    Does this striker from Apex help the hydro lock that the 509 experiences when submerged in water, withdrawn and fired imediately? If not are you working on this?

    We don’t see this as the giant issue it’s been blown up to be. Our striker only does the things we advertise it to do and that is not listed as one of the features.

    Will this striker fix the current delayed fire issue FNH is having with the FNS -9 striker

    Our striker is not intended to “Fix” any issues in FN pistols. It’s a striker that maintains the same safety values as the factory product and is made differently.
