Default Thoughts on the FN FS2000?

I've been looking at one of these for awhile and had a chance to handle one at my local gun show recently.

Seems fairly decent in the weight department but damn did it seem bulky and kind of uncomfortable.

I'm curious if anyone owns or has fired one of these. What do you think of it?

Is it STANAG compatible?

It takes M-16 magazines.

If you are comfortable witrh the "feel" of the bullpup design, you'll love it.

it's an FN i.e. as good as it gets.

If you find the bullpup unweildy and awkward.... you'll hate it.

Quality, reliability, accuracy, dependability, ruggedness are exceptional. It's an FN

The question is, is it comfortable to you??.

I'm not a huge fan of bullpup's but I do like the fs2000 and ps90, that is just from an aesthetics point, I have never fired either.

The fs2000 has some great things going for it it actually has a 16.5" barrel I believe. It's also a gas piston weapon which makes it superior. You cannot change length on the weapon though. That is to say length of pull is not adjustable. This is important because it limits you to a weaver style stance when firing. That is un less you have very long arms. Also I hope that your right handed because despite the fact that the gun is forward ejecting its not very ambi friendly. The charging system is the same as the hk91 or mp5 and the bolt hold open operates the same as well. For a right hander this is a great gun. Despite the awkward feel the gun is actually designed to correct many problems with shooting positions and trigger pull technique. Hope this helps.

I put 300 rounds through a buddies FN last summer.

Reliability and accuracy were excellent though I did not particularly like the sight.

It is a good rifle but bull pups are not for me. All the weight is at your shoulder instead of between your hands which completely throws off the "handling characteristics".

It feels think, unwieldy, and the control are decidely not AR15 like in any way.

With 20 years behind the AR PLATFORM I'll stick with it.

Tack

I have actually thought about the Tavor but I'm afraid the price will be more than I'm willing to pay. Also not sure how likely the Tavor is to come to our shores with the current political environment.

Then again, the ability to buy a Tavor is about the same as finding a FS2000 or even an AR at this point.
