The FN Special Police is a newly designed police tactical rifle, built by FN in the USA. Since USRAC is owned by FN, and USRAC owns Winchester firearms, it was natural for FN to use the Winchester control round feed action and bolt. They then took a rotary forged barrel of their own, chrome lined it, and mounted it. The next step was a HS Precision Pro Stock. They use the standard aluminum bedding block in all HS Precision stocks, which is good, but I personally feel glass/steel bedding is better (but I really do not have a lot of facts to back this claim up with). The detachable box magazine is always a nice, and preferred feature, I am glad to see more rifles coming out with this feature.

These rifles shoot pretty nice, with sub .75 MOA accuracy with factory match ammo, and occasionally dropping down to .5 MOA. They are a comfortable rifle to shoot, and I’ve always liked the palm swell and texture of the HS Precision stocks. These rifles are a bit more expensive then the Remington 700P’s, but they shoot a bit better then unmodified 700P’s. I am somewhat impressed with these rifles and recommend them for department use. I do prefer the Remington action over the Winchester (and especially the Remington trigger). But the performance speaks for itself and cannot be argued with.

I have 2 of your fire arrms the 45 and the 308 pictured here I think.They are both wonderful. Just saw a space to tell you thanksdont often get to tell the MFG and their enployees.how satisfied you are with there products.


I have a Gen 1 rifle like the one pictured. With a Leopold 6.5-20 Scope and PPU 175 gr Match ammo this rifle consistently held head sized groups at 650 yards. These groups were obtained by all six shooters in attendance, so it wasn’t the shooter, it was the rifle. Everyone that shoots this rifle wants to buy it from me. Thank you for an absolutely outstanding .308 bolt rifle. I love it!
