FN America serves up more rifles for gun owners in Maryland, launching two new state compliant, heavy barreled FN 15 models.

The FN 15 MD Heavy Barrel Carbine and FN 15 MD Heavy Barrel Rifle ship with a heavy barrel profile and limited 10-round magazine that meet Maryland’s rifle requirements. Both chambered in 5.56 NATO, the rifles boast a free-floated, hammer-forged and chrome lined barrel with the Carbine offering a 16-inch barrel length and the Rifle featuring a 20-inch length.

The Carbine is equipped with a 12-inch Midwest Industry M-LOK compatible rail, low-profile gas block and PWS muzzle brake. With an overall length of 35.6-inches with the stock fully extended, the Carbine tips scales at 7-pounds.

The Rifle, on the other hand, is outfitted with a 15-inch Samson Evolution rail, fixed stock and threaded muzzle with thread protector. It supplies an overall length of 38-inches with a weight at 8.7-pounds.

The new compliant FN 15s are currently available through authorized dealers. MSRP is set at $1,399 on both models.
