    So does it have a true double trigger where the hammer isn’t cocked? Or is it just a pre-cocked Glock style trigger?

  • Anonymoose

    COMPLETE? There’s still no FNS-45!

    • BattleshipGrey

      They should get a spokesperson, Glock has R Lee Ermy, perhaps FNH should get the Soup-Nazi guy from Seinfeld: “NO 45 FOR YOU!!”

    • USMC03Vet

      Or 10mm

      🙂

  • SM

    Knock offs? More like competition. Everyone wins.

  • USMC03Vet

    I want to shoot this against the SIG 320 compact.

  • john huscio

    No compact 45, no want.

  • Bill

    The GLOCK 19 is like the Colt Commander: a good size compromise that can do anything from duty use to deep cover. It may not be the perfect fit for every situation, but it is a fit for every situation.
