Consumer Review: FNH USA FNP-45 Tactical Review


When I first looked at the FNP-45 Tactical, I started counting the features. Wow. Ambidextrous safety, slide release, magazine release. Double-stack .45 ACP that fits my medium sized hand. It fires as first shot double action or single action. The ambidextrous safety also acts as a decocker. Perfection.

I have a suppressor, so the threaded barrel was a must. They didn’t stop there. The high profile Trijicon night sights prove that the folks at FNH USA were serious about this tactical weapon.

Tactical rail fits the tact light for night-time action. And if thats not enough, the cut and threaded the slide for holo sights, that just happens to co-witness the sights that are tall enough to use with the suppressor in place. The FDE polymer frame and cerakoted slide are simply too cool and look wonderful. OK… they didn’t stop there. It comes with three 15 round magazines and a velcro configurable padded case that is great for taking it all to the range. I estimated that this kit comes with about $600 worth of features that I would’ve spent. Though its not cheap, it comes as a high quality weapon system in .45 caliber. If I had decided to design the ideal tactical weapon, it would have been exactly like this one.

    I just picked mine up last week, it’s in FDE/TAN, so far (although I have not shot it yet) I love it. I’m waiting for my LCD/Booster from SWR to fit the RH thread. My USP had a LH thread.

    Good review. It and all the others I have read prompted me to purchase one for myself. All I can say is…AWESOME!! I take it to the range for the first time tomorrow, can’t wait. So far, all the reviews don’t do the pistol justice…it is indescribably more than words can capture. I have to second what everyone else has said, though. Feels great in the hand, pulls up nice, it’s rugged, solid, stout, well made, and so on. I look forward to shooting it tomorrow. If I can find this site again, I can tell you how it does on the range. if it shoots half as good as it looks, it will have been worth every cent.

    I don’t own one of those but did get to shoot one with a holo sight. Very nice gun. I am a fan of just about everything FN makes! Thoughtful design and high-quality fabrication make their guns a great value in my book.

  4. Great review. I’m pretty interested in this handgun. Thanks for the info.
