Re: MKII Failure to fire issue...

As a follow up, shot my Five seven at the range last weekend and after cleaning the FP channel she is running as good as ever.
Thanks again for all the help guys.

Re: MKII Failure to fire issue...

I cleaned out the FP channel out last night and there was no doubt how gunked up the firing pin was. No brass shavings but the lube I used looked like it had started to down and became more of a gel. All cleaned and ready for the range. I'll let everyone know how it goes. Thanks again for the great ...

Re: MKII short stroking issue...

It's not short stroking, it's having a failure to fire. I'd remove the slide cover and firing pin. Sounds like there's brass shaving in the firing pin channel, which we've seen happen here a few times Got it failure to fire. I'll take a stab at pulling the slide apart and inspect the firing pin cha...

MKII Failure to fire issue...

I'm stumped by my MKII failing to fire any round I try... I have a near new MKII, only 200rds through, cleaned after every use, that seems to short strike every round I try to fire. It happened for the first time a few weeks ago and I chalked it up to sitting in the safe for 6 months. Came home clea...

Re: Hunting Photos

Abalone, what broadhead did/do you use for turkey? I haven't bowhunted for turkey yet but I was thinking of getting some guillotine broadheads & give a shot. Out of all the game I have taken with a bow I am most impressed with a turkeys ability to deflect or take a direct shot from a high powered b...

Re: Hunting Photos

Very nice man! :thumb: Glad I'm not the only one to post pictures. I understand the left handed issue. I'm right handed, but left eye dominant, so I know where you're coming from. Thanks. Beautiful whitetail by the way, and excellent choice in caliber. The 7mm, although a shoulder thumper, is a swe...

Re: T6 Black

I was one of the lucky ones and can appreciate being frustrated if you were not.
Taking your frustration out on the EA team seems silly as they did their best to make this process fair.
Thanks EA team, I look forward to having this ammo for home protection and protecting my family.

Cali the land of fruits and nuts w/lots of awesome fishing..

Well living in California can be a challenge to say the least. The disconnect people have from the natural bounty that surrounds them has always surprised me. From foraging for wild edibles, mushrooms, wild game, and fish there is no end to the awesomeness California has for those willing to chase a...

FN 5.7 MK2 Accurizing and Night sights question...

New to this site but had a question I could not find an answer to using the search functions. I am a new owner of a FN 5.7 MK2 and just love this pistol. Does EA offer Accurizing and Night Sight upgrades for this new model? I know it has not been out long but could benefit from this kind of work. Th...
