WOOHOOO I finally got it!!!
I'll get pics and report up soon. I did go to the range and put a few down range.:smt023
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.
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.
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..
Anyone know if FN submitted the FNP-45 for California testing yet?
any updates to this thread?
it has now been featured in at least 3 gun magazines in the past 2 months so where are they?
i do not own a shootable 45acp so my collection is incomplete
don't like the looks of the xd45
don't neccesarily like the g21sf so I am waiting on this piece
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.:smt033
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.
