Very cool; thanks for posting pictures; I just saw the intro video on this from different youtube gunrags/bloggers; how is the trigger? Same as FNS? I got to handle the worked-over triggers when the FNS was in the beta-phase and even those weren't great, which is why I never got an FNS, even though they are great value and everything else about them seemed great.

The FNP series, on the other hand, had very usable triggers that reminded me of HK triggers.

it's about the same as the "C" smoother than the FNS out of the box, just waiting on the flat trigger

Is someone making an aftermarket for it?

I read that they stopped plans for the FNS as it was too complex; what's the diff b/t the FNS "C"/Compact? Or am I confusing certain models?

I thought originally they stated the sear was the thing that was too complex for them to design.??
