsafe i can put a couple of ar15 back together in one piece now and sit em in the safe instead of the shelves in the back of the safe.

The 9mm version only holds 2 extra rounds in the magazine. You can hold 15 rounds of .45 with this gun but if 9mm is your preference then do what you feel more comfortable with.

lol i been wanting one since the fnp tacticals came out but the fnp had some issues i didnt like. the fnx fixed em. ive also got a ton of guns i really dont shoot or use but they were smoking deals at the time. i didnt lose any money selling em off for more modern stuff ill use.

ive slowly been modernizing my guns into things i would take into combat with modern capabilities. plus im also getting my optics inline so i have the same reticle whether im looking through my scar17 or my fnx45.

soon as fn makes non threaded barrels available im getting one of those to make it a bit easier to ccw. i like the threaded barrel as it gives more barrel length for better velocity but i also want a little shorter barrel for better concealment

The threaded barrel is one of the reasons I didn't want the tactical. Goes against the grain but I'll never use it for it's intended purpose so I figured, why get it. Sounds like you have a heck of a collection, I'm really just getting started myself.

can still put a comp on it. but the extra barrel length lets you take full advantage of the 45acp case capacity and squeeze out a extra few fps. if your going to use a optic the tactical is a no brainer as the machining for the optic night sights and mounting plate is worth it. if your never going to use a optic then the regular fnx

Sometimes we set up a reflex course and go through a few drills. I wanna be able to draw the 45 from a holster but if it had a optic is a holster even made for one??
