WTS NIB FNAR Heavy $1025 Shipped

Post by sabotteur » 15 Nov 2011, 11:12

Not sure if FN is blowing these out and discontinuing them or what, but I've got multiple dealers that have dropped prices on these for a short time. So, I'm passing this on to anyone who is interested.

FNH USA - MFG#: 3108929100

If you are intersted, drop me an e-mail or a PM. I won't be taking physical possession of these unless someone pings me for one, so be aware there will be about a 4 day delay before I can ship it to you if you want it, as I'll have to get it sent to me first. Right now, there are no limits, and I'll cash, check, or Visa/MC on these.

Just let me know.

.... nice price! I wonder why there isn't much interest in a match-grade .308 SEMI from FN that can double as a hunting rifle.

Because FN, unlike all other companies, doesn't really advertise that much. They heavily deal with MIL/LEO sales.

They have lately begun advertising, as of the past few years, if even that long. With their 3Gun route going strong, they are getting more exposure.

And CONGRATS FOOS. I know you've been wanting to replace yours you sold for a while now.

Man, you have NO idea.

Me and a buddy were talking the other day and it seems that at least within our circle of friends this seems to be everyone's year to move up. Friend got a promotion, another switched jobs after getting crapped on at his current one, one guy got laid off three times this year and finally landed a solid job with twitter, and lastly I got a solid job and will be moved into a better place in a couple weeks.

If I can get one, this is going to be the PERFECT rifle to keep up at our cabin. Been looking for something I can keep up there for deer so i don't have to constnatly bring long-guns in the car or on the plane when I travel.... AND, its a fine rifle for SHTF if I ever have to but out up there. Just didn't want to pay darn near 1500 for one... 1000 seems more reasonable.

Personally, next to the SCAR, 17 it is by far my 2nd favorite large cal gun that I own. I would rather shoot this anyday over a M14, Rem 700, or AR-308. Hell, it even up stages my FN FAL and other FALs I own.

You guys won't be disapointed.

Yeah, I really hope FN isn't dropping them and this is only to clear out old stock. It'd be a shame for some an obscenely great rifle to fall by the wayside.

The FNAR has its drawbacks, it is slightly more complicated to take apart and clean, and uses proprietary magazines (as do almost ALL .308s). Its also somewhat odd looking, but if you can stomach a Kriss-V, then you can own an FNAR.

In my opinion, its one of the finest .308 semis on the market. I've read just about every review I can get my hands on, most them seem to agree that the average FNAR is sub MOA out of the box. It comes from the factory in either heavy or light barrel (a nice nice and rare factory option). Even though it has a traditional fixed-stock, it also incorporates a pistol grip and relatively short overall length making it suitable for defensive situations. It also has a reputation for reliability, jams are few and far between. Like I said, if you want a rifle that can smack white-tail at 300 yards, be able to pump 20 rounds into a bad guy with full force 7.62 power, or just play long-ball at the range, seems to me the FNAR can do all 3 equally well. It might not be the "best" at any one of those areas, but it is certainly a jack of all trades.

No longer available. I'm working with another one of my distributers to see if they can match the deal. These things sold out pretty quick. I'll post again if I can get anymore.


Foos and Seahawk, you guys are good, as I have yours already on the way.

Oh cool, so the PEPR mount looks like it will work. Saves me money on having to buy rings :laugh: Only problem is that it means I have to buy new optics for the SCAR...

Add a brake and different glass and that's how I envision mine to look when I'm done with it.

I'm wondering if the FAL magazine holders will work for FNAR mags....?? There are almost no magazine holders specifically for the FNAR, but plenty for the FAL. Anyone know if the dimensions are similar enoug for it to work? All i want is a simple brown leather 2-mag pouch for the 20 rounders (stacked), that way you can just clip a couple extra mags on your belt and its somewhat discrete and classy.

I seem to remember them being close to FAL sized, maybe a bit wider. It'll probably be a tight squeeze, but leather can always be stretched out a bit.
