Is The Fn FS2000 still being manufacted?

I am interested in buying an FS2000 but I cant find them anywhere. I was wondering if they are still manufactured?

There aren't many on Gunbroker either but FNH's website still has them listed. My guess is that gun stores aren't selling many of them so dealers aren't stocking them. Unless there are serious government contracts, I wouldn't bet on the rifles being around much longer. But that's just my uneducated opinion.

They are over priced though, and more complicated for field stripping & cleaning.

I just think they are really unique and good rifles. I have disassembled one and compared to my SCAR, PS90, Ak and AR it is a bit more complicated.

Had it been marked correctly is would have take off. FNH is getting more and more like Colt became in the 60's.
All about government contracts and to heck with civilian.

Thanks for all the help guys, appreciate it. I just think its a unique platform and would love to have one just for a collection but it seems they have dried up.

Definitely hasn't dried up, at all.

i haven't seen a FS2000 for sale at any gun shop or gun show in several years but they have never been in the market in large quantities. you really don't see many SCAR16, 17 or PS90's out there a lot either although in the last year the PS90 seems to be popping up pretty frequently. i'd check gunbroker or gunsamerica if you really want one or just google FS2000 for sale and see what you come up with.

I see a few used ones go up locally on armslist. It seems like most people who like them have them and are not willing to let them go. I am in the same boat as I really want one and the longer I wait the more difficult it may be to get one.
