    Why would I pay more for the FNSCAR over the FNAR?

    Besides the easier disassembly of the scar, they both seem to be a quality firearm.

    Where have you found a FN AR?

    I dont believe fn is allowed to produce ar15 due to agreements with the us govt over their military supply contract. The scar is not an ar15

    That's the way I understand it too. There have been a very few FN lower receivers to slip out but they're as rare as the Magpul China Doll. And of course FN barrels are common but no complete AR, at least here in the US. (Not counting M16s).

    Thanks. Didnt know about that one. If fn ever gets oit from under the no build thing they will be a force in the ar15 market

    Didn't know about that one either. Probably not the best name choice from FN when their contract prevents them from selling an AR commercially.

    I'd be all over that SCAR if they were more reasonably priced, I'd give maybe $1,500, $2,500 is outrageous.

    I want to start a newbuild. I think an FN lower would be pretty cool. A magpul lower would be even cooler.

    If I had one I would definitely use it lol. I bet no one else at the range would have one!

    I believe it is based upon FN Automatic Rifle, thus replacing the Browning with FN, and not using the traditional AR term.

    I do t think it was m16, it was stripped at the time of purchase. It has a square as a forge marking though... I don't know if that has any relevance.
