The Hellfire utilizes the same frame as the Patriot, with the exception of a magwell.
The magwell alone makes a noticeable difference in my grip. Because of the magwell and the undercut trigger guard, I’m able to get the highest grip possible on the gun.
The magwell also aids in locking in a tighter grip.
The sights used on the Hellfire are suppressor-height sights from Night Fision. The front sight contains a Tritium insert that ALWAYS glows and the rear sight is blacked-out. This combination makes for fast target acquisition.
The Holosun HS507C Multi-Reticle Circle Dot Open Reflex Sight is made to be mounted on handguns. Its Solar Failsafe system ensures the optic will continue to be powered even in the event of a dead battery.
The HS507C also features Law Enforcement Model (LEM) programming that provides "Lock Mode," and "Manual Mode." Lock Mode will keep accidental button presses from happening when the weapon is being drawn or holstered and Manual Mode gives the user full control over reticle brightness.
As expected, after several magazines I had zero malfunctions.
Being that these are brand new guns, I plan on getting more trigger time on both during each of my range sessions. I’ll follow up with more of a longer-term report once we get around the 1,000-round mark.
“The FX-19 line of pistols have successfully completed a 15,000 round durability test, as outlined in US ARMY TOP 3-2-045, along with the NATO standard drop test." – Faxon Firearms
Although the FX-19 pistols from Faxon come with a hefty price tag, they’re not that far off after you’ve upgraded a stock Glock 19.
If you add up the price of a Glock 19, new sights, a new trigger, and a match-grade barrel, you’re not far from an FX19 Patriot.
With the FX 19 pistols, there is no need to upgrade anything or send them out for custom work. That’s done for you out of the box.
These guns are absolutely gorgeous, but my favorite is the Hellfire Pistol. Stay tuned for more on these two beauties.
