They ARE NOT THE SAME. (military parts would be) FN is prohibited from selling AR-15 parts into the civilian market. Any FN part is either a rejected part, a stolen part or some off brand that is being sold as FN.

I talked to the Sherluck folks at a gun show last weekend (and bought a flattop 20" compensated bull barrelled kit). If you get either the flattop with the T-marks or High-rise flattop, they make them themselves. Didn't ask about the standard uppers.

TO my knowledge, FN is basically using Colt's design. THey can do that, since the Gov't owns the design. But they can only make them for the Gov't, nobody else. I have spoken directly with the factory guys at a AUSA Army show and they told me directly that it is illegal for them to sell parts and guns to the civilian market Several other people on this board will confirm this, but I can't say where they got their information. If those guys are advertising FN parts, it might to worthwhile to call them on the carpent and get them to confirm it's the Fabrique Nationale (?) that manufacturers the military's weaons. It's not hard to have parts made by [b]F[/b]rank's [/b]Neat Parts to be called FN.

As I said, I was told it was illegal for them to sell guns or parts DIRECTLY from FN factory employees at a tradeshow.

Do a search on "FN uppers". This has been told and re-told. FN doesn't sell to the public and can't. FN from Sherluck or any body else stands for "Fabrique No-name".
