Gentelmen,

I am one of those dreaded "Army Contractors"

At a friend of mine's shop I saw a PS90 he had for sale.

Cost is not an issue and the compact size really appeals to me.

My specific questions are as follows:

Are there many small parts that can be lost in the dirt during MX?

What is a reasonable engagement range for heavily clothed human targets. I am wondering in specific, how it compares with the 5.56 fired from a short barreled M4.

How does the weapon hold up in dusty conditions?

How is the weapon's overall reliability?

What is the responsiveness of FN to technical issues?

I will have an APO addy that parts can be shipped to as well. This weapon would be used daily but not neccessarly fired every day for the next 1 to 3 years. It would basically be a companion to my uniform.

I am looking for some no-nonsence advise from a very conservative perspective. I am not plinking with this weapon but rather it will see heavy use as a PDW for Heliborne and fixed wing missions.

I am not a collector but rather an end user looking for a good tool to fill a niche requirement.

I deploy in two weeks and would like to make a decision this week to get one if it is suitable. I was also considering the venerable M1 carbine with a folding stock or an M4.

I thank you in advance for your input.

Sean

Sean,

Please don't double post the same question in different forums. I replied to your other post. Lets let Shipwreck the Admin close this one down.

Thanks,
