Congrats.
I have a Leupold Mk4 1-3x14 CQT. Don't like big dot in the center, but it's a decent scope otherwise.

Why no pics? Pics of mine have been posted already so neener neener :p

I loved the weapon, but had a lot of trouble adjusting to the bullpup's trigger.

Yep, that is the only problem with the gun IMO. I think it is the finest civilian black gun that FN makes personally.

There are great aftermarket triggers.

Dr. Coffee's name echoes in my mind.

I have used them.

the trigger is much stiffer than I am used to but the gun is sooooo much fun to shoot I can over look that for now. With a older aimpoint holographic I was hitting three clay birds placed between 50 to 25 yards away with three shots in just a few seconds due to the lack of signifigant recoil. this is now my favorite gun I can't wait to get a better optic for it :D

Didn't he only do the Neu-Trigger thing?
The Neu-trigger smooths out the trigger pull but doesn't reduce the length of pull or the the weight of pull (except for friction losses). Doesn't sound like much but trust me, it does help.

I think I did read somewhere that he cut a couple of coils off his springs in the trigger pack which did reduce the weight of pull. You can do this but it's at your own risk!

I've always remembered it to be a lightened trigger pull. There are different setups available, not just one.
