I see these advertised,on Boards & at Gun Shows but no markings are present. Are these for real or what? BTW,I did a 30 day search w/no results.

AFAIK, FN Manufacturing, Inc. (FNMI), the current M16 contractor, cannot sell parts, rifles, etc. to the commercial market. As I understand it, what is being sold as "FN" parts are parts (hopefully) made by *subcontractors* who make parts for FN, but they have not gone through FN's QC, final machining, finishing, etc. There is a post somewhere else on AR15.com discussing the new terminology in ads - they no longer claim "FN". Hmm, you think someone in South Carolina got miffed? Here's FNMI's web site: [url]http://www.fnmfg.com/index.htm[/url] My personal take on this? The parts may be perfectly fine, but I think it's B.S. to claim they're "FN parts."
