Went to my first gunshow today, a dealer told me that FN only makes rifles for the military. I thought Colt did.

I have never seen an FN m16 issued by our Army, all the A4's my unit got issued are from hartford conn.

I have friends in other units, same story

I thought delta force were the only ones aloud to use colt and all the other branches of the military had either hesse or professional ordinance?

gunshow dealers are 99.9% fucking asshats

FN makes the M16 A2 and A4, M240, M249, Mk48 Mod.0 (new version of the M60)

M2 is manufactured in USA by RAMO Defense, General Dynamics, in Belgium - by FN Herstal and by many other compabies.

Saco Defense Industries manufactures the MK19 GMG.



Colt makes the M4.

I think I got all that right after a bit of Googling.

What you are seeing is a lot of old Colts still in the system.

FN supplies the M16's when the .gov actually buys them NEW. M16's, over the years, have come from a number of manufacturers but the sole manufacturer now is FN.

Yeah, another one told me he was on a "Tac team, ex SF operator, stole his rifle from the SF" all while waving a .45 around so I could see down the bore.

I don't think I will be visiting any other gunshows, except if I don't talk to the dealers.
