Current Stock:

The fast-handling and quick-shooting FN SCAR® 16S is upgraded with Non-Reciprocating Charging Handles. The new, dual charging handles enable any shooting position, grip style or optic choice, ensuring any braced or barrier-contact position shoots flawlessly. A rugged, monolithic upper receiver with MIL-STD-1913 rail provides space for rail-mounted accessories, and a folding buttstock fits any shooter with adjustable length of pull and cheek rest height. The FN SCAR 16S in 5.56x45mm is the benchmark for reliability and versatility from a light recoiling, piston-driven platform.
