I cant beleive no one has said anything about this yet. According to them they had the 1st and only semi version out there so far. They gave it high marks but really didn't go to far in to it. Just alot of shots of them shooting
it. At least we can see a little light at the end of the tunnel now if they got a semi version for testing.

I bet that will be the only one on the market. it really stinks when manufactures care so little about the ones that really are paying for them to develop new weapons. we that tax payers are the ones behind it and also we are the ones speaking up for our soldiers safety to get rid of the weak 5.56 a4 m-16 rifle. if it wasn't for our complaints Colt would be the only gun manufacture in America.

it took less time to get the p51 mustang from paper to out the hanger door 171 then it is taking for FN get the civilian model on the street.

FN you want a bigger piece of the governments weapons pie let the civilians get there hands on the SCAR and we will brag to our representatives how much better a weapon it is then the a4

Ironically, it's FN that manufactures the M-16 for the military, colt only has the M-4 contract. So you can't really brag up the SCAR over the M-16 without pissing off FN. :lol:

AND... I heard they'll be gearing up for M4s in the event the military wants to stay with that platform.

FN can't loose! :?

False.

Colt has never not manufactured M16s for the military.
The marines have M16's made be FN, not sure about the other branches though.
