I have the FNP .45 in black slide dark earth model. I have put 300 rounds through it and love it so far, no malfunctions the feel is great, I switched out the backstrap with one they give you. The recoil is smooth and the accuracy is quite good. at 10-50 yrds I can keep all rounds within the black circle on a standard pistol target. Why FN can make a 15 round .45 clip yet none of the manufactures that do .45 carbines can(without a conversion) is beyond me. I have it for my home defense handgun with 2 15 and 2 14 rnd clips. I got the shooters pack which comes with a paddle holster and the 3 clips and carry case for 570. I should have saved up some more and got the tactical model and may switch the one I have for it in the future but so far it has perfomed above my expectations.
Edit: This is the site I ordered the gun from
