FNH USA’s SCAR, chosen by U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) as its next generation modular assault rifle system, will soon be available in a commercial version. The properties of the SCAR include its modularity, 99 percent of parts are interchangeable among same caliber platforms and 82 percent of parts are interchangeable among the various platforms, rapid adaptability and reliability. This rifle has a 90,000-round service life and a more than 30,000-round barrel life. The SCAR's free floating barrels are easily changed by loosening six screws, and all major windage and elevation adjustments are made at the permanently attached front sight. U.S. government and manufacturer testing prove that, once removed and reinstalled, a SCAR barrel will return within one minute of angle (1 MOA) to the previously established zero.
