In a move that adds a new series of modern sporting rifles to their consumer and LE offerings, FN USA has announced the new TAC3 line.

The FN 15 series rifles include three standard TAC3 models – in black, flat dark earth, or tungsten gray – and a more basic black TAC3 Duty variant. All are chambered in 5.56 NATO and include FN's famed hammer-forged, chrome-lined 16-inch government-profile barrel with a 1:7 twist.

Mil-spec – keep in mind that FN makes thousands of M4s every year for Uncle Sam – they have a mid-length gas system and M16-style bolt carrier groups with an HPT/MPI-tested bolt made from Carpenter 158 steel. Other standard features are a six-position stock with QD attachment points, a fully ambi Radian Raptor-LT charging handle, and an ergonomic FN pistol grip set at a 19.5-degree angle.
