As seen here at the FN website.

-Who makes a chrome-lined 1-9 (I shoot a lot of 55gr, so 1-7 ain't for me) 20" A3-style upper? So far, I know that Bushmaster does. Anyone else?

-What sort of handguards are on there? Are they a free-floated RIS, or just some generic 4-rail handguards?

-What sort of optics is the Corp issuing? I don't see many (compared to the Army), and what I see is generally either a Aimpoint on a goose-neck, or a ACOG of some flavor. Are those the two most common?

Thanks!

Good deal! Will you be updating the website when you have those in?

I have found several Chrome-Moly barrels in the configuration I am looking for, but 'Go chrome or go home' has been beat into my head for too long now!

They are Knights Armament rail system and they are not free floating. I don't remember the model. They work really well. Mostly we use the ACOG TA31F scopes along with a bunch of personally purchased Aimpoints. We just don't have enough ACOGs yet but they are buying more.
