South Carolina Department of Public Safety Selects FN 15 Patrol Carbine

Recommended Posts

FN America recently announced that the South Carolina Department of Public Safety has selected the FN 15 Patrol Carbine for its Highway Patrol, State Transport and Protective Service officers. FN also said it delivered 300 initial carbines, via Amchar Wholesale, with another 300 units due through 2020.

“The FN 15 Patrol Carbine, designed and produced in FN’s South Carolina production facility, was a natural fit for its home state’s public safety officers,” said Bucky Mills, Senior Director of Law Enforcement Sales for FN America, LLC. “FN’s proven track record of producing government-issue M4-style carbines and our ability to offer the agency a carbine that they could custom-build to meet their exact requirements provided them the opportunity to have a quality rifle unique to their agency with a cost-efficient price structure.”

The FN 15 Patrol Carbine features the ability to configure to agency needs directly from the factory, according to FN. Further, agencies often start with an affordably-priced base rifle. Additionally, basic options include a Magpul MOE handguard with M-LOK, 16-inch button-broached barrel with fixed sights, 12-o’clock Picatinny rail for optics and a lower receiver with an ambidextrous selector switch, according to FN. Above all, agencies have the option to configure other components, including slings, sights, magazines, rear stocks and accessory rails.

“Within the police community there is a need for solid, simple and affordable carbines with only the necessary upgrades to get the job done,” said Dave Bahde in our initial review of the FN 15 Patrol Carbine. “Many armorers want weapons with chrome-lined bores and other features as close to the original military specifications as possible. Many major manufacturers abandoned these requirements years ago, either to keep costs down or to meet demand, but FN America has done a nice job with the FN 15 Patrol Carbine, adhering to very high quality standards.

This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
