    New FNX 45 Tactical

    Hello All
    i'm looking for some opinions on a new (3 days old) FNX45 Tactical. After ordering a black FNX 45 Tactical on January 3rd and picked up January 7th I decided to run a box of rounds through it. After running 5 rounds through the gun I had a malfunction (feed issue) and had to manually clear and cycle the slide. The 6th shot resulted in a section of polymer coming free (left side of the hammer) and jammed between the hammer and the firing pin. After this occurred I cleared the gun and removed the slide to inspect. After removing the slide I noticed that the back left slide retainer guide was broken off and missing. Now with the slide removed I can see the area that the polymer section that jammed the hammer belonged (just to the inside of the left "broken" slide retainer guide). I have attached pictures.

    Has anyone on this forum seen a failure like this with the FNX 45 Tactical? I plan to visit Shooters Outpost tomorrow morning to show them the damage. This is my first handgun but my first FN. Extremly disappointed that I have spent $1100 on the handgun plus a trijicon RMR06 and an Osprey suppressor.

    Any thoughts on the situation would be appreciated.

    Thanks Everyone

    i have never seen that happen or anything similar to an FN pistol. i can't blame you i would be pretty pissed too.

    sucks even worse that it was brand new and on its first mission out.

    FN will definately make it right though.

    Thanks for the reply. I will call FN tomorrow. I will assume the entire lower will require replacement. Any idea how FN will deal with the serial number? Will they build a new lower with the same serial number?

    You will probably get a new pistol.

    Man that really sucks. I hope you contact FN ASAP and not worry about the place you purchased it from as they won't do anything. Hope FN replaces it or fixes it ASAP

    Sorry for your trouble with your new FNX 45T. Never seen that before but customer service should fix you right up. It might take a few weeks but in the end they will do what is right for you! Welcome to the forum.
