FN Herstal Unveils New SCAR-SC Subcompact Carbine at Milipol Paris 2017.

FN Herstal, the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of small arms, will unveils an innovative addition to its renowned FN SCAR® family: The FN SCAR®-SC subcompact carbine. FN SCAR® rifles have a proud tradition of usage by US Special Forces. The 5.56x45mm (.223) caliber FN SCAR®-SC builds on this heritage with an extremely compact design that’s ideal for homeland security operations.

Specifically adapted for mobility and flexibility, the FN SCAR®-SC has semi-auto only or selective fire capabilities, non-reciprocating charging handle and a wide range of add-ons. This includes a red dot sight, tactical light, a variety of foregrips and a sound suppressor. All of these add-ons have been tested and certified by FN Herstal as providing reliable, durable performance in even the toughest circumstances.

The FN SCAR®-SC comes with a telescopic buttstock as standard. Optional buttstocks include fixed, foldable, adjustable (length and height) with either concave or convex butt plate and a foldable offset buttstock for aiming and shooting with anti-riot or bulletproof helmet visor. Existing users of FN SCAR® will already be familiar with how to operate this rifle, minimizing training time.
