FN received another phone call and recommended I ship the gun back to them. I wish they would've at least paid returned shipping... I'll advise of the outcome

I read somewhere that the FNP-45 was built to NATO ammunition specs, which are different than commercial specs. That is one of the big changes on the new FNX-45. It accepts a wider range of ammo types due to its "commercial grade chamber". It may be BS but I did read that somewhere.

FNH received my gun and after 2 weeks decided it was completely FUBAR and will send me a new one. They won't tell me what the problem is with it... that makes me a little nervous about getting another FNP 45 back. Also, I'm wondering why FNP is gone and replaced by FNX.

Been waiting over a month for the replacement. Update to come upon return of the gun.
Lefty with a G17, XDM-9, & FNP-45.

I really want a Mark 23 in the worst way

Well the FNP .45 is a boat anchor....but its made to carry on the hip not as a CCW.
Mine is very accurate and I have had O problems.

I've never shot an fnp, I think most people would think the gun is ugly, it appeals to me for some reason, I like the look of it. Hopefully I'll have the chance to shoot one someday.

Nice set....I just bought a FNX-45 Tactical in FDE. I should have it in my hands on Weds. Looking forward to shooting it.

Awesome gun. I needed a break in of around 500 rounds to really get it humming but it's bad ass.
