FNX-45


#41

The P320 .45 failed the market. Why did they think another low capacity .45 was a good idea? Ever since Sig went to MecGar mags, I’ve had nothing it troubles with them.

If there was a was to disable a FNX safety, and make it solely a decocker (akin to a Sig P series pistol), I would recant my statement about needing an FNS-45.

Not really the P320 compact model is Glock 19 sized with 9 rounds. The regular sized is 10 rounds and tey are coming out with 12 round extended mags (supposedly). The market will grow as it gains popularity, I honestly find 15 round .45 acp pistols to be mostly impracticable. 10 rounds is right where I like it. Sigs plus side is its ability to change from subcompact to full sized. If they do an x5 in .45 it might have that high capacity though.

Yes! I love that comparison.

I struggled with the recoil because of how light it was, not enough weight to help balance that.

It’s on my bucket list! Probably for after the little one is out of daycare and diapers.

AJ told me thats not an issue any longer :rofl::rofl::rofl:


#46

Have you shot the Walther PPQ45? It sounds like that’s what your looking for!

That is a good point. That FNX has a snap to it!

When I was shopping, it was to replace my duty gun. Capacity was very important to me. I currently carry a G17 with 21rd mags. My G41 has +4 extensions on it… I’m just waiting on a sighting in my new RMR before I field it.

I will check that out. I carried a PPK/s for years as a CCW. I loved it. If the PPQ45 catches up with red dot compatibility and holsters, that could definitely be a contender for a new duty piece. I’ll keep watch on it and check one out when it comes available. Thanks for the tip.

I thought maybe I was just being a pansy but I agree with this. I didnt care for the pistol in 9mm or .45mm.


#52

Makes sense, .45 is not the best round if you want high capacity though. The FN and glock balanced weird for me due to the weight. I do want sig to release some extended mags though. But size is more important to me, Glock 19 sized pistols are pretty much the biggest pistols I own. Different strokes for different folks.

Have you looked at the HK45 full size or the Sig p227 (double stack .45 acp)?

I used to own a P227 TacOps. I loved the piss out of that gun, but it would not cycle my duty ammo. I sent it back several times, and finally got tired of being told I was wrong. I had 10 of the 14 round magazines, and seven of the 10 round magazine’s, and none of them worked 100%.

Here’s a short video of me trying to chamber Winchester Ranger 230 grain cartridges…


This occurred 3-4 times per magazine and was easy for me to demonstrate repeatedly.

While playing with the magazines I did discover two interesting facts…

1- The internal plastic base plate can be replaced with a flat P226 metal internal base plate. This grants the shooter +1 magazine capacity, without adding to the length of the magazine.

  1. The P14 mag springs are compatible with the P227 mag bodies. I didn’t play with a lot of available variations, but the fit was there, and anyone that had access to P14 springs should feel comfortable testing their performance in a P227.

I may reinvest in this endeavor again in the future. Sig used to make a phenomenal pistol.

Any idea if the p227 mags will work in a p320?


#55

I doubt it
The magazine release cuts are in a diffrent place


#56

That sucks


#57

The base pads are different, but the rest of the magazine is the same. A dremmel and a steady hand can make them compatible.
