I had a chance to shoot FNAR rifles at an industry shoot in Reno, NV last year and found it fun and accurate (as a former competitive rifle shooter mainly biathlon but NRA high power 4-pos also and now just some fun local shoots from time to time). For more details, I have also posted a thoughtful customer review (not my own words but one I found informative) on one of our FNAR pages....

Customer Reviews of FNAR include...

"I have one (standard barrel) and I really like it. I had the following criteria when I was looking for a new rifle:

1. .308
2. Box-fed semi-auto
3. Not an AR (no fudd here, just don't like AR's)
4. Sub MOA Accuracy
5. User defined dimensions (LOP, comb, etc)
6. Under $1500
7. Poly furniture
8. integral rail for scope

Notice that looks weren't on the list. I found one used, but unfired... and I paired it with a new Leupold VXIII 40mm that I also got for a screaming deal and a Harris bipod. Once zeroed I got great accuracy (for me anyway), and it has very mild recoil. Last range trip I put one of the dots from a shoot-n-see on a piece of cardboard, I think it is 1" diameter. At 100 yards I put 4 rounds right in the dot."

"...at the price it's hard to beat i think, a piston driven .308 semi auto that is very accurate and doesn't need anything out of the box, save for another mag."

Currently in stock (8/17/12) but stock changes daily...

I have one and really like it.

It's light and I have the 18" heavy barrel. Accurate and very easy to shoot. Minimal recoil for a .308. Got mine with two 20 round magazines...I live out of state. Slap a bipod and scope on her and she's good to go!!

Is there any accuarcy difference wit the 16'' and 20" version? Heavy vs. Standard barrel? I have read on other reviews and forums that ALL FNARs are guaranteed 1 moa at 100 yards.
