TFB contributor Miles Vining visited the FNH USA headquarters and had the opportunity to exaimine FN’s entry into the U.S. Special Operations Precision Sniper Rifle (PSR) competition.

By switching out the bolt head, barrel and magazine, a shooter can have a .308, .300
Win Mag, or a .338 Lapua rifle within minutes. This particular rifle has a U.S. Optics
scope mounted. The suppressor is wrapped in a rubber coating to reduce the heat
signature and the mirage effect from the heat of the suppressor when fired. The plastic
enclosure below the chamber is a storage space for the powered rail system that will
be added later. The stock can be folded onto the receiver and the rifle has 3 safeties;
bolt safety, firing pin block and a grip safety. Stock is adjustable for length of pull, cheek
piece raise, and has a short rail on the lower side to mount a monopod. This rifle will be available to the civilian sector as the “Ballista”.
