No need to wait, just keep the gun in a cooler full of hand warmers prior to testing ;-)

Re: American Eagle 40gr TMJ Velocity, PS90 SBR

Another nice test / data point. Your channel has become my go-to for checking velocities of different loads, really like that you also include the velocities in the video description for easy reference. I'm glad to see that the AE load isn't as anemic out of the P90 as it is out of the FsN, may have...

Re: Vanguard Outfitters V57 Prime, T6 clone

Another great test. Very impressive performance from the P90 especially - desire to SBR intensifies.

Re: Lehigh Defense "Controlled Chaos"

Perhaps EA would be willing to load some? I'd be more than willing to test.. As cool as this would be, I would be wary of Elite or R&R or any commercial interest loading the CC in 5.7x28 as it is a Brass projectile. While technically a Frangible, "Brass Jacket Air Core," it still may raise some eye...

Re: Lehigh Defense "Controlled Chaos"

I have not tried them out of the PS90. I have several hundred loaded with 5.6 of true blue as that is what I carry in the FsN for self defense, but True Blue is not the best powder for the longer barrels. I can put together a ladder using HS6 or longshot for the PS90 and report back if you are not ...

Re: PS90 SBR :D

Congrats man! I was just watching a bunch of your videos, and was surprised not to see any P90 testing. Looking forward to seeing some SBR tests in the future!

Re: Lehigh Defense "Controlled Chaos"

Sorry to bump such an old thread, but was wondering, has anyone used this projectile in either the PS90 or PS90 SBR? And if so, what loads/ velocities were you getting?

Re: Possibility of an "Echo" Trigger for the PS90?

Taking your finger off the trigger fires the gun. This level of full on tactifag bullshit is just too much. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e169/panzermk2/hqdefault.jpg As I understand it, if you somehow depress the trigger and don't want to fire the second shot, engaging the safety will prevent ...

Re: Possibility of an "Echo" Trigger for the PS90?

I was actually thinking it would be some type of modified PS90 trigger pack, rather then using the ECHO. The PS90 uses the same bolt as the P90, and I believe the Gen 2 and 3 trigger packs had that little hammer safety that prevents hammer follow, which is the core part of the Echo trigger that allo...

Possibility of an "Echo" Trigger for the PS90?

So theres a new, ATF approved trigger system for the AR called the "Echo" that fires both when the trigger is depressed, and when it is released: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=965JBkKDpq8" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; For those familiar with the PS90 trigger pack, would this be po...

As far as commercial off the shelf projectiles that are available in bulk (not ss195 or T6B) what you consider to be the best performing lightweight .224 for the FSN?

Re: 3-round burst Five seveN

I have been thinking about the integration of a 3 round burst in the Five Seven for a loooooooooong time! I think it would prove to be quite effective for Military and police. I think it would be really effective as well, frankly I'm surprised FN hasn't tested it out. I think the easiest method of ...

Re: 7 inch FsN Barrels Ready to Ship NOW

I'm sorry to bug you about this, but have there been any chrono #'s taken with either the 6" or 7" barrels? Specifically with the SS197 and SS198 to serve as a baseline (as these velocities are pretty well established out of the FsN factory barrel.)

Sight offset at 7 yards?

So I recently snagged a PS90 tri-rail, very excited to have it. Would have bought one years ago but only recently joined a free state. Anyway, the only thing that concerns me is the sight offset, using a ruler it looks to be nearly 4" over the bore. For those who have their PS90's sighted in at 50 y...

Re: SS109 5.56, The Fleet Yaw Effect, and 5.7x28

Nope this is and 40 is already to heavy for best performance from the 5.7x28. I just re-watched Amendment #2's test of the T6B and it was very impressive. My only concern, and why I brought up this thread, is the Fleet Yaw effect. Apparently this is an issue that effects all FMJ/Solid rifle project...
