First post on the forums and i'm going to be that guy screaming for help! Haha

I recently purchased an FNP 45 Tactical from an individual locally. The individual whom I purchased the pistol from has lost the mounting equipment that came with the firearm as well as the backstraps. I was able to purchase replacement backstraps from FNH USA direct. However, I have had absolutely zero luck purchasing the mounting hardware for the firearm.

I have a Docter Optic 2 en route to me as I type this message. I would love to have it properly mounted and ready for action ASAP. So my question for you all is this:

1. What are the odds that any of you good fellows have an extra Docter optic plate sitting around with your pistol? Perhaps you have no intentions of ever mounting an optic to your FNP/FNX tactical and won't use the plates, or perhaps you have a Trijicon RMR mounted and don't need the Docter plate for that reason. Whichever scenario it might be, I would LOVE the opportunity to acquire the appropriate plates from you.

2. Has anyone had any luck finding another plate that will properly mount the Docter optic to an FNP 45 Tactical? I cant find any reports across many hours of searching online. If theres another alternative out there i'll happily pursue it! Many plates are available for the optic itself but I haven't been able to confirm compatibility with the firearm, if that makes sense.

3. I have contacted L&M Precision Gun Works about making a custom mounting plate for me if i'm unable to locate an appropriate plate elsewhere. I know i'll wind up with a high quality mount at a reasonable price considering the work load to manufacture the optic plate ... But I would rather purchase something already made if possible!


Thanks for your help and for your patience!

FNH FNP 45 Tactical Sight Mounting Kit

Sold out, but I'd recommend getting on the email notification.

Thanks for for the link. I checked there first. My dillema is that FNH obviouslt manufactures these plates and therefore supplies Midwest Gun Works. The plates have been on backordered from FNH direct for well over a year.

Therefore, I see my only option being to purchase from an individual. Maybe I'm at a lack of patience... But im not willing to wait on something that has a past history of being unavailable. A year wait is enough to make me want to pursue other options!

What ever came of this? Did the OP find the plates? Did Jim make a plate for you? I've been looking for them as well!

I was fortunate enough to buy them from another FNX-Tactical owner on Armslist who wasn't using them. Had to pay a premium for them. But that was my only means of acquiring them after months of searching.

Good luck!
