    FNC Sear on GB

    www.gunbroker.com/item/737816500

    Haven't seen a sear for sale for a while now.
    "Buy It Now" for $10,800.00 just makes me cringe though.

    Somebody please invent a time machine.


    I don't remember what the sears went for but I do remember walking past dozens of FNCs all lined up on venders tables at the local gun shows. What were they? 500-600ea.

    True,
    But my father always said "if I had a time machine he would buy ocean front property not guns." I would have bought bitcoin.

    The problem with the sear, its going to getting a rare fnc

    I have an FNC with S&H sear.

    After I bought it I convinced myself to buy a semi FNC 'just in case'.

    Some day if I sell it will be a package deal.

    That will defiantly increase the value. It's a shame the fnc is not as common as the ar-15.
    They are amazing guns. The one I shot, didn't have a last round bolt hold open. I was disappointed but I heard they have them, they just didn't have them in the U.S. Back in the 80's. I could be wrong though.

    Part of the reason I think you can still get either sear or converted gun/sear fitted guns for cheep is parts ..As one of the former SOT on another board said it can be very very hard to get key parts to the guns like firing pins etc ..Either having to custom make them or canbilize another gun no real suppliers anymore and FN is not making the stuff at least for the USA for a long time

    Prob whey most seem to hover near sub gun pricing still

    That said having used a semi auto FNC I would love a sear for it ..But until I knew I could find critical parts like springs,firing pin I would be unsure

    Springs and firing pins are not so difficult to find (relative) for the FNC. Bolts and carriers are the challenge.

    Correct on all points. Firing pins have been available in SS and Ti for quite a few years, firing pin spring too. Recoil springs, hammers and extractors are easy to get.

    Bolts and carriers the hardest.

    how often do bolt/carriers need replacing in FNCs? Just curious if anyone here 1st hand has been forced to replace either?

    I do have a spare FNC semi gun in the safe but really really would hate to cannibalize it.

    The cam on the top of the bolt wears and causes problems or can but as long as you pay attention to it then they will last forever.

    I have seen photos of and have heard of FNC bolts cracking.
