Yeah DA only, the trigger is HEAVY and LONG. Nice gun though. Looks like there is a different mold for this stock or perhaps an insert. I wasn't able to tell exactly, but there is a noticeable scribe mark or line where the decocker would normally go.
There would have to be a way to lighten the pull, but I suppose it depends on how the trigger pack looks in that particular gun.
It may not be able to shorten the pull though. My guess is it is similar to the DA/SA in the other FNPs where the trigger cocks the hammer and then lets it go. Only in this case it pulls back the firing pin until it releases it for the shot.
After looking at my DA/SA FNP-9, it would be very difficult to guess what to do to lighten the pull. Everything is packed in there so much; way different from my GLOCK. Trial and error are not the way to go. There are a few springs in there, but I don't think that I would shorten them or anything drastic. It may lighten up with use.
Thanks for the info guys. I will give FN a call. In the manual it says the DA only models are between 9-12 lbs compared to around 4-5 for the DA/SA. I bought it without seeing it b/c I loved my other FNP-9 so much. I got it just a few days ago - left overs from some overrun from a Law Enforcement order on just this model. It is brand new with a manufacturers date of 03/08. :shock:
It has (3) 15 rd LEO marked mags which are pretty cool. I don't know why with a manufacturers date of 03/08 it would still come with "Law Enforcement only" marked on the magazines unless they were for all 50 states? I gotta lighten the trigger down to at least 7 range though. I would guess it is at 11 or 12 currently which has got to move the gun some while pulling the trigger. It really takes that much effort! If anyone has a CZ, I would compare it to the DA trigger on that. Imagine that on every shot though and not just the first. :evil:
I could swear that my DA/SA is lightening up a little after dry firing a bit. Either that or I am building strength in my finger. It does move a bit as you say until you get used to the heavy pull. I do think that a DA gun like that should be around 8lb or less. a 12lb pull every time would be rough IMO.
i'm using my FNP-9M DAO for exercise. That 15lb trigger sure gives my trigger finger biceps a workout It does help me shoot my other guns though because if you can hold that DAO trigger steady you are going to shoot like butter with anything else.
Sorry to bring this thread back from the dead but I just got an FNP9-M today and found out it was the DAO version . Has anyone found out if the triggerpull can be lightened some or if it can be converted to SA/DA?
