Does anyone know who sells FN parts for the AR15 and if they are any good? I know the mouse guns isnt a FAL but I have 3 FALS and now find myself wanting an AR...

Thanks, John

FN does not sell AR15 parts. They have the current M16 contract. People who advertise FN parts ususally:

1) Are selling FN contracter rejects, or
2) Have no idea who the manufacturer is.

There are several quality manufacturers out there such as Bushmaster, Armalite, DPMS, or Rock River Arms.

Uhhh? Olympic? :)
Ditto on the above, I like Olympic lowers along with some of the others.

Offtopic? Questions about FN parts are never offtopic. :)

I asked an old friend of mine's son, who is an MP, about new in the wrapper FN parts I've seen around. He said that if you see a new M-16/AR-15 part in the US that is marked as FN, then it is stolen from the government. Just something to consider.z
