I thought someone here might be able to help me with a bit of research. I'm writing a novel, and one of characters uses an FS2000.

I'm wondering if the mag couplers that clip 2 mags side by side would work with the FS2K.

I do not believe that it would, unless one magazine was flipped up-side-down and held at the bottom of the other magazine (and I've never seen one that was manufactured in this manner) reason being is that the base of the mag-well is so wide in comparison to AR-15/M16 designs, which the double-mags were made for.

Thanks, exactly what I needed although not what I wanted to hear.

I was hoping to have him do a tactical reload so the firefight can go on a bit longer (more action, more fun). He's coming out of bad guy central (a bar) and has pre-positioned the weapon to use in his escape. He can't have a mag on him, as he was searched going in so it has to be with the weapon. Any thoughts? Buttstock pouch maybe?

A butt-stock pouch would probably get in the way.

With how mammoth the slab side of the FS2k is you could hold a beta mag on the side with the right pouch.

I just tried it with some 30's and there to short, they get in the way of the mag release. Id take a picture of it with the 40's done but there all at work.

Nope, our hero is a Minnesotan. But I think "Escape from Commie-fornia" might just be a story unto itself.

I keep wondering if the IRS would let me deduct an F2K as "research expenses". Yeah, my wife laughed at that too.

The image is actually from a photograph taken by my cover designer, however I don't think they considered if the FS2000 shape was trademarked as that is atypical. However the logo does probably need to be edited out. It really isn't as distinct at full size.

I will check with FN just the same.

Haven't been able to get in touch with FN and its press time. Something tells me they are going to be a PITA about it, so the FS2000 is gone both from the cover and within the book.

That should make all the legal eagles happy.
