Ruger seems to be a solid choice but I don't have much experience or knowledge of the SR-series. I do see the FNX getting a lot of love and they seem to be good value for the dollar.
In Canada, the FNX is going for over 1100 bucks.
At that price, I'll be getting an HK or Sig.

Yeah I already have a hk in my collection. I didn't have any rugers or fn's. Im really wanting a cz now. If I run across the hk45 at a good price in the future I might get one. I figured i would round out my collection for now. Def a cz, then FN on my list. Hk45 is really a dream gun for me but I can get the cz and FN for the price of the one hk. Plus its not like I don't have a usp 45 anyways.

Congrats on the pistol! Give us a range report! I like bothe the HK and the FN's, I have an FNP so hard choice there. But the Ruger should do well!

Thanks. I hope it does well since it is the first ruger I ever owned and a first impression is a lasting one, you know. So far I hear great reviews

By they the way I didn't go from just a hk to a ruger, I went from a hk to a ruger and 400 rounds of 45acp to shoot in my other 45s as well. And still have a couple hundred left over for my next purchase in a few months. Just saying

In that price bracket, the Sig 220 deserves a look. If your willing to bargain hunt a bit but still just have to buy Eurozone, the CZ97 probably shouldn't be ignored either.
I would agree 100% the 220 is a awesome gun an usually if you look around you an find one in the 650 range used. I was going to purchase the fnx but bought the sig instead and it has earned a very special place in my heart as an amazing 45.

I like my FNP-45 so well that I just bought his little brother...the FNX-9. The 9 holds 16+1....and shoots just as nice as the 45.

I have owned and shot both. In fact, I've had the FNX 45 and FNX 45 Tactical, a HK MK23 and now the HK45.

Short story: Hands down the HK is more well made and solid. The FN handguns feel flimsy/cheap in comparison. The BIG advantage of the FNX in .45ACP is the 15 round capacity. That's great, otherwise, the HK has it beat in every other way: build quality, ergonomics, accuracy, etc.

How many rounds is an HK45 recoil spring good for? HK parts in Canada are unobtainium. So, I thought maybe i should order one. I'm sure I'll need one by the time the new one shows up in 8 months.
