In 2017, at the French exhibition Milipol, TFB told you about and showed you pictures of FN Herstal’s SCAR-SC with 300 BLK in development.
Time flies, and as Enforce Tac 2019 open 6 – 7 March 2019 in Nuremberg (Germany), TFB will be there to examine the real one.

FN’s Press Release:
At the end of 2017, FN Herstal launched its new FN SCAR®-SC Subcompact Carbine in 5.56x45mm (.223), especially designed for Law Enforcement personnel. A variant of the weapon will be introduced officially to the market at ENFORCE TAC on March 6-7 in Nuremberg, Germany.
The FN SCAR-SC is now also available in 7.62x35mm (.300 BLK) caliber. It features a standard telescopic buttstock and is available with a wide choice of buttstock types and accessories to accommodate the specific needs of the users.
Additional developments will include all FN SCAR® carbines and rifles being now available with a receiver with Picatinny type side rails or KeyMod receiver
But that’s not all of it.
FN Herstal will also be showing the FN SCAR®-L rifle recently selected by Bavarian Police as their next rifle (“Mitteldistanzwaffe”).
Their version is a semi-auto weapon with a 13” barrel, KeyMod receiver, and RFID tag integrated into the receiver. The caliber is 5.56 mm x 45 caliber.
The RFID tag is an in-house-designed electronic system developed by FN Herstal that allows digital identification of the weapon, hence enabling optimized inventory and in-and-out management of the weapon fleet. The RFID tag can be integrated in any FN SCAR weapon, including precision rifles.
