Media Day: FightLite’s SCR ‘Raider’ Pistol – SHOT Show 2019

The SCR Raider is an AR pistol with a unique grip.

FightLite’s SCR Raider pistol isn’t new this year, but True Pearce did get to shoot it at the range day during SHOT Show. It’s an AR pistol available in 5.56 or 300 BLK. You can mount any AR upper and then use their proprietary bolt with the lower. The buffer tube is replaced with a recoil system that angles downward into the handle. It features FightLite’s RipBrake to help with muzzle control. It’s 22″ overall length, it’s available to purchase now, and the MSRP is $865.

The recoil spring goes down into the grip.

The 22″ gun comes in 5.56 and 300 BLK and takes standard AR mags.

    I can’t wait to own the 300blk out. This reminds me of something from
    mad Max or the Road Warriors. I want two. One to keep in my gun room and one for the Truck. Bad ass design. Love it

    What’s all the problems? If you like it, buy it. Don’t like it? Don’t buy it.
    It’s neat, but me? I’m sticking with my Draco.

    truck gun …. define that term for me please….. what state allows anyone to cruse around with a 5.56 cal. loaded weapon behind or under the seat of your truck….I assume pick-up…..with I assume a 20 -30 rnd. mag…. I live in md. and if you got pulled over after the bar threw you out….the troopers would take possession and your evening would be a mess……just wondering is all….the weapon is stupid and waste – ful and dangerous, in your truck, car, apt., bed room…in your face ATF….ITS MINE AND YOU CANT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT….if you believe that I refer you too BUMP – STOCK. IM DONE COMMENTING….

      Do You may live in MD because of work. If so, then move when you retire. There are many states where one can carry a loaded “truck gun”. In fact there is a state where you can conceal carry without a permit, you can carry any knife you want, including a switch blade Daggers and can buy firearms in the White sheet. Now Google “firearms friendly states” and you will know the answer

      Actually a weapon such as this in my state is considered a “handgun”, since it has a barrel under 16″ and no stock, and therefore can not only be carried loaded inside a vehicle, but can be carried with a fully loaded 30 round mag and completely concealed as long as the carrier has a CCW issued by the state of Washington or another state with reciprocity. I personally prefer the SIG “Rattler” “handgun”, since it not only comes in the “rifle” round of .300 Blackout, but also with the collapsible “arm brace” (obviously not a collapsible stock ;). So if I’m pulled over for any reason and the weapon is discovered, as long as no other laws have been broken I simply show the officer my CCW and he hands me back my “pistol” and sends me on my way. Rifle range and power in a very compact and concealable package!

    I just want to blame companies for making “gadgets” that may not seem conventional or appropriate to societies mainstream ideas for firearms that will be our demise because ATF and our masters do not like them. The reason the US Constitution is now defunct is because of ALL the gunowners and manufacturers in the USA. I am not buying anymore firearms and I propose we all have our brains reprogramed to fit one single mold so we are “normal”. The ATF and government writes the rules for the slaves and even if the rules are followed that is not good enough. When they went after Weaver and entrapped him they were charging him following the letter of the rules right? I actually do not recall being there when he or the informant sawed off the shotguns that may or may not have been what 1/4 to 1/2 inches too short but the government was following the exact rules right? Keep poking the bear and he will wake up? Keep poking the bear and maybe we will wake up. Now I have to get the hell out of here and file some serial numbers off, cut some barrels and then ship some illegal firearms to Mexican Cartels. Can anyone help me lift the crates over the southern walls?

    Whaddya mean “What is it for?”?! It’s for repelling privateers when they try to board you, duh…

  • nate February 7, 2019, 7:24 pm

    Truck gun/ or bike gun.

    I think the industry will continue to push the envelope until it implodes. Many of these so-called innovations are not even practical and only serve to feed the cash monster. But, what they really do, is to keep the ever-watchful eye of the BATF staring down on us like a bug under the microscope. I like gadgets as much as anyone, but are they necessary? AR pistols of any sort are gadgets. I’m sure whoever made the first one was only trying to defeat the unconstitutional ATF rules on SBRs. Same goes for shockwave type shotguns. Nothing more than a sawed-off shotgun, but uses lawyer twisted language to defeat the BATF. We now have an abundance of Rambo wannabes telling us the values of the AR in home defense. Unless you live in some remote area, that is ludicrous, but it sells ARs. The Shockwave is more practical and with a common sense selection of ammo, maybe you won’t injure a neighbor. Again, gadgets. The Shockwave won’t do anything that can’t be done with a legally shortened old 870. Since I supplement my income with firearms sales, I really love new gadgets, but which will be the one that finally spells doom for the industry?

    The reason why we have guns like this is for your safety. If we the government were to let you have guns with all the evil features on them, then naturally you the people would all become evil, and then commit crimes. Our next big change to all firearms will be the addiction of a flower holder. How can one commit a violent crime when they have a flower brightening their day? That’s all for now folks. Remember California and New York always know what’s best for you!

    Why not 9mm?

    • Area 52 February 7, 2019, 8:54 pm

      What use will a 9 mm be in that configuration? Better off with a Glock SIg, CZ Etc in other words a practical pistol, not a ninja toy like the one depicted here.

  • Area 52 February 7, 2019, 3:45 pm

    I don’t see the point. It’s impractical, awkward to aim, By the time you add up the muzzle device and optics you could get a good AR 15 with a folding stock. What good are the optics going to do without a stock or at least a pistol grip? If you want something like this, look into a a Sig Brace pistol carbine or just get a legal SBR. In other words get something with a stock on it. The sound must be deafening.

    • Dr Motown February 7, 2019, 8:00 am

      Just put your own “full-length stock” on your lower and your problem is solved….the gun as configured is obviously not meant for “hunting” but more for personal defense

      • Retrocon February 7, 2019, 6:48 pm

        “Full length arm brace”


        At this point, why are SBRs still NFA?

        Oh, everyone seems to mis the point of this “pistol…” it’s for boarding parties.

    • Rob February 7, 2019, 8:48 am

      That was what this came from. They have an AR with a Monte Carlo type stock

    • al February 7, 2019, 10:57 am

      The 300 Blackout is just as good a ‘hunting’ round in this configuration.

  • GotUR6 February 7, 2019, 7:53 am

    I don’t get it… and for $865? Even if that’s retail that means it’s going to sell for at least the low $700’s. Why not just a regular AR pistol? The bird’s head grip sticks out almost as much as the tube on an AR and the pistol grip of an AR is going to make it much more controllable than the birds head. What am I missing here??

  • Frank S. February 7, 2019, 6:47 am

    A full length stock makes it a SBR or “any other weapon”, which would be illegal or require a tax stamp due to short overall length (I may be wrong on the “any other weapon” classification). As is it is classified as a pistol, therefore legal an no tax stamp required.

  • Connie February 7, 2019, 2:49 am

    After seeing it in action, that might not be a bad truck gun…
