Is it true that FN is planning to put out civillian version of the SCAR and if so when?

Tag/possible IBTL due to dupage. I know that there is a thread tacked somewhere...

I don't think it's all that unlikely seeing that they are releasing the P-90 and F-2000

so was the p90, it blew me away when they came out with a 16" ps90; the fn2000 is coming out, so I wouldn't doubt they will bring out a 16" version

Why would that stop them from releasing a civvie SCAR, when the sale of the FS2000 dies down? The PS90 isn't even a competitor in the 16" 5.56mm rifle market. I'd think the more sales the better, be it FS2000's or SCARs.

Well, if nothing else, when they find out that there's just only so much market for .223 battle rifles, they'll be happy to sell the SCAR here.

The FS2000 currently carries a price tag between $1800 and $2200 before outrageous markups.
I haven't seen or heard of a civilian FN ARM/SCAR being released this year. If it is coming out, I would expect at least 1-2 years wait. They may want to fulfill the government contracts first.

Last I heard was end of '06 or beginning of '07 for the light, I haven't heard any release dates for the heavy. But we should know for certain tomorrow.
