I'm happy you got this fixed! YAY!! Now go out and get that gun dirty again.
Beware of Dragons. For you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

When it has happened to me, I did not adjust my grip. Only let off the trigger and shifted my fingertip over a tiny bit, and continued shooting. And, while I am pretty darn slow, I am generally in the top 10 of my local matches on accuracy. Mid-pack on overall scoring.

There is a dramatic decrease in the amount of takeup before the trigger is ready to break. It may not sound like a lot but I measured the FS trigger at 3.4mm of takeup while the stock Rival-S has 6.8mm (based on my calculations).100% agree on the benefit of the FS. Reduction of the takeup.
The more takeup, the more opportunity I have seen to unconsciously affect the point of impact.

While I really like the Holosun 507C I have on mine, I’d like that larger field of view. I know the hood/shroud can hang over the ejection port, wondering if anyone here has an SRO and if it has any negative affects on the Rival S?

With my astigmatism, I prefer a 3 or smaller MOA dot. Without glasses, it’s at least manageable.
Larger than that…big smudge/comma looking dot on the glass
The SRO can be found for only $100 more than the price point you posted…and comes with a smaller MOA dot.

The OG top end (slide and barrel with guide rod) fits on the steel frame but does not fully go into battery. The trigger can be pulled, the striker releases, and cycling the slide resets the trigger. I won't shoot it without everything locked up properly so I am abandoning my plan of using the OG top end.
It's probably out of battery because of the different barrel and locking block. Like the OG, the locking block is an insert in frame, but it is longer than the OG block.
I did not test the -S barrel in the OG slide on the -S frame; it might work.
In front of the locking block is a plastic buffer, which was just frame material in the OG. This buffer is retained by screws holding the checkered "thumb" pieces. These pieces might make the -S not fit a holster closely molded to the OG. The gun fits in my Red Hill competition holster.
The OG trigger bar can be dropped into the -S, along with its FreedomSmith trigger.
All the trigger job springs (plunger, trigger, striker) are compatible between OG and -S.
The -S accepts the W74 guide rod and Wolff Commander recoil spring from the OG.
The optic plates are compatible between OG and -S.
My -S barrel plunked all sample rounds of the three heavy bullet loads I use in the OG: 147gr jacketed flat point, 147gr plated round nose, and 150gr coated flat point, all at 1.13". Your results may very; I doubt they use the same reamer for every barrel and tools wear.
OG MecGar magazines with OG aluminum base plates seat and drop free in the -S. This is a surprise as I was told they don't work. Maybe it's the new alum plates included with the -S that don't work? That doesn't make any sense. Maybe the OG plates don't work with the new Canik mag tubes in the -S? Maybe the steel frame dimensions aren't controlled very well.
