About FN FNX 45 Tactical
The company Fabrique Nationale d'Herstal (French for: National Factory of Herstal) that self identifies as FN Herstal is a leading firearms producer located in Herstal, Belgium. This Belgian company, the FN, is the parent company of two US entities: FNH USA and FN Manufacturing and. The FN Manufacturing is located in Columbia and South Carolina.
The FN FNX 45 Tactical is a recoil-operated, double/single-action, semi-automatic pistol that was introduced by FN back in 2012. Just like its name suggests, the FN FNX 45 Tactical belongs to the FN’s FNX family of pistols and it’s a model that’s very popular among professional shooters. At the same time, this model is an upgraded version of another popular pistol made by the Belgian manufacturer, the FNP-45 Tactical. The pistol comes with a number of interesting tactical features, which it boasts on top of all the features present in the standard FNX-45 model.
The FNX 45 Tactical is a full-sized handgun with an overall length of 8.7 inches and the pistol’s barrel is 5.3 inches long. A handgun as big as the FN FNX-45 Tactical isn’t really suitable for everyday concealed carry, but it’s sure a pistol any competition shooter or on-duty professional will appreciate. The FNX-45 Tactical comes with a double-stack magazine which takes in up to 15+1 rounds of the powerful .45 ACP cartridge.
As the FNX-45 Tactical is a firearm intended for tactical purposes, it offers possibilities many other pistols don’t. One of these is an accessory rail, which lets you attach a tactical light or laser to your pistol. If you decide to make use of this feature, don’t forget to get yourself a well-made FNX 45 Tactical light-bearing holster. Another way to get the most out of the tactical potential of your pistol is through one of these FNX-45 Tactical red dot sights. Just keep in mind that you’ll also need a solid FNX 45 Tactical red dot holster. Another great tactical feature the pistol comes with is a compensator and height sights system.
A pistol as big as the FNX-45 Tac calls for open carry solutions (that is if your state allows you to carry this way). This model is most frequently carried in a FNX-45 Tactical OWB holster, but cross-draw and shoulder holsters are also a viable carry method. If you’re an armed professional, then you might also consider getting an FN FNX-45 Tactical duty or drop-leg holster. Of course, if you live in a state where open carry is not an option, you’ll need to look at other options. And there’s no better way to conceal carry your pistol than in a custom made FNX 45 Tactical IWB holster.
If you haven’t got your own FN FNX-45 Tactical pistol, you can do so through FN’s official website.

WILL A FNX45 TACTICAL HOLSTER FIT GLOCK 21?
Despite sharing the same caliber and having a similar silhouette, the G21 will not fit FNX45 Tactical holsters. Mainly because the Glock 21 is more than 0.5” longer and a bit slimmer. Meaning that your Glock 21 would not only stick out but would also not make sufficient contact with the walls of the holster and therefore would not be securely held in place. Therefore you will need to get a proper Glock 19 Concealed Carry Holster or G19 Open Carry Holster.
