Video Introduction to the FN FS2000 Bullpup Rifle

I have had my eye on FN's FS2000 bullpup rifle for quite some time, and thanks to some recent sales of duplicate firearms in the old gun safe, I was able to acquire one.

Wow, it is really something else, really a pleasure to shoot and extremely accurate.

Any of you shot one before? Own one? Would love to hear from others who enjoy bullpup rifle designs.

Here's a video I made by way of introduction to the FN FS 2000.

Couldn't agree more with what was stated in the video...Awesome rifle!!! I own both the PS-2000 and FN's 5.7 x 28 pistol and I throughly enjoy shooting both of them. I believe you have to shoot these guns to truly appreciate them. Wish there were more manufacturers of the ammo though as this one one round that is not reloader friendly.

My brother used to have one.

It was.... different.

I didn't like it, but it shot really well. It never had a bobble in the 3 or 400 hundred rounds we fired through it and my brother bought it used.

I didn't like the way the magazines went in or how they had to be pulled out.

I hated the rear BUIS, I think I would have done better using the front sight like a bead sighted shotgun.

I did like the lightness and how short it felt.

I thought it was very comfortable to shoot.

I thought the brass management was a really cool idea.

I liked the way the former owner had added a flashlight into the front handguard. (6P if I remember right)

There is a guy on M4Carbine.net that ran one in a Pat Rogers EAG course and wrote and article for SWAT on it and it worked well. (EdL is his screen name)

Surprisingly, my son and I were getting really good groups even with that lousy rear sight.
