      Well, it's finally out there. There's 5 on gunbroker now, here's one
      http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...?Item=91384824

      It's the most expensive listing, but it has an actual picture, not just a mfg. pic. Sure looks like a safety position, not just a decocker. Condition 1 option would be a plus.

      All I've seen on the net so far are the stainless units.

      I want a black one with night sights.

      The word I got was that the night sight versions will not be available for several months. Summertime at best.

      So I took the plunge.

      I should have it late next week.

      I'll post pics & RR when I can.

      "Late spring" was how it was phrased to me yesterday. The option was presented to me to get a non-night sight gun "sooner" and then add the night sights when they are available.

      The last thing I was going to do is wait for FN to release something again, look at the date I started this thread.

      I will probably add NS later, for now....:

      I hear you. I first shot the FNP last July/August when FNP came into town with a lot of their goodies. I've been waiting ever since.

      Congrats! I, on the other hand, am getting just a bit tired of waiting. I might just keep my CZ SP-01 Tactical (19+1, night sights) and start looking for something else.

      That's all subject to change when you post pictures and a detailed range report.

      I put up a post that compares the FNP45 and the FNP9. Not exactly a detailed RR, but my impressions after the 45's first outing.

      Yea, I know. I picked up a M&P 45 and added a set of the AmeriGlo night sights to it when I couldn't get the Trijicons. The M&P has been very accurate and reliable, but I still find myself wanting the FNP 45 in matte black and night sights. So, I'll wait.

      I just picked up a FN FNP-45 myself yesterday. Mine does not have night sights either and I have not had time to take it to the range yet. However, I have been wanting another .45 since I sold my H&K USP compact and since my local dealer was going out of business yesterday, and had just got the FN a couple days ago, I drooled over it until I finally called the wife and got permission to buy it. This will be my first FN but after hearing the high remarks about their products, I am very excited. I can add night sights at some later date. I will probably try and get at least 100 rounds down range on Sunday but since its Mother's Day and I have to work in the afternoon it may have to wait.

      fnp

      I have had an FNP since they came out, I just ordered a Blade-Tech holster for it and now I love it even more. Make sure you guys call FN because they will send you the new backstraps that fit better... i have put probably 200 rounds through and I love the way it shots..

      I haven't heard anything - but no way to know right now.

      With that upcoming microprint thing that CA is requiring - U will see many brands pull out, IMHO

      I'm interested in seeing one of those 1st hand. I bought a Pro-40 a while back but didn't really fool with it much till a couple months ago. I really like how it shoots and am really wanting to get my hands on a 45 to see if the feel is the same. If so I'd say I"ll add one.

      Gunbroker has a lot of them.
      Or go to www.fnhusa.com and go to the dealer locater, put in you zip code and see if any are in your area.

      I found a place near me that has several Black ones and Bi-tone ones.
      The manual safeties are out too now.
      IIRC the FDE ones will be released late this year or early next year.
      The USG's are available in Black and Bi-tone and you can get them with a Bladetech shooters pack for $660

      I couldn't stand it any longer and got the black DA/SA one.
      I took it to the range and put 200 rounds of 230 gr FMJ Magtech ammo through it in an hour with no malfunctions.
      IMO it has a good DA and SA trigger. The SA pull popped at 4.2 pounds. I haven't measured the DA pull yet, but would guess it is around 7 pounds or so.
      It is very balanced, even on the last shot. The recoil is sucked up nicely, it stays put in my hand shot after shot after shot.


      Three 14 round mags at 25 feet. Not that great but it's a new gun and I haven't had much practice with a pistol lately.
