This week’s hottest product is the FN AR-15 barrels. FN has been making high-quality gun barrels for over a hundred years. In fact, the company makes over 20,000 barrels a month. FN puts its own barrels in the SCAR, FN 15, M249 SAW, FNX pistol and many more. For the first time, FN is making its impressive barrels commercially available so you can upgrade your AR-15.
Beyond the barrels, there are four other new products to learn more about:
- Troy Industries developed a 45-degree offset folding sight set for H&K and AR-15 rifles that will not get in the way of your optic.
- Just in time for Christmas is Thompson/Center’s Venture Compact bolt-action rifle chambered in .223 Remington for young hunters.
- SureFire releases a new weapon-mounted light model that incorporates an infrared LED that does not need a filter.
- Nosler’s new BT ammo loaded with Ballistic Tip Hunting bullets are made for hog, antelope and deer hunting.
FN AR-15 Barrel
For the first time, FN America is making its high-quality rifle barrels available for sale. Ranging in lengths from 14.5 to 20 inches in carbine to rifle lengths, each FN AR-15 barrel is made in the United States and is hammer-forged and chrome lined. FN already produces over 20,000 barrels a month for various rifles and handguns.
Troy 45 Degree Offset Folding BattleSights
Available for either H&K or M4/AR-15 rifles, Troy Industries’ BattleSights now come as 45-degree, offset folding sights that fold down against the side of the rifle. The stainless-steel cross-locking system keeps the Troy 45 degree offset folding sight set zeroed. Because they fold, they work in conjunction with your red dot, riflescope or other magnified or holographic sight. These sights work on same plane rail systems only.
