FN SCAR-L by Drake-UK FN SCAR-L by Drake-UK
Photo Taken with a Canon 300D Rebel with stock 18-55mm lens.

The last of a previous set of snaps taken at random when I had the opportunity to shoot in the sun.

Pictured is a replica of the FN (Fabrique Nationale de Herstal) SCAR-L in flat dark earth.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The SOF Combat Assault Rifle, or SCAR, is a modular rifle made by Fabrique Nationale de Herstal (FNH) for the U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) to satisfy the requirements of the SCAR competition.

This family of rifles consist of two main types. The SCAR-L, for light, is chambered in the 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge and the SCAR-H, for heavy, fires 7.62x51mm NATO ammunition. Both are available in Long Barrel and Close Quarters Combat variants.

The FN SCAR system completed low rate initial production testing in June 2007. After some delays, the first rifles began being issued to operational units in April 2009, and a battalion of the US 75th Rangers will be the first large unit deployed into combat with 600 of the rifles in 2009.

this is my favorite assault rifle, I love the SCAR L, and H, its performance is great and looks sexy, however I much rather like the Grenade launcher equipped with it, in case you need the extra fire power ;) nice photo!
