THE IMAGE ABOVE IS A PAID ADVERTISEMENT
I posted this in the Bullpup forums as well, but I'm hearing FN has discontinued production of the FS2000.
Any body know if this is true?

They may have sidelined it to produce the SCAR lines since they are in higher demand.

That's kind of what I was thinking. I've been waiting on a FS2000 since early December.

Only rumor I had heard was the possibility of FDE stocks coming out this year.

ETA: Apparently production has been halted for the time being. FN might be retasking resources to pump out more rifles that sell faster(ie SCARs). Hopefully we'll see the FS2000 return to production or hopefully a new and improved(and smaller) version.

I don't necessarily buy this 100%, though I know SCARs outsell most everything FNH sells.

For example, I have heard the the ps90 is also halted, but I am on 3 LE lists that number in the hundreds each waiting for a ps90. Those are going nowhere, and FNH is just sitting on it.

I definitely agree that the SCAR is most likely their front runner by far.

A recurring problem for FN is they seem to keep the civilian sales side pushed back even further than Colt did. No one has any idea what they are doing, or releasing, or anything at any given time. To succeed in the civilian market, you have to keep the public informed. FN just kinda ships when they want to...

I could see that, I don't think they are selling that great. I'd rather have an AUG if I wanted a 5.56mm bullpup

I'd say FN is worse than those two.

Actually I did order mine back in early Dec. before the S hit the F. I put it on layaway with a major seller who accidentally oversold mine. I keep in pretty constant contact bugging them about when they will get one seeing as I'm locked in on price for that one.

I just got notice that my PS90 shipped last week and I should have it tomorrow or Thursday. I have been waiting since January for it to come in.

SO halted production means discontinued? I'll wait for official announcement.

I was actually thinking of selling one of mine. If this is true, maybe I'll hold off.

I sent FN an email asking if the FS2000 was to be discontinued and I will update in the unlikely event I get a response.

According to the FN forum.net it's pretty much official

Some official FN communications say yes, some official communications say no. I have no idea.

I do know the Tri rail that was supposed to be discontinued came in the other day.

According to those who have talked directly with FNH, it's being temporarily discontinued until 2014.

Where did you hear that? I've heard from several sources who are in direct contact w/fn that it is officially discontinued (just the FS2000 not F2000)

I read it on another couple boards and a blog. I talked to FNH myself and they told me the FS2000 is officially discontinued, but that Herstal can continue production whenever they want to. His words seemed to imply (to me) that FNH can decide to resume on the drop of a dime.

Ah gotcha.

I hope they continue making more in the future, I really like my "Tactical Tuna"

Oops.
I misread your thread title. I thought it said discounted, not discontinued. I got excited there for a moment.

This doesn't sound good for the FS2000. Bullpups are a niche market as it is, and with the arrival of the Tavor, I can see it eating into FS2000 sales.
