I'll add to it.
Definitely NOT a battle rifle.
FN didn't build or intend it to be.
It's an accurate longer range semi-auto with useful features such as a stock that can be set up to fit the individual user, and with removable mags & the ability to put a good piece of glass on it.
Primarily law enforcement, then regular people who like what the gun is.
Not a field gun, difficult to service in the field, never meant to be a combat arm within the traditional meaning of the term. By field gun I mean mud, blood, rain, and so on.
