Well, personally, I do NOT know about he bbls. This is because Templar, who posted a thread in this forum, recently took the SCAR armorers course at FN, and his opening post said that FN was "not including the military bbs on the 16S", or something along those lines.
However, we do not know if this means the QUICK DETACH only, OR if this means the CHF/high round count portion of the bbl.
One would HOPE that FN still maintained the quality CHF bbl on the Civvi 16S SCAR, but one tends to THINK that they might not have. ???
One member however, has also posted that he actually called FN, and an FN Rep informed him that we WERE getting the quality bbls.
Who knows at this point. I have asked several dealers who have them IN STOCK, and they can't even tell me.
We need someone IN THE KNOW.
I have noticed that a number of guys who most likely know, will not answer the question online. I just don't know, and I sincerely hope that FN maintained the quality CHF bbl. It's looking like we might not have gotten the Quick Detach bbl though. However, I cannot be 100% certain about that though.
