Stupid question: are the barrel, bolt, lower receiver, stock, etc serialized to match the upper receiver?

The SCAR was design from the getgo to be modular, slap a barrel, upper, or trigger assembly on each other in the field. There is no purpose for serializing.

Yes, but isn't the "upper" itself the serialized component?

Firearm manufacturers are well beyond hand fitting parts today. The accuracy (tolerance holding capability) of manufacturing and QC equipment that is available today results in parts interchangeability so FN doesnt have to segregate parts in an individual SCAR.

Other manufacturers may do it today, but I believe doing so has more to do with tradition than out of necessity.

Thanks for the answer and explanation guys. I take it this means all SCAR parts are compatible with one another regardless of manufacturing date or model generations?
