Is there any chance that FN will produce a bolt action sporter rifle? I'd like to have something along the line of an Anschutz 1700 bolt rifle for coyote control.
Q3:What future weapons platforms do you have planned for the 5.7 round?
A: 5.7 Boltgun based on a ultra short Model 70 action--April 2008
The last set of Q&A closed before I saw this on the Shooting Industry web siteShipWreck said:
No mention of a 5.7 bolt gun."The PBR (Patrol Bolt Rifle) lineup now includes the PBR-USA Ultra Short Action. Chambered for .223 Rem, the rifle has a forged machined steel receiver and 20" Mil-Spec match-grade, hammer-forged steel barrel. The FN/Hogue Ultra-Short Action synthetic stock is available in Olive Drab and Matte Black."
Well, that's not up to us here at the FN Forum... And, I kinda think it would be doubtful, but it doesn't hurt to ask, I suppose...Vibe said:Shipwreck or FnMan. If and when the 5.7 PBR goes into production is there any chance we could get in on a preorder for the first production run? And a projected MSRP would make saving up for that much easier.
