    Geared up PS90

    Ok, I got my stuff in - FINALLY. Set everything up and bore sighted the Eotech at 50 yards behind my house. Now, I'll fine tune it at the range. Also sighted the laser in at 7 yards - home defense emergency distance

    Have a Scorpion flashlight mounted on the other side

    Looks like your getting all your ducks in line there Ship. When you going to get a chance to take it out to the range and give it a live fire workout? Good luck with it.

    Friday or Sat

    I also have been trying to figure out how to keep it in my closet without always having it in the case. It doesn't work too well on a traditional hanging wall rack. And, I don't have a gun safe (but will have a gun closet when I get a combo doorknob)

    So, I came across this by accident at wal-mart today - It works very well





    I put it in the middle of the brackets, and lean it sideways. The hook catched the holes in the stock

    Neat rig Ship. the hook might also work if you hang it from the ceiling. Hanging the PS90 by the front grip. where it is about shoulder high. for fast deployment.

    Haha.

    I will have my strap on monday for it, and then I am good to go

    And, for the first time EVER, I can shoot a rifle with my dominate left eye (I am right handed). Now, I can actually use the eotech like it is supposed to be - with both eyes open. I've never been into rifles before because of this problem...

    When I shoot a rifle with my right eye, I have to close one eye.

    This mount is high enough to give me a perfect cheek weld using my left eye

    Their are iron sights on this model of gun, but they are not very good. It's a last resort kinda thing. No one ever uses them, and it is my understanding that they can be off. It's a very small groove on each side of the gun, depending on if U are right or left handed. Its not made to shoot w/ iron sights. It came with an optical sight already mounted. But, it doesn't work well in low light. Most people just replace it w/ something else.

    I put the EOtech on and used a laser boresighter last night. I guessed 50 yards based on property lines, and zeroed it in that way. I can make fine adjustments at the range this weekend.

    Yes, I like it a lot. Has a wide field of views - better than the red dot sights. I like it a lot. I almost got the AA version, but as the rails are not very long, I opted for the N battery version. I know that 200 hours will last me way more than a year, but I'll probably get in the habit of changing out the batteries 1x a year to play it safe.

    Just check it every now and then. It'll last a looooong time. Remember, it turns itself off after a while. I think it's after 4 hours. That means you could turn it on 50 times and never turn it off before it went dead.

    I thought I read that if U turn it on with the "down" arrow, it turns off after 4 hours. And, if U turn it on with the "up" arrow, it shuts down after 8. Something like that. It was 2 different amounts. Anyway, yea, it will last a while.

    that's a pretty wicked lookin piece of hardware you have there Ship ... is that the FN that rotates (so to speak) the cartridges? "as in" the round is loaded horizontally to the weapon and is rotated & then fed into the breach? pretty cool. Maybe I'm thinking of a different FN...?
    Merry Christmas to you .........

    No, this is the one. The mag is horizonal, and the rounds rotate 90 degrees to enter the barrel.

    Ship, have you been to the 5 7 forum? I saw on there that some ammo didn't like to make the turn. It would jam the bolt from going into battery.

    Yes, I have been on there for a while. There are some older ammo types in 5.7 that are not made any longer - The 3 that are available to civilians seem fine. I haven't read anything about that - and I spent time going thru pretty much all the messages that have something to do with the PS90.
