New member here researching for a current purchase. I would like to know if there is a physical difference between a PS90 that comes with a 10rd mag, as compared to one that comes with a 30rd mag. I ask, because I have an opportunity to purchase one NIB that comes from the factory with a 10rd mag for signifigantly less than one NIB that comes with a 30rd. Thanks in advance.

ps- great info on this site!

:) Welcome GunFan,
If you live in a state that only allows 10 rd mags then you cannot convert the 10 rd mag to a 30 rd or 50 rd mag. but if you live in a FREE state you can purchase the rifle with the 10 rd mag and convert the 10 rd to a 50 rd. the spring is the same one in both the 10 and the 50 rd mag.
you can do it yourself
go here on how to: http://fnforum.net/viewtopic.php?t=5129
or you can purchase a conversion piece from Magazineparts.com for about $10.00.

It is the EXACT same gun - only the mag is different.

So, if U have a good deal on a 10 round mag version of the PS90 - and U are in a state that does not restrict the rounds... Then, U can just go get 50 round mags and your PS90 is like everyone else's...

You'll really enjoy the PS90. I do.

I'm not sure that you can convert the 10 round mag to 50 round though. I know that it is easy to convert the 30 round to 50 rounds, but I think the sping in the 10 round is shorter and I thought that the bottoms were sealed or something, but I could be wrong. Not to worry about the spings though cause http://magazineparts.com/productDisplay.php?id=PE sells springs also and their spings are better than the originals.

As noted though, check your state to make sure it's legal first.
