This would not be the first time that a Field Acceptance Test would not yield the same results as a Factory Acceptance Test. It is unfortunate that our small arms are tested under 'combat' conditions before they are actually ready for combat.  Seems like a certain Rifle, Caliber 5.56 mm, M16 had several issues in the beginning, as did the M9.
