FN 15 Tactical II Rifle

Just about every company makes an AR-15 these days, but we have higher expectations of an AR from FN, whose tagline is “the world’s most battle-proven firearms.” FN has a sterling track record with our military and armed forces all over the world. But is this the firearm you need for home defense and rifle training, or as a patrol rifle if you’re in law enforcement? Rob Pincus believes the FN 15 is a strong contender for these roles.


The FN 15 is a well-built firearm. It features a three-pronged flash hider and a high-quality barrel. FN makes barrels for many different AR makers and for firearms all over the world.

ARs are fairly standardized, so one area Rob always looks at closely is the handguard. The FN 15 handguard, which utilizes M-LOK technology, is well contoured, thin, and has a full-length rail on top. Like any handguard, you can accessorize it however you want, but what you start with is small, nice-feeling, and ergonomic.

Moving to the back, the FN 15 includes Magpul MOE gear with the grip and adjustable buttstock, which has rubber buttpads and a well-contoured comb.


Rob checks the trigger of the FN 15 by doing some live fire, with an Aimpoint Micro red dot installed on the rifle. And no surprise, the FN 15 handles well and is accurate, and this is Rob’s first time firing it.

Most ARs are very similar, so what you’re looking for is the intersection of cost, value, and reliability that’s right for you. Not all ARs are created equal as far as reliability goes, and this is where the FN 15 has a big advantage over other self-defense gear. With the FN name behind it, we can be confident the FN 15 is going to be reliable.
