Where Can I Get ... User-Installed, Buttstock Adapter For FN SCAR Rifles?

Fabrique Nationale’s SCAR line of semi-automatic carbines are fine guns in their own right, but the Belgian company’s decision to use a proprietary buttstock design limits the amount of customization that can be made to the firearms. Mesa Tactical’s new Faro stock adapter addresses this limitation once installed by allowing the user to remove the gun’s factory buttstock and replace it with virtually any AR-15-style stock. undefined

Mesa Tactical has been making similar stock adapters for shotguns for many years, but this is their first design intended for use with a rifle. Constructed of investment cast A365-T6 aluminum, the Faro adapter replaces the SCAR’s factory buttstock assembly and accepts either rifle- or carbine-length AR-15 buffer tubes. The Faro is available either by itself or with an AR-style receiver extension included. The receiver extension screws into the Faro, which is then installed in place of the factory stock assembly using a provided hex key.

Once mounted, the comb height in relation to the SCAR’s top Picatinny rail is identical to that of a flat-top AR-15. The Faro adapter fits both the SCAR 16S and SCAR 17S rifles, and—like the guns themselves—is available in black and Flat Dark Earth. It also features an integral QD sling attachment point on each side.

There is a dizzying selection of AR-15-style buttstocks on the market today, with multiple configurations available for practically any application the shooter could desire, and Mesa Tactical’s Faro now brings that versatility and adaptability to the FN SCAR. Price: $110 (with receiver extension), $65 (without). Contact: Mesa Tactical, 1135 Baker Street, Costa Mesa, CA, 92626; (714) 545-3332; mesatactical.com.
