I had the chance to do some shooting with several FNH rifles this past weekend. These were the full-auto counterparts to the semi-auto versions available on the US civilian market.

Very nice video as usual. Question about the F2000, in your time with it did any issues ever occur with the front ejection port? From some of the firing sequences it seemed like it might be possible to get a jam right at the end of the port.

I own a semi-auto FS2000 and I've tried to cause malfunctions by putting 6 empties in the ejection chute, closing the ejection port cover then firing it. I'm sure you could choke it eventually, but you would have to work at it.

I think if would be pretty hard to jam a F2k. The shells are "slammed" out of the chute by an arm off off the bolt carrier. So when the bolt goes back into battery, all that spring pressure is offshot to the brass being ejected.

It's a very clever design.

I would love to see someone do actual accuracy tests on Assault rifles.

You constantly hear of the M4 is more accurate than the AK 47 (which it is), and then the British SA 80 is extremely accurate etc etc.
But you never get to see proper accuracy tests.

If you could do that that would be interesting too see.

If only it were available to the masses(the select fire version). I really like the way FNH approaches firearms design.
