    Some questions about FNX 45 TAC

    I just picked up my new FNX 45 TAC today, When I got it home; after closer inspection, and comparing it to my FNX 45 standard model, I noticed a few things:

    1. The slide to frame fit on the TAC is a little looser than the standard model......at the rear of the slide you can move the slide sideways a small amount (about the thickness of a fat business card) and if you shake the gun back and forth in your hands it rattles a little bit........I know there has to be some play in the slide to frame fit for proper function, but the only reason I mention this is because it rattles a little more than my standard FNX 45........Is this anything to be concerned about???


    2. I don't have a small enough scale to accurately weigh a firearm, but I swear the TAC model is noticeably LIGHTER than the standard model (I even asked the wife to hold each one....she agreed).......Of course that's not a problem; just figured I get your thoughts on this......OR AM I CRAZY!

    I also saw those specs on the FNH website before I posted anything....but I swear it feels noticeably lighter.

    I haven't shot it yet........I literally just picked it up a few hours ago.

    It weighs 2lbs, 2oz unloaded with a Trijicon RMR attached. 2lb, 13oz loaded.

    I have a little play in the rear of the slide too.

    LOL.....You know I was actually going to say "both unloaded/with mags in" in my original post, but I figured no one would actually think I could be that stupid.
