I saw this over on Soldier Systems Daily - An Industry Daily and Tactical Gear News Blog (I am, in no way, affiliated with the blog or the company that produced this dvd. I just thought someone might be interested in it here.)

New FN SCAR Video From Panteao

Columbia, SC, March 20, 2014 – Panteao Productions introduces a new DVD from Matt Jacques on the FN SCAR family of weapons. The Special Operations Forces Combat Assault Rifle (SCAR) is a modular rifle made by FN Herstal (FNH) for the United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM). Designed during the SCAR competition with the aim to replace the M4 Carbine, there is much still not known about the FN SCAR Family of Weapons. In this video, Matt Jacques dispels the myths and walks you through the performance and contract requirements, comparisons between the SCAR-L (Light), SCAR-H (Heavy), MK20, PDW, and their nomenclature, disassembly and reassembly, maintenance, configurations and accessories.


Matt is a retired police officer and a Marine Corps veteran. He served with two Virginia law enforcement agencies as well as a Special Deputy of the U. S. Marshal Capital Area Fugitive Task Force for the Washington D.C area. After his retirement, Matt worked as the Senior Manager of Assault Weapons for FNH USA. He managed the FN SPR Precision Rifle program; FN Belt fed Weapons section and the SCAR program. Matt was tasked with the user evaluations and teaching the New Equipment Training (NET) for SOCOM and the SCAR family of weapons. Matt left FNH USA in 2006 and returned to training Law Enforcement, this time within the ranks of the Federal Law Enforcement community within the Washington DC area. Today Matt trains both law enforcement personnel and civilians under his company, Victory First.


Whether you have shot a SCAR in the military, own one personally, or are considering adding one to your collection, this is a must have video.

Feature is available for streaming now on Panteao's website. I've been waiting for this release since the original announcement and while I wouldn't say I am disappointed with the video, it didn't include near as much in depth information as I was hoping for. This DVD is more of a general overview of the weapon and geared towards someone who has just bought the rifle or never shot one before.

Would have preferred much more "behind the scenes" details on the development process and contract requirements that are mentioned throughout but never discussed in any detail. I'm left wanting more.. but I guess that's what the SCAR armorers course is for. The video is definitely still worth a watch. If nothing else for the several "wink wink, nod nod's" dropped when highlighting certain things that many of us have been patiently waiting for.

Overall I'm glad Panteao Productions and Matt Jacques took the time to produce this video and I would love to see more from them in the future.
