I just ordered a new one and will get it in 2-3 business days. Just wondering if magazine issues have been the main problem with it? A search of the forum seemed to indicate that it was.

Thanks,

Pat

I have no mag issues in about 2k rounds. Using the same 3 that came with it. Never cleaned the internals yet. Have a bunch in box just in case :D

I sprayed my frames out when I received them while moving the magazine release back and forth and my mags fall right out:? They were a little sticky at first

Both my FNX and FNXT drop empty mags no problem. They were a bit stiff at first but now they're nice and smooth.

Yes, that does seem to be the major issue. Mine works fine now and I only have 300 rounds through it so far (was stiff and the mags didn't drop free 100% of the time initially due to the mag release I believe).

Mag release button on mine was a little tough at first. Never had an issue with the mags dropping.
That's what I meant when I said stiff, especially the right side. Clarity has never been one of my finer points.

What is the specific mag issue with this gun? It's a tactical only thing?

Its the only FN I own but my mags do not drop free, numerous hours spent manipulating the mag release and 300 rounds.
