The Baby SCAR! FN’s SCAR 15P — SHOT Show 2023

FN’s new SCAR 15P is a commercial version of the SCAR SC.

FN’s ever-popular SCAR now comes in a commercial version of the pistol-sized SCAR SC designed for law enforcement and military use.

The smallest and most compact of the SCAR lineup, the SCAR 15P is a pistol without a brace but includes all the SCAR features.

The non-reciprocating charging handle can be used as a hand stop.

The SCAR 15P uses a short-stroke gas piston design to cycle the action. SCARs are famous for their non-reciprocating charging handles, and this one comes with one long and one short handle.

The long one can act as a hand stop to help keep your forward hand back from the muzzle and you can attach it to either side.

In fact, all the controls are completely ambidextrous out of the box and will be familiar to AR-15 users.

    “Scars are famous for their non-reciprocating charging handles”.

    Ha. Is that humor? Until VERY recently, that was a common complaint about SCARs. Their CH reciprocated.

    Already had one over 20 years ago. What was that called again🤔…. Oh yeah; OA93.

    Great little nonsensical gun but I got over it.

    What would be the ballistics of the .223 out of a 7.5″ barrel?

    • Don from CT February 16, 2023, 2:19 pm

      Loud and fiery.

      Best used with a deGroat flash enhancer.

    “If you hurry, you could register this as an SBR and use it with a brace or stock without paying for the tax stamp.”
    No. No. No! Why on earth would you encourage this? So wrong, really. The exact opposite message we should be sending.

      Right?! If you hurry you could be put on the “to later be confiscated” list. Yay.

        Also incorrect. You are committing a felony if you weren’t in possession of the braced pistol on the effective date. Jan . . something or other.
