In our follow-up, we’ll also cover FNH’s new underbarrel-mounted Enhanced Grenade Launcher Module (EGLM), which…
we got to play with. The EGLM attaches and detaches to the weapon via a simple system that’s fast to operate. We’ll go into further detail about the EGLM’s features and quick-attach/detach system in our follow-up piece. In the meantime, we can tell you that the EGL is a slick little unit, and a definite improvement over the M203 series.
Rumor has it that the FN SCAR-H and SCAR-L are not only reliable and durable, but also easily controlled on full-auto (unconfirmed/unverified). We’ll try to get confirmation one way or the other on this before we actually T&E the guns at the FNH USA range, which we’ll hopefully be doing soon.
So the reader is aware, DefRev did shoot photos of the guns at the FNH USA booth, but they didn’t turn out all that great, due to lighting issues. Even so, we would still publish them, except we haven’t been cleared by FNH USA to do so, yet. We also scanned some new FN SCAR-L/SCAR-H literature that we collected at the booth, but we can’t show this either, yet.
Basically, we can’t show you much of anything, at the moment. Please believe us that this isn’t by choice. As soon as we receive clearance, we’ll fill you in (with MUCH more detailed info). In the meantime, we just wanted to give our readers a quick heads-up, and let you know that we’re on top of things regarding the FN SCAR weapons family.
So, stay tuned. Don’t change that dial.
