its comes with 3 mags 15 rounders suppresor ready and low recoil
Why wasn't this gun looked at for the government contract instead of colt? Seems to make at a lot of sense for that first shoot.
Did I mentionable want one in tan!
beats me but did i tell you how well it shoots?
Congrats on the new pistol.
I recently picked up an FNP-45 Competition. I'm a long time 1911 shooter and quite impressed with the FNP. Very easy to shoot and seems very accurate. Still deciding whether I like it or not but I can certainly see why they are so highly regarded.
I sold my 1911 to buy this its a better weapon 15 rounds plus its more durable
My 1911s won't be goin' anywhere. Got a little Kimber that's been with me for a dozen years now and is a sweet concealed carry solution.
Having 15 rounds is nice for a service pistol but I'm very comfortable with a 7+1 CC weapon and an extra magazine.
I can't speak to the durability as this isn't an issue I've ever had with my 1911 pistols and I'm too new to the FNP to comment intelligently.
I'm a 1911 guy no doubt but I have no clue how FN pistols have not taken off more than they have. They are simply great pistols. I've yet to see one that wouldn't eat anything that was fed to it and they are scary accurate.
not trying to start argument but ill take 45 rounds (3 mags) plus a gun the will shoot dirty
I just sold my brand new FNX-45 Tac on fri
Congrats on the gun! I have the fnp .45 and really like it! But I still love my 1911's way more. Dont get me wrong the FN is a great gun, but the 1911 has 100 years of reliable, third reich and commie stoppin' history behind it! And the new tupperware cannot say that! LOL
well ill say i carry way more ammo with me 45 rounds versus 21/24 plus "the tupperware has been proven ill stick with the proven tupperware in a fire fight( hope never have to prove it again) get your 1911s muddy and see how it functions
Anyone would choose more ammo than less but you've stated categorically that the FNX is a better gun than the 1911 and this is a generalisation that simply won't hold across the board.
What usage do you refer to? My reference was to concealed carry which represents the vast majority of my firearm usage. Packing a large FNX/FNP with two double stack mags in a concealed manner just isn't going to happen during six months per year in my reality.
A compact 1911 is easily concealed in most scenarios and the reduced ammo available is probably going to be sufficient in any encounter I might have. I'm no longer LE, just a regular ol' citizen. Eight rounds with 7 to back is reasonable. And I'll always have this as its easy to carry and go about my daily business with. I can't say the same for the large FNP which will limit certain things I can do or places I might go because the various methods of concealing the weapon are fewer than with a compact 1911.
A friend and I ran over 500 rounds through my Kimber one day at the range several years ago just to see how long the little booger would shoot. I call the pistol "Mikey" as it seems to eat most anything without complaint. And it did just fine with a variety of jacketed and lead RN. The bucket of ammo used was from my friend's first batches off his new-at-the-time Dillon which he was learning how to set up.
I've the utmost confidence in my 1911s and I'm sure I'll grow to feel the same regarding the FNP-45 but it has to earn the respect as the 1911s have done.
I will use the FNP as a field weapon and it will be the one on the nightstand once I get better with it. It would be the weapon I would choose in a combat or SHTF scenario. In such circumstances I believe it would be the better choice when compared to a 1911.
I don't consider one better than the other... simply different tools for different jobs and I think they're both very good at doing what they were designed to do.
They're (FN) great pistols but until I see one 100 years old I wont say they are better than a 1911. Same test I use for any handgun.
Agreed. And if I can manage to hang on until 159 years of age I'll get back to ya on that
OK then..I'll be waiting
well people ill say i should have said in my opinion sorry if i ruffled some feathers
