FS2000

Post by Peck1631 » 12 Feb 2015, 20:29

I don't understand what the deal is with this rifle. Is it getting phased out? Why is it so hard to find? Is it better than the Tavor? It seems like then Yeti of rifles.

They're out there, just not in the same numbers as the PS90.

They are on gun auctions sites like gunbroker, but they are kind of a specialty weapon so most places don't stock them.
If the Tavor had a better trigger, I would take one of those over a FS2000 any day. As it is, they're about equal on my list right now.

For the current time, FN has stopped importing/producing the FS-2000 due to poor sales and lack of interest.

Yes, you can find them at gun shows and on gunbroker. How hard is it to find the new Tavor trigger packs?

Maybe if they weren't so damned over priced. Add the that the Tavor that ether equals it on every point or beats it.

Not only that, later this year when Desert Tech brings out the MDR, it'll be one more nail in the FS-2000's coffin of ever returning. I would also think the MDR might drive down the street price of the Tavor, RDB, RFB, and AUG.

Desert Tech brings MDR, I like it.

Even more so having the option of .308 or 5.56.

The MDR looks a lot like the TAVOR. I like the ability to switch between calibers but then we've been promised that before :skep: :skep: :skep:

Hope the MDR trigger is better than the Tavor's.

First hand reports from the December press event (from bloggers I trust) have said that the trigger is extremely good. As for the calibers...given that it's Desert Tech and what they've done with the SRS, Covert, and HTI, I'm willing to take them at their word. First out of the gates will be 5.56mm and 7.62x51mm, followed by 6.8SPC, .300BLK, and 7.62x39mm. The extra calibers may not be offered in the first few months as they focus on getting the two base calibers produced, but I trust they'll be out within a reasonable (18 months or so) time frame, if not sooner.
