Has FN ever mentioned to make SCARs without the reciprocating charging handle?

That is the only thing holding me back from getting a SCAR.

No. And what's wrong with it? The ak has one as well as a few other popular rifles out there. Big deal, says I.

I had a friend tell me this week, that either they do, or plan to...nothing to back this up, but he owns one and stays up on the modern stuff.

I haven't heard anything to suggest they are. What's your hold up on the reciprocating charging handle. It can be used to bump the carrier forward as a forward assist in a dirty weapon, and there's plenty of aftermarket options out there that allow it to clear optics better than the factory part.

FNAC:

Non reciprocating charging handle, with ambidextrous control and forward assist capability
Sadly, I don't believe this will ever be made as a production piece due to the cancellation of the ICC.

I would get a SCAR if they ever got rid of that horrible buttstock and not just add an AR stock which seems to be the worlds answer to tacticool.

While the hinge itself could be upgraded, the stock itself is awesome....

It looks like midget foot.

The SCAR is awesome all around. The goofy stock is one of the many things that makes it such a great rifle.

There is a non-reciprocating kit for the SCAR, but it would be foolish to bother. There's also lowers coming out that use SR25/DPMS mags.
