FN EVOLYS® 5.56
ULTRALIGHT MACHINE GUNFires like a machine gun, handles like a rifle
The brand new FN EVOLYS® Ultralight Machine Gun combines the firing capabilities of a belt-fed machine gun with ergonomics and balance similar to an assault rifle, and complements the existing FN machine gun portfolio. The FN EVOLYS® has been developed in two calibres, 5.56x45mm NATO and 7.62x51mm NATO.
The FN EVOLYS® 5.56, with a weight of approx. 5.5 kilos, is much lighter than current reference machine guns.
Innovative and unique architecture, including patented lateral feed mechanism:
- A one-piece long top rail enables mounting a combination of various in-line optics such as day and night sights together, or magnifiers for instance, without removing the iron sights.
- Automatic repositioning of the belt onto the feed tray
- Automatic last link ejection
