FNX 45 Safety Issue (non tactical)
Hello FN Forum this is my first post, I've been a longtime lurker.
Background: I purchased my FNX 45 two years ago. It's a model that has the tiny hex screw in the right safety lever not sure if this matters but I read that this meant it was in produced later than the original fnx 45's that launched.
Work had me busy so after two years I am finally able to break it in and start practicing my pistol manual of arms. The FNX 45 has had no issues so far it's just short of 250 rounds fired and I followed the new FNX user guide found on this forum.
I'm a greener pistol shooter just getting into it practicing my stance, sight alignment, grip, and et cetera. While practicing my pistol draw from safe to safety off and then trigger pull I noticed an issue.
Issue: My safety lever can be depressed farther than its normal resting point. If I press down too hard on the safety when toggling it from safe to safety off the hammer can be sent forward without me pulling the trigger.
I wasn't able to find anyone else online who's had this issue please let me know if there's any relevant information online regarding this. I'm very concerned because in a tense situation or even in a non tense situation at the range I could accidentally discharge my weapon.
Theory: My theory is that the safety bar that is used to prevent the trigger from traveling backwards is getting pushed up into the trigger group when the safety levers are being depressed and hitting the sensitive pin/lever system that holds the hammer back.
Please assist if there's any relevant information out there on this issue. I'll be posting a video tomorrow to explain the issue further.
