    First post here, and had to start in the gun section!

    The G triggers are some of the best. I have a few SSAs in some of my builds and they are worth the money. I wouldn't feel snobish about putting the best parts in your guns though. Quality equipment requires no apologies!

    Good choice and even better price!

    I've got the SD-E in my Colt lower. It is a incredible trigger. I put the factory Colt trigger in my pistol lower, and I rarely use that anymore unless it's in the car. (So it never gets used lol.)

    Baltimore *City* PD still uses the G22 FWIW.

    Yea Omaha PD uses glock’s too. I think they use 19’s. I’ve always wondered what they use for long guns here.

    From what I see, the problem (if you can call it that) with FN is they are focused on military, LEO sales of rifles and more recently pistols. It’s my opinion that civilian firearms come secondary and are just the low hanging fruit that they will pick up because it’s out there, but not the core of there business.

    Glad you like your 509 and the cycling problem seem to be smoothed out for you!


    Thats pretty much it. Those LEO/Military contracts are whats gonna pay the bills and make them the big bucks. Like you said civilian is just the low hanging fruit to bring in some extra cash. Seems the only thing they change on the firearms are legalizing them like full auto semi auto,The rest stays. Makes sense though. Makes it much more cost effective.

    After dust settled with the initial break in period being resolved. Its one of my favorite guns and I wont be getting rid of it anytime soon. I actually ordered a Leupold DPP for it to take advantage of the optics system.

    Baltimore PD got rid of the FNs quickly. There are many police turn-ins and there were never many PDs to make the jump from their Glocks or S&W.

    I do love the PS90.

    Yea my PS90 is blast to shoot. Unless you have deep pockets its more of a gun you take out 2-3 times a year. With 50 round mags one box of ammo goes into a mag and they are 29.99 a box and its stupid easy to burn up a mag with the minimal amount of recoil and effort it takes to shoot it.

    I still love FN’s and will be getting more down the road, but not for a while as they are on the pricey side of the firearm market.

    Well I’ve seen people with 5k+ rounds through them and haven’t had to replace them.

    Thing is, it's a lack of foresight on FNs part. They designed the FNP45 to replace the M9, so they sized the magazines to mil spec cartridge length.

    Then in the civilian world, the magazines would hang up on all the cheaper ammo. Instead of recalling it, they released the FNX with longer magazines and added a fully supported chamber.

    Saying that this gun doesn't work because you aren't using military or law enforcement loads just tells me they haven't learned their lesson.

    This true but I’ve also noticed alot more people switching to the hotter loads in general so maybe they are trying to be preemptive but laking in making sure customers are aware. If they were to of made the spring softer for the 115gr they would wear out quickly for the hotter 124’s. Seems like they made the spring stiffer for the hotter loads and then after the break in periods its at were it needs to be for the 124 and can use the 115. Either way it sucks they say nothing about this in the manual and it wouldn’t be so bad if they had. But whats done is done I will break er in and then enjoy my pistol.
