    FNS-9 Trigger Questions

    After lots of research, I recently purchased a brand new FNS-9 as my first handgun. It looks and feels great, and I can't wait to get it out to the range. Over the last couple of days I've been dry-firing the gun and I've began to notice something about the trigger. I have read about the trigger being gritty when new, but to me the trigger feels "stage-y". Let me try to explain. As I pull the trigger it seems to come to a rough spot, then it gives way (kind of like a light trigger break), and finally moves all the way back before reaching the actual break point.

    I've shot maybe 200 rounds through a Glock and an M&P before, but because it was in a competitive setting, I don't recall a similar feel.

    So a couple of questions: Is the "stage-y" trigger normal? Will it smooth itself out? Is there anything that can be polished to remove the false trigger break? Any other insight on the issue?

    Thanks in advance.

    That trigger "stage-y" is normal. Im currently At 668rds and that feeling is still there. Maybe a gunsmith can fix that for you if it bothers you enough.

    I have a new FNS-9 that I purchased last week and when firing it for the first time I noticed tha same thing you did. Trigger has some take-up, then it starts to fully cock the striker, breaks and fires the shot. I actually had a rough spot after the take-up that was causing me to jerk shots off target. After 130 rounds fired and some dry firing the rough spot seems to have smoothed out to the point that I actually like the trigger pull. I'll have to shoot it again this week to make sure the rough spot doesn't reappear.

    Similar problem on five-seven

    I have a five-seven and have noticed a similar "catch" on my trigger. I found it is from the magazine pushing the trigger linkage (I don't know if that's the correct term) to the side, where there is a groove that it drops into as it slides backwards. You can prove this by taking the barrel off and pulling the trigger with and without a magazine in, and then without a magazine in, push the linkage to the side.

    Any thoughts? Is this the same cause on the FNS-9? If so, I don't think any reasonable amount of shooting will break it in. The trigger is fairly rough as well.
