South Carolina-based FN America on Tuesday announced they were expanding caliber and color options for the popular SCAR 20S series.
Based on the FN MK 20 SSR (sniper support rifle) first developed for USSOCOM, the SCAR 20S was first released two years ago on the consumer market in an FDE version chambered in 7.62 NATO. Moving forward, the FDE will still be an option, as will a new matte black finish. Further, 6.5 Creedmoor has joined the lineup.
While the standard 20S in 7.62 uses the SCAR’s distinctive muzzle device, the new 6.5CM version will sport a Surefire ProComp 762 muzzle brake/compensator, which is billed by SureFire as greatly reducing recoil impulse. The cold hammer-forged and chrome-plated 20-inch barrel uses a 1-in-8 right-hand twist and is crafted from FN’s legendary machine gun steel.
The FN SCAR 20S, in both 7.62 NATO and 6.5 Creedmoor, sports M1913 rails at 3, 6, 9 o’clock positions for optics and accessories. (Photos: FN)
