I promised a range report on the FN FS2000 so here it goes. I took the rifle out to the range right after i picked it up but had not downloaded the pic to post it here. The FS2000 shoots so nice. I used Privi Partizan 5.56 ammo and it seemed pretty accurate. I had no feeding or ejection issues with the rifle or ammo.

The recoil is much softer than a standard AR and points very well. The trigger is heavy but expected for a bulpup. I used an Eotech 512 along with a 2.5X magnifier mounted on a LaRue Tactical pivot mount. I only tried it at 50yrs and it was pretty accurate. I was in a hurry and didnt have time to do some 100yrd shooting. But i expect this rifle to be at least 1 moa. And this is not with the really any great long range optics. I do believe that with better optics and match ammo, the groups would be even tighter.

I'd buy one...if it was more durable and had more metal parts.

^^^Why do you think that its not durable? I have heard a few cases of the plastic on the charging handle braking and that issue has been resolved. I have not heard of anything else. Also the FN customer service is top notch.

The recoil is much softer than a standard AR and points very well.Really? That surprises me--I would've thought that a plasticky bullpup would recoil more.

Any chance of you posting a better picture of that rear sight? It doesn't really look like there IS one.

And out of curiousity, does that thing take PMAGs? I've toyed with picking one of those things up......when I have an extra $2000.

The rear sight folds down. The rifle is a decent weight of around 7+ lbs. It is well balanced enough for me to hold it in one hand, arms stratched without strain or fatigue. The balance point is around the tigger area.

I'd get one if it wasn't the same price as 2 ARs and 3 thousand rounds of ammunition.

Nice rifle, I'd consider buying one but they are too expensive for me. For how fat the gun is it points and feels quite nicely. I've never shot one but handled one fairly often.
