I wonder if the price will be competitive with the Colt rifles.
It's not a war on drugs, it's a war on personal freedom is what it is ok. Keep that in mind at all times.

There isn't anything about it in the magazine its an ad for another magazine made by recoil for fn. It does say winter 2013 in the bottom cover so it should be on shelves now. The magazine is called zeroed.

I have been searching but haven't found any info on them yet. I would guess they would be close in price to colt. I just hope they have some variety in models like maybe a chf 14.5"-16" mid length and a 20" rifle length would be nice. I just hope they don't just make a 16" carbine with m4 profile theres already plenty of those.

Stripped lower for my FNMI A2 upper. Would buy, dont care about cost.

Also curious of markings. My FNMI had F maked receiver, FN marked FSB, and bbl marked FNMI. FN marked BC? Also curious about bbl markings. Will it read FNMI, Cage code, or FN logo like the PSA bbls? I love FN and am excited about them coming to market.

The first AR I ever fired was an FN. I wouldn't mind one if they offer a LW barrel profile.

You can see the lower in the pic. I like the lower the roll mark is just this.

Model fn15
Caliber multi
Fnxxxxxxxxx

Other than that you can't tell much from the pic besides it having an m4 stock and removable carry handle.

I wonder if they'll offer more in the way of parts (lowers, BCGs, uppers, etc) than Colt does.

With the wide array of barrels they make, they are already ahead of the curve on Colt.

I'm curious to see exactly what they come out with. If it is just an M4gery with a detachable carry handle for ~$1000...Colt pretty much owns that segment (the as close to milspec as it gets M4gery segment). If they come out with M16A2s and A4s, they will be serving a new market segment, but a really small one.

The average AR owner (even the average soldier who may have carried one) doesn't know who FN is. I think that may doom their AR foray to failure, nobody knows they are worth it. All they know is expensive Colt, uber-expensive Noveske and budget DPMS/RRA/Bushmaster etc.

I hope so! I want their ARs to be successful, my first issued rifle was an FN M16A2 and I've plenty of experience with their other military offernings.

Larry Vickers posted this.



Since the industry rumor mill says FN is going to release AR style rifle(s) to the civie market for the first time after making them for the military for years I figured I'd show everyone my pre production prototype FN semi auto M4 style rifle I bought from a former FN employee awhile back

This was from a time a few years ago when FN was toying with the idea of a commercial market M4 clone - looks like it might actually happen this time

Enjoy !!!
