    went out with some friends for a session at the range today and got talking to a guy with a FN PS90, he offered to let me take a few shots with it so i did,,,, i took one shot with it and it failed to eject, he then took 2 shots and the same thing happened, after a few more times of this he put it away and said he was gonna take it to his smith, anybody have any expierience with one of these ? are they reliable ? seemed a little goofy holding it but definetly had the cool factor.

    9 times out of ten, failure to eject are mag issues, sometimes ejectors... In the case of a PS90, I have 0 idea what would be the issue.

    I want one though.

    They should be reliable, but the owner may not have kept the gun clean, took it out and shot it right out of the box, not cleaned properly and it has some gunk issues... Who knows.

    I have a couple hundred rounds through mine and it hasn't had a single issue yet.

    Personally I wouldn't take a PS90 to a gunsmith, I would send it back to FN for diagnosis and repairs. If there is a problem with the gun they will most likely fix it at no cost and pay for shipping as well.

    Yeah that needs to be a warranty thing for sure. Mine has hundreds of rounds through it without any malfunctions of any kind, ammo or gun related.

    Wonder if it was reloads?

    I've got a PS90, and I haven't yet had a single failure of any kind.
