Looking forward to it.
Gosh, even more peer pressure!
All right, I fent this morning. Verdict? They are probably okay for range mags but I wouldn't use them in a "duty" or "survival" sense with the FS2000. That criticism is specific to the FS2000, as I have found Lancers are absolutely flawless with my ARs.
I think I brought 4 or 5 L5As total. Of these, I had 3 double feeds; once when loading the mag on an open bolt, and twice mid-string. Clearing it involved open the toilet bowl lid and pushing the offending round out of the way, stripping the mag, and starting over. I found the L5As to be difficult to remove (more than i remember from testing earlier in the week) and trying to rip them out on a double feed was nigh impossible. Ah well, they run great with my ARs, so I'll just stick to feeding them to those.
Ultimately, I think FN should set up a deal with CProducts and include their 40 round magazines with the FS2000. Those make the FS2000 a monster; the balance is perfect, the magazine seems bottomless, and the gun just runs like a sewing machine with them. I need moar!
Good to know, thanks for the info.
By the way, could you post a picture of your FS with a 40 round mag installed? Im curious to know what it looks like.
