Remain Vigilant on this Day to Remember…

On this anniversary of the September 11 attacks in 2001, it is important to remember those who were lost, and honor those brave men and women who risked their lives to help others. But it is even more important that we, as a nation, remain vigilant, and not let down our guard. “Remaining vigilant toward this ever-present threat means constantly learning how better to protect ourselves. [W]e must fight and win the war on terror, so that we do not have to fight it here in America.” — Mark Kennedy

FNH Introduces TBM Conversion Kit for SPR Rifles

FNH has released a “TBM” upgrade kit for owners of FNH SPR rifles with the standard .308-size, 4-round DBM magazine assembly. This kits lets current SPR owners utilize the TBM (tactical box magazine) assembly with 5- and 10-round magazines. This easy-to-install kit provides SPR owners with an ambidextrous mag release, along with the ability to use larger-capacity box magazines.

FNH TBM Kit

This $449.00 Kit comes with new trigger guard/bottom metal, both 5-round and 10-round TBM magazines, new action screws and instructions. For SPRs with box mags, this is a drop-in, no-gunsmithing upgrade that does not require gun modification or fitting to the rifle. (TSRs or PBRs with DBM equipment might require fitting by a gunsmith). Retrofit on SPRs can be accomplished in minutes with common tools (torque wrench required). Kits are available now through the FNH USA E-Store, Brownells, and Midway USA (item number 62655-01, MSRP $449).
