So, what do you think? What are the odds of us seeing one within a year or two?

I haven't the faintest idea of the odds, but since FN is considering a civilian P90 perhaps they might also realize how well an FNC would sell? I would love to have one.

There was a post on AR15.com a month or so ago where a company by the name of Ohio Ordinance Works indicated they were in the process of tooling up to make domestic FNCs. That's the last I heard.

Just emailed them about it, thanks.

Isn't Ohio Ordinance Works the same company that makes the semi-auto BAR and M3 grease gun?

What's your best guess at to the price of the civi P90 if FN makes it?

OOW does make the semi-auto BAR. The M3 is by Valkyrie Arms.


What's your best guess at to the price of the civi P90 if FN makes it?

Probably around the same price as the automatic P90.

Oh goodie! I guess that one can scatched off the list until my lotto numbers hit.

And, until that happens, looks like more milsurps are in my future. I am so heart broken.:D

It's Ohio Rapid Fire that is making the FNC receiver, and will be offering FNC and AK5 kits (and I assume completed rifles too). I'm looking forward to getting one if they are at all affordable (crosses fingers)...

Here's the thread with mention of the receiver, and some buried tidbits throughout the thread. Please oh please be under $1k... http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=4&f=64&t=62141

Thank you. It is now on my to buy list, along with a registered sear. :)

So it is ORF I got to stop editing this response. By the way I heard they do great custom work.

I'm a little hazy on the NFA details...is it legal to drop a registered sear into one of these Guns that OOW or ORF is hypothetically making?

And, what are registered FNC sears going for?

I have about zero interest in a FNC...ho hum, another .223 carbine, and a butt-ugly one at that. Unless it is full-auto... :cool:

Thanks,
Mike

$3100-$3400 is the going rate for an FNC sear right now. I suspect however, that if new FNCs are manufactured the price of FNC sears will rise.

And as far as I know, it is legal to put a registered sear into a new manufacture receiver. I guess I should to check to makre sure, though, before I buy one. :)

As I thought, it is legal to put a registered sear into a new receiver. FNC, here I come. :)

UPDATE: Talked to Todd from ORF about the FNC.

He said lowers will start being cut next week, and they'll have them for sale 1-2 weeks after that. He said he expects them to be around $250-300.

They're going to be importing parts kits to go with the lowers. AK5 parts kits are around $2,200, and FNC kits should run around $1,500-2,000.

Well, I wanted one. Damn you supply and demand! :cuss:

$1500-$2000++ for a kit???? For crying out loud, there goes another gun I've been dreaming of getting....

No...

$300 for a receiver, and then you have your choice of kits.

$2200 for an AK5 kit, or $1500-2000 for an FNC kit.

So $1800 to $2,500 for a completed rifle, depending on what kind of kit you get.

That's what I said, 1500-2000 or more just for the kit, then the receiver and building hassles. That's just too much money for me, I was hoping for like $500-$700 kits. Going by Galil kit pricing I was hoping that would be doable, guess not. The receiver price is fair at least, maybe another source for kits will come along and drive the prices down...

FNC in 6.8spc would be BAAAAAAAD.

Misread your post.

I'm hoping someone other than ORF will make an FNC, and not just an FNC receiver.

The price is pretty high, with that kind of money invested you might as well just get the P90C, a real FN. Who knows maybe Indonesia will decide to get new rifles and we'll see an influx of kits like the Malaysian HK33s.

I need a home for my sear, though. Alas.

I can't imagine them making a domestic one. What kind of market is there for a SA rifle in .223 that is competing against the huge amount of ARs on the market. Especially when it would cost 2 or 3 times as much and may not be as reliable.

They're being made right now.
