I am really thinking about a ps90 but I have many questions before I purchase one.

I really think I want my own optics, wouldnt the tri-rail be the way to go? if I go with the USG black sight can I remove it and have a rail for mounting my own optics on it? it doesnt look like I can.

At best I am thinking this is a 50yd gun tops, I know it was designed for CQC and isnt intended for far ranges. Is it really more of a novelty gun?

What is the life expectancy of the gun? I do believe in shooting my firearms at the range on a regular basis.

is there any issues of note?

is the short barrel version readily available?

it seems that Tanners is the best bet for purchase, am I correct?

what is the latest word on the available ammo, I had read there was much opposition to this firearm and the 5.7x28 and it was soon to be off the market.

how reliable is the firearm?

I know its a ong list but i am really on the fence with this, I dont know if i want to spend the money on this if is just a novelty item, I can always get another ak or ar in place of it. is the scar being released to general public?

Thanks for your help!
Step 1 - Go here and read the PS90 mini FAQ:

http://fnforum.net/viewtopic.php?t=4286

As for barrel life - I think it is rated at 20k or so - about average for rifle barrels.

Only place I have ever seen the short barrel version sold is at CMMG - most people just buy theirs and short barrel it lter - if you want to do this. I am satisfied with the way it is, personally.

Never had a feeding issue with mine. Be aware that FN stated that if you short barrel the gun, you loose the warranty.

Well, the SCAR won't be out until the end of the year.

As for the ammo - with ammo prices jumping, and the 5.7 basically staying the same, the ammo costs about the same as AR/FS2000 ammo.

I personally prefer the PS90 to the FS2000 - the FS2000 seems too bulky on the front end for my liking.

I am not too worried about the ammo supply - however, as I have stated many time s- I know what you are saying. I stockpiled 2100 rounds of the stuff.

10-15 years from now, I don't want a gun that I cannot get ammo for.

I pull from my stock as I shoot the gun, and then just replace it immediately (so I can keep ammo from sitting there too long on the shelf)
