Photo Of The Day – the best online place to view the coolest images of firearms and soldiers. Today we have a really badass image from the French Army, of their “fusil d’assaut” the FN SCAR-L CQC, in caliber 5,56 mm NATO.
The French Armée de terre bought 2600 rifles in 2019, but as you know the Heckler & Koch HK416 is their main issue rifle as the FAMAS is phased out.
The FN SCAR-L CQC is a Close Quarter Combat version, with a 250 mm (10″) barrel. All we’re missing is a suppressor, for everything to be complete.
Here’s what FN America has to say about the CQC version (Source).
Chambered for the high-velocity 5.56x45mm NATO/.223 Remington cartridge, the selective-fire FN SCAR® 16’s innovative gas-operated, short-stroke piston system reduces fouling for greater reliability. The FN SCAR® 16 system features three user-interchangeable, free-floating cold hammer-forged MIL-SPEC barrels with hard-chromed bores and three-prong flash suppressors. Fully ambidextrous operating controls instantly adapt the FN SCAR® 16 to any user. The receiver-integrated MIL-STD-1913 optical rail plus three accessory rails enable mounting of a wide variety of tactical lights and lasers. The side-folding polymer stock is fully adjustable for comb height and length of pull, and is colored authentic Flat Dark Earth (FDE).
