    Nothing, really. Beretta was still delivering new M9 pistols after the M17 and M18 were adopted.

    Let me know when FN starts to make a serious semi auto rifle for the civie market. Until then this is all just "post samples" and even those aren't easy to lay hands on even if you are a SOT.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Chuck, we miss ya man.

    Do the "Military Collector Series" count?
    You really have to ask why Conservatives have guns? Because Liberals block freeways, burn cities, throw Molotov cocktails, loot, turn over cop cars, and think this behavior is Socially Acceptable.

    I'm curious as to what you base this statement on.

    The fact that most people here consider it a hobby rifle due to it being manufactured from outsourced parts of questionable quality. I really, really wanted one until I read a few threads here in the tech forums.

    If I remember right, both the FN15 and military collector series were hyped up, but neither were built to spec. The military collector series also being way overpriced for what you get. This has already been hashed and re hashed out on the forums.

    Edit: spelling ��

    “The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."

    I'd imagine PSA and other companies with contracts will still be able to get FN barrels.

    If the cost is $500 each which is low that's less than 250k rifles over the next 25 years.

    I'm curious what this means to the 6.5 rifles the military is anticipated to adopt soon.
    These 5.56 rifles might be for non combat roles.
