After several months of deciding, I bought the FNP-45 Tactical in Flat Dark Earth (Tan & Brown)
versus the Black color, because the FDE appeared to be a better finish,in April 2011. This pistol is of first class Quality and I could not be more pleased with it. (I own a Kimber Desert Warrior with respect to 1911's, and had not seen anything in the 1911 class that I wanted more than the FNP-45T.) And the 3 each 15 round magazines was of considerable influence, whereas Kimber supplies one poor quality .45 ACP magazine.
