Eric from Moss Pawn & Gun is back on the range for this handgun review video. This time an exceptional fan favorite is being evaluated, the .45 Tactical Model FN FNX. This is a powerful and accurate handgun with a number of customizations that make this a greatly desirable firearm for protection and entertainment at the shooting range.
The gun comes with a threaded barrel and combat night sights and a 15 shot magazine.
Prior to the beginning of October 2012, the only alternatives within the FNX brand were the FNX 9 and the FNX 40 pistol. Variations that could be applied to the 2 handguns were merely aesthetic in nature, such as a matted finish for the slide. By the time the original FNX 45 came around, magazines were fitted with “witness holes,” small holes that enabled the shooter wielding the gun to have a better view of how much ammunition was still in the chamber. The .45 FNX Tactical specs are all available below.
