    FNs are only made under military contract. No commercial/civilian sales AFAIK.

    Otherwise, they should be on par with a Colt M16A4. Both companies build to the exact same specs and follow the TDP.

    Didn't think about that. But I assumed the OP was inquiring about an FN-manufactured AR-15, since one out of every three threads posted here is AR-15-this or AR-15-that.

    As far as FN made M16s, what's already been said by Tac Rubber Duck -- they're made to the US government TDP and are very good unless they're just clapped out from high round counts and passing through lots of hands (i.e. weapons assigned to basic training units).

    I never knew FN made an AR. I'm a big fan of FN products and I can't wait for the civilian SCAR to be released so I can add one to my collection. An FN AR-15 however is very intriguing.

    Aparently the FN-SCAR has already showed up in few gunshops in LA and OH:

    http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=6&f=24&t=262890&page=2 :)

    They started shiping to the dealers few good days ago.

    FN made AR-15's are only made for the military.

    +1 what Jaws said. FN doesn't make AR-15s, only mil-spec M16s (though I'm not sure why they couldn't, if they were so inclined).

    YEP!!!

    BAH, I don't know why my post didn't go through, that's weird, it kind of acted funny when I posted it, but I didn't want to double post ....

    I was asking about this

    http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=55810

    Saw one at a local shop and now I've got an itchy pocket. I could find very little info via the search feature and google. Anyone know anything about it, like what kind of gas system it uses? It almost looks like a FAL. Also anyone know what mags they use? One website I saw said AR10, which would be nice.

    The FN FNAR is based mostly on the FN BAR which is a very proven platform that i believe has been out since the 60's. This BAR has nothing to do with the USGI BAR (Browning automatic rifle) but still a very format able design.

    Yeah, I found the other thread about it too. I'm thinking I might go for it.....

    but it sure is ugly... but then again 20 rds of 7.62 guaranteed to hit within an inch or two sounds like fun.
