    FN Herstal is building their library of buttstocks, to make the new FN SCAR-SC more attractive to Special Units of the Police and the Army. The new buttstock (pictured above and below) is shown right now at Enforce Tac 2018.

    With the foldable buttstock (in the folded position) you get down to 462.1 mm total length, just above 18″ in total length.

    The new short telescopic buttstock will get you down to 507.4mm or just below 20″ collapsed.
