This article describes the FN plant in South Carolina. FN makes M16, M240 and other weapons for the US military there. FN has been expanding the plant steadily over the last few years and is waiting for the biggest prize in the US small arms business – next years M4 competition. Currently Colt makes all of the M4 carbines and has since the Nineties. There have been many complaints about its performance and even if FN won the contract many of the design issues could not be fixed without going to a whole new weapon. The contest next year will be interesting.
