The FNX-45 is the latest FN licensed product from Cybergun. Its a detailed, high quality replica of one of the most exciting pistols to hit the market in recent years. The FNX-45 is a direct descendant of the FNP-45 USG, which was a serious contender to be the replacement for the M9 in the US military under their Joint Combat Pistol program. Unfortunately, the program was cancelled, but FN further developed that prototype into the current FNX-45.
the FNX-45 is a palm-filling, full sized, gorgeously detailed gas blow back pistol. The slide is metal, as is the outer barrel, hammer, mag catch, slide catch, and slide lock lever. The metal slide has all the markings MOLDED into the slide, instead of cheaply lasered like some other licensed pistols. The frame is nylon polymer, with excellent checkering on the sides and serrations on the front and backstrap for a very comfortable, secure grip despite its size.
The backstrap is interchangeable, and two backstraps are provided. Both backstraps have lanyard loop holes.
The top of the FNX-45 slide is precut to accept a micro reflex sight...a very nice touch that doesnt require you buy awkward and expensive sight mounts in order to mount a dot sight. However, be careful which micro reflex sight you buy to fit this pistol. Not all micro will fit the mounting holes on the slide.
Every control on the FNX-45 is ambidextrous and identically laid out. The mag catch, slide release, frame safety/decocker are all fully ambidextrous. The iron sights at first glance are very tall and ungainly, but this is deliberate to allow them to be used in conjunction with a micro reflex sight.
The hop up is mounted on the inner barrel assembly, which requires you dismount the slide in order to adjust. The magazine is full metal with a plastic baseplate. The fill valve is in the rear of the magazine so you can fill the magazine with any length stem on your green gas bottle.
