It's everything I thought it would be. Can't wait to shoot it this weekend.  

Kind of torn on what to put on it for optics.  I plan on giving this thing a whirl as a predator rifle for cougar and coyotes just for grins so some optics that are compact but have a little magnification will be needed.

I have a brand new Millet Tactical DMS-1 I was thinking of slapping on but can't decide.

Anyway, thanks for the help when I was trying to decide on rifles to buy.  Now on to the next two. lol!

EOTECH is a good way to go.

Check the FNHUSA website for the promotion on a free C-Mores reflex sight.

My vote is Eotech with a quick flip 3x or 4x behind it.

If you're only doing varmints though and don't need a CQB optic like the eotech, save your money and buy something less expensive in the 1-4 power range.

Eotech would be cool, but technically illegal in Washington.  No illuminated optics on hunting weapons.

I vote for a 1-5 low power magnification scope.

Congrats on the new gun, maybe I could come up and try it out.

Judochop, thanks for the welcome to the club. lol!

I sent FNH an e-mail yesterday afternoon to find out what I need to do to receive a free C-More sight.  If it doesn't get used for the FN,  I could throw it on a AR I guess.

I'm thinking maybe a low power short scope like you guys suggested would be a good pick. Steve, I forgot all about no electronics on hunting rifles.  Good point.  That eliminates the DMS I guess.  

I'll post a little range report after shooting it this weekend.

Thanks again, PW

Huh?

Could you show me where that rule is?

I’ve looked through the latest hunting regs and I don’t see anything about illuminated sights.

On page 68 under Prohibited Hunting Methods I see where you can’t hunt with lights, lasers, and night vision / thermal sights, but nothing about illuminated optics.  And I have yet to see an EOTech that is “capable of projecting a beam onto the target,” but maybe there’s a new model out.

Oh, and where are the pics of the FS2k?

You are correct!  I should have read that.  I was thinking of lasers I guess.  And it appears I could even use a laser on coyotes if I want but not cougars.  Thanks for pointing that out.  Might try that scope after all.  

"11. Using night vision and laser sights:
It is illegal to hunt deer or elk with the aid of
infrared night vision equipment or with laser
sights (not to include range finders) capable of
projecting a beam onto the target, while in possession
or control of a firearm, bow and arrow,
or crossbow."

I'll get some pics up this weekend. lol!
