In the world of .223/5.56 NATO semi-autos, it doesn't get any better than the FNH 16S. I've owned this rifle for almost 4 years, and can honestly say that it is the perfect blend of performance and world-class engineering and manufacturing. I have shot dozens of AR platforms, including some that cost a lot more than the FNH 16S, but this rifle wins hands down. The barrel twists at 1-in-7 so the accuracy and shot repeatedly out of the box are excellent with all rounds that we have used. I prefer 5.56 NATO rounds at 62 gr over lighter .223 rounds, but the rifle does well with both loads. It really hums with 79 gr SMK match rounds as well - repeatable groupings to _ 0.75 MOA at 100-200 yds. The rifle shines with respect to field stripping and cleaning. The FNH engineers got it right. I can break down the rifle to its lowest level in under 30 secs. Compared to other ARs, the short stroke piston and gas chamber design on the FNH 16S are a real pleasure to clean up after a day of sending 200-300 rounds down range. Done in under a minute. The standard iron sites are quite good, but I'm a 50-something guy with multi-focal eyesight, so I run the rifle with either a Trijicon ACOG 4x32mm TA01NSN (50-400 yds) or an EOTech Model 512.A65 at _50 yds. I have only two comments regarding improvements/things to keep in mind: (1) the factory trigger is a heavy puller (7.5-9 lbs), which is what one would expect for a battle rifle. If you plan to shoot tight groups at _= 100 yds, you may want to consider a Geissele SuperSCAR trigger job; (2) if you want to use PMags instead of the FNH factory mags, make sure that you only use the newer Gen 3 PMags, which fit the 16S SCAR lower. The earlier generation PMags cause the bolt catch to stick up a bit, which can destroy a lower receiver quite quickly. Final thought: Yes, it ain't cheap...but this is a text book example of getting what you pay for. Also, pricing, customer service, and delivery from Hinterlands is the industry standard in my opinion. I have bought and FFL'ed multiple firearms from Hinterlands, and the process could not be more professional and hassle-free.
