New FN SCAR®-SC Subcompact Carbine to be Unveiled at Milipol Paris 2017

At Milipol Paris 2017 FN Herstal, the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of small arms, will unveil 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 5.56mm x 45mm (.223) calibre 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, minimising training time.

Technical data (with telescopic buttstock):

● Length: 536mm (21.10in) when fully retracted / 653mm (25.71in) when fully extended ● Weight: approximately 3,150kg (approx. 6.94lb) ● Barrel length: 190.5mm (7.5in) ● Magazine capacity: 30 rounds ● Cyclic rate of fire: 550-650 rounds per minute

Other rifles in the FN SCAR® family include the FN SCAR®-L (5.56mm x 45mm/.223) and FN SCAR®-H (7.62 x 51m/.308) rifles, featuring interchangeable barrels, the underbarrel or standalone FN40GL® grenade launcher and the FN SCAR®-H PR precision rifle.

The flexible and mobile FN SCAR®-SC and the entire FN SCAR® range can be viewed at FN Herstal booth no. L110 at MILIPOL Paris 2017, 21-24 November.
