New FN 15 Rifles for 2015

    Tactical Carbine

    FN America announced five new models in the company’s FN 15 line of MSR. The new guns will be the Tactical Carbine, DMR, MOE SLG, Sporting, and Patrol Carbine.

    The Tactical Carbine will have a 16″ free-floating barrel topped with a three-prong flash suppressor, a 12″ Midwest Indistries M-LOK handguard and Magpul MBUS Sights. Additional Magpul MOE furniture is standard. The MSRP is $1,479.

    The Sporting rifle is designed for competition. It has a free-floating 18″ barrel with a Surefire ProComp 556 brake and a Timney competition trigger. The gun has a Samson hand guard and Magpul stock. The MSRP is $1,749.

    FN’s new DMR is a Sporting rifle with a more “tactical” flavor. It uses the same barrel, brake, and trigger. However, it swaps out the Samson hand guard for a Midwest Industries 15″ M-LOK one and adds Magpul MBUS Pro sights. The MSRP for this one is $1,899.

    The MOE SLG rifle is a fairly standard FN 15 carbine equipped with Magpul MOE SL gray furniture. The MSRP is $1,169.

    FN’s final addition is the Patrol Carbine. This gun uses a 16″ barrel with A2-style birdcage and front sight assembly. The stock is a M4-type. The gun comes equipped with a quad-rail hand guard and a Samson rear sight. The MSRP is $1,219.

    “We are pleased to continue to introduce new products for 2015,” said Mark Cherpes, FN America President and CEO. “These additions round out our already-robust commercial product lines and showcase our ability to quickly bring to market new variants that are in such demand by our customers.”

    A total of five new variants of the FN 15™ line of modern sporting rifles are also available, including the industry’s first AR’s to feature the revolutionary Magpul M-LOK™ accessory mounting system.

    “Magpul is pleased with the relationship that has been built with FN America, LLC over the past year,” added Drake Clark, Sr. Director for Sales and Business Development for Magpul Industries. “There’s a great value to the customer when two brands such as ours partner on products like the FN 15™ Tactical Carbine, FN 15 DMR™ and FN 15™ MOE SLG. The addition of a M-LOK™ compatible fore-end on these models shows FN America has their finger on the pulse of the consumer.”

    The FN 15™ Tactical Carbine offers the same features as the standard model but has a free floating, chrome-lined, cold hammer-forged barrel for increased life and easier cleaning. It also comes with enhancements such as a 3-prong muzzle brake to reduce flash, a mid-length gas system and H1 buffer to decrease recoil, a Magpul grip, buttstock and M-LOK™ accessory mounting system, and an ALG Defense combat trigger for smoother pull, a cleaner break and less grit.

    The FN 15™ DMR includes many of the same features as the FN 15™ Sporting but was designed for more tactical applications. The FN 15™ DMR features an 18” match-grade, cold hammer-forged barrel with a 1:7 twist to enhance stability and accuracy for heavier grain precision shooting ammunition. It also comes with pre-installed Magpul MBUS Pro backup iron sights, a Magpul M-LOK™ accessory mounting system, and a 1913 rail for mounting optics, night vision or thermal devices. MSRP is $1,899.

    The FN 15™ Sporting was designed for competition – chambered in .223 Remington, it features an 18” match-grade, cold hammer-forged, chrome-lined barrel, a SureFire ProComp 556 muzzle brake to reduce recoil, a Timney competition trigger for a crisp break with a short reset, a Magpul grip and buttstock, and a 15” Samson Evolution accessory rail. MSRP is $1,749.
