FN FNC Full Auto: The Pride of Belgium

by Alex C.

The FN FNC lies at a junction somewhere between the AR and AK, and the shooting experience it provides is a strange juxtaposition of both platforms. The ergonomics are very AR-like, but you get a bit of that lovely mechanical recoil impulse of the AK as a result of the long-stroke piston.

The FNC was developed by FN and has been the mainstay of the Belgian military since 1979, and since then other countries such as Indonesia and Sweden (as the AK5) produce licensed copies.

But how does the rifle perform? Well, to determine that Miles and Alex hit the range with this magnificent rifle.

Thanks to our sponsors Grizzly Targets and Ventura Munitions.

    I'm glad to mention that I have fired this very same FNC, and I found it WORTHY! Great rifle.

    Anybody know what the clicking sound after ever round fired is after he fires it before firing the next round in semi off the bench starting at about 4:37 ?
