    Shooting the FNX 45 and the FNX 45 Tactical: What are the REAL differences?

    For someone who has shot both, do you shoot the FNX 45 with the same accuracy? Is the trigger and recoil the same or very similar to the Tactical or what? For the $350-$400 difference in price, is there any difference is the shooting?

    Thanks,

    P

    I have not shot the Tac but if I am not mistaken it's the exact same gun just with a threaded barrel and higher mounted sight to see over a suppressor. (and ability to add a red dot) so shooting them should be the same. All internals are identical.

    x2 they shoot and feel the same. You might get a little more distance out of the tac with the slightly longer barrel..

    I've owned both and they are both scary accurate/awesome. Lets face it though, the threaded barrel is where it's at

    After you pay to mill the slide and for a threaded barrel you are ahead. I have considered looking for a FNP 45 competition model and adding a threaded barrel but I still would just be better off buying the tactical instead.

    What Lester said. Felt recoil is the same, trigger is at least very close (no noticeable difference IMO). Accuracy is pretty much the same. I do prefer the Tac's suppressor sights though.

    I would not purchase the FNP-45 as the barrel does not have the chamber support as the FNX and there are additional improvements as well. There are other issues as well so check out the FNP forum to find out. The FNX is a redesigned improved version of the FNP.
