FN Herstal 45 ACP w/Manual Safety/(2)14 Round & (1)15 Round
[47579 ]
by Shawn O Date Added: Sunday 18 December, 2011
This pistol is a great 45. I like the overall performance. However, as a high cap 45 it's a little thicker than my old WWII era 1911. But carrying almost twice the ammo takes up space so I guess you just have to settle for one or the other - slim with fewer shots or thick with more. I personally feel there is a good reason to have each type in my collection. So I have both!

The rest of the aspects of this pistol really make it a world class pistol. It's got a really heavy slide and barrel assembly that makes it feel good in your hand and it absorbs a lot of the recoil just as you would want a 45 to do. But the light weight polymer frame makes this pistol feel like it still weighs less than my 1911, even fully loaded.

The safety decock combo feature is really cool. I have never liked to manually decock my 1911. This feature takes all the reluctance to drop the hammer manually away from the equation.

In addition, this pistol has the new feature of a replaceable backstrap allowing you to fit the grip to your preference.
