Velcro? I know U think ol' Ship has gone crazy... What the heck is he reviewing velcro for??? :p ... However, I want to make sure new PS90 owners and new members to the site see this issue...

As some of us know, as spent casings are ejected thru the ejection port, the metal casings can ding up the polymer inside of the ejection port. Some of us have lined that area w/ velcro... I did this before I even fired my gun for the first time.

( U can find some pics of this issue here in the photos... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FN_PS90

and, there is more info here:

http://ps90forum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=18 )

Now, on my first range trip, I had my PS90 on a table, sandbagged. And ejected rounds hit the sandbag and bounced around in there a bit more than usual.

Typically, one need not velcro the inside of the bolt "door" too. But I found a few dings on mine after that trip. So, I went back and velcroed that area as well. I have pics below.

Just an FYI - part of what I velcroed was actually the front part of the trigger pack. Its easier to install the velcro if U remove the pack, instead of trying to do it thru the ejection port...






So, in summary - the velcro gets 2 thumbs up

Good info. Now where can I get some velcro with adhesive backing? Does Wal-Mart have it in their fabric dept?

Yes, they do. They have the kind to sew, and then the adhesive kind as well.

I went and bought some at Wal-Mart, and then I found some old 3M velcro in a drawer that I had bought years ago for a telescope. I didn't even open the new pack yet (now, I don't even know where I put it :oops: )
