Default FN at the Movies mistakes

There's a couple of mistakes on this page. First, the link to The Mummy when discussing the SCAR goes to the 1999 movie when it should link to the 2017 movie. Additionally, it mistakenly states that the FN 509 was one of the finalists in the MHS trials. While I don't have an exact timeline of when each competitor was eliminated, I know for a fact that the finalists were Glock with their 17 and 19 MHS variants and the eventually victorious P320.

I also think the comment that the 509 "should have won" the MHS contract doesn't really belong on the page considering its historical context as that's purely an opinion.

It's a wiki, feel free to make the change. Or at least point it out on the talk page.

I can't because only admins can and I have, but so far it's gone unnoticed.

Not sure if this is OBE or not, but we can always temporarily unlock pages so that you can edit. Just let us know.

Yeah, I should have thought to ask that. Evil Tim did just that with the Homefront page for me to make some corrections a while back.
