    Frame mainly.

    The FNX is slightly lighter as well and the slide is that of the FNP 40 USG.

    And a safety/decocker that doesn't eat everything it comes in contact with.

    My current FNP 9 USG loves a steady diet of leather and flesh.

    Mine isn't bad. It is a little sharper than I'd like, but it's not taking out leather from my holster.

    The only thing I'd like to see in the FNX's and FNP-45's is the decocker/safety to be tapered to better fit the contour of the gun/curvature of it, or move it a touch higher as it does rub the top of my thumb some (enough so that I have a small spot rubbed open by it-but I'm forming a callas, so it might be fine after the next range session with the 45).

    Actually the slide on the FNX guns has been milled internally to reduce weight and hence recoil. A feature that was pointed out to me during the factory tour.

    I was wondering how they shaved over 2 ounces off of the gun. Thanks

    So making the pistol lighter reduces recoil? That seems backwards, but since it IS moving mass I guess I'll buy it. However, the FNP-9 and -40 already have such manageable recoil that it definitely isn't worth the upgrade. I would have much rather FN brought out something subcompact than another series of full-size pistols.

    FNX vs FNP

    Looks like the FNX has an extra Picanny rail underneath , the safety decocker does not stick out as much and the FNX is about 2 ounces lighter.

    I would rather have seen a match grade barrel added as was done on the Springfield XDM and the Taurus 24/7 OSS -- Or a more compact version would have been nice for an easier conceal carry option.
