posted on July 5, 2018
FN America, a subsidiary of FN Herstal, is a consolidation of two existing entities—FN Manufacturing and FNH USA—with both being established for two different reasons. FN Manufacturing was used to service defense and military customers while FNH USA was the business development arm of the company. The two were combined in 2014 and focus on three business segments—the federal/military market, commercial market and law enforcement. After more than 125 years of gun-making, the company has won numerous contracts from the U.S. Army. FN America makes a broad portfolio of products for the U.S. military and commercial market to include the M240 family of machine guns, M249 SAW, as well as the M4 and M16 rifles. The company also prides itself on transitioning its guns from military and adapting them to the commercial market such as the P90 in 5.57x28 mm. But overall, the most iconic product from FN is the SCAR which was commissioned as a multi-caliber firearm. 













Check out this segment, from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV, to learn more about the history of FN and how its products are made.
