FN .45 Tactical

Post by toyslr » 06 Apr 2010, 19:31

Just got it today:

My first impression is that it is a GREAT looking weapon platform. Quaility
fit and finish. GREAT case with additional mags and pockets to accomadate
all the extra gear. The only draw back is when I racked the slide and found
the barrell scratched. It looks like normal wear marks but on a new weapon?

:drool: It's beautiful. Wish they had black. I'm fresh out of money, but maybe you'd take a trade? I've got a few toes left...

I'm not a big FDE tacticool shooter, but that is a really buff firearm.

Good stuff. Those wear marks are probably just a finishing issue. I like the case, reminds me of the USP cloth cases.

Be sure to post a range report!

Congrats! I'd rather a black one also. But good is good no matter what the color. Let us all know how it shoots.

yeah they do, with cool get all over the gun, magazine and your house white styrofoam!. SCars I've been told come in plain jane cardboard boxes.

I don't understand the marketing behind it. Even the standard FNP lineup comes in nice hard cases. I mean not super nice cases, but certainly better than cardboard..

Mine will be here Monday. I'm not an FDE guy, and who knows when and if they will offer black. I can always have it refinished.

Yes, that is the one from Clydes. Black would be better but it looks pretty damn impressive as is.
The case is badass! If the SCAR rolled in a case like that, it would be hard to beat.
Most of the distributors have theres allocated out to FN stocking dealers, so it could be some time
before we see additional pieces. I still have not figured out what I'm doing with it because I would
love to keep one of the black scars, i just got in.
DAYUM I hate decisions. Must be the way women feel shoe shopping!! lol

Beautiful. I'm hoping mine will show up at my dealer before the weekend.

Those "smileys" on the barrel should be from the test firing before it left the factory.

Now put a micro red dot on there! Speaking of that, I'd like to put a MRDS on mine (to match the TAN/FDE). Does anyone know if it will work, I'd be concerned with the relative height compared to a RMR/Docter, and I think you may not be able to cowitness with the irons with an MRDS.

Maybe they put fifty or a hundred rounds through the tacticals before shipping. Kind of like what Sig does with their 226 Navys.

I gotta say, I am impressed with the gun. I will have to look at it in person, but this may be something I buy my first suppressor for.

Cool case, but it can not accommodate additional mags. I keep my FNP-45 is a soft case with 7 mags...

Can you take more pics of the sights?

I really need to sell my .45....

Also looks like the sleeve for the lock will accommodate a suppressor quite nicely. ;)

Why - ???

it's just the USG 45 with threaded barrel, and goofy sights for $600 more. I'll keep my money in my pocket and keep my new USG, which will shoot as good as that. But, if you have money to burn are blessed and living the high life, sure why not go for it. If I had unlimited funds it would be on my wish list for sure - buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuutttttt

-$1000 yeah right -
