That is the problem exactly. The channel that the striker rides in fills with water. When he pulls it out of the bucket and fires it immediately the water does not have time to drain. Since water can not be compressed like air, it causes the striker to have a light strike on the primer that does not cause the round to fire. Is a pretty common problem with striker fired guns. The guns that have the issue will have it 100% of the time unless you lengthen the time that it is out of the water so that it can drain. The solution would be to put some additional methods for the water to drain out of the channel faster, then there it is less likely to cause a light strike. Some people see it as more of an issue than others. In all of the years that I have carried a firearm I have never had a time where I had the gun completely under the water or had to fire one within a second of it coming out of being completely submerged. If I was in that situation on a regular basis I would likely look at a hammer fired weapon that is less likely (although not totally immune) to suffer from that same malfunction.I don't get it, unless the firing pin system has some sort of hydraulic lock up due to the water. I think the guy should stick his head in the bucket then try it.
My my, a little touchy eh? You’re right, your tester is “one guy”, but only one guy! Because he’s a Cop and you believe him to be “very knowledgeable” doesn’t mean that his testing has any scientific basis for conclusion other than his backyard results! Obviously you just want to argue ad infinitum, the only card you hold is your so called (by you) YouTube expert! You don’t like the gun, we get it! Don’t buy one! Whatever you do get, keep it in a bucket of water till it’s needed. Let me also suggest you use a metal bucket so you can create a electrolysis experiment for some cockamamie YouTube video. Oh and please try not to shiver like a house cat when you reach into the bucket when conducting your scientific “Bill Nye” experiment, looks a bit “femi”.What same guys? This is 1 person who is a cop and is very knowledgeable and he also has commented about the FNS9 but he has "Nothing" to do with MAC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
