fn-fn15-dmrii-main-fThe FN name has been closely associated with ARs for some time now. The world-renown manufacturer produces a host of AR-type rifles for the commercial market in the U.S., and it makes plenty of black rifles for military forces as well. This past year, FN celebrated that heritage of military production with the company’s Military Collector Series, which featured semi-auto replicas of the military M4, M16 and M249 SAW.

This year, FN has improved on its solid foothold with the AR platform by updating its FN 15 carbine line with three new and upgraded models. The three new FN 15 II rifles – which include the FN 15 Tactical Carbine II, the FN 15 Tactical 300 BLK Carbine II and the FN 15 DMR II – have been updated with a newer, more modern, proprietary FN handguard. The new handguard features M-LOK attachments points for mounting aftermarket accessories such as lights, lasers, fore-grips and hand stops. The new carbines also utilize an enhanced Mil-Spec lower receiver, and they no longer have Magpul MBUS sights as standard.

Apart from the new proprietary FN handguard with M-LOK technology, these new FN 15 II carbines are very much like their predecessors. They all feature hard anodized receivers and a free-floated, chrome-lined cold hammer-forged barrel.

Pricing on the three new FN 15 II models varies from $1,599 to $1,999, depending on the model. For more information on these three new rifles check out the specifications below or visit the FN America website.
