    newbie question

    First time I tried my fs2000 on the range. When my time was up I believe I removed my mags, pulled the charging handle, check if there's a load, pulled the trigger no shot. I thought it was already ok to leave so I bagged my fs then went home. First time to strip so I tried checking again to make sure but it seems like it's loaded as I cannot pull the charging handle anymore. I'm planning to go back to the range tomorrow morning to make sure that there's no bullet lodged on it. Are there any other ways to check ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Lift up the Chamber cover and look when you pull CH back?? You can use a Cleaning rod, if you can get someone to measure an empty chamber bbl then you can stick one in your muzzle end and measure how far it goes...??

    I can't pull back the CH as it doesn't want to move, and the switch inside the cover also doesn't move.

    I haven't tried to measure the barrel. I'm planning to go back to the range and try to fire it if there's a spent shell or live inside. Just to be sure before I strip it down. Is it safe to disassemble it even when it doesn't want to charge like this?

    thanks.

    I would just disassemble it. When you separate the two halves, there will be nothing around to strike the primer so even if it is chambered, you'll be safe.

    If you can, take some pics. I think we'd all benefit from them. My FS has been nothing but 100% .. so some pics of a failure like this might be good for education.

    OK, that's good to know that I can disassemble it safely. I'll take some pics during this process and post it here. If there are other suggestions that would be great.
    Thanks again.

    I do not own one, and I am not a Gunsmith. Be sure to Double check anything I suggest with a Gunsmith. I would hate if firing it caused failure.

    +1 on Disassembly if safely possible..

    Contact Jim @ Stryker Enterprises a Forum Vendor he will have the safe answers, so will Moderators JHS, HK SD9 TACTICAL, or Talhoffer!!!

    I tried disassembly. One thing though is that I cannot remove just the upper. The bolt carrier is attached to the upper and I can't seem to detach it from the upper. Any advise ?

    I think I know, to release the hammer I have to mpress the trigger which I don't want to do. I just have to inspect first if there's a live ammo inside.
