FN America announces the expansion of the FN SCAR 20S series of rifles with new caliber and color options.
FN America states “We are pleased to announce that the popular FN SCAR® 20S long-range, precision rifle, released in 2018, is now available in 6.5 Creedmoor. This new chambering also accompanies new color options for the platform with the rifle now offered in a matte black finish as well as the company’s signature flat dark earth (FDE).
FN SCAR® 20S 6.5 CM FDE
The 6.5 Creedmoor-chambered rifle will feature a 20-inch, 1:8” righthand twist barrel with SureFire ProComp 762 muzzle device. The barrel is made from FN’s proprietary machine gun steel and is cold hammer-forged and chrome-plated for extended life.
Like the 7.62 FN SCAR 20S, the rifle features an extended monolithic receiver with ample space to mount optics, Geissele Super SCAR trigger with an average of 4lb. trigger pull, FN MK 20 SSR precision stock that is adjustable for length of pull and comb height, as well as the Hogue grip. Both the FN SCAR 20S in 7.62 and 6.5 Creedmoor accept the 10- or 20-round FN SCAR 17S magazines.
FN SCAR® 20S 6.5 CM BLK
The 6.5mm Creedmoor has taken the long-range shooting market by storm with its increased efficiency, reduced recoil, availability and price of high-quality match-grade ammunition coupled with a cartridge design that is inherently accurate. FN first prototyped the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge in the FN MK 20 SSR or sniper support rifle when USSOCOM announced plans last year to explore the cartridge for future adoption.”
