    Does the FNAR match exist?

    I was wondering if the FNAR match exists and if anyone has seen one? I would like to have the McMillian stock made for it. The article is here on it: FN FNAR ?Match? - Rifles - Rifles - News - all4shooters.com

    Also, the FNAR cleaning video on Utube shows a BAR Match. It is marked match on both the reciever and the barrel.

    What is a BAR match?

    Not in FNH USA's catalog or on their web site

    Hi Jeff,

    I think you will have to build this yourself. FNH USA offers a Competition FNAR on their web site and in their catalog mentioned in other threads, but it appears to be a heavy FNAR with a blue laminate stock and a front site rail.

    The match BAR I believe you referenced is what the American made FNAR is called when it is made in FNH's Belgium plant.

    I called McMillian today to see if a McMillian stock could be made for the FNAR. I got lucky and talked to the general manager who had detailed knowledge of the FNAR/McMillian Match prototypes (note: not the BAR Match, that is apparently the non-USA FNAR model).

    He told me that McMillian had made 10 prototype stocks for 10 FNARs with modified actions to mate with the stocks. The normal FNAR rear stock attachment was modified to fit the McMillian stock as well as the bolt release being modified. The project was done to create both a CA legal gun and attempt to get additional accuracy. I was told the 10 guns were tested and shot between 0.75 and 1 MOA. FN did not consider this a worthwhile increase in accuracy and the project was scrapped. The McMillian GM did not seem to consider the McMillian stock for the FNAR a success either.

    In summary, there wont be any FNAR Match rifles and McMillian wont be making any more of these stocks.

    Has anyone ever seen a FNAR competition in person or for sale? I have done all kinds of searching for them, and can not find them actually listed for sale anywhere. I like the shape of the stock (not real thrilled with the color), and I would consider picking one up if they were around. The best option would be if I could get just the stock, and mount it to my standard FNAR. I have no plans for open sights, so that front sight rail is not really needed in my opinion. The long magazine looks out of place, but I think with the 5/10 round magazine it would look pretty good.

    The Match and Competition are two completely different models.
