I have not had a chance to go shoot it yet -- been chasing down the Docter first, then assembling it with great care...it is a great sight though -- have one on top of an ACOG on my black SCAR 16S - it is really great.
The dealer where I bought it has an indoor range, so I plan to shoot it this week or next (yard chores first - yuck) and sight the red dot in, then cut this big dog loose...! I'll post results then.
With a 5.3" barrel and 6" sight radius (sans Docter) it ought to be a shooter -- I plan to sight it in both ways, so we'll see!
This is a real nice gun and gun sight here - I am very pleased with it so far.
Damn you have a lot of restraint! I would of shot that thing in my back yard 5 minutes after returning home from the gun shop. I know, get it perfect, then shoot. Just saying, how do you do it? Ok, that said - enjoy. Very nice. :twisted:
This is the new FNP-45 Tactical model, just released commercially (and flying out of the gun cabinets as soon as they're open for business). They are commercially available, but you gotta move on it when you see it -- anyone who handles it is very likely to buy it on sight. Everyone I have shown it to has to handle it and sight out on it using the red dot. It is the same gun as the FNP-45 Military. 5.3" threaded barrel, 6" sight radius. 16 rounds of .45 ACP. High profile Trijicon night sights.
It is not special order only -- and mine cost $1040 plus tax -- you can get one for ~$1000 plus tax if you're in the right place at the right time....
I bought the first one I saw at my regular gun dealer. Usually I try and negotiate price some -- they did knock $29 off the sticker price, but to me, given the fact that people are paying $995 plus shipping and insurance, I got a price I was happy with. The gun I'm estatic about!
