I found a feature on my carbine that I didnt see listed in the very sparse manual.

There is a closable "Dust cover" in the shell ejection port...anyone else find that? Its analagous to the dustcover on an AR15/M16.

I will also use it to seat a full magazine so it's not against the bolt. Usually this is the first mag, because then I get into shooting it and slam the mags home. Drbrown have you shot yours yet?
Not yet...just been fondleing it...heheheh!

Well...I Velcro'd her up as per the links instructions. Its a shame the gun beats itself up like that. You would have thought they would have addressed that after all this time. Im wondering what there philosophy is with selling replacement parts to civilian owners?

Seems like a glaring issue with the weapon system. I guess FN thinks that since the original intent of the weapon was for military and LE that they would simply replace parts as necessary and appearance be damned.

The thing is, the civilian collector/shooter is a bit more sensitive to how the piece looks.
