    I have put around 1000 rounds through my FNS 9mm with zero malfunctions. I never experienced any "grittiness". It is smooth and breaks clean. It did improve over time and seems lighter than the 5 lbs published specs. When I miss it is not due to the trigger. I think trigger preferences are subjective and relative. I like the DA mode on my FNX much more than the DA mode on the HK USP I traded for it and I like the SA mode trigger on my FNX 9 better than the FNS....but the FNS is a striker fired DA pistol not a SA pistol. Even with a partially preloaded striker it is going to take some effort to fully cock the striker and the spring needs to be strong enough to reliably detonate the primer. I compared it to a Glock 17 and personally did not feel a dramatic difference in the triggers. I went with the FNS because it will double as a HD handgun and I prefer the external safety. On the other hand.... I may need a Glock 17 or a Glock 34 for IDPA. FN or Glock whats not to like? One of each? At least you can buy extra magazines for the Glock! (Is someone at FN listening?)

    Don't know about yours, JB, but the sample FNS40 I tested a few weeks ago had a trigger break at 6.5-7lbs (spring trigger gauge), though it did not 'feel' that heavy at all. I agree with you on the clean break. This trigger was not gritty, either, but the one I fondled at the LGS a while back was a bit.

    I imaging a little Flitz in the right places would take care of that post haste.

    I have not fired one, but I dry fired one in the local shop. I thought the trigger was horrible, compared to my FNP. It was long and gritty. I do not like striker fired pistols anyways.

    Hehe your FNP has a nice single action trigger on it; not exactly the best comparison .

    My new FNS is a bit gritty now, but as mentioned by others this seems to sort itself out over time and cleaning.
    I agree that it would be nice if FNH made the triggers metal instead of plastic I find the trigger not that bad as compared to others.
    Overall still like my fns9 better than the MP9 we also have.

    Mines started gritty not as smooth as the ones i tried in store. However, like many have said, it smooths out over time.

    I had a similar experience with my 9mm FNS trigger. However, the FNS 40 was much better.
