    I believe it means full-auto and semi, but no burst. There is already a version in use like that, I understand (haven't seen it).

    M4 (no A1) is Safe-Semi-Burst
    M4A1 is Safe-Semi-Full

    I hope FN sells AR to civilans in the future, I know a little late to a crowded market but it is not like the price could be higher than the FN FS2000 and the FN SCAR they sell

    True enough. I think (and could be wrong as it was a while ago) that one of my A2s in the service was a FN. I know the M249 was.

    I had a PS90 and FN 5.7 as well. They make great stuff.

    I do remember that the ARs mags were Checkmate, well at least some of them were. They were a mixed bunch.

    PSA has had 16" uppers for sale ($399-$499) for 7 days in a row now. They sell out daily but it's great to see them for sale daily if even for 2-3 hours :)

    So, if a company sells rifles built off HK91 parts kits, but also substitutes some parts of their own or from other manufacturers, would you still claim it was an genuine HK91?

    Well when you find FN AR15 receivers for sale, you let us know.

    That was kinda my point - just because FN is making parts for some companies doesn't make them FN AR-15s.

    FN won't be able to sell AR-15s to civilians. I believe it is part of the contract. But good for FN, they make quality products. Every M16 I've ever held is FN.
     
  16. 'bout time they started renovating.

    Lots of old rifles being used.

    Old receivers maybe. Most of the "Old Rifles" have been through reset and come out with new barrels, new parts etc, several times.


    All my guns go to gauging and refit every time we come home from a deployment. If they make it through the deployment intact.

    It means some units are ditching the M-4, to go to the M-4a1, which is full auto.
