Demo of FNS Striker Drop Issue

Last week we posted a video discussing the reported FNS striker drop issue some PD’s have been complaining about. CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO.  As I stated, this was a new one for me. So I asked for readers to see if they could recreate the issue. 

And low-and-behold…a reader by the name of Andrew did just that! 

Looking at the video, you can see him pushing the slide out of battery. Depressing the trigger. And then letting the slide come back into battery and…striker drops. 

Have to be honest. Unlike the trigger lock issue we demo’ed in the previous video, I am not entirely sure how this malfunction came to be revealed? Or how it manifests itself in real life? But I am open to suggestions.
