Select Fire: FN Factory Tour to see how M240s, SCARs and 509s are Born

In this episode of Select-Fire, we packed our bags for FN’s factory in Columbia, South Carolina to see how they craft the “world’s most battle-proven firearms.”

FN, or Fabrique Nationale d’Armes de Guerre, was originally formed in 1889 in Belgium, where they have a rich history and are still active today. After initially producing more than 150,000 Mauser bolt-action rifles for the Belgian government and others, they soon entered into a long collaboration with American firearms genius John Moses Browning. This relationship led to the Auto 5, the world’s first successful mass-produced semi-auto shotgun– a design that proved so popular it remained in production for almost a full century.

Browning and FN also produced some of the most iconic semi-auto pistols of the early 20th Century including the Model 1900, 1910, 1922 and the revolutionary Hi-Power, which set the bar for a double-stack combat handgun for generations. For the hat-trick, FN also produced variants of the Browning Automatic Rifle, which saw military service around the world, and collaborated with the inventor’s sons and grandsons on commercial designs even as the gun maker introduced its wildly successful FAL series of battle rifles. Today, they still produce the M2 Browning heavy machine gun, the vaunted “Ma Deuce,” which is the Western standard for rock and roll support weapons.

Speaking of going cyclic, FN came to South Carolina in 1981 to produce the M240 medium machine gun for the U.S. military. A variant of the company’s extremely popular FN MAG 58, the company still makes over 300 M240s in the Palmetto State every month.

Besides the M240, the Columbia plant also cranks out 500 M4 rifles for military contracts every single day.

FN makes roughly 500 M4s every day. After they’re test fired, they’re disassembled, cleaned, then reassembled and given a 101-point inspection. Then, they’re literally dipped in preservation oil and packaged 50 rifles to a large wooden crate.

Other current FN staples include the Minimi–short for the French “Mini Mitrailleuse” or mini machine gun– which was adopted in the U.S. as the M249 SAW along with specialized variants like the Mk 46 and Mk 48; the MK19 40mm grenade machine gun, and the M3 .50 cal.

The company’s past success and the desire to constantly innovate led to the development of modern firearm platforms that have seen adoption across not only military and law enforcement users but on the commercial market as well. These include the FN Five-SeveN, the FN-15, the FNS/FNX, and 509 series handguns, as well as the crowd-pleasing SCAR.

The SCAR is an excellent example of a weapon system developed by FN for the military, that went on to be very successful in the consumer market.

And to see how they are all born, check out the latest Select Fire installment, above.
Mrgunsngear Channel : been there many times; great video
D F : I was employed at FN in Columbia for 11 years (08-19). Spent most of that time in the M240 area and a little in SCAR/FN-15 and M4. Outstanding place to work and a dedicated crew of hard working men and women.
Jacki Billings : Love this! Such a cool, behind-the-scenes look at one of my fave manufacturers! Great job!
Earnest Blofeld : All that hard work, dedication and pride, delivering an excellent product to freedom-loving Patriots. And some totalitarian dork from Texas wants to forcibly take them all.
Fumasterchu : Talk about a dream job, I've worked in many factories but never a gun manufacturer. I love FN products, from the first one I bought decades ago until the one I just bought this week. High quality, reliable, and great innovations!

The FN M249S: Is it worth $8,000?

The FN M249S, a semi-automatic version of the M249 SAW light machine gun chambered in 5.56x45mm. Is it worth the $8,000 price tag?

APB 28 : Certain people would have you believing that a machinegun is so much more deadly than a semi-auto gun. NFA Sucks
Larry Diffey : As a former USMC SAW gunner, I see very little point to having one in semi-automatic. But hey, if they let the full auto versions out, then sign me up.
Richard Escareno : The 249 Saw is off the charts in cool factor @ any range & a back up if you needed it in a pinch. Slick as Hell. Check out Vz 59 UKM by Marcolmar sold by Atlantic Firearms. It's beast of a belted gun in 762x59R & less money than 249 Saw. If any one of these guns had a fostech Echo trigger installed it would be killer platform.
Beerrunner81 : I would say it's not worth it. Ya you have 200 rounds to blow through but it's not worth the expense. Full auto I would say go for it.
Pro2AGuy : I'd get one if money were of no object for the collectibility and fun of it.
