Last month (April), DefenseReview received a link to an entertaining FN SCAR Mk16 MOD 0 (CQC config) a.k.a. FN SCAR-Light a.k.a. FN SCAR-L select-fire SBR/subcarbine firing demonstration video via email from a contact of ours at FNH USA. The shooter in the video fires 2-round full-auto bursts, a 30-round mag dump, and semi-auto shots at 50 yards. He also fires the weapon with the stock folded.

Defense Review has been following the USSOCOM SCAR Program a.k.a. Mk16/Mk17 Program since its inception, and, from the information we’re receiving of late, the LRIP weapons are looking pretty good (unconfirmed/unverified). We’ll see.  DefRev looks forward to T&E’ing civilian-legal semi-auto versions of them at some point this year. However, first, we’d like to to perform a high-round-count/adverse conditions T&E of the Mk16 and Mk17 in all configurations (barrel lengths, etc.) at the FNH USA or FN Manufacturing firing range.

Anyway, we wanted to share the FN SCAR Mk16 MOD 0 firing demo video clip with our readers. Click on the link below to view it.
