    What a deal! That would put a FNP .45 at around $425-$450! Just don't try to shoot Winchester White Box ammo through it.

    I tend to take everything I read on the internet with a large grain of salt, however I have read on the FN Forum of some people having problems and others having none with shooting WWB through their FNP 45s. Apparently FN says that WWB is slightly longer than other .45 rounds and this is what causes issues. I did measure a WWB round and it came out to 1.27" as opposed to a Remington JHP (both 230gr) which measured 1.24", I didn't have another FMJ round for comparison. Also if you go to post 69 of this thread http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1201312&page=3 there is a link to a video Jakemug made showing the issues he has had with the mags for his FNP 45 and WWB.
    For what it is worth, after next payday if there is anything left over after paying bills I plan to order an FNP 45 myself. There are enough other options for .45 ammo out there that I am not too worried about if it has problems with one in particular.
