Hi.... after reading the forum for awhile, I just purchased a red dot equipped PS90 for $1150 on Gunbroker. It will be here in a few days.

What are some of the common mods you are doing?

Grip tape, stippling, trigger work, etc.

I'll put a Surefire light on it, and maybe SBR it in the near future, as it'll replace my G19 for home defense. I think my wife will be more comfortable and more accurate with the PS90 than a Glock.

If U SBR any warranty is gone, some people put grip tape on it (they sweat a lot) some spent $350. on a Geissele trigger pack, flashlight might be a good idea! All depends what u want?

There have been reports of these when SBR'd and or using a suppressor having issues like at worst the stock cracking!

apparently there are more cracks than in just the PS90 and mags.
Any actual evidence, like multiple first hand incident reports of the PS90 stocks and magazines developing stress fractures? . One photo of a cracked magazine does mean squat, for all I know it as run over by an ATV. My PS90 gets worked hard and shows no signs of deformation.

Posting pics without any information as to what ammo was being used or other data adds nothing.

The rifle being SBR'd had nothing to do with that, so your point is?

That photo is of a PS90 that has been made CA compliant.

Someone has to put something in between the mag and the latch to release the mag. So they have damaged the stock from this action.

A suppressor would not cause that, looks like both magazine release tabs were broken off which does not make much sense in saying it was caused by a suppressor.
Look at my post, page 1, #10, to educate yourself, as to why it looks like that.

I broke my PS90 stock.

Where the big disassembly button connects to the stock, a bit of plastic is "scooped out", and the receiver tends to shoot off.

Do ya'll think that FN will consider it a MFR defect, or do I need to buy a new one?

It sucks to have to hold the front of the gun on when shooting it. Good thing I have two.

Have you made any Mods to the stock? If not, I would contact Bob Ailes at FN.. my first PS90 was a lemon.. it was stove piping with a variety of different lots of both the SS912 and the SS195. I called him and sent it back.. they had the same issue... they replaced the whole gun.. I was asking about mods as they most likely with void any warranty.


Here is his contact info.

No. no mods at all.

Was showing it off at the range and... no ****... the "front flew off". Dropped my can and the business end of the rifle on concrete. I thought that I had re-assembled it incorrectly, but when I got home it was obvious that the stock was broken.

Do you have pics of the damage?

No pics, as I would have to disassemble the stock. From the top it looks OK.

I sent Bob and email yesterday, and this morning he called me up. Nice guy.

Apparently though, SBRing, suppressing, and shooting aftermarket ammo is not something that you should mention if you want stuff you broke to get fixed under warranty. I can't say as I blame them. He told me how to go about purchasing some new stock halves.

I don't see how SBR'ing, suppressing, or shooting aftermarket ammo could break the plastic stock halves. If anything, they'd damage the barrel first. In fact, the P90 was designed from the get-go with a short barrel, and to be used with a suppressor.

I'd probably just use zip-ties or something to keep it in place, then explain it to people at the range. FWIW, this isn't an isolated incident. Lots of FS2000s have cracked stocks and problems with the plastic

For the "broken" stock way back in the day that occurred because people would Call of Duty slap the mags in causing the plastic to break on the stock.

He's talking PS-90 not a TAVOR:-x
OMG! Sorry I have been having trouble deciding whether or not to put a Geiselle in my FS 2000 (wishing there was 1 for the PS 90) it's a lot of coin and I wonder if it would void my warranty?

Been thinking about my FS 2000 a lot since reading today that during disassembly the stock can easily break! http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/8771/hpim2049.jpg seems to happ easily!

I would like to add that I had a FS2000 stock break in the exact same spot, and same side, as pictured here. It happened when I was yanking the "upper" out of the stock. I would advise owners to be careful when removing the upper. Also, be careful around the inspection port when reassembling after a complete disassembly. It is easy to break the stock when installing the inspection port spring!

Every few yrs I mainly concentrate on different weapons to play with, lately after a long absence from them it has been the FNH's! Few months ago it had only been mainly AK's!

Thank You
