What function does this thing?

Link Posted: 3/31/2006 5:29:02 AM EST
That is the button you depress to adjust the length of the stock.

Hope this helps,
Clint

The last picture I saw of the SCAR was an ugly mustard yellow color but this one is a nice brown color.

This is a gun that looks different in every picture.

BTW, Where did you get the pics? Do you have any more?

YUP that button is to adjust the LOP........... those were taken at shot show right??
Link Posted: 3/31/2006 8:21:03 AM EST
Other 2 are for the cheek-weld height adjustment & the folding lock. I still want one in old-school black.
Link Posted: 3/31/2006 4:20:54 PM EST
I only knew these pictures come from to "Shoot Show 2006", should be an American photography.

Maybe that is what is used for barrel retention since it is quick change

How are you supposed to fire the weapon when the stock is folded. It looks as if the stock would prohibit the right trigger finger from reaching the trigger.

Has about the FN products forum?
Similar "AR15.COM", specialized, unofficial.
In us about at the firearms forum, the most popular topic is "SCAR".

Those are the scar rifles that were on display at the SHOT show. The SHOT show allows media.

If FN didn't want the world to see the scar rifles, they probably would not have displayed them in the first place.

A SCAR forum in the Armory section would be great, but it'd probably be best to wait until they actually get out into circulation. Hope '07 is the year.

Yeah, but it would be nice to have an FN forum now because the SCAR isn't the only rifle they make.

Since this is a special forces rifle why does it not come with what I thought was the special forces favorite flash suppressor? The Vortex? Instead it has a "knock off" of the A2 flash suppressor, and in the pics it's screwed on wrong with the slots facing down.
Link Posted: 4/1/2006 2:56:58 PM EST
I've got money sitting in the bank ready for both an L and an H version. The H by itself is going to create havoc on my ammo budget as I scramble to get my 7.62 round count up to my 5.56 level.

The flash hider is not a "knock off" of the A2, and I assure you it is installed correctly.
Link Posted: 4/1/2006 4:35:48 PM EST
Getting both, who knows, these maybe the last we can get , if we get another AWB in '08. I also would like a FN forum. I would also like a Sig forum so I can find all the 556 info in one place.

I thought the SCAR conforms to the American regarding the firearms idea.

Sure it is to the Gov't spec and serves a purpose.

BTW, the "Special Forces Favorite" flash hider is the KAC unit for the suppressor. You will be hard pressed to find another, even a standard A2 FH on a SOF issued M4A1.

This is, of course, assuming the thing makes it into mass circulation...

The Army seems content (for now) to stick with the AR platform (vis-a-vis Knights for the new SWS), so that leaves this thing stuck off in SOCOM-land with a few other 'unique' weapons not used elsewhere....

I wonder how much MAG-58/M240 shit made it into the 308 version.... FN seems to like to re-cycle that design (vis-a-vis barrels for the SPR, etc).....

Speaking of the 240:



That answer the flash hider question? Looks like another FN cross-over part....

Indeed it is.

I want a SCAR-H so bad I can taste it. I, too, have money set back for one. The -L, while cool, isn't quite the improvement that the -H is. There are no modern 7.62s that have comparable ergonomics and features to the SCAR-H.

I'm going to buy two of the fucking things.

Havoc, if you're taking suggestions...please make a spares kit available with the guns when they come to market. Oh, and hurry up and get the guns out before the next election, please.

Thanks!

Likely that the -L will be the base platform for the 6.8 caliber. That alone makes it a significant improvement (ammo cost not withstanding).

Will there be any provision for shooting with mittens/heavy gloves for the SCAR.

maybe in a later revision?

like the AR15 fold down trigger guard.

just curious

I hope so because I can see at least one glaring issue just by looking at the pics. The stock does not collapse enough to shorten the LOP sufficiently for CQB w/ a vest. You need to be able to get to the length of a fully closed M4 stock for short to average height folks' arms.

Also, I'd like to see them trim some fat off that pig of a reciever. It looks pretty bulky and not very streamlined.
