    FNX vs FNS

    I own the FNX in 40 cal. Never handled a FNS.

    First you tell me whether you prefer a hammer fired gun with a DA/SA action trigger or a striker fired same trigger pull each time action then I will answer your question.

    I like DA/SA with a safety. Is that the only benefit of the FNX over FNS?

    Got 2 of 'em. Like them very much. Just wondering what the FNS is all about.
    Like the Mongo quote in your signature.

    My FNS has been a very reliable pistol. I put in on par with either my Glock or M&P. I just got my first FNX (45) earlier this month. Control wise, I like the DA/SA feature over striker fired...that said I feel I am well served by either.

    Yes, that is the primary difference. The FNS functions similar to a Glock. Sounds like the FNX is what you want.

    Re: FNX vs FNS

    The fnx single action trigger pull trumps the fns trigger pull any day of the week. The main advantage of a striker fire is simplicity. Less things to think about.
