What gun do you want, but have not been able to find?

Post by bobapunk » 17 Dec 2013, 05:34

I took a while for me to get my M&P Shield 9mm, with the recall and all. However, when I got it, I got a great deal on it $365 shipped!

That is not the reason I made this thread...

I have been waiting to get this gun for 23 months...

FN announced it at SHOT 2012.
They were FINALLY sent to distributors last week.
I got mine Saturday.

Here is my FNS-9L:

Here is compared to my standard FNS-9:

And here is my collection of FN handguns (and I think pdpsc is bad with his Glocks...)

Top to bottom: FNX-9, FNS-9, FNP-45, FNS-9L, Five-seveN USG (I need obviously need more pistol lights...)

And for good measure, here are my FNS-9mm mags:

The trigger is better than the Standard FNS. I had an FNS with the manual safety and the trigger was terrible (ask Jay).
Sold that one and got one with NO manual safety. The trigger is much better.
However, the trigger on the Long Slide feels even better!

Not sure if that is just luck of the draw with the stamped steel pieces, or if they actually tried to make the trigger better on the long slide model...

One of these days I need to get a trigger gauge... Looking at this one: http://amzn.com/B0030HSG10" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Thanks for the feedback on the trigger.
