Does anyone know about how much they weigh and how many FPS do you lose with the shorter barrel? Also when does the accuracy start to show with the shorter barrel

Check the FalFiles with the ballistic question. www.fnfal.com then check the archives

tayous1 That is a good question to bring up and a good topic. A general rule of thumb is for every inch of barrel loss you lose 100 fps +or- a few. The accuracy question is one not asked much. The short barrel is every bit as accurate as long one. The slower velocity is prone to not stabilize a bullet as far,thus a reduction in range not accuracy.

7mm-- I believe the actual loss is in the neighborhood of 125 to 150 fps TOTAL going from the 21" Standard rifle to the 16.25" Carbine (about 25fps/foot). Tayous--the Carbine handles MUCH better than the longer gun, however, with the muzzlebrake, it is significantly louder also. AFARR

That's being mild... It is loud. Very nice gun, wish I hadn't sold mine. Great quality, cheap mag's.
