    FNAR Mags

    The mag issue is ridiculous. I finally decided to be the high bidder no matter what. I did buy 3. I am pleased to say that the rifle is so accurate that I can print my initials at 100yds. My advice is to get the mags while you can at whatever price.

    What a joke! 120 for a 20rd magazine? Good job FN.

    Is there a reason that FN designed a new mag for the rifle? Are they just 'night and day' better than regular .223 AR mags or what?

    FNAR is a BAR (hunting rifle not military rifle) in .308 (that's FNAR as in BAR not AR15). They made proprietary mags because they are greedy I guess.

    What does FnAR have to do with the .223AR mags?:uhoh:

    Do you know what rifle people are talking about in this thread?:confused:

    I sure didn't. I saw a photo of a rifle on the most recent Shotgun News (didn't buy it) and thought it was a folding-stock AR rifle. I must have (yeah, obviously! ;-)) misread. Sorry for the confusion!

    clarification for those unfamiliar with FNAR

    Jaws said:
    The FN-AR (Fabrique Nationale - Autoloading Rifle, from FNH USA (http://www.fnhusa.com/le), is a .308 Win/7.62x51mm NATO police marksman rifle (or designated marksman rifle, DMR), not at all to be confused with a military sniper rifle (which often happens and causes sore points all around - don't go there!). It is available for USA public purchase. It is intended for 50 to few-hundred yards high-rate of aimed fire, stand-off support for law enforcement operations. It is relatively new, introduced in late 2008, only available in quantity in 2009, so controversy swirls as to its reliability, ruggedness, non-LE applications, etc., but everybody agrees that it is a highly accurate (sub-1 MoA factory guaranteed) and smooth-recoiling rifle (smooth for more rapid follow-up shots). It could be one of the best semi-auto .308s around (esp. for the money, ~$1400 give or take), but since it has minimal track record, don't go there either.

    Early adopters of the FNAR are working out the bugs at FNAR area at FN-sponsored user web site as well as on THR and elsewhere.

    Here is a photo of my heavy barrel (HB) FNAR at this page or nearby on same thread (same user_name). Photos are also here on THR; search on posts by me, jackdanson, gga338, ARLover and others; sorry I can't recall all OTMH.

    Fine rifle. I think you should buy one.

    Yeah, really! And how come they didn't just use Remington 742 mags? Or why not SKS clips? Oh wait ... it's a completely different rifle! :eek:

    Essentially it is a dumbed-down version of the old BAR, fitted with an aluminum receiver, multiple rails, no sights, and an angular, pistol-gripped, plastic stock.

    Things being the way they are, they will no doubt sell like hotcakes. :rolleyes:

    Oh, the irony!

    Just picked up an FN AR today, these are monsters and when you hold it you're gonna lagh at Ar's. I still can't believe a BAR is sitting next to me... this thing is pretty much a BAR, only better and upgraded.

    My local gun shop can get FN AR clips sent from other shops and there is one there now for 60 $ I got one spare, but really 20 rnds of 308... wow.

    Better and upgraded?

    A cheap plastic stock, lack of sights, and alumimum receiver are not improvements in my book. :scrutiny:

    Actually, for a police precision rifle it makes a lot of sense. Hope the trigger is a good one.

    Well it's very accurate, don't be a buzz kill.
