    Switching Slide from FNX45T to a FNX45 non tac?

    I have a FNX45 non tactical and wonder if it is possible to buy a slide for a FNX45T that will allow me to mount the optic?
    If so, where can a slide be purchased.
    Sorry if this has been discussed somewhere else, but my searches did not turn up any info.
    I love how the gun groups but these old eyeballs of mine could use some help!
    PS: I do not need a barrel change for the threaded extension.
    And yes, I've seen here where you can send your slide off for machining.

    Wow didn't know they came separately like that! There are some places that will mill your slide as well as an option. If you have the money, I'd get a new slide V. sending currently slide to be milled.

    My search-fu is weak (got all manner of replies for 'slide' and 'RMR' but not what I'm looking for); could you point a brother towards actual posts regarding where to have his slide sent off for machining? 'Cuz I've got to be honest - what you wrote could have come verbatim from me! I love the pistol but my old eyeballs need help. I neither need nor want a threaded barrel. But I have not found a source to machine my non-Tac slide for a RM06 RMR.

    MF2030, I stumbled across a link to machining the slide, somewhere on this forum site, but I can not resurrect it. Sorry!

    ed,

    if you watch midwest gun works they put those slides on sale from time to time. a month ago they had the complete tactical slide assembly for around $370 give or take ten bucks. it comes with the night sights also. if you can pick one up then you can sell the threaded barrel pretty easy and it would cost less than milling your standard slide.

    Roger dat, SD.

    I have checked out the MWGS site and saw that there was a complete black Tac slide available, but the price made me gag. Assuming that it shows up again for (to me, anyway) a more reasonable price, I'll jump on it. Guess I'll create a desktop URL shortcut so I can check it every day and jump if/when the price point is right.

    Thanks for the OOTB thinking; this kind of stuff keeps me coming here!
