    Question FNP 45 non tactical, Small dent inner barrel!

    I just purchased a FNP 45 non tactical, took apart the gun as soon as i purchased to clean, took it to the range and brought it back for cleaning. as i looked down the barrel, i noticed a small dent approx right where the rifling begins. i can only see it at an angle in the light. is this normal? or would it be worth it to purchase a threaded barrel for it instead? The firearm functioned perfectly and all but its very concerning to see this little dent inside the barrel. its right above where FP is stamped underneath the barrel. Thanks for any input!

    My FNP45 Tactical has the same dimple in the barrel near where the FP stamp is. A few other people have mentioned having this flaw as well. I wouldnt say it is normal, but is certainly indicative of the level of FN's quality control.

    Does the dimple alter the functionality or flight of the round going through the barrel at all? I'm just seeing I should either replace the barrel or if its fine the way it is.

    I'm not sure, but I would assume it atleast effects the velocity a little bit. If you really want to spend $150 to get a barrel without this issue go ahead.
