But no one bats a thousand and every company produces a mediocre or bad product. The FNAR. Otherwise, the action is the same. It is chambered only in. Overall it is a sound design. The fit and finish is excellent. Just what you expect from a FN. The Competition model is colored blue the company color and looks sharp. Has a nice adjustable cheek piece to fit the shooter.
A large Picatinny rail for mounting any optic. It also includes a small Picatinny rail on the end of the barrel if you are so inclined to add iron sights. The short, medium weight, 20 inch barrel is handy. The action is smooth and functions well. This is where the good ends. Let me move on to why this is not a good rifle, especially for a competition rifle.
The Bad: The medium weight barrel unbalances the rifle. All the weight is up front and makes the rifle clumsy to move quickly and efficiently. The Competition stock has no provisions for a sling or for a bi-pod. This tells me this rifle was designed for one and only one type of competition. One that does not require the use of a sling or bi-pod. Without aftermarket gunsmithing, this rifle is not useful for multiple uses or competition types. The front Picatinny rail is pointless.
It is intended to put iron sights on. But with iron sights you want a longer sight radius to minimize aiming errors. The 20 inch barrel is a bit short for iron sights, especially if you want to win at competition. Just remove the front Picatinny rail. Also, the iron sights sit very high above the bore, which will not allow for a good cheek weld.
This is not good for your accuracy. The magazine release is too far forward. Though ambidextrous, it is located too far forward for easy access, which will slow down your magazine changes. This fact alone will lose you the competition. Proprietary magazines that are stupid expensive. Since you added an extended magazine well, How about using standard off the shelf magazines? Way to think of your customers needs FN. The bolt release is also in a bad location that will slow you down.
It is definitely not what I would call a competition trigger. Though light at approximately 3 — 3. It is full of slack, creep, grit and crunch. It is everything but a competition trigger. Fine for a hunting rifle. Complex gas system that is major pain to take apart to clean. Definitely follow the instruction manual. Lots of small screws, pins and springs that need to be taken out.
Good news, you do not need to pull it apart very frequently. Bad news is the instruction manual that came with the rifle is incomplete. It only explains how to disassemble the gas system. But does not tell you how remove the bolt from the receiver. Thank Google for the power of YouTube.
And a big thanks to FN for doing a half-ass job on the instruction manual. Incomplete, small with tiny black and white pictures that are hard to see. Only chambered in. Why not 6. Same horsepower but much less recoil.
Less recoil means faster return to target. How about. Even less recoil and lower ammunition costs. The only advantage of. Assuming you can hit your target. Even with the medium weight barrel, the rifle acts very much like a light weight hunting rifle.
The accuracy expands and contracts with the temperature of the barrel. See Photo. First group, cold bore. This is what you expect from a competition rifle. The separation is most likely operator error.
As the barrel heats up, the group open ups. Still not bad. Pushing 3 inches and no clue where shot 5 went. This is AK territory. Or Tavor is you prefer. It also limits your maximum effective range depending on target size.
A 3 inch group at yards gives you have a theoretical 15 inch group at yards. After a short barrel cool down, the group closes up a bit. Getting back to normal. Again, separation is probably is operator error. Not good for a competition rifle. The FNAR is not a competition rifle in any way shape or form.
It is outclassed by the AR Hell, it is outclassed by an AK and even a Tavor. I know YouTube is full of videos of people singing the praises of this rifle. I disagree with most people on this rifle.
It is outclassed by almost all other rifles. It is something I would expect out of Taurus, not FN. Fabrique Nationale needs to discontinue this rifle and remove it from the catalog. Shut down the assembly line and put the money into fixing their other craptactular products.
It is a nice, sleek design with a flush fit magazine and available in multiple calibers. It is hunting oriented, but that is what this design was meant to be and nothing else. By: Mez.

Nikolabar A 3 inch group at yards gives you have fnr theoretical 15 inch group at yards. They are a bit more honest than the longtime mainstream guys, but not by much. It is finished in a Cerakote type Mossy Oak camo pattern. There are no iron sights installed by default; each FNAR rifle is fitted with a Picatinny rail on the top of the receiver, and three more short rails are installed at the front of the rifle stock. The bolt release is also in a bad location that will slow you down.
