The fnx 45 is the culmination of many years of product innovation and advanced engineering techniques.Modeled after the fnx 45 service pistol introduced in 2007 under the U.S. Joint Combat Pistol Program, the FNX(tm)-45 is a double-action/single-action hammer-driven pistol with highly enhanced ergonomics.The magazine release, manual safety/decocking levers and slide stop lever are fully ambidextrous, allowing for easy operation from either side.
The slide and barrel are made of stainless steel.The FNX(tm),-45’s checkered frame is made of polymer and has many interchangeable backstraps that have lanyard eyelets.The underside of the FNX(tm)-45 can accept tactical lights or lasers thanks to a MIL-STD-1913 mounting bracket.
All pistols, except for some law enforcement models, have ambidextrous safety/decocking and magazine releases.Three extra backstraps are included in the case and one is shipped with the handgun.Two different thicknesses of backstraps are included with the handgun, while three additional are in the case.
Field stripping involves locking the slide at the rear, turning the takedown lever counterclockwise ninety degrees, and then releasing the slide stop. The slide will be gently pushed out of the frame by allowing it to release the slide stop.To complete field stripping, lock the slide at the rear and rotate the takedown lever clockwise ninety degrees. Then release the slide stop while gently pushing the slide forward from the frame.

It was a combination of two previous programs, the Army’s Future Handgun System and the Special Operations Forces Combat Pistol.
