FN announces release of 2 factory short-barreled FN 15 carbines

http://www.guns.com/2017/03/19/fn-releases-factory-short-barreled-fn-15-carbines/



n an unprecedented move by the company, FN announced the launch of two commercially available FN 15 Patrol carbines in short barreled configurations.

According to FN, this is the first time the company has offered short barreled rifles for sale to individuals.

Both FN 15 Patrol SBRs will be chambered in 5.56x45mm with either a 10.5 or 14.5-inch barrel. Barrels are button-broached and chrome lined with A2 style compensator. The uppers are anodized aluminum and the rifles feature a 6 position collapsible stocks with combat grade trigger. Both are equipped with low-profile gas systems designed for each barrel length.

Sporting GI pattern 30-round magazines, the rifles weigh around the 6-pound mark unloaded.

(Excerpt, remainder of article at link)

SBRs really need to be taken off the NFA. Why should this rifle need a $200 tax stamp and a year of paperwork just because it has a barrel 6 inches shorter?

4. "Why should this rifle need a $200 tax stamp"

Same reason you can't put a stock on a pistol, or own a shotgun less that 24"OAL... because the ATF said so. All that matters are their arbitrary rules.

5. At the very least, the NFA should be revised to only apply to full autos.
