I am entertaining the notion of keeping my 2nd PS90 and trying to see what optics people use with the Tri-Rail models.

I have an OD white optic one that I got when the PS90s cmae out, but the new tri-rail black PS90 is starting to grow on me. 8)

I put my eotech 512b on it and it just looks too bulky on it. I don't have a low mount for my aimpoint M2, and don't want to spend a lot of money just to try out the Trijicons on it. I like the Zeiss Zpoint though, even though they are expensive also.

Show off your pics and tell me how you shoot with them and like them.
I still consider my ps90 THE rifle to grab in a SHTF situation, and plan on keeping it that way.

Heck I even built a .22lr clone just to plink with for that reason. :shock:

I prefer the USSS Black Reticle on the standard PS90
For the Tri Rail I go with the EOTech.
I'll try to post pics later.

Thanks all.

I broke and ordered a Trijicon reflex6. If I end up not liking it on the PS90 I'll just use it on my ar15, and use the eotech off that on the PS90.

ps. check out my OTHER bullpup I like to shoot and plink with (11cents per round, and it's NOT a .22). 8)

Thx! The dual mag setup barely clears the bottom rear of the NV scope but w/optimal eye relief/placement it won't clear. So, that coupled w/the problem of the first rd of the 2nd mag working its way to the rear from recoil has led me back to using a single mag.

Isn't the 2nd mag supposed to face the other way, so it doesn't do that?

Unfortunately that's the way the dual mag clamp setup was designed. If you can figure out a way for the 2nd mag to face the other way and still work properly then you'll have my undying gratitude!...

I got my hands on a couple of those clamps recently - Not really sure if I'll have it like that on my PS90 - but, I did clamp two mags together to try it.

I accidentally hooked them together a different ay, and then had to change it once I tried to load the mags on the rifle.

That is the ONLY way it will work.

Yeah I see now. It won't work any other way when you flip it around. Damn. Maybe someone can come up with some sort of cover that would clip on the up facing mag opening.

For me its the stock FN BLACK Ring Sight (AKA USSS/USG Sight).
It retains the PS90 profile better than any other and does not need batteries :-D

Thanks, but I meant for railed Ps90's, other than ring sights.
I already have one of those :D .

Magazine opening covers are available from two different off-site vendors.
www.halomfg.com & NeoArms have them listed on their sites.
The covers do seem to be the ideal companion for the double mag clamps, much needed on the upper facing mag opening.

Yeah but do they retain the bullet from sliding backwards due to recoil?
If they are just a plain external cover, then I'd guess no.

There are several vendors who sell them - who did U order yours from - there may be alternatives so U need not wait.
