FN SCAR16S Features

The SCAR-16S operates on a short-stroke gas piston action with an AR18-inspired multi-lug rotating bolt behind a 16 inch barrel.  The 16S signifies its lighter 5.56 caliber chamber, 16 inch barrel and Semi-automatic fire capability.  This rifle is topped with flip-up iron sights that offer a wide-open sight picture while the full-length top rail on its monolithic receiver can accommodate any optics setup the user wants.

FN SCAR16S Capacity

The SCAR-16S is chambered in 5.56x45mmNATO and feeds from all AR15 pattern magazines.  While the standard magazine size for the SCAR is 30 rounds, shorter 20 round magazines can be used as well as 10 round mags.  The SCAR can also feed from 60 round drum magazines as well as the 60 and 100 round quad-stack box magazines.
With an unloaded weight of 7.25 pounds, a folded length of 27.5 inches and a full length from 32.6 to 37.5 inches depending on stock position, the SCAR 16S offers easy maneuvering in all environments, far surpassing the capabilities of the AR15.  

FN SCAR16S Mobility


FN SCAR16S Ergonomics

The SCAR 16S takes many of its controls from the AR15 including its pistol grip, magazine release, safety and bolt release placement, though the safety utilizes a 45 degree throw instead of the 90 throw of the AR.  The magazine release is ambidextrous, as is the safety.  The reciprocating charging handle can be switched from the left to the right side depending on user preference.  The stock can be adjusted for length of pull as well as fold to the right side, and the rifle can be fired with the stock folded.

FN SCAR16S Fit & Finish

The FN SCAR-16S is made with a magnesium upper receiver, aluminum lower, and plenty of polymer components.  On the tan models, the colors of the parts never match due to the nature of anodizing  different metals with the same chemical slurry, so none of the parts are ever the right color.  With match-grade ammo, all SCAR rifles are guaranteed sub-MOA out of the box.
