    sc-1 forearm splits

    Mine is sitting at service dept. Bought new 7/10/15 (only 500 rounds). Given the problem I am having with forearm and the same similar problems from others the fix goes deep. In order to fix the splitting forearms on the sc-1 FNH may have to go to walnut or use a bedding method to stop the forearm latch from moving and splitting the laminate forearm. Manages pull your resources together and make a good decision on the fix needed to make the sc-1 a good firearm. Or do a recall/BYBACK.

    Given FNH resources with Winchester and Browning NO one should have an issue at this time. The fix should have occurred. Had 2 yrs. of patience deciding to buy a SC-1 to shoot skeet with.

    I am hoping to see a different wood on the sc-1. Cant see the laminate compatible with that latching system for the long term of 1000's of rounds year after year. Grain or pattern of veneers run the wrong way. Wish I had realized that before I purchased it. RECALL/REPURCHASE/REDESIGN.

    I bought mine in Aug. of 20114, and had about 5k throught it before it split. I should have saved more and bought the Zoli I wanted...live and learn...This is an expensive lesson!
    I called the service center on the 21st, almost 2 weeks after they received my gun. I was told they were still looking for a new vendor, with no other information given. I asked if I would have it back by Oct. 4th for a shoot I wanted to attend, the answer "I wouldn't count on it, practice with your back-up to be ready"

    Ok got a very interesting update yesterday. FNH customer service representative told me that they have already been working on the problem, have produced a product that they believe will be a viable solution and it has undergone product testing already and passed. Now they are in the process of producing the part and will start shipping in about 3 weeks

    Fired my new SC1 for the first time yesterday. Midway through the second box of shells the forearm wood next to the receiver
    raised up approx. 1/4". Talked to Factory rep in MO this morning and he says a viable fix is still NOT available and asked me to call back every 30 days to see what might have transpired. FN Herstal has no ownership - registration database, hence an inability to contact us unfortunate owners. In the meantime, I'll glue, tape and secure the broken wood as best I can in hopes that the gun will remain serviceable until a factory repair is authorized. Sad deal for a nice shotgun that costs $2K.
