When I think of futuristic, all around cool looking firearms that are available today, the FN FS2000 is at the top of my list.
The FN FS2000 is a semi-auto bullpup style rifle chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO (223 Rem.), and comes with a 1.6x optical sighting package. It’s gas operated and uses a rotating block lockup. The polymer stock is ambidextrous and fired casings are ejected through a forward port on the right side of the rifle away from the operator. Both 10 and 30 round magazines are available. The cost is approximately $2000.
The “11″ Factor:
What gives the little extra push from ten to eleven, for me, is the way this rifle combines modular options, light weight, and beautiful lines… Oh, and the fact that our left-handed brothers and sisters won’t be getting a face full of hot gas and brass.
Would any of you consider buying a rifle that looks like something out of a sci-fi movie? Has anyone had a chance to fire one of these? If so, what were your thoughts?
