I took a look at the site, and he does to mention being able to perform a trigger job on a FNS. Have not seen the outcome of one done by Midwest Gun Works, but they list the FNS as one they work on, and they are an authorized FNH repair center. I have not done it yet, but I plan on sending my FNS-9L there.

Mine has settled in just fine. Smooth pull, crisp break, and a nice reset. It just takes some time and patience (some dry fires at night while watching tv, proper cleaning, and of course, quality time at the range with a few hundred rounds) to get where most people want it.

I emailed Midwest Gun Works today and they replied saying they don't do anything to the fns trigger as it isn't very workable.

I sanded (1500grt) and polished (Mother's Mag) the striker block to help take the grit out. I plan on polishing the trigger bar where it touches the slide stop as well. Mine breaks right at 5lbs and is very smooth.

Just curious. I noticed at the FN site that they give a pull weight rating of 5.5 - 7.7# for the FNS, which is exactly the same for XD/XDm pistols. They do not give a pull weight rating for the 9L. Is there any difference? :wink:

As far as I know, the LS uses the exact same FCG as the 4-inch. There was no re-engineering done to the trigger or the fire control...only the barrel and the slide.

My new FNS 9L had a trigger pull of right at #7. It was awful! After doing some of the work described in this forum, I was able to get the pull down to #5. More polishing and coil or two more off the striker spring and it should get down closer to #4. These triggers are really bad from the factory. For a carry gun they would be fine, but for a competition gun like the 9L they really should slick it up a bit.

Has anyone used a gun smith to do a trigger job on your FNS 9?
Found this online, wanted to know if anyone has used him. Bill Springfield - www.TriggerWork.net
I know quite a few guys who've use Bill on their H & K's and have nothing but good things to say. I haven't heard anything negative about him but all the work I've heard are on hammer fired pistols, nothing on strikers.

I own an FNS-9 and have about 1500 rounds through it. Trigger feels or felt fine until today, when I fired my friends new FNS-9c. In my opinion the trigger on the FNS-9c broke crisper, the reset was better and the trigger was just more consistent. I thought both pistols were exactly the same, except size. But the trigger on the 9c felt like FN had reworked it and made some improvements. It just felt better, and I think I shot it better too. I tried looking on the internet to see if there was difference in the triggers from the FNS-9 to the FNS-9c, but could find anything. Does anyone on this forum know if the triggers are the same, or if FN made some changes?

What did you search for to get trigger polishing on the FNS-9 on this site?
