FN America has announced the latest commercial addition to its SCAR lineup. The FN SCAR 20S precision rifle, based on the FN MK20 SSR (Sniper Support Rifle) currently fielded in USSOCOM, is a chambered in 7.62x51 mm, and achieves 1-MOA accuracy to 100 yards with match-grade ammunition. The 20", 1:12" twist, heavy-profile barrel and barrel extension, combined with an extended, monolithic receiver, add additional rigidity to reduce movement between shots. Meanwhile, the MK20 SSR buttstock features adjustable length of pull and comb height to customize the fit to each shooter, while the factory-installed, double-stage Geissele Super SCAR trigger achieves a 3.5-4.5-lb. trigger pull.

“Customers will notice that the FN SCAR 20S shares more commonalities than differences with the MK20 SSR and reaffirms our commitment to producing commercial versions of our iconic military firearms,” said FN America President and CEO Mark Cherpes.

MSRP: $4,499
