PS90 mag failure

2493 Views 10 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  M1P90
This is a range mag. It is a factory 50 rounder. I store it empty (house mags are stored fully loaded). It has seen fewer than 500 rounds.

Sunday, on the first loading at 6 rounds in, one of the plasic half moon parts popped out.

It looks like it is only held in by 2 tiny dabs of superglue.

Anyone have any advice on how to put it back together so it never happens again. Model cement, superglue, gorilla glue, JB Weld,...

I had the only PS90 at the range and it did look like a toy when it fell apart. Had to start pounding the hill with an FAL to compensate and salvage some FN pride.

I'd contact Bob Ailes at FN USA. He can send you a 10 rd replacement. Since you can own a high cap mag, you can change it into a 50 rounder.
If you try to fix it... use a high strength epoxy. :?
I thought the 10rd mags were designed so they couldn't be changed to 50rds like the 30rd mag can. Am I mistaken???
