Both rifles feature a hard anodized aluminum, flat-top receiver with M-1913 MIL-STD rail at the 12 o’clock position, with A2-style front sight, and removable carrying handle mount with sights. The barrel for both rifles is button-broached and chrome-lined, with an A2-style compensator and 1:7″ twist, and a 2-piece ribbed hand guard. The AR-style magazine features an aluminum body with low fiction follower.

The FN 15 has a fixed stock with sling mount and storage compartment. The barrel length is 20″.

The FN 15 Carbine has a collapsible, 6-position stock. The barrel length is 16″.


FNX-45 Tactical – SHOT 2013

Thursday, January 17th, 2013


The FNX-45 Tactical is an update on the FNP-45 Tactical pistol. It features a polymer checkered frame with interchangeable backstraps, a serrated trigger guard, and picatinny accessory rail. The stainless steel slide features an external extractor with loaded chamber indicator, front and rear cocking serrations, and two mounting bases for the use of an electronic red dot sight. The barrel comes threaded for the use of suppressors or compensators, and all the controls are fully ambidextrous (decocking/safety lever, slide stop, and mag release). If you’re wondering what’s ultimately different between the FNP-45 and FNX-45 aside from a few improvements and aesthetic changes, the later uses a new magazine which is incompatible with the former model. To offset this a bit, a new FNX-45 comes with three 15 round mags.
