FN Announces Release of FN SCAR 20S Precision Rifle

FN America, LLC is pleased to announce the release of the highly-anticipated FN SCAR® 20S precision rifle, based on the FN MK20 SSR or Sniper Support Rifle currently fielded within USSOCOM. The 7.62x51mm-chambered rifle has been purpose-built to achieve superior long-range accuracy.

“The FN SCAR® 20S is the latest addition to our battle-proven line-up of FN SCAR products and the first commercial SCAR release since we launched the 17S in 2010,” said Mark Cherpes, President and CEO for FN America, LLC. “Customers will notice that the FN SCAR 20S shares more commonalities than differences with the MK20 SSR and reaffirms our commitment to producing commercial versions of our iconic military firearms.”

The rifle achieves 1-MOA (minute of angle) accuracy to 100 yards with match-grade ammunition out of the box. The 20-inch, 1:12 twist, heavy profile barrel and barrel extension, and extended, monolithic receiver add the additional rigidity that reduces fluctuation or movement between shots while the extended receiver provides the much-needed rail space for high-powered optics. The custom-designed MK20 SSR buttstock adjusts to length of pull and comb height to customize the fit to each shooter while in the prone firing position, and the factory-installed, double-stage Geissele Super SCAR trigger achieves a 3.5-4.5-pound trigger pull.

Technical Specifications:

  • Caliber: 7.62x51mm
  • Barrel Length: 20 inches
  • Barrel Twist Rate: 1:12
  • Weight: 11.2 pounds
  • O/A Length: 40.6 – 42.5 inches
  • Operation: Short-stroke gas piston
  • Finish: Flat Dark Earth (FDE)
  • Capacity: (1) ten-round magazine; compatible with FN SCAR 17S 10- and 20-round magazines

Franklin Armory Announces BFSIII Binary Trigger for AK Platform

Firearms manufacturer, Franklin Armory, has successfully adapted the patented Generation 3 Binary Firing System™ to the AK Platform. Prototype triggers have undergone substantial field testing, and the final configuration will be placed into production soon. The BFSIII for the AK platform is slated to start shipping the first quarter of 2019. Pre-Orders for theBFSIII for AK will begin on October 19th.

Franklin Armory President, Jay Jacobson, stated, “The Franklin Armory engineering and design staff have really worked hard to create a fabulous BFSIII for AK that works in as many AK platforms as possible. Given the variety of clones out on the market, this was no small task.”

Fast on the heels of their previous release of the BFSIII for CZ Scorpion; Franklin Armory proves again to be the premier manufacturer of Binary triggers with six models currently available.

The Gen 3 Binary Firing System was released for the AR platform in August of 2016. All BFSIII triggers feature a three-mode safety selector. Mode 1 is “Safe.” Mode 2 is “Semi” for semiautomatic. And Mode 3 is “Binary” mode. In Binary mode, the firearm will discharge one round on the pull of the trigger and one round on the release of the trigger. All BFSIII models feature the ability to negate the release round in Binary mode by modulating the safety selector back to “Semi” mode or “Safe.” Additionally, all BFSIII are engineered to prevent the operator from modulating the selector to “Binary” mode while holding the trigger back in “Semi” mode.

MSRP is currently $499.99.
