FNP 45 compared to the FNP 45 TACTICAL

Post by jhoser2000 » 23 Jan 2012, 12:35

I have kinda of a dumb question concerning the FN 45's. I know the basic differences in the two weapons, like the tactical having the threaded barrel, the high night sights, and the adapters for the red dot. I guess my question is is there any other differences between the two guns besides what I have stated. Thanks for any help.

Aside from what you mentioned, the FNP-45T comes with three 15 round magazines and a more robust carrying case.

I bought a new FNP 45 last weekend at a gun show. It is not tactical or competition. However, it came with night sights (they had them with regular sights as well) and 3 15 round mags. I have been meaning to ask if they changed what was included since there was problems with some of the 14 rounders.

Guess I shouldn't have typed that in a hurry. The competition and FNP-45T have different trigger groups than the standard USG. I don't know the weight difference between the C and the T, but the T's is supposedly ligther than the USG

I noticed a difference between my old USG and a friend's tac. The reset was shorter but the SA break was much longer. Trigger weight felt about the same, though I was working from muscle memory at that point since I didn't have my .45 with me at the time.
