Designed for U.S. SOCOM operations, FN's SCAR is a next-generation military rifle available in 5.56mm and 7.62mm NATO, SCAR Heavy and SCAR Light. The SCAR is a short stroke gas piston rifle that is magazine fed, air cooled, and is available in select fire and semi-auto versions. It's also lightweight but has very little recoil thanks to its excellent ergonomics. The SCAR was built for flexibility. Each model can be fitted with three different barrels to achieve different mission goals. The 10-inch barrel and folding stock make the SCAR into a close quarters subgun; the 14-inch and 18-inch barrels are more suited to longer range applications. The side-folding polymer stock is fully adjustable for comb height and length of pull.
