FN Herstal is part of Herstal Group that is known around the globe for the quality of its products. Under the brands FN Herstal, Browning and Winchester, Herstal Group designs, manufactures and distributes a full range of firearms and accessories for defense, law enforcement, hunting and marksmanship.
Yup. The model 70 is now being made in the FNH plant in SC where they make the M-249 and M-240 mgs. FNH has owned USRAC and Browning for quite some time.FNH is also designing a new tactical rifle on the Model 70 design. I believe they also own Browning along with Winchester Repeating Arms
