You can't. Even places like Palmetto contract FN for their barrels and such. When i can afford one, it will be mine.That is why I'm asking on a FN forum, if I was leaning Colt I would go to a colt forum....lol. Not much out their about the FN AR 15 yet, but I think I can't go wrong with a FN
My LGS has a FN-15 carbine. $999, plus FN is doing $125 rebate… I almost bit, but held back for this exact reason and plus I have a SCAR.While neither would be my first choice for an AR, between the two it would come down to price and availability. I was really excited when I heard about the FN AR15 coming out but VERY disappointed when I learned they don't have FN's cold hammer forged barrel. :-x
I'm calling BS. Oh Ill bet you if the FN15 came with a CHF barrel, they would not cost less, they would cost more. Do you really think BCM uses FN CHF barrels because they are "cheap"?I consider the the button rifled chrome plated FN barrel is a bonus over the cheaper made hammer forged barrel. Oh yes, indeed, the hammer forging process is strictly economical.
