Hey guys just picked up my new FS2000 and I had a few little questions,

My first question is about the pin that holds the “bolt alignment lever” in place, mine is kind of free floating in that it will slide back and forth, I gently pushed it with the tip of a pin to see if it would fall out in either direction and it moves over in both directions till it’s almost flush on the other side and stops, I don’t think it’s in danger of falling out but I wanted to know if this was normal.



Second question is there anything I should know about this rifles in general, quirks, do’s and don’ts etc.

Thanks guys.

O and here's a photo of my FN's together

I just checked mine and that is normal. :?
As far as don'ts go:
Don't go yanking the upper off with the forgrip missing- (you can break the forward lug on the stock this way)- I did.
Don't take the stock apart just for fun because it's a real pain to reassemble.
And lastly remember to take the mag out before field stripping or else the bolt assembly won't come out. (still gets me sometimes!)

I'm sure this is listed somewhere on the forum but in case you haven't seen it...

1) Do not use polymer mags like PMags or Orlites with the FS2000. They get stuck and are difficult to remove.

2) Do not jerk, crank, or slap on the charging handle.

Grats! I just purchased one as well! After handling it I knew I had to have it. It shoulders like nothing else IMO. A little pricey but then, I traded for it so I 'spose I saved on tax.

And for all the people who think it's not worth it over a 'crafted' rifle... I traded a Cooper Custom Classic .22 lr, plus a shotgun for this :) and couldn't be happier.
