Default Choice of a threaded pistol

Ive been thinkinng of getting a threaded pistol to eventually get a can for. I think I have come up with the three best possibilities. That is, the three best with out going the Dillinger route with the Nighthawk AAC. Here are my 3 possibilities that are about a third the Nighthawk.

Sig Sauer Tactical Operations TB
5.5" inch barrel, 8+1, ambi-safety, accessory rail

Sig Sauer Tactical Operations TB Carry (not advertised)
4.5 inch barrel (4.25" Commander slide), 8+1, ambi-safety, accessory rail

FNH FNP45 Tactical
5.3" inch barrel, 15+1, ambi-safety ambi-mag release ambi-slide stop, accessory rail, red dot panel

These all have more pros than cons. Tac Ops is a 1911, but has external extractor. Does this really make a difference, if its funtional I dont care. Tac Ops Carry is a commander 1911, makes it easier to carry concealed, but 5" is king. FNP45 is 15+1, good for round count, bad if I want to cc. Plus its is all ambi which is a plus cuz im left handed. The red dotis a bonus for cool factor.

So which one would you choose, and what was the pro that stood out that made you choose it.

Blasphemy! Taking a pic of the FN on a Hi-point box.

After handling the FN...I really like it. If there were any duty holsters available that accept the pistol w/ the light, I would buy the FN.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
