Short Barrel FN 15 Carbines

(McLean, VA) FN America, LLC announces today the release of two FN 15™ Patrol carbines in short barreled configurations, available to commercial customers. These two new carbines are the first time FN has offered short barreled rifles for sale to the individual consumer.

"FN has been producing SBR's for military and law enforcement customers, and as individual upper receivers or barrel kits, but never as factory-produced consumer products," said John Keppeler, vice president of sales and marketing for FN America, LLC. "These new carbines are currently shipping to FN distributors nationwide and are just the first of many SBR configurations we will be releasing."

The two FN 15 Patrol SBR carbines will be chambered in 5.56x45mm and offered in either a 10.5- or 14.5-inch, button-broached and chrome-lined barrel with A2-style compensator, hard-anodized aluminum upper receiver, 6-position collapsible stock and combat-grade trigger. In addition, the two carbines are equipped with low-profile gas systems optimized for each barrel length offered. Full specifications are available in Figures 1 and 2.
