FNH USA’s FNP-45 Tactical
Since August is quickly turning into the Red Dot for Pistols optic month. I’ve decided take a quick look at a pistol I’ve had my eyes on for a bit, FNH USA’s FNP-45 Tactical. I’ve been looking at this pistol because its one of the only pistols out there that does not have to be retro fit for co-witness install of a micro red dot optic.
The FNP-45 Tactical was designed to sport a red dot optic on top. The mounting point has a protective cover on top which would be removed and replaced with the appropriate base plate for your red dot optic. So attaching a Trijicon RMR or Leupold Delta Point would be easy since these companies have bases readily available for the FNP-45 Tactical. Adjusting the red dot to be able to co-witness with the iron sights can be adjusted with adding shims.
Some of features with the FNP-45 Tactical which makes it a nice grab is the factory threaded barrel, completely ambidextrous controls, modular grip, and a 1913 rail for mounting accessories.
For me, this a tactical all in one package for a pistol (minus the cost for expensive optics of course). But with FNP-45 Tacticals going under or around $1,000 it makes it an affordable tactical choice. Hopefully here at Gunblog.com we’ll be able to get a hold of one and give you guys a full review.
