    Way too expensive, both to buy and shoot. I don't particularly care for the long barrel. I have handled one though and if I had a bazillion dollars, I would probably biuy one.

    I haven't heard a single bad thing about them. There aren't many owners because of the price and the price of the round it fires. From what I hear, the 5.7 round uses the .224 bullets. If it's true, you really should try to reload for it. Don't know who makes dies for it but someone must.

    I personally think that you'd be better served with an AR15 or a FN FS2000. You could then get a 90 or 100-round magazine(and plenty of 20's and 30's) in a weapon that fires a superior and much more common round. But if you absolutely must have the PS90, you won't be satisfied 'till you get it.

    I have only handled the PS90 and haven't fired it. Seems like a solid albeit bizarre carbine. Doesn't have a bad feel to it.

    See, i've never been a huge rifle fan - But, at the last gunshow, I seriously looked at ARs and other cheaper alternatives to the PS90. I didn't find anything that I liked as much. When U hold the PS90 up to you, I really like the feel of it.

    Yes, I plan to buy one by the end of Dec. Still trying to decide if I will SBR it. I ordered the ATF paperwork, and will decide later...

    Just do it, all the cool kids are doing it. It raises the cool factor 10 fold.

    Well, I have heard mixed stuff about the balance of the short barrel if it has the added weight of an eotech (which sits higher than the stock sight). So, that's why I am trying to decide. Plus, if I do it, I'll have to sell a gun to pay for it.

    Only 2 I could part with is either my HK USPc or my Glock 34. I shoot the Glock better than the USPc, and the Glock also has 17 round mags. So, if I have to sell one, it would probably have to be the USPc.....

    I have the XLP on mine, the sight is right above the grip, so it doesnt affect it at all.

    Well, I'll probably give it a month or two and get used to it, then decide if I wanna do it.

    I wish that there was a way to save the longer barrel, to make it possible to trade back and forth. But, CMMG keeps the original barrel if ya send it to them. And, P99 guy offered to help me do it if I drive to Ft Worth, but he just uses the easiest solution of cutting the old barrel to get that flash hider off before U remove it.

    Drilling out that pin would be the best way, but it is also the most complicated.

    I zipped the old barrel off with a dremel, it takes seconds. if I want a longer barreled bullpup, I will buy the fs2k.

    Man, this morning I found a dealer in Dallas who has 3 black PS90s. He doesn't have a shop but does gun shows. All set to drive up there TODAY. 3 hours drive each way, but I'd do it. He had to wait to hear back from his wife, as he thought she had some plans for him.

    I wait 90 min for a call back that he claims he would do in just a few min. My day is free w/ no apts, and I even called my boss to make sure I could take the rest of the day off. But, when the dealer does call, he says that he can't do it today... He could do it tomorrow, but I am full of apts.

    Uggggggg!!! I could have had 1 in my hand today.

    He is going to a gun show 3 hours away this weekend, and he claims he will hold me 1 there. He has 3, and he stated that they would probably all be spoken for by the end of the day. But, he claims he'll hold me one. He better if I drive 3 hours.

    Kinda irritated now.......

    I wouldnt buy from him, I would find someone else, if he did want to wait for you to get there, that tells me he doesnt want your business that bad.

    Well, I would agree, but I don't have much choice if I want a black one at a decent price w/o ordering from a net ad.

    If I wanted a green, I wouldn't fret and would just wait for the next Houston show. Greens are easy to find.

    At the last Reliant show, many vendors were charging several hundred extra for the black ones.

    Well, I kinda wonder - IF I did ever wanna sell it (if I needed the money for something one day) - short barreling it limits the buyers. Also, what if the govt become WAY govt unfriendly and starts making it harder for people to own something like that. The ATF has everyone's name and address and can come get those type of guns.

    And, if U used the short barrelled gun in a self defense shooting, it could look worse on U if it went to trial, or if U are being sued. While I am mostly getting mine for range use, and tend to use handguns for home defensive purposes, it might be tempting to pick up the PS90 if ya need a gun.

    Just thoughts running thru my head. Is a 4 or 5" shorter barrel worth the $500 it will cost between the barrel and flash surpresser and the govt fees)... I won't make up my mind for sure until I get mine in my hand and have some time with it with the longer barrel.

    Plus, as I have a kid coming, I won't be buying another gun for a while. I am not sure I wanna sell a pistol to pay for it...

    Just random thoughts going thru my head....

    If you have ever boughten a gun legally, the atf already has your name.

    And, if U used the short barrelled gun in a self defense shooting, it could look worse on U if it went to trial, or if U are being sued. While I am mostly getting mine for range use, and tend to use handguns for home defensive purposes, it might be tempting to pick up the PS90 if ya need a gun.
    I will worry about that when I am alive to tell about it.

    Sbr will be a ton easier to manuever and increases the coolness factor.

    That is another reason to sbr it, since it will be so small you might grab it instead of a pistol if you need to defend you family in a crisis, but as a family man you also need to get your priorities straight(which you seem to have straight already) and they do come first.

    Tough decision

    I was dead set on doing the SBR before I had my PS90 and once I got it, I decided the long barrel wasn't bad at all. It is a huge headache for 5 inches. As far as selling it, if you are able to keep the old barrel undamaged when you take it off, it is my understanding you can put the old barrel back on when you get ready to sell it and file a form with ATF which will un- SBR it. Of course, $200 and the cost of the barrel are basically flushed away.

    He He He. If you only knew the whole story.

    Okay, I admit it! I still want to SBR it. Like Shipwreck though, once I buy a gun, I have a really hard time letting go of them. It was all I could do to sell my Colt LE AR-15 but it was fetching too much money and I got the PS90 and 3/4 of the FiveSeven with what I sold the AR-15 for. Maybe I will ask for the short-barrel for Christmas and the Tax Stamp for my birthday.
