FN rolled out new variations on its FN 15 series, introducing a pistol variant in two calibers and a flat dark earth carbine ahead of the industry’s biggest event, SHOT Show.
Chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO or .300 BLK, the FN-15 pistols offer barrel lengths in either 10.5 or 12-inches. The cold hammer-forged, chrome-lined barrels feature a 1-in-7-inch twist paired with carbine and pistol length gas systems for “optimal performance.”
Each AR pistol sports a M-LOK equipped rail, fixed low-profile stainless-steel gas block and FN combat trigger weighing between 4.5 and 7.75-pounds. Rounding out the AR pistol lines accoutrements is a SBX-K Pistol Stabilizing Brace, added to make the pistols a little more Instagram-worthy. The AR pistols carry a price tag of $1,599.
Next in line to be added to the FN 15 series is the FN-15 Tactical Carbine in the tactically adored Flat Dark Earth color scheme. The FDE carbine boasts an enhanced Mil-Spec lower receiver paired with a match-grade free-floating, chrome-lined barrel. In keeping with the FN Tactical look and feel, the FDE version is outfitted with a 3-prong flash hider, B5 grip and 12.5-inch
