FNH USA just announced it has sported up its FN-15 AR lineup with five new rifles that take the same base model of the FN-15 and dial them out with top-end components, new furniture and name-brand internals.
New to the lineup are the FN-15 Tactical Carbine with free floating, chrome-lined, cold hammer-forged barrel for increased life and easier cleaning. It also comes with enhancements such as a 3-prong muzzle brake to reduce flash, a mid-length gas system and H1 buffer to decrease recoil, a Magpul grip, buttstock and M-LOK accessory mounting system, and an ALG Defense combat trigger for smoother pull, a cleaner break and less grit. MSRP on the Tactical Carbine is $1,479.
The FN-15 DMR has an 18-inch match-grade, cold hammer-forged barrel with a 1:7 twist to enhance stability and accuracy for heavier grain precision shooting ammunition. It also comes with pre-installed Magpul MBUS Pro backup iron sights and a Magpul M-LOK accessory mounting system. MSRP on the DMR comes in at $1,899.
The FN-15 MOE SLG is the result of partnering with Magpul to equip the FN 15 Carbine platforms with the latest and most desired Magpul AR accessories. The new MOE SLG, the first AR-15 to feature the Magpul MOE SL accessories, will come standard with features like a 5.56 mm chambered, 16-inch chrome-lined, alloy steel, button-broached barrel as well as the new Magpul MOE SL trigger guard, forearm, hand guard, stock and rear sight assembly. The MOE SLG comes in at $1,169.
The FN-15 Patrol Carbine offers the same features as the standard FN 15 Carbine model but has a 16-inch alloy steel, button broached, chrome-lined barrel with 14.5-inch sight radius, Samson flip-up rear sight for compact and reliable back-up sighting and a Midwest Industries drop-in 7-inch quad rail/forearm for increased adaptability and front gripping options. The Patrol has an MSRP of $1,219.
Last but not least, the FN-15 Sporting is a 3-Gun competitor’s dream gun. FNH USA was kind enough to send along a T&E sample of the Sporting to Tactical Retailer for a test run and literally it is one of the smoothest AR rifles we’ve ever shot. The Sporting was designed for competition – chambered in .223 Remington, it features an 18-inch match-grade, cold hammer-forged, chrome-lined barrel, a SureFire ProComp 556 muzzle brake to reduce recoil, a Timney competition trigger for a crisp break with a short reset, a Magpul grip and buttstock, and a 15-inch Samson Evolution accessory rail.
So far we’ve only run about 50 rounds through the FN-15 Sporting, but the Timney trigger is super crisp, the brake keeps the shots on and the rifle-length gas system delivers a supple recoil. We’ll do a much more in-depth review and video of the Sporting soon, so stay tuned.
