Bought a FN F2000

I had a impusle purchase this week. I bought a FN F2000 556. I paid $1500. The gun came with a storm 3100 molded case, two triggers, tactical sling and 4 30 round ar mags.
Did I get a good deal? Just wondering.....Review to come.

Deal or no Deal

Hell yes it is a deal... HA!

You picked up a rifle that should cost around $2000.00 give or take, new.

If the rifle has not been shot to hell it is well worth the $1500.00 with the extra's that came with it.

If it came with the Optic on the top rail you got an excellent deal that no one should ever question.

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

Good to hear

The rifle came with the 1.6x scope. It was out for a few months at $3000. I was thinking too high, even with the extras. It went down to $2700 in january, then $2000 in March. I walked in Friday at $1500 and had to try it. The sold it as "used never fired". Cant wait to shoot it this weekend.
They say it has a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer and a 2year from the gunshp.
I hope the accuracy is all the company claims.........review coming friday

sounds like you got a great deal as long as the gun is in good condition all those extras the guy must have really wanted to get rid of the thing

The guy who sold it has another FS2000 without the scope. He just needed some money or so I told. Never trust salesmen.

You definitely got a deal for sure.

Here I was thinking that picking up a CZ P01 with maybe 300 rounds through it for $275.00 was the best deal I've seen in a while. LOL

you sir have pissed on my parade !

HA!

Can you elaborate on the two triggers?

I've become so accustom to my AR15 that there's no way I could get use to reloading under my arm. The AR15 is perfect because my hand is already on the the magazine and the release button is right under my right thumb. (I'm a Southpaw)

A "lefty" check

Welcome aboard bro, how is your weapon set up? I have no experience with left handed AR's but it seems to me that if you moved the mag release to the other side of the weapon, it's still nowhere near your thumb, please elaborate. (In edit), are you speaking of the 'safety/select fire lever? That would make sense.

Reloading is easier

Reloading is easier. But I would still stick with an AR. I am really impressed with the FN but nothing beats a good AR

J3T3RArmy.. take a look at what he's done here.. None of the "full auto" posting.. A serious response and comment..

EXACTLY what was asked for.. a chance to comment, and be part of our crew here.. Theres no way to know what the etiquette is unless someone either asks or is advised, fact is i advised him cause he made an effort to stop by and comment every day..

Think we all saw the same 15-20 comments in a row.. i sent him a short pm on "etiquette" and this is what we got back.. J3 is making an effort to be one of us (your standards are WAY to low bud) ha ha.. Can we maybe welcome him aboard.. yep im asking for an "amen".. "check" or "welcome"

Let me start it off.. welcome aboard J3.. what ya want to be called?

Hamp..

got me laughing.. Yep with you, but nice to have a real comment as opposed to the obvious.. I will say if you don't know, you don't know, (talking about earlier stuff) and smart enough to follow guidance.. will see..

Hows Steve doing.. They have a time line for the surgery or what.. his spirits holding up ok?.. His wife still on the MIA list?..
