and so it begins. but what the $#@%$%@! a TEN ROUND MAGAZINE!!!!!
oh bother, said pooh as he picked up a pair of 50'sand reminded himself that the gun was an unbelievable deal.... and his suppressor will marry up nicely when uncle sam blesses the circumcision.

is that too much colorful writing? im just so thrilled to have the project under way.

It'll take you all of 30 seconds to convert that 10 rounder into a 50 with the correct floorplate.
Isn't the 10 rounder sealed? I think you can only mod the 30 rounder.
I don't think it is. I've seen a picture of the 'filler' out of a 10 round mag. It would suck if it wasn't removable. If I had bought my PS90 in a state that didn't prohibit large capacity mags, and received it with a fixed 10 rounder, I'd call FN and ask them to trade me for at least a 30.

I'm glad I got it (and ordered it from a dealer) in a state without those silly laws. Ordered the conversion floor plate and two 50 round mags, so I have three. I'll probably order another one soon.

the ten is epoxied togehter at the floor plate button, and the spring is too short. i havent looked for those parts yet, but i was thinking about keeping it to hand to looky-loos on the range so i can say "ya wanna shoot it? here load one up!" and hand them a mag that wont hold $20 worth of ammo.

^insert evil laugh here^

Yes, as said above - U can only convert the 30 rounders to 50 rounds. Not anything that can be done with the 10 rounders. Sorry.

red dot

i mocked this up with a bit of a weaver rail to see whick wy totake it. im going to ask my machinist buddy to make me direct mount adapter for the factory threaded plus one more drilled hole on th flat at the rear mount for the fn sigt. so it will be 1/2 inch lower more or less.

Well, that is interesting. I'm just so used to the wide field of view on the EOtech.

When U get it zeroed, let us know how U like it.

well, i made it out to the range, i like the function of the dot but is was A) too high, and B) too delicate looking. i think the eotech 553 mounted as low as possible is the way to go.

so im going to schmooz my machinist to mill it off, as at least one person here has done.

neat gun though.
