Descending from the legendary Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR), the FNAR puts autoloading speed and bolt-action accuracy into one powerful package. The FNAR is the ideal competition and practical rifle when both speed and power are your top priorities.

As you can see, when FNH designed this rifle, they were serious about producing an accurate and dependable autoloader with some real kick. Everything I have examined so far leads me to believe that they accomplished what they were trying to do. Even though I have not been able to confirm first hand the accuracy portion of their claims, Jeff Quinn of GunBlast.com did a great FNAR Review of the rifle and he was able to show a 7/16" three shot group at 100 yards using Buffalo Bore Sniper 175gr Sierra Match King bullets. Clearly, that's sub MOA. I'm anxious to see if my rifle and my capability can produce these same results.
- One MOA or better accuracy (depending on bullet selection and shooter capability)
- An autoloader with character
- A true Multi-use rifle (I consider it a Tactical Hunting Rifle. This is one rifle that I can truly see being able to compete in both the tactical and hunting rifle worlds.)
- Control and comfort of a pistol grip
- Rail ready for those night time hunts
- Based on the proven FN / Browning BAR hunting rifle
- Magazine costs - In time, I can see these coming down, especially if someone can make an aftermarket magazine. Current pricing is about $65 to $80 per magazine and there doesn't seem to be a big price difference between the 5, 10 and 20 round magazines.
- Small Gun Case - Honestly this has nothing to do with the gun and at least the gun case is not a custom molded one that is not usable with another rifle. At least it can be used for another rifle, so maybe this is actually a pro.
