Yes again the entire .45 ACP COL FTF has reared its ugly head..again. I avoided Winchester for the past few years, Remington was doing well for me. But the store was out of everything, and I needed ammo right then, so two white boxes of Winchester it was.....with expected results (not being able to use my $700 gun)
Frustration is key here, especially when FN's WEBSITE lists on their FAQs
12. Q. What type of ammunition should I use in my FNP-45?
A. FNP-45 handguns are chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge and are compatible with all ammunition loaded to U.S. Industry Standards, including +P and hollow-point loads. .45 ACP ammunition manufactured in accordance with NATO, U.S., SAAMI, or CIP standards is within the design limits and known to function in the handgun.
BUT as we all know this is not the case....not even close.
So my question -- HAS FN recalled these magazines that FAILED to maintain their own published standards? Are they offering replacements that maintain industry COL standards?
My test Fire Date was 9-11-09 -- Correction -- not 2001, habit typing...sorry.
