Brett from FNH came down to the last Vickers Advanced Carbine and Pistol Class in South Hill, VA and brought along some pretty trick toys.

I was really impressed with the new FNP-45 Military. It has a threaded barrel, adjustable backstrap, and is designed to accomodate a Trijicon Docter Optic red dot sight on the slide. The tritium sights are set high so that you may use them with a suppressor, and they will co-witness with the Docter Optic.

Noticed the ejected casings next to my right elbow in both pictures, and the lack of muzzle rise? Extremely controllable and accurate, and we flogged it to the point of needing gloves to come in contact with the slide, and it never missed a beat.

I want one! :?

The access panel is for the Trijicon Docter Optic red dot, which will co-witness with the raised irons.

7.0 MOA Docter® Red Dot Sight
The DOCTER® Sight is a red-dot reflex sight that easily
mounts in tandem with the Trijicon ACOG® Scopes. The
compact tubeless design allows for a low weight without sacrificing
performance.

The DOCTER® Sight offers a large field of view due to its
low magnification and is firmly factory-adjusted parallax-free to 40
yards. This adjustment ensures that parallax-related aiming errors
are minimized over a large distance range.

The optics consists of two firmly connected glass lenses. The
functionally important coating reflecting the aiming dot is applied
to one of the inside surfaces which provides maximum protection
against scratches. Additionally, the outer surfaces of the lenses
are antireflection coated with resistant layers.

All components and mounting elements exposed to mechanical stress
are made of high-grade materials, such as stainless steel and hard-
anodized aluminum alloys.

DOCTER® Sight is water-resistant, but not waterproof.
The DOCTER® Sight remains usable even if it is exposed to
moisture. The electronic and mechanical components are so designed
that they can be exposed to water.



Docter® is a trademark of Analytik Jena AG.

I think you're right man......if I get 3 I'll let you keep the 3rd at your house..... :lol:

Nope, didn't get to shoot your compact, but I'm looking forward to it, and the new full size when you get that one in too.

boy,. they let anyone in here huh? :D

so it is a seperate model then,... i'll have to talk to Smoke and see if he can upgrade me to one of those,. i knew i should have waited until i got home to buy my toys,.. but it is nice knowing that they are there waiting for me.

hell,.. i'll be happy if i can just get the barrel,. i'll get a laser to aim with for the quiet work.

i was actually thinking about getting that exact red dot for the PS90,. hopefully this military model will make it to the civi side for sale sometime soon,. Daddy needs a new .45 you know? (and a ETS present)

the full size FNP-9 shoots as soft as a cuddly kitten,.. and is way more accurate than i need it to be. mine ate at least one metric **** ton of the Winchester white box 100rd value packs from Wally world before i left,. never had a single problem with it. when i got it i did not know diddly squat about the FNP line and searching for info got me to stumble in here

anyways,. welcome to the board its a nice place :?
(yeah i know you been here a few months,. first time i seen ya here though)

Wow! Looks great. Very impressive.

I wonder what the $ tag will be on something like that?

Also, I wonder if civis will be able to purchase just the barrel? (obviously to put in in standard FNP45's)

My hats off to ya FNH!!

I hope its not too expensive. Info on this variation will be my #1 question in the next Q&A.

I really like the looks of that gun.

Hey guys -

First post here. Does it look to anyone that the front and rear dove-tail notches are the same on the non-USG FNP-45s? I'm wondering if maybe FN would offer an upgrade option to those tritium night sights for first gen FNP-45s.

If so, and if the threaded barrel can also be used in first gen FNP-45s, I can wait for those upgrades. I want an FNP-45 so badly it hurts.

Probably not for a while - but we can only speculate at the moment.

If U really want the features of the military, I'd wait.

That red dot sight looks like a winner. Combine that with a suppressor and you would have one fun weapon.
