So I decided to inspect my weapon the other day..and noticed that I have the notch on the FCG. I assume that this is the cause of the craking of the FCG. Has anyone sent a un-cracked FCG with the notch back to FN to get a fix? Thanks for the input.

I bought my gun used (400 rds) and the previous owner had sent it in even though it wasn't cracked and had it replaced. I know of a few others that have as well.

Also, there is kind of 2 notches on the bad ones. I was confused by this at first. A good one should have no space between the sear and the housing near the middle of the housing.

I would like to see photo's of both side by side if anyone has them. That would be helpful :?

Hey Ship,

Can you give me the number for Bob? I'll give him a call since I heard from here that he is the go to guy. I sure do want this to be fixed. Thanks

If you do a seach on trigger group housing cracks, there's some pictures posted. My FNP9 had a larger notch than my FNP9M and it cracked. My M has couple thousand rds thru it with no problems.

I probably had less than 500 thru FNP9. Didn't even know it was cracked til I read about it on here and checked. It never malfunctioned. It's got about 2500 rds thru it since "fix".

That gives me a little peace in mind that it still functions with the crack. I would hate to be carrying it and have a major problem when I needed it most.

Forestranger is correct, there are some replacement FCG's that have a smaller notch (shorter in length), and it seems the latest replacements have had no notch at all next to the sear. The defective ones have had a much longer cut out area from the pictures I've seen.

My .40 has the smaller notch and has not had any sign of problems through ~700 rounds.
