FN joins the #responsiblerecreation movement

Thursday, June 4th, 2020

(McLean, VA – June 05, 2020) FN America, LLC, the makers of the world’s most battle-proven firearms,® is proud to announce support for the #ResponsibleRecreation campaign established by the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) and other conservation partners.

The campaign encourages individuals and families to enjoy the outdoors while practicing #ResponsibleRecreation. With the lifting of most state’s “stay at home” orders and the approach of summer, CSF and other partners launched the campaign to encourage Americans to responsibly enjoy outdoor activities while adhering to social distancing and other precautionary measures, as well as natural resource stewardship principles.

“We are proud to support the Responsible Recreation campaign and have pledged our commitment to enjoying the outdoors safely amid the COVID-19 pandemic, whether participating in recreational shooting at an outdoor range, hunting, fishing or other outdoor activities,” said Mark Cherpes, President and CEO for FN America, LLC. “We encourage everyone to take this same pledge today and ensure that access to public land and facilities remain open to all who wish to enjoy them.”

#ResponsibleRecreation seeks to engage all outdoor enthusiasts by encouraging safe and responsible recreation. Maintaining opportunities for these activities also supports critical conservation funding during this time of economic uncertainty, while also supporting the businesses that drive the outdoor recreation economy.

FNH has released their own AR-15 pattern rifles, the FN 15 and FN 15 Carbine. Both rifles feature a hard anodized aluminum, flat-top receiver with M-1913 MIL-STD rail at the 12 o’clock position, with A2-style front sight, and removable carrying handle mount with sights. The barrel for both rifles is button-broached and chrome-lined, with an A2-style compensator and 1:7″ twist, and a 2-piece ribbed hand guard. The AR-style magazine features an aluminum body with low fiction follower.

The FN 15 has a fixed stock with sling mount and storage compartment. The barrel length is 20″.

The FN 15 Carbine has a collapsible, 6-position stock. The barrel length is 16″.


FNX-45 Tactical – SHOT 2013

Thursday, January 17th, 2013


The FNX-45 Tactical is an update on the FNP-45 Tactical pistol. It features a polymer checkered frame with interchangeable backstraps, a serrated trigger guard, and picatinny accessory rail. The stainless steel slide features an external extractor with loaded chamber indicator, front and rear cocking serrations, and two mounting bases for the use of an electronic red dot sight. The barrel comes threaded for the use of suppressors or compensators, and all the controls are fully ambidextrous (decocking/safety lever, slide stop, and mag release). If you’re wondering what’s ultimately different between the FNP-45 and FNX-45 aside from a few improvements and aesthetic changes, the later uses a new magazine which is incompatible with the former model. To offset this a bit, a new FNX-45 comes with three 15 round mags.
