    MIKEYFNS: Buddy, I thought of this very thing happening. My wife was at the range with me last Saturday when the last few occurrences of the dreaded ambi-mag-drop happened and she looked at me and said, "That needs to be addressed. What if that happens on the street or even in a match?"

    As far as the trigger it's more to clean up the inconsistent break. I believe it lightens it a lil. But main concern is the break is not always the same poundage.

    Unfortunately, you'd lose at both. The former being far worse than the latter.

Luckily this happened on the range every time and not in a "situation".

    I'm a right handed shooter and use a high thumbs forward grip. My left hand grip when shooting .20 - .25 second splits gets tight and squeezes on top of my shooting hand causing the accidental mag drop mid string. I know this doesn't sound like a lot of times in nearly 4,000 rounds but I can't have that happening on a gun that I carry daily.

    I called FN and they told me they don't make a non-ambi mag release and weren't aware of anybody that does. I called Midwest Gun Works in Missouri thinking maybe they would know of someone that makes one or have some suggestions for me. They weren't aware of anybody making a non-ambi mag release and thought that taking a Dremel to the mag release may be the way to go.

    So...off to the work bench we went. I removed the mag release to do the work. Works like a charm now!
    Dude you are my HERO.

    I've been shooting my FNS guns for years but I recently got very defensive shooting focused and all of a sudden I was droppiung mags at least 1 out of every hundred rounds. I could not for the life of my diagnose with dry fire what was going wrong, I've had like 2 weeks of sleepless nights trying to decide if I needed to sell all four of my favorite guns.

    While I hate bubbaing my guns, this seems like the only solution in existence.

    Get your **** together FNH, this is my only gripe with you ever but it's a big one.

    I registered on this forum to post this. Also this forum has the absolute worst most stringent password requirements I've ever encountered.
