I am really, really impressed by the FN FNX .45ACP. It is one of the very finest .45ACP polymer frame pistols I've ever shot. Hope this video helps introduce it.
Any of you own a FN FXP?
What do you think of it?

Love my FNX 9. Never shot the .45, but want to. I recently discovered a problem though. If you rail the snot out of it for a few hundred rounds, the double action trigger pull no longer works. You can pull the trigger all the way back against the frame, and it'll take a second to actually fire off. I have not yet diagnosed it, as I do not have the bank account that allows too many 400+ round range days. After a minute of cool down, the trigger worked again. I was actually looking at the FNX 45 as a duty gun replacement (currently sig 220), but no level III holster yet (that i know of). Cool vid, cool gun!
What do you mean by "rail the snot out of it for a few hundred rounds"?
^ no cool down. I have a whole bunch of mags for it, and was shooting a bunch of steel. The gun got pretty toasty. I'm only guessing the heat may have something to do with it since the trigger was fine after a few minutes of cool down. It just worries me because all of my other guns have been that hot, and dont care in the least.
Still have no idea what you are trying to say...try again.
^ bingo. I love the heck out of the gun. The FNX 45 was going to replace my sig 220 as a duty gun, until I had that problem. "Hang fire" is the way to describe it (it's been a long day, my descriptions were lacking). I could pull the trigger all the way back to the frame and hold it. A second later, it would fire. It would still perform perfectly in single action mode though. I still carry it from time to time, as it is an excellent gun when it isnt too hot. Just isnt quite duty gun material. I wonder if the FNP's had the issue?
OK, thanks for being more clear.
I skimmed through the whole thread, seems there is nothing to it but some pretty idiotic speculations without a whole lot of substance.
This is all from over a year ago, by the way.
I am not sure who would actually ever be in a situation where they are putting 800 rounds through it at one time to begin with.
Are those 15 rd mags? 15+1 total?
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
Yes, the magazines hold 15 rounds, and you can put one in the chamber.
Total capacity: 15+1
One of the highest capacity .45ACP semi-autos on the market, to my knowledge.
I'm not too worried about railing the snot out of it as my interest would be for EDC. The guy who had the problem after leaving it in the sun for 20 minutes booths me some as it can get pretty hot here in Florida.
Still have never heard the expressing "railing the snot out of it"
Apparently that means, "Shoot a ton of ammo through it in one session."
From everything I can tell, the "doesn't work when too hot" thing is not an actual issue.
