FN FS2000
Often considered one of the weirdest or ugliest looking modern tactical rifles on the market, the FS2000 is a semi-auto bullpup chambered in 5.56x45mm. An option for early models was a factory scope with a special housing that more or less matched the rifle’s bizarre aesthetics. You can see that the owner modified the polymer magazine in the photo in order to use it in the FS2000, which only accepts USGI mags. (GRH)

FN FS2000
Although the F2000 (select-fire model) is fielded by several countries, the civilian rifle for the U.S market, the FS2000 may be at its end of the line. FN is supposedly shifting focus on the SCAR series of rifles. I emailed FN-USA and asked if the FS2000 was being discontinued. I just cut and pasted their reply. This might explain why they’ve jumped up in price on the used market. (GRH)

Hello!
Thank you for contacting FNH USA.
  
As of now FNH USA is no longer carrying the FS2000 in our inventory. However, there is always as possibility we may in the future.
We will continue to have access to parts to support the product. 
Kind regards,
FNH USA Customer Service


Damn, didn’t know that. I’m glad my friend got one when he did.

The way I understand it, if FN in Belgium gets enough military F2000 orders, FNH USA would import more semi-auto variants. The problem wasn’t selling the bullpups in the USA as much as needing to prioritize the Herstal factory.

I hate these photoshoots where the models (pro or not) point the gun’s at themselves. Even if it is a squirt-gun, it just looks stupid.
