The trigger group problem affected a low # of weapons, according to FN. If your cracks - they will pay for shipping, and replace the part with a beefier piece. Newer guns will have this piece in it - and won't suffer from this any longer.
Don't let the trigger problem that happened on some of them stop you from getting one!!! They are one helluva pistol and worth every cent! I got one recently (used) and it unfortunately was an earlier one and had the trigger housing problem.
They came to the door, picked it up, fixed it and even tweaked it for me..then delivered it right back to my door in speedy time. I was floored by the service and applaud them, it far surpasses any other gun customer service I've dealt with before.
It's a tight gun, feels and shoots great. I tried the Glocks, XD's, M&P's, etc, etc. None of them fit the bill like the FNP. I even pruchased a Walther P99 QA to compare it to. I'm selling the Walther and keeping the FNP.
