FN Announces SCAR 20S Precision Rifle For The Commercial Market

FN SCAR 20S Precision Rifle

I do love my airsoft SCAR rifles. I got to own the built like a tank Classic Army SCAR-L AEG 11 years ago and still heavily use my Tokyo Marui SCAR-L and was able to play once with the Tokyo Marui SCAR-H and they have been impressive AEGs that I make sure I have a SCAR in my personal armoury.  But the FN SCAR family is not only the SCAR-L and SCAR-H, SCAR MK 20 SSR, SCAR-SC and the Heat Adaptive Modular Rifle (HAMR). I think there are more in this list as there are those variants offered for LE use.

But here comes the latest for commercial and law enforcement use, the FN SCAR 20S Precision Rifle. It uses the 7.62mm round just like the SCAR-H and the SCAR MK 20 SSR.

It is kitted with MIL-STD-1913 accessory rails at the 3-, 6-, 9-, and 12 o’clock positions.

The gas-operated piston was designed to recoil efficiently to be able improve follow-up shots and maintain target acquisition. Out of the factory, it comes installed with a double-stage Geissele Super SCAR trigger that provides a 3.5 to 4.5-pound trigger pull.
