At AUSA 2015, FNH also showcases for the first time its FN Ballista Precision Sniper Rifle. Modern, modular and multi-caliber, the Ballista represents the future of precision rifle systems. Designed to deliver surgically precise fire, the rifle can be configured in less than two minutes to any of three available chambering (.338 Lapua Mag., .300 Win. Mag., and .308 Win.). Featuring repeatable accuracy with all chamberings, the Ballista employs a high strength, vibration-isolated aluminium alloy receiver with a top mounted MIL-STD 1913 rail. In addition, the rifle features multiple rail segments for the addition of accessories. Fluted barrels measure 26-inches, and the bores have polygonal rifling with a right-hand, constant twist rate. A fully adjustable trigger (for single or two-stage release between 3 and 5 pounds) and adaptable, ambidextrous, folding stock allow the shooter to configure the rifle for enhanced performance.

A new variant of the famous M249 SAW has been disclosed at AUSA, the MK46/MK48 Specialized Machine Gun for Special Missions. The 5.56x4mm MK 46 MOD 1 is the lightweight U.S. special operators’ variant of the M249 Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW). The 7.62x51mm MK 48 MOD 1, also used by U.S. special operators, was designed to be light and compact enough to keep up with fast moving troops as they maneuver on and close with the enemy. The MK 48 MOD 1 can additionally augment conventional ground forces as well, when a maneuverable, lightweight, larger caliber machine gun is needed. Both variants offer improved receiver pins, a feed tray with retention pawls and vented handguard with MIL-STD 1913 rails at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions. Enhanced heat shields and carry sling attachments help the operator to carry and deploy the weapon in combat assault missions. One spare barrel is included.

The FNS-9 Compact offers the same features as the standard models but has 3.6” barrels and is designed to be snag-free for better concealment and a faster draw. The front sight also has a larger dot for faster target acquisition. The FNS-9 Compact comes with two 12-round and one 17-round magazine.
