Re: FS 2000 Trigger Pull

It's a bullpup. They all have wonky triggers.
FN Five-seveN, FN PS90 & P90, and FN Weapon Systems Discussion Group
I was originally of the mindset that softer springs would be the solution until it resulted in malfunctions ranging from reset issues to doubles which gets you a free ride in the squad car. I've seen guys shave the hammer spur too. All these make for a dangerous firearm. These bullpups require heavy springs to keep them from going bang at the wrong time. It's possible to get a soft trigger but the mass and design of the sear takes very little force to move it backward when bumped or dropped. With my product, I achieved a 6# trigger on my STG (8# trigger with an AUG hammer group) and I was able to drop the gun on the buttstock from 6-8" onto concrete and it did not discharge. Cool, eh? I need a video of that. Anyway, the fix also has to incorporate the safety factors designed originally by FNH and not just an end result. I did find out that FN does sell the hammer group for $258 and its in stock for anyone who wants to buy this part before a ban is enacted.ninthinning wrote:drcoffee,
That is very interesting work you are doing. I am planning on buying an FS2000 but I am hesitant after reading the reviews on the web. It sounds like the trigger is a real kludge. I have seen pictures of the hammer group and it looks like the PS90 hammer group. The problem I see is the auto sear has been removed at the factory. If it still had the auto sear it would be possible to grind off the bolt trip and use the sear as a hammer sear by connecting it to the trigger. That would allow you to lighten the disconnector springs and hammer springs and should give a trigger pull weight of 4.5 pounds.
This is a warning to tread lightly with statements like that, illegal modifications will result in removal from the forum.RaYhoLio wrote:I'd also be very interestd to know if these trigger packs have been changed in the same way the PS-90s were... if not, I might want to buy up some of the packs.. because mine has the same 'ability' as the older PS-90 packs... And if it hasn't been modified yet... it will be.
No worries.. There will be no discussion of illegal modifications in open forum from me... Anyhow I was referring more to its collectibility as an investment.. I'm sure you've heard of dealer post samples? The people and business's who can legally make a post sample are very interested in the old PS-90 packs now.. making them a great investment... I was just curious if newer Fs-2000 have the same design as mine... I think mine is at least a few years old.. but since I got it used... I dunno for sure.f3rr37 wrote: This is a warning to tread lightly with statements like that, illegal modifications will result in removal from the forum.
Open forum or behind the scenes in PMs, it will not be tolerated anywhere on the forum.RaYhoLio wrote:No worries..

Thank you.RaYhoLio wrote:Gosh.. I'd kinda like to start up another topic about the effectivness of bans on information and dangerous things .. but I won't get into that here.
LOL again.. no worries.. I'm in no hurry to become an accomplis to a firearms crime.
Are you a forum sponsor now??drcoffee wrote:I have a product that has truely done wonders for the Steyr AUG and the FS2000 has a very similar hammer group. The result so far is 3/4 Lbs lighter trigger pull and significantly smoother pull. The part is called neu-trigger and can be found with a google search. On the AUG I've been able to lower the pull weight by 2+ Lbs. This can be installed permanently but removed at any time to go back to the stock configuration.
For those of you looking for a more permanent change, Look at cutting 2 or 3 coils from each trigger spring at the forward end. Cut one coil from each and test in between until you like the pull weight. Since these hammer groups are riveted together, there's only so much you can do.
All I can say is wow! those are some strong trigger springs. :skep:
