    FNP-45 Tactical or FNX-45 Tactical?

    Given the current difficulty in finding a FNX-45 tactical, I have been wondering if I would regret getting a FNP-45 tactical, which seem to be slightly easier to find.

    Does anyone here have any experience with both? What would I lose out on (practically) if I chose the older gen FNP? I spoke with an FN employee at SHOT and he said the FNX simply had a redesigned feed ramp (i think) to allow a wider range of ammo to feed with no issues. Were there that many issues with the FNP's?

    Thanks for any first hand info and advice!

    I had a terrible break in period with my FNP-45 tactical. Lots of FTF and FTE. The damn thing would also eject the shells back and hit me in the head or worse go down my shirt burn me. Having said that, after about 400 rounds the thing runs flawlessly now suppressed and unsurpressed. I wouldn't hesitate to get another one.

    The FNX45T has a fully supported chamber where as the FNP does not. The FNX has a new size magazine to support longer sized ammo, hence the support for wider range of ammo.

    i don't understand this post. what is a barrel hood and why is the bevel a major plus? does the fnp not have a bevel?
