Looks like a FNH PS90 with some aftermarket goodies.

It has FN lines and appears to be 5.56mm. It has an HK type rear sight drum. I don't know. I can't get the pic to save in another format to blow it up and look at the writing on the right side of the receiver. Asian origin?

Hmmm. First thought was some variation of the FN FS2000 5.56 carbine

FS2000 Tactical Semi-auto Carbine - Military Photos

But I don't think so. Too many differences.
It definitely looks FN. The grip is P90, but the P90 is 5.7 with the mag
on top.

It's the FN F2000 Tactical chambered in civilian .223

Looks like they added some sort of holo-sight on the rail system ( optional ).

EDIT: Crap. That stock is throwing me and now I am not so certain. It looks like a mock up between the F2000 and the Tavor T-21.

Were did the pictures come from?

Definately not the P-90/PS-90 or the F-2000/FS-2000. Way too many differences. If I could get the pic to blow up I might be able to read the marking on the right side of the receiver. Light appears to be Surefire labeled so probably not airsoft.

Ya' got me.

I don't know bro - that grip alone is FN all over it. It resembles the Tactical edition of the F2000 in many aspects except the stock and upraised rail.

I know for a fact that FN was toying with several applications of the P-90 and the F2000 as of Shot in 2007, because they had mock ups at the both.

However, I haven't seen this combination before - and yet I am still searching for some unknown reason.

I blew the picture up with no results. I used just about every trick with photoshop to bring out the lettering more, but the original just doesn't have enough pixels.

I think its either a new model, or a hoax.

I wish the original poster could give us another picture.

The grip is FN P90. Beyond that I'm starting to wonder if it's legit.

The more I look at the pix, the more I think it's a composite, maybe
airsoft, or a photoshop job.

There is some goofy stuff at the front of the grip frame/forearm. Screw
missing at the rear of the grip frame. What looks like rust on the rail
mount screws, and it's kind of rough/blurred on the upper above and just
behind the trigger. Not things I would expect in a FN Shotshow
prototype.

This was the OP's first post---maybe he will come up with some
further info???

I thought FN as well but I don't think that's what it is either. Is that an AR charging handle?
