The popularity of 3-Gun competitions has only continued to grow in recent years, and plenty of manufacturers have begun to research, develop and release products specifically tailored for this type of competitive shooting. FN is one such company, and for 2016 the manufacturer is now offering a competition-inspired version of its classic FN 15 rifle.
The new FN 15 Competition is stacked with features that 3-Gun shooters have come to expect in their rifles. The gun has a hard-anodized blue receiver with both the upper and lower manufactured from 7075T651 billet aluminum, and an 18-inch chrome-lined, cold hammer forged barrel is free-floated inside a lightweight, 15-inch handguard with M-LOK attachment points, capitalizing on many competitive shooters' preference for an extended grip placement.
For improved ergonomics, the rifle sports Magpul's MOE-SL buttstock and MOE Grip and comes equipped with an ambidextrous bolt release. Performance-wise, the FN 15 Competition utilizes a Nickel-Boron coated bolt carrier assembly, a Surefire ProComp 556 Muzzle Brake, a low-profile steel gas block and a quality Timney trigger.
Pricing on the new FN 15 Competition rifle is currently listed at $2,249.
