I am needing the measurement from the breech face on slide to the begining on optics cut. I am going to convert my standard fnx to a tactical model.

Homer, I have an FNX 45 tactical. I will measure it when I get off work in the morning!

Be sure to measure the removed cover also

These are the two main dimensions i need. And if you have access to a full index of drill please advise what size fits the two front locator pin holes.

I was going to volunteer to send you a plate.I would send you the measurements but the digital caliper I ordered hasn't ship yet. I will mail you my cover if you will send it back. FNs people are a pleasure to deal with. I bought my FN used the previous owner had bought it and fired a whole magazine through it. I called FN because I didn't have the right plate. They sent me a whole bag of them free.

One of my customers had one and was gracious enough to let me borrow it for a while. The measurement took me a while to get down and check. He is suppose to bring me the top cover tomorrow to check fit. All i have left to do is tap the 5-40 screw holes since I did not have tap on hand, but it should arrive tomorrow or Friday. Anyways thanks for everyones help and below are the measurement!!! Use 1/8 drill bit for rear holes and a number 46 for the front or it ends up being to tight.

Figured I would post and update to this project. I finally got some cerakote work done to it and a threaded barrel. I also want to thank everyone who helped me get these measurements, I really do appreciate it and that is why I posted the dimensions up here for others to find and use if they chose to take on this task themselves. Either way here are some pictures.

All that is missing is a color fill on the safety indicator and suppressor sights. I don't think I will bother cerakoting the base plates but hey it may drive me crazy.

Looks very nice, Homer. 

 

I've never even held a suppressed sidearm. 

 

What kinda weights on the suppressors are we talking about ? 

.

Since I am engaged in fantasy here, it would be good to know. 

 

In the unlikely event I had to hold presentation for a long period of time it might become an issue 

with my cervical spine problems.

 

As I told someone else, that is about the ultimate housegun...

That partictical supressor, tirant 45, is made of titanium and alluminum with a stainless steel blast baffle so it is pretty light and does not bother me to bad presenting the weapon supported with my elbow and sholder injuries. Unsupported may cause you to fatigue rather quickly and rapid fire is more of a challenge. For me it is more of a novelty, but i guess it i would serve well as a night stand gun

I have almost the same can, the to-rant 45m, so I can shorten mine and reduce a little weight if I want to. Even in the long config it is not bad like you said. The shorter config, while a bit louder, does make a bit of a difference.

That is sweet Marine. 

There is a lot of R&D going into suppressor design these days. 

 

I don't know if we have hit the brick wall of physics yet,

but I am hoping their will be a breakthrough in design that will allow much shorter

lengths and lighter weights. We may be bumping up against the laws of physics type thing,

where they have gotten about as short they can be and still get the sound down to

safe levels.  If I am TN bound (don't know yet) I would live to have one on an SBR. 

 

For these who run these type of sidearms, what does using the suressor due to the real and perceived recoil ?

 

Thanks,

John

the recoil is reduced reduced quite a bit the the problem is the clutch system on the supressor gives the gun a bounce that messes up my follow up shots and i habe yet to been able to train through that. Maybe with practice I can over come it? I dont know but it almost feel like the gun recoils back wards and and jumps forwards.
