Nate Schultz shot this photo of Kelly Jo loving her SCAR16S. I went for an Olan Mills look and did not want to copy the originals. That was my thought process. Nate’s photo was inspired by a series of hilarious photos taken by a @gphd_ (also on Tumblr). [Read More…]
Some funny photos taken by Greg Skazinski. When people say a certain gun is too big for AIWB carry just show them this and tell them they are not trying hard enough. The Xmas sweaters are a nice touch. Anyone recognize the optic in the photo above? At first I thought it [Read More…]
Which would you choose? The SCAR or Galil in .308? Well George S. didn’t bother with that question and just got both. The Magpul Zhukov handguard really caught my attention. While the Galil is not quite like an AK, the Zhukov hanguard was easily modified to fit [Read More…]
According to SoldierSystems.net, FN America has shown a .260 Remington conversion unit for FN SCAR Mk 20. What makes this news even more interesting is that it happened shortly after the US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) announced that they are exploring a [Read More…]

Full disclosure: This news has been out for some time but no one has reported it. It looks like FN America has stepped up to the plate this time to protest Immigration & Customs Enforcement’s selection of the Sig P320 as their new duty sidearm. Previously, [Read More…]
The SCAR Stock has been jokingly compared to the popular Ugg Boot. It is not hard to see the resemblance especially in the FDE SCAR variants. As a joke, here is an AR with an Ugg Boot. Does it constitute as a redesign/remanufacture if I shoulder an Ugg Boot?
FN America just released their 2017 catalog. It’s a very tempting catalog to read, with a lot of nice firearms and pictures. There’s also the LE and Military section, what dreams are made of. One of the news, for consumer and law enforcement buyers – [Read More…]
Ah, what more do you need on a long winter’s night than a crackling fire, a warm drink and a pistol that you can use to fight your way back to your rifle. That saying never seems to get old… however, without starting a full-on blizzard of angry comments, a [Read More…]

Ian S. experienced quite a shock when his FNP tactical exploded. FN Tactical blew up on me today. Appears to have not been completely in battery so either really dirty or a high primer. Hands are burnt and really bruised but not bad considering. Also, +1 for eye pro. [Read More…]
Since FN was already sending us a 3-Gun focused rifle, it seemed only natural they would send along their SLP Competition 12-Gauge shotgun. I would have liked to run the two guns together in a 3-Gun match, but weather and my schedule prohibited it. That said, we did [Read More…]
PFC Coatings took apart a SCAR 17S to coat it with FDE Gun Kote. According to their Instagram page, there is something missing in this photo. They have not commented on what that is. Can you tell what is missing?

Someone posted this photo on Facebook. It is their suppressed FDE FN SCAR17S in a guitar case. Due to the folding stock design, it is a perfect fit in the guitar case. Perfect for discrete traveling. Do you use discrete cases for your firearms?
Amal Graafstra has been biohacking since 2000. For those not familiar with biohacking, it is the implantation of a device to interact with technology. The basic ones I have heard of are magnets embedded in finger tips. Other examples involved injecting a small RFID into [Read More…]
Jim Grant of Burst Review just posted a video showcasing the manufacturing process of the FN M249 SAW. Nothing much more fun than dumping loads of ammo through a belt fed automatic weapon.

This photo was posted in a SCAR Owners Group. It is short barreled MK17 caliber converted to shoot 5.56×45. The weapon is used by US Army Rangers and was seen at a Rangers Open House. The selector switch looks quite different to the MK17 and MK16 that [Read More…]
FourGuysGuns take a Suppressed SBR SCAR16S and bump fire it with a Magpul D60 drum mag feeding it. It is rather impressive the rate of fire they are getting out of this SCAR16S. I wonder what trigger they are running? Possibly a Geissele? I do not think you can get this [Read More…]
Part two of the FN America factory tour in Columbia, South Carolina would be the fun guns. The Columbia factory is where they make the M249SAW, M240B, and the MK19. As we walked throughout the factory floor, we could see batches of machine gun parts everywhere. They [Read More…]
