Shooting the FN with NATO ball

Did a little parts swapping on the FN today, then checked it with 15 rounds of 124 NATO ball for proper functioning. This gun has the best Hi Power trigger I've felt in a MK III weapon, and the results of a good trigger are very apparent to me.



The three (four?) flyers are surely my fault, as I had a bit of a distraction during the string. Distance was 12 yards, reddish circle surrounds a very tight pattern of 3-4 rounds, while the bluish circle at the bottom is my aiming point. I put the slide in my sight pusher and moved the rear sight about 1/2 mm to the left. Not going to worry about it now.

Nice shooting, and tight group for center mass, I'd be happy with it.

It appears they were made for each other!

LelandRay said, "I put my slide in my sight pusher . . ."



Where can I get one of them?

Cordially, Jack

It's something like that. I'm not sure if the 1911 would work on the Hi Power or not.

Howdy Mr. Jack,



The sight pusher that Mr. LelandRay is referring to is this one sir:

We discovered in the past we both own this one now. I also own both a Smith and Sig sight pusher, but buying one that will only work on one platform can become very expensive over time. I decided I wanted one unit that would function with practically every platform around.



While it may seem expensive, it was actually cheaper than either specific pushers were too.



Hope this will help you sir.

Hey, Jack. Here's something of a review of the B&J rig that Mr. Twoguns and I have. I'm very impressed with the company's business ethics, as well as with the quality of the equipment.
