fas 6890

ok, time to start

i got at fas 6890 on a gunsafe, it dont work as i should, it jams a litte halfway when i turn the key
i have ordered a new lock, but when i have it , i would lite to get i rigt and use it

i did get new key, but that dident help, (i needed new key anyway, i dont trust them as a did buy it used)

i did take it apart, cleaned it , greesed it and it did work perfekt fore a while, but now i get the same litle jam halfways when i turn the key, but i works when i do a small key in out it works

i dident feel any dents anywhere inside of the moving parts

and, what grease should i use?

Re: fas 6890

The 6880 I have is only very slightly oiled where the levers are. If you put something inside you have to ensure that is an oil which will NOT harden over time. You could look into the open lock and try to determine why it gets stuck. Maybe there is a reason which can be identified and removed.

Btw. what is the techical dfference between the 6880 and the 6890?

The 6890 is X Ray Proof.

Re: fas 6890

I read something like this, but the 6890 I have doesn't look like that. For this I would have expected the parts on the bolt side to be made from plastic, but they are not. I can't see any difference besides the two locks besides the sticker and I haven't heard of forged/manipulated locks. Also being x-ray proof is in Europe no reason to get a higher security rating.

Re: fas 6890

I do not have already control inside parts of 6890 to compare with to 6880.

Have you seen fe a lead shield between the lock case and levers ?
Levers are still brass manufactured ?

Re: fas 6890

No lead shield, still brass levers. My 6880 weighs 658g, the 6890 653g.

Re: fas 6890
