You're missing a suppressor.

Great looking pistol, with or without a suppressor.

Marcus was your gun filthy dirty when you got it? The barrel on mine wasn't even clean. Looks like they fired quite a few shots thru it at the factory.

Not necessarily. For certain high-level duty firearms, they do shoot more than 1-5 rounds through it. I am not discarding what you're saying, though, mrme.
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.

Kills me to report this but SOLD it over the weekend. Couldn't resist a
profit. I have already ordered another one though.

The Barrel Scrarches. There are dark marks around the barrel opening in the slide that won't come off so I take it it was part of the coating from the barrel.

"polished" feed ramp and somewhat around the chamber opening:

I hope this is supported enough for .45 +P rounds?

LOl that's the rubber mat I clean guns on :) resists most if not all chemicals unless you let it sit on it for awhile. Fairly thick and durable. It's printing press mat, and they have scrap rolls of it my dad gets from a neighbor for free :)

Besides the obvious beauty, how is the pistol for all day carry? Is it too heavy with a loaded magazine?

Picked mine up last week. This thing is sweeeeet. Eats anything I feed it and the SA trigger pull out of the box was smooth and breaks at 3lbs. The DA pull is a little long and 7 lbs. but still managable. I mounted one of my Insight MRDS's and love it. The only down side is it sits so high you don't get a good co-witness with the open sights. I have a Trijicon which co-witnesses perfectly but like the Insight better. I don't have a holstger for it yet so I am not using it for 3-gun yet or CCW. Blate-Tech is the only company I have found so far that does a left hand OWN and IWB holster. I have ordered one of each so I can use mine for competition and CCW. I will let you know if it is too heavy to carry all day once my holsters come in. I suspect it will be fine as I sometimes carry a 5" all steel, Springfield TRP Operator with full rail and have no complaints.

Her is a pic next to my current daily carry gun, a S&W M&P9mm that had the slide milled to accept an MRD. The fact that FN already milled the slide and added a threaded barrel got me to buy it.

Color coordination FTW, let us know how those holsters work. I've never liked my Bladetech Ultimate IWB for my FsN IOM

What did you not like about your Blade-Tech Ultimate IWB holster? I haven't found any other makers of an IWB that looks like it can be used with the FNP-45 Tactical "without" much modification.

Well, I dont know about the FNP-45T, but I know Cross Breed makes a FNP 45 Cross breed IWB, and since I love my Comp-Tac M-Tac for my Kimber, I'd imagine that a cross breed would be best for something the size and heft of the FNP 45.

I hate my BladeTech Ultimate IWB because it's attachment point is so flimsy and it shifts on my belt way way way way way too much. No maybe I'm not wearing my belt tight enough, which I highly doubt, but it slides, and takes different cants when whenever it wants to, and is just overall sub-par to me. I sincerely can not imagine carrying something like the FNP45(t) in one, much less a fullsize 1911 like my Kimber.

I now exclusively carry my Kimber, simply because I like the holster and carrying experience more than my IOM with bladetech, and considering the weight disparity between the two, you'd think I'd opt for the lighter gun...

I'm saving up for a FNP 45T and another FSN, this time the USG, because I want to mod the shit out of it, and also Comp-Tac makes an M-Tac for the USG so maybe I'll be able to carry it with some comfort.
