Early 2004, United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) issued a solicitation for a family of Special Forces Combat Assault Rifles, the so-called SCAR, designed around two different calibers but featuring high commonality of parts and identical ergonomics.

FN Herstal took part in the full and open competition and released prototypes of a brand new family of weapons within timeframe taking advantage of our long-standing firearms know-how.

From the first pre-selection tests, the FN SCAR® system developed by FN Herstal has remained the first and only choice of USSOCOM. 


  • Modular

    The FN SCAR®-H STD assault rifle is chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO caliber and is fitted with a standard 16" barrel.

    The operator can replace the standard barrel with a short 13" barrel for close quarter combat in less than five minutes. The rifle is then called FN SCAR®-H CQC.

The FN SCAR®-H STD assault rifle can be fitted with a FN40GL®-H grenade launcher mounted on the lower rail of the rifle, for additional firepower.

  • Adaptable

    The FN SCAR® assault rifle features a foldable buttstock, an adjustable cheek piece (2 positions) and an adjustable length of pull (6 positions) to adapt to any operators.
