Below, is the announcement from FN on the new FN 15 DMR3 rifle.
FN America, LLC announces the release of three new FN 15® models in designated marksman rifle (DMR) configuration. In its third edition, the FN 15 DMR3 is now available in several new colors – matte black anodize, flat dark earth (FDE) or tungsten gray Cerakote. The FN 15 DMR3 has received several notable upgrades to enhance accuracy and curb felt recoil including a new 18-inch barrel, SureFire ProComp muzzle brake and Geissele two-stage trigger.
The all-new DMR3 is an extremely accurate and reliable rifle with an 18-inch Hybrid-profile that provides the just-right balance between rigidity for accuracy and a weight light enough for quick maneuverability. The cold hammer-forged barrel is chrome-lined with 1:8 twist made from FN’s proprietary machine gun barrel steel and features a rifle-length gas system with pinned low-profile gas block. Finished with a SureFire ProComp muzzle brake, felt recoil is drastically reduced and the rifle’s muzzle stays flat for faster shot-to-shot recovery.
The 14 5/8-inch aluminum handguard uses Hodge Defense’s wedge-lock technology for an extremely rigid setup that minimizes deflection and allows for a fully free-floated barrel, further aiding accuracy. It’s continuous MIL-STD Picatinny rail at 12 o’clock and multiple M-LOK attachment slots allow the user to fully customize the setup, with ample space for optics and other accessories.
The MIL-SPEC lower receiver is forged aluminum and features an M16-style bolt carrier group with high pressure/magnetic particle inspected and certified bolt. The addition of the Geissele two-stage precision G2S trigger allows for exceptional trigger control with the first stage trigger pull ranging from 4.25-4.75lbs and the second stage ranging from 2.75-3lbs.
Finished with FN’s custom furniture including ergonomic pistol grip, six-position collapsible carbine stock and 30-round magazine along with Radian Raptor-LT ambidextrous charging handle and Radian Talon ambidextrous safety selector.
