    Softest shooting 45 I own; recoil is more like a 9.

    Ran 200 rounds yesterday flawlessly; it's very accurate and forgiving, easy to hold on target.

    It's not a cheap priced gun but for $650, it's a buy.

    I thought posting a photo of the new gun was mandatory, otherwise how are we supposed to believe you? ;)

    My FNX 45 has quickly become my favorite 45acp pistol.
    I'm left handed and appreciate a fully ambidextrous pistol.

    It's built super strong. The frame rails are much bigger than a Glock, plus they're replaceable too.

    Glock is 1980's technology and the new FNX 45 is today's technology.

    It's hard to beat 15 rounds of 45 acp.

    I agree; I've been a Glock man for years and wasn't aware of this pistol. I'm a lefty also and that was one of the reasons for my purchase but after going to the range, it's definitely a keeper.

    It's pretty nice
    The FNX40 is very soft shooting as well. I love the grip angle and texture. It points so naturally. Great pistols.

    I was expecting this gun to be be a winner when it came out and have heard good things. I cant wait to shot it to know first hand how good it is.

    Plus it has a standard rifled barrel that you can shoot lead through. I reload, so that's a big selling point for me.

    I have a FNX 9mm and a FNX 45, both with the stainless slide.
    Both are absolutely perfect in every way.

    I grew up on 1911 pistols and I like a hammer and a safety, so the new FNX is perfect.

    My Glocks, 1911's and HK's are just gathering dust now.

    Congrats, I have not tried the FNX but I have an FNP40 that is a real nice gun. FNH USA knows what they are doing.

    the FNX is an outstanding polymer platform for the 45

    Congrats!

    Could not agree more! I have several; FNP45, FNP45Tac, and a FNX45Tac. Nothing beats 15+1 in 45ACP.

    Not cheap but a great gun on par with HK in quality and reliability. I'm usually HK all they way when it comes to polymer guns but FN makes the only other poly .45 I'd own. It's a great gun indeed! Congratulations!

    :cool:

    Wish i had one, i bought a Glock 21 gen4. I didn't have enough time to save for the FNX-45 due to Sandy Hook so i bought the Glock21 with the money i had.
