    Range Report! New FNS-9 owner

    So today was my second time at a range with this gun. First time about a week ago was a disaster. Shot 84 rounds the first time and at least 25% of them were FTF or FTE. I also had issues with the magazine not locking back every time but once. Gun was very accurate when it did perform but that whole experience left me kind of disappointed. I came here, made an account and read and read and read. I probably went back 2 years through threads (whole lotta pages lol... I think I was on forum page 38 or so ) but I noticed a good many people having the same issues as I was having with a new FNS. So I took everyone's advice went and bought some 124gr +p gold dots and I racked the slide back probably 500 times or more while laying on the couch, also dry fired it probably about the same amount so my trigger feels noticeably better than when I first got it. Well anyways, now that I've got that out of the way, I went back to the range tonight, because my girlfriend wanted to shoot her new SR22 (badass little plinker by the way) so I brought my FNS along with me and had 24 124gr +p gold dots I could afford to waste and 17 115gr magtech FMJ's. I put my gold dots in first and fired all 24 without 1 malfunction then loaded the problematic mag techs that I had and not one problem either. I REALLY WANNA SAY that I have worked the kinks out tonight but I'm sure I won't know until I get at least 500 rounds or so through it, I'm currently at 125 total rounds through the gun. Moral of the story is, especially for new guys like me. Before getting discouraged that you're gun is not performing properly and cluttering this forum up with repeated threads come back and do some reading, the FNS is a great shooter!!! Glad to be on board!!

    Sorry about that, I'm posting from my phone and had no idea they were oversized. They should be good now right? What are the size limits for future reference?

    Hi,it seems some firearms have a break in period and some don't.
    My experience with the FNS 9 has been the opposite.Mine has been flawless from day one having shot around 1000 rounds total.
    Glad yours is working well now.

    Like Tim, my FNS-9 was flawless out of the box and I shoot 115 gr. rounds, mostly. My newish FNS-9C is running just as well, also without any issues for the first 600-800 rounds. Man, I love FN products!

    I am really happy you didn't give up! Fantastic shooting, by the way... those targets had a BAD day.

    I can't even find 9mm in a size other than 115grain but all three of my FN's have run 100% with it. The triggers just get better and better with more shooting too. Glad yours is improving because they are fantastic pistols worth owning and carrying.

    Mine was definitely more temperamental, it did not like 115gr AT ALL at first. That was PMC brass and magtech brass. My gun was a new unit that was built in mid 2013 though so it sat for a while. Might be why it needs a more thorough break in. But after I shot the 124gr Speer Gold dot's +p. It performed great. Thanks by the way!

    this was some good information
