I'm not sure if I want to use my cash for a FS2000, MP5 SBR build HK53 SBR Build, or C3 AR-15.

It's looking pretty good for the FS2000...

Is anyone around here thinking of getting one other than me?

I am pondering getting one...........I will have to let an AR go to fund it, but it's either the FN2000 or an FN SCAR if the come out

What do you all think about me doing an HK53 SBR?

It would be a hell of a lot easier than building a MP5 SBR.

I'm about ready to order the parts I need to add on a Vector to make it look like a 53...


I'll probably end up doing this the ARFCOM way, buying parts for a gun I don't have yet...

I've tried looking for close up pics of the PS90/P90 receiver, hoping to see what type of plastic they are using. The F2000/FS2000 breech cover looks like it is made out of ABS plastic or something you'd find on a toy gun, with a cheap metal spring thrown in there (look for SHOT photos taken last year). According to people that handled the FS2000/PS90 or the military/LE counterparts, they said the plastic was hard, nothing like the polymer on the Glocks. I'm hoping they really refined the plastic, because a hard plastic tends to crack in cold weather. FN knows their stuff so I'll assume it is just as strong or stronger than the Glock receiver.

Dupont Zytel Nylon is favored by many vendors and generally works well if you don't have seams located in stressed areas (Ford just settled a class action lawsuit regarding this issue).

A dealer close to my home has 150 PS90s on order which he claims is the largest domestic order. I believe he also has an almost similar number of FS2000s on order. OTOH he jokes about the 'mythical' PS90 coming any day now. At any rate Im planning to get one (FS2000) but not until demand has been statisfied. Perhaps I can find one to shoot before buying. From whats on the net they look pretty good but its unclear how much real testing theyve been thru and if any professional force has adopted them.

Im wondering how spent cartridge ejection will work when the rifle is shot w/ its side up. That would be as if you were shooting from underneath a car or similar cover where shooting right isde up wouldnt work. It seems the spent casings dribble out too slowly for it not to jam.

If you go with the semi-auto MP5 clone, if in the future you decide to spend the coin on a trigger pack, well that could be fun.




BookHound, do you mind if I try your autosear in my HK33 and in my HK53 when I finish building it?

I shot the FA one a couple of years ago. The quick summary, I wasn't impressed. If you really want a bull-pup design, wait for the Israeli model called the TAVOR (if they ever import it.) Much better ergonomics and design. Sorry I can't remember any specifics other than it sucked compared to the Tavor.
