Took the new FNS-9 out for its first range visit last Friday.
Man, what a sweet shooter...no FTFs or FTEs, ran flawlessly out of the box.
Did have one cause for concern though. After the first 3 mags the slide and take down lever were rather warm.
After putting another 100rds down range, I couldn't even touch them.
Was a little worried, as this has not happened with any of my other pistols...and my thumbs forward grip puts it right on top of the take down lever.
So, I came home and did a little research both here on the FNForum and online.
Seems it is a semi-common issue...couldn't find any real practical resolution other than let it cool down.
So, I took it back out again yesterday.
Again, it ran flawlessly. However, I decided to take it a little slower and not sling so much lead so quickly, and I left the slide back while reloading the mags between sets.
It did make a vast difference...while it did still get warm, it was easily manageable.
Also, I read there was an issue with pre-2014 FNS-9s...mine has a package date of 8/2013.
Would appreciate any additional information some of you may have on this.
Thanks for reading and have a swell day!
