Re: FNH 5.7 quit ejecting

I've got plans to do an 80% 1911 in .460 Rowland down the road. Gonna be tough since I know zero about the 1911 platform. Let me know if you need tips.... But 1911 is easy. You can probably figure it out. Everything with that action is pretty intuitive. I had to go with an oversized firing pin, fit...

Re: FNH 5.7 quit ejecting

... and your die's refusal to resize brass without destroying it. I think it was mostly the press I was using, and / or the lube. Everything is fine now. The Rcbs case lube / Break Free combo was good, but I finally got some Hornady One Shot, and it is even better, including on the old brass... ......

Yeah. Every time I have tested FN ammo with it it was pretty close to specs. 20-40 fps over , but I'm at high altitude.

Re: FNH 5.7 quit ejecting

Thought you guys might be interested in some further details... I find it interesting anyway, that apparently due only to the tighter fit on that brass plug that I made, and/or its extra weight (about 40 grains more than the OEM loaded chamber indicator pin and spring), there is indeed a difference ...

Re: FNH 5.7 quit ejecting

Well, cool.!! Not only did I get the pistol functioning , I tried resizing the brass this afternoon.. (Just the stuff that I shot a few days ago from my test-firings), and I had no trouble at all with the sizing. Not sure why it worked so well this time, after nothing but anger and frustration befor...

Re: FNH 5.7 quit ejecting

What a weird pistol, never would have crossed my mind that a missing LCI would shut it down like that. ....... Amazing and a mechanical design error. Indeed. I'd probably never have considered it had not panzermk2 hinted about it back in an older thread: http://www.fivesevenforum.com/viewtopic.php?...

Re: FNH 5.7 quit ejecting

YAY! It is functioning now. :guns: Amazing what that little hole will do to the delayed blowback operation. Just to see if this was going to be an easy fix or something major wrong, I machined a temporary plug out of brass just to fill the hole and see if it would function properly. It does! Woo Ho...

Re: FNH 5.7 quit ejecting

Is your name Richard Lewis? Cause he lives like that and packs a FsN. Heh, Nope. The 5.7 is my "going to town during the zombie apocalypse" gun. My EDC is a .454 or a .460 Rowland or a "Judge" depending on my mood... I'm a lot more likely to run into a bad tempered (black) bear, or perhaps a mean w...

Re: FNH 5.7 quit ejecting

Some pictures of the missing LCI would help us figure out what happened. Can you see anything odd going on from the inside of the slide with it removed? All factory ammo it sounds like, yeah? I'll see about doing some photos in a day or two. Yep, all factory ammo. I've tried reloading but after goi...

FNH 5.7 quit ejecting

Hi Guys. Long time lurker, first time poster, so thanks for what I have learned from you previously. The other day, my pistol stopped extracting and ejecting when fired. It functions perfectly when manually operated, Feed, fire, extract and eject perfectly, no binding at all. After a few shots manua...
