FNX45 Tactical

Anyone have feedback on FN pistols? I've read about all I could online, and the FNX45 Tac has a couple of great features (15, safety/decocker). I have one on the way, and a Trijicon RM07 to stick on it should be here Tues. Always wanted to try a RDS on a pistol, so I'm taking the plunge.

Pics to follow once it lands.

Nice pistols, I've shot a few, one was the Tactical model with suppressor on it, pretty kewl. My only nit pick would be the grip size, it's a little large and squarish for smaller hands. If you have bigger hands, that wouldn't be an issue.

EDIT: I just realized who the OP is... yeah it will fit you just fine, enjoy!

LOL, yea. Me and 'small' are never in the same sentence. The wife has small hands, but she likes the P220, so this would be more for me.

Got the RM07 mounted up yesterday (don't have any pics just yet) and it turns out, I need contacts or something lol. The dot is nowhere near as crisp as I had hoped, but others see it differently, so I'm pretty sure it's me. Plenty good for combat shooting, but I won't be shooting for groups.

Also, working with a good friend on PNW, I've since set up a trust and have an Octane 45 HD on order. Looking forward to that!

Took the FNX out for the first time last night and put 100rds through her. Crazy accurate.

Had a couple of FTE and one time the slide didn't lock back on empty. All 3 were when the wife was shooting, so I'd guess they are grip related. Hoping the extractor loosens up a bit, as it was throwing up and straight back. One round the wife shot actually went forward to the left. All in all, it out-shoots me and is comfortable in my giant hands.

Looks like I'll need to send the Trijicon in though :( I have the same problem that I've read about online. It came from the factory VERY high, and I turned it down on the elevation until it started to get tight (manual says stay away from this area), and despite that, it's still shooting 2" high at 7yds, and 5" or so high at 15yds. Not enough travel to get it on target.
That being said, the RDS as a whole is amazing. I'm not half the shooter of most on here, but in quick succession I can make 3" groups at 10yds, and when I bench rested to see if the sight was off or me, I made my first ragged hole with 10 rounds. Good times.

I just picked one of these up, it's not the tactical model, but it's an amazing shooter. "Excuse me boys, do you all mind if we call the range cold so I can move my target out further?"
