    Original french.
    One thing I was surprised by was that FNH did not try to refit the F2000 to try and enter it for the competition. F2000 is one of my Favorite bullpups and IMHO with some updates and redesigns could easily serve as a top of the line Assault rifle. but anyway the top contenders are now the SCAR L (La Scar) and HK416
