    Should there be a FN discussion category?

    Many know that Browning is synonymous with FN, but there are quite a few that don't. And FN has it's own handgun line that is distinct from Browning.

    FN

    Cool man. FN is the largest supplier of M-16's to the military, after all. And some of their handguns are very nice, such as the 57, for instance....

    Yes, that is news to me - I have never heard of FN making an M16.

    I knew about MAG58/mini but now idea about the M16! what has colt been doing to lose market to FN?! If the NFA was repealed back in US vs miller like it should have been, then we'd have the best machine gun makers in the world PERIOD!

    Yes! I watched a program on the Military Channel about the quality of FN M16 rifles going to our troops. One of the guys who is quality control has a son in Iraq so he takes a personal pride in the quality going out the door. As a matter of fact he has his name associated to a certain serial no. lot of rifles and his son has one of the guns he inspected. It was a great segment about FN.
