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

15 November 2017

(Herstal, Belgium) – November 15, 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 5.56x45mm (.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.

Technical data (with telescopic buttstock):

● Length: 536mm (21.10”) when fully retracted / 653mm (25.71”) when fully extended

● Weight: approx. 3.150 kg (approx. 6.94 lb)

● Barrel length: 190.5mm (7.5”)

● 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 (5.56x45mm/.223) and FN SCAR®-H (7.62x51m/.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, November 21-24.
