    FN to make only 1600 M249's for 2016.And less in 2017?

    Okay is this another net rumor post election. I have seen serials up to #1400. LE F.N. rep still has five on back order, And says might get them in 2017,But not holding out for that. Around five for sale on Gunbroker which now seems like only outlet for them,They put out a piece of FN History and before you know it no more. With Christmas coming. Won't some want them under the tree?Ron K.

    A FN Le rep told me that 200 spec ed. and 1400 regular brown box for 2016, Seems could be right seen number 1350 already. Will see if any appear at SAR show next weekend, A few said will have post sample on display. One dealer said will have Pre-86 for sale for 40 grand. And another from Phx is bringing Spec Ed to sell. Should be good time to find extra barrels and parts or small items. Links and boxes,Ron K.

    Ron, my LGS has had 8-10 come through in the past 2-3 months. If you're interested, they still have 3 in shop. All 3 BNIB. I think the price is $7499.99 but don't quote me on that. This shop is just outside Chicago.

    SAR show report. Well two m249's on display both sold over the process of the four day show for $8,000.00,Now for the great stuff. Para barrels, and stocks and some spare parts had been on a least 25 tables, including linked ammo and nut sacks and 200 round green and black box.Even a few adaptor that has the nutsack ride in the mag well area.A few military manuals around most scuffed up and oil stained. Did not see any new in wrap.a few Elcan correct scopes in pouch. and the best of show of all. FN MINIMI M249 UPDATED AND TRANSFERABLE FOR 100 GRAND. brand new. and Two Mark 46 model.With those great looking fluted barrel's. and of course belt feed only set up. both new and Pre-86 sample. for 140 grand. I did not know a Mark 46 did Exist in pre sample. The guy said only two on books and he had them. From out of the Colt collection. A few complained price for 8 grand on the semi. I asked you own one They said no! and I noticed 600 buck AR-15 at sling arms. I said you never will. Lets all enjoy what we have while we can. have it.16 YEARS AT THIS SHOW They had the most historic guns ever on display. IF you had a few spare Million you could buy. The Gene Autry M-16 was cool.And a real great time was had by all.Ron K.
