FN America has announced the release of its limited-edition FN FDE & BLK Series. It’s essentially eight firearms—five pistols and three rifles—in a flat dark earth (FDE) and black color scheme.

In terms of pistols, the FN FDE & BLK lineup includes the FN 509, FNS-9 Compact, FNX-45, FNX-45 Tactical and FN Five-seveN. The three rifles models to make the cut are the FN 15 Tactical Carbine II, FN M249S and FN M249S PARA. FN says all the features on these guns are the same as those found on the standard offerings.
