New FN15 Rifles for 2015

New FN15 for 2015

For 2015, FNH USA will introduce a number of new FN 15 rifles at the SHOT Show.

There will be five new models introduced:

  • Tactical Carbine,
  • Sporting Rifle,
  • Patrol Carbine,
  • MOE SLG and
  • Designated Marksman Rifle.

As you can see, the new guns will target different segments of the modern sporting rifle market. Some are geared toward law enforcement, while others toward competition. All of them would be good for the average citizen looking for a high-quality AR-15 rifle.

Let’s take a look at the new rifles…


All New ArmaLite M-15 Line

ArmaLite is introducing an all new M-15 line of rifles and pistols for 2015 according to the representatives I met at the recent NASGW Show. The new guns cover everything from tactical to competition with plenty of fun stuff in between.

While the guns are in the AR-style, these are a significant departure from the company’s traditional line up. Frankly, it looks like a major pivot on the part of ArmaLite. Let’s go over seven of the new guns right now…


Upgrades to the IZ132 Saiga Rifles

I just received an announcement from Concern Kalashnikov about a number of upgrades to the IZ132 rifle being sold in the United States.

The standard IZ132 rifle is based on the AK-47 pattern rifle and is chambered for the 7.62×39 cartridge.  It is a semi-automatic rifle fed by detachable magazines.  The new upgrade will use an improved polymer stock that has an integrated pistol grip.  The polymer handguard is also updated.  Standard AK-pattern 30-round magazines will work in the gun.
