VariantFollowing the introduction of the FN SCAR-H PR precision rifle late 2011, Belgium-based small arms manufacturer FN Herstal will unveil the tactical variant at the international Eurosatory trade show on 11-15 June 2012, in Paris.

The distinctive feature of the new FN SCAR-H TPR (for Tactical Precision Rifle) is a non-foldable sniper-type buttstock adjustable in length (ten positions) and height (eight positions) to accommodate operator’s body armor, web gear and head position when using iron or optical sights. In addition, the buttstock is fitted with a lower MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail for add-on monopod.

The new FN SCAR-H TPR offers the same performances and benefits than the FN SCAR-H PR model. Both are lightweight, yet durable, and guarantee rapid and accurate fire at long and close ranges. They both come standard with extended upper, lower and lateral MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rails, a steel magazine (ten or 20-round capacity), and a multi-position fire selector (either safe and semi-auto or safe, semi-auto and full auto).
