like maybe 0050XX- 0057xx ? . It is my understanding that they actually went out in somewhat of a less then sequential order even in the earlier models so knowing a serial range might help narrow it down a bit but you'd really have to ask the seller to provide you with a picture etc.. to prove that he has one.mp5pdw2001 said:Does anyone have the serial # ranges that had the forward sear ?
Hopefully no one will flame you.AngryAndy said:I know I am going to get flamed for stating this but it seems to be the general consensus of what I have been able to read on the web. etc..
Bad ammo. The operator knew that the ammo was giving him problems and still continued to use it.AngryAndy said:
That is what I said, just not so eloquently.AngryAndy said:...according to Promoted Pawn....
"The safety sear serves the same role as an auto sear does in an M-16; when set to "auto" it prevents hammer follow when the disconnector is disengaged. After the bolt carrier is in battery, the auto sear releases the hammer automatically so long as the trigger is held back. The safety sear does the same thing, which is the reason it would be later omitted by FN. The disconnector catches the hammer the same as it would in an AR-15.
Does it provide an extra margin of safety through redundancy? Yes. Is it absolutely necessary? For semi-auto use, no.
Are you implying that the ATF and FnH are somehow in cahoots with each other to modify the hammer group to remove a safety feature putting the firearm operator at risk?AngryAndy said:It's not that FN removed this part it's that the ATF asked FN to remove it.
It's my understanding that the AFT wouldn't be that concerned about our safety or be that qualified at re-engineering the FN FS2000.
(not that I claim to be an expert on this topic just repeating what I have read)
