Early FN49s were equipped with a one-piece firing pin that may have contributed to slam fire. Check your FN49, very easy disassembly process, to ensure you have a two-piece firing pin with the correct spring.

My FN49 in .30-06 has the two-piece firing pin but I continue to be concerned with potential slam fire. To minimize this risk I reload to NATO standards using harder CCI 34 military rifle primers.
