FN F2000: World’s Dangerous Rifle

The FN F2000 is a fully automatic 5.56x45mm NATO bullpop assault rifle. It is a gas operated rifle. The FN F2000 was the seventh most dangerous gun in the world. It was designed and manufactured by FN Herstal in Belgium. It was first shown in Abu Dhabi during the IDEX defense exhibition last 2001.

Pic3The FN F2000 is composed of two main assemblies: the barreled receiver group and the frame. The assemblies are joined together by an axis pin. The hand guard, which is removable, is in front of the trigger and encloses the trigger guard. It has a 5.50 Caliber where the shooter can shoot the target at the range of 500 meters. It can also shoot 850 rounds per minute. The safety system and the trigger “mechereceiceranism” were both patterned from the previous gun P90 Personal Defense weapon. The weapon can be secured easily from accidental discharge when the fire selector doubles and has become the weapon manual safety. When the setting is set to “safe”, the trigger is disabled from functioning. The shell of the rifle is made with composite materials. Most of the parts of the rifle are made of nylon injection molding, but its hammer, group pins and springs are made of steel.

In firing the last round, the bolt does not stay back. This is the main reason why the rifle has no hold-open device. It has a weapon sight with a fixed magnification of 1.6x located in the receiver. The reticle prevents the rifle to be used in low light conditions. It has a grenade launcher which uses standard, low velocity 40 x 46 mm grenades. The grenade launcher’s trigger is directly under the F2000 trigger for ease of access without really causing problems to the user. This gun comes in three variants.
