I own the fns 40 and just purchased the fns 9. The sights on the 40 appear to be identical to the 9 however they are not near as bright. Does fn warranty cover the trijicon sights or should I take it to a gunsmith to have them replaced? There is a big difference.

I talked to fn service today and he informed me that trijicon night sights do fade with time. He also said I could send it in so they can evaluate the age of the weapon and determine if the fading is premature. 4 week turn around. hmmm?

Were trijicon night sights factory on the FNS-40? Mine are white and have NO illumination.
You can get both versions. The ones with night sights came out first (at least in my area).

Unless they're a defective run, a tritium sight should provide adequate illumination for 12-15 years. If they're that dim, you may just have bad sights since no FNS made could be anywhere near that age. Mine are incredible.

Trijicons were only standard on the first runs of the FNS (2012-ish). Subsequent runs have them as an optional feature, not a standard one.
