Good day:

I am new to FN and to this forum.

I competed in the Bianchi Cup this year and was fortunate to win a FNS 9 Longslide in the prize draws.

Well it was finally shipped to me ( I live outside of the USA) and I got it on Tuesday! Great gun!!

I normally shoot STI 2011's and I am looking to use this gun competitively in Production Division in IPSC, USPSA and Bianchi.

I have holster and mag pouches from Talon Tactical but need to change the sights as it is shooting low at 25 m.

Also, are there any recommended trigger mods, or will the trigger work it self in with time and rounds down range?

Any other tips, advice or help on how to make this a great competition gun?

Also, if I were going to carry it concealed, any holster suggestions? I see a lot of options for the compact and the 4 incher but not for this one with the 5 inch barrel

Thanks in advance

Ryan

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the FNS.

For the trigger, check out this thread. You may find it helpful.

I want a FNSL bad. I am jealous!

I will make you a deal, I will give you my FNS9 WITH a alien gear holster to conceal for your FNSL!
:wink:

Welcome to the forum! I shoot better with the FNS than anything. Out of my handguns it would be my choice for competition.

So I have had the FNS 9L for just over a week and have been doing some range work with it. I am getting it out of the Talon Tactical holster Dave Sevigny recommended with confortable speed and no malfunctions of any kind so far.
I have shot 555 rounds through it so far - using 115 grain Fiocchi FMJ and it functions flawlessly.
Originally I was shooting really low and then I worked out that I was going at my trigger too hard, so with a little concentration on my trigger manipulation I am shooting much much closed to POA now at 7, 10 and 15 m.
I haven't done any polishing yet but I followed the other advice in the thread that Akitainu recommended - I made sure it was cleaned thoroughly to start and then I generously oiled the places where the trigger bar touch the slide release and those rollers at the rear of the action group. I used G96 to clean and then CLP to oil those parts. (i normally use either Prolix or Mobil 1 as my lubricant)
more pictures soon.
Oh..I have new sights from Sevigny Performance, but I had ordered the plain black front sight..so I just ordered the fibre optic front sight for competition....looking forward to that!

Thanks!
