FN Announces Key Upgrades to Proven FN SCAR Semi-automatic Line-up

NOW FEATURES DUAL, NON-RECIPROCATING CHARGING HANDLES AND MORE


(McLean, VA – August 31, 2021) FN America, LLC is pleased to announce that the long-awaited non-reciprocating charging handle (NRCH) upgrade is now available in all FN SCAR® semi-automatic models. FN’s new NRCH assembly features dual, ambidextrous charging handles that enable users to shoot from any position or use any grip style. The FN SCAR upgrade improves an inherently more accurate and reliable platform that, in its military configuration, has served America’s most elite fighting forces for more than a decade.
“The FN SCAR has proven itself as a leader in its class since its introduction, setting the standard for what gas-driven, semi-auto rifles should be,” said Chris Cole, Vice President, Sales & Marketing of FN America, LLC. “The complete modularity and fast-handling character of our most versatile rifle platform continues to advance. The FN SCAR 17S and 20S were already the softest shooting gas-driven .30-caliber rifles on the market and these upgrades deliver even more functionality to the SCAR platform.”
Dual, Non-Reciprocating Charging Handles
The FN SCAR becomes even more intuitive to the end user with new, non-reciprocating, dual charging handles, enabling any shooting position, grip style or optic choice. Combined with the fully-ambidextrous operating controls and adjustable buttstock, the FN SCAR instantly adapts to any shooter.
The assembly, consisting of a new charging handle sled and two ambidextrous, reversible charging handles that lock forward on bolt-close and remain static during fire, provide superior forward assist capabilities. The two charging handles, one at a 30-degree cant specifically designed to reduce interference with low-mount optics and one low-profile, are user-swappable in the field. The reduced reciprocating mass of the new bolt carrier produces less felt recoil, making a soft-shooting rifle even easier to manage.
“With the FN SCAR there’s a reason for every part, all have to work together perfectly to deliver the uncompromising accuracy, reliability and toughness this platform has earned under fire, that’s the difference between an FN SCAR and other carbines, we are held to a higher standard than most, failure is not an option for our Nation’s most elite forces, said Benjamin Voss, Product Manager for FN’s Long Guns. “With the semi-auto FN SCAR 16S, 17S and 20S, we hold the same standards of quality for these commercial variants. Adding the non-reciprocating charging handles allows SCAR to be even more adaptable, enhancing an already accurate and soft-shooting rifle. Shooting positions like urban prone, from a barrier or with a CQC-style grip are made possible and users can now run low-mount optics without interference.”
Every SCAR Tells a Story
The legendary FN SCAR series takes root in its battle-proven lineage, adapted from USSOCOM’s newest battle rifle since the M4 entered service in the 1990’s. The benchmark of reliability and versatility with its three variants, the FN SCAR 16S, SCAR 17S and SCAR 20S are capable of consistent accuracy from their cold hammer-forged and chrome-lined barrels and one-piece forged aluminum receiver, delivering precision fire with aid from its fully adjustable buttstock, low-flash gas regulator and fast-handling characteristics uncommon in similar rifle platforms.

Experience the FN SCAR’s unmatched history of military excellence and never-ending list of features, including the new, non-reciprocating charging handles online at www.fnamerica.com/scar.

The charging handle location and reciprocal cycle led to a bunch of hurt thumbs and fingers.

The FN 502 Tactical: FN’s Premiere Optics-Ready .22 LR
September 1st, 2021

THE INDUSTRY’S FIRST SLIDE-MOUNTED OPTICS-READY .22 LR TACTICAL PISTOL


(McLean, VA – September 1, 2021) FN America, LLC, the leader in optics-ready pistols, proudly introduces the company’s first-ever .22 LR pistol, the FN 502™ Tactical. It is the latest innovation in the optics-ready pistol space – the industry’s first slide-mounted red dot on a rimfire handgun. The FN 502 Tactical features an optics-mounting system inspired by the company’s patented FN Low-Profile Optics Mounting System™ and offers unmatched sighting options with co-witness sights.
“We set out to accomplish two primary goals with the FN 502 Tactical – to create a .22 LR pistol with the advanced features and superior accuracy of our current pistol line-up, and deliver a pistol designed for maximum fun on the range. We feel like we’ve met both of these objectives handily,” said Mark Cherpes, President and CEO for FN America, LLC. “When a customer shoots an FN 502 Tactical for the first time, we’ve seen nothing but pure excitement. FN’s new rimfire handgun has obvious, universal appeal, whether you’re a new shooter looking to master the basics or an advanced user expecting peak performance from FN. The new FN 502 Tactical performs on every level.”
The smooth, single-action hammer-fired pistol with its best-in-class trigger combined with its high-capacity 15-round magazine, superior ergonomics, perfect balance and ambidextrous controls, all a nod to the FN 509® family of pistols, make the FN 502 Tactical perfect for high round count training sessions.
“FN constantly studies the market to fill unmet customer needs and saw a large gap to fill with our new semi-auto rimfire handgun,” said Chris Cole, Vice President, Sales & Marketing at FN America, LLC. “Most rimfire handguns in this category are smaller, lack capacity and accuracy enablers. With the FN 502 Tactical, we applied the standout features of the FN 509 Tactical to this new rimfire to deliver a shooting experience unlike any other .22 LR handgun. With an exceptional trigger, 15-round magazine and the ability to quickly mount most micro red dots or suppressors, the FN 502 Tactical is the most capable rimfire pistol right out of the box.”
Sporting FN’s signature Tactical feature set, the pistol’s 4.6-inch barrel with recessed target-crown is threaded 1/2×28-inch pitch to accept most .22 suppressors. The FN 502 Tactical performs like a robust-style target pistol, delivering fast, accurate rounds on target with more versatility than any other rimfire on the market.
Designed for maximum fun, FN’s hammer-fired .22 LR delivers more accuracy and versatility than any other rimfire handgun. Mounting a favorite red dot optic and cycling a wide range of .22 LR ammo makes a low-cost range day a high-end experience.
The FN 502 Tactical, shipping to FN authorized retailers now, comes standard in a hard case with (1) 15-round high-capacity magazine and (1) 10-round flush-fit magazine along with the necessary plates to mount compatible miniature red dot optics. Due to its similarity in ergonomics to the FN 509, the FN 502 Tactical will fit in most FN 509 Tactical holsters.

US Army Grants NGSW Novation from General Dynamics-OTS, Inc to LoneStar Future Weapons
September 1st, 2021
Something that has flown under the radar is that the US Army has granted a novation from Next Generation Squad Weapons contender General Dynamics-OTS, makers of the Bullpup configuration guns, to Lone Star Future Weapons.

For those of you unfamiliar with the term, Novation means to transfer or substitute a new contract in place of an old one.
Upon request, I received the following statement regarding the action from Program Manager Soldier Lethality, Program Executive Office Soldier, which manages Product Manager Next Generation Weapons (PdM NGW).
“On 30 June 2021, Agreement W15QKN1991024, one of three Agreements supporting the Next Generation Squad Weapons Program for weapons and ammunition prototyping, was novated from: General Dynamics-OTS, Inc. to Lone Star Future Weapons (sic).”
An April press release form LoneStar and partner True Velocity announced a strategic partnership to leverage the two companies’ substantial expertise in R&D, precision manufacturing, quality control and production efficiency.
This is a significant event in the NGSW program. It means General Dynamics-OTS, Inc is out as the prime, along with production partner Beretta USA, and LoneStar Future Weapons along with ammunition partner True Velocity, is in. However, General Dynamics-OTS remains in an advisory role according to LTC Mark Owens (USA, Ret) who currently serves as the Chief Strategy Officer for True Velocity and Project Director at LoneStar Future Weapons whom I spoke with about the novation.
Owens said, “We are extremely excited to pursue the upcoming NGSW RFP. While General Dynamics has novated the contract to us, we will continue to work with their team to combine the best elements of a large company like GD, with the innovation and agility of Lone Star Future Weapons and True Velocity.”
Owens expanded on the significance of what they are doing, “Making something that has never existed before requires a lot of “different”. Different materials, different manufacturing processes, different weapon and ammunition geometries as well as different business relationships and constructs. Maintaining the status quo cannot provide our warfighters with compact, “fightable” weapon systems capable of defeating current and Next Generation threats. We are not different for the sake of being new. We are different in order to adapt to the rapidly changing battlefields of the future. Every piece of our weapon system componentry and ammunition combines the best of traditional technologies from battlefield proven systems with the most lethal, robust, compact and lightweight solutions available for a new, different, enhanced level of lethality.”
One of the big things for the team is that True Velocity has recently introduced commercial production of their composite ammunition in .308 WIN.

Hoping to see additional calibers in the future I asked Owens what might be in the wings and he mentioned a civilian 6.8 round for hunting. I explained that like most shooters, I don’t have any firearms which fire that caliber. He told me not to worry, that LoneStar would be introducing those as well to complement the ammo saying, “We also look forward to a commercial release of the 6.8 Rifle and ammunition for sporting purposes.” He went on to mention that they are working with industry partners to introduce firearms chambered for their 6.8 cartridge.
In addition to access to the NGSW firearm intellectual property, LoneStar is also moving forward with the GD-OTS Lightweight Medium Machine Gun design in 338 Norma Mag and is perusing the USSOCOM opportunity currently underway with SOFWERX. Owens concluded our discussion with, “In addition to the contract, IP for the NGSW R, AR, as well as for the .338 NM MG have conferred. We believe that these weapons will have an important place in both our Army and allied arsenals of the future.”
There’s a lot going on and it sounds like the NGSW novation is just the beginning for LoneStar Future Weapons and partner True Velocity.

——————————————————-
I find it odd that a number of large militaries have gotten away from bullpup weapons platforms but we could possibly be adopting one.

New Viridian Weapon Tech HS1 Infrared Hand Stop Laser


By far the most popular way to aim a rifle in complete darkness is with IR lasers in tandem with a night vision device. IR lasers give you great accuracy potential and a less complicated aiming process when you are equipped with a head-mounted night vision device. Viridian Weapon Technologies has just added the new HS1 infrared hand stop laser to their existing lineup of visible red and green rifle-mounted lasers.
Viridian Weapon Tech Adds New HS1 Infrared Hand Stop Laser to Lineup

New Viridian Weapon Tech HS1 Infrared Hand Stop Laser
Combining a traditional rail-mounted hand stop and a low-power IR laser, the HS1 Infrared model makes use of a single 1/3n battery that fits neatly within the hand stop without taking up any unnecessary space. The IR laser is activated when you grab the hand stop and depress a small button nested into its front end.
HS1 IR Specifications
  • LED Light Color: IR
  • Activation: Automatic
  • Adjustments: Windage and Elevation Adjustable
  • Constant on Battery Life: 1.5 Hours
  • Battery Type: 1/3 n
  • Mounting Options: M-LOK with Picatinny adapters avaialable
  • Range: Up to 100 yards daylight/ 2 miles night
  • Operating Temperature Range: 14°F – 140 °F
  • Warranty Length: 7-Years
  • MSRP: $249.00
Viridian Weapon Tech Adds New HS1 Infrared Hand Stop Laser to Lineup

It has been about a year since Viridian first introduced the HS1 Series of hand stop lasers and now there is an IR version available to those who have night vision devices (or maybe those who are looking for an excuse to buy one). For an IR laser, the HS1 is pretty small and compact and also has the unique benefit of being mounted closer to the bore than other types of IR laser options. The HS 1 Infrared Hand Stop Laser is available now through the Viridian Weapon Tech website for $249.00 in either FDE or Black housings.

Very smart going with a handstop and not a vertical grip

The 15 round mag is extended and it comes with a 10 round flush.
You know this follows Glock’s standard practice.
Have your competition come out with what everyone wants and then come out with a Glock model that addresses that.
Expect the Glock 44 MOS with extended mags this coming Christmas season.😡

you know we complain about glock being slow to come out with new firearms or re-releasing new models but in reality its genius. Take the 43. Release the 43, wait a little bit, release the 43x, wait a little more, release the 43x mos. if one person upgrades each time thats 3 guns they have sold with one person on one model platform

I agree. And how much heavier and
uncomfortable (or comfortable) to carry would it be?

New CZ P-10 M Micro-Compact Concealed Carry Pistol
CZ P-10 M pistol for concealed carry

CZ has just announced their newest version of the P-10 pistol, the P-10 M, which is configured as a “micro-compact” pistol marketed for concealed carry. The CZ P-10 M is imported from the factory in the Czech Republic, which released this model last year overseas. The M model of the P-10 family has a capacity of 7(+1) rounds. Interestingly, CZ opted to omit the usual external controls such as a slide stop and safety, save the trigger and magazine release. The new CZ P-10 M is also marketed as being very simple to disassemble for cleaning, just by removing the take-down pin. CZ also reduced the P-10 M’s width to one inch, which is a quarter of an inch slimmer than the rest of the P-10 series. CZ’s description of the CZ P-10 M can be read below.

CZ-USA has announced a new era in concealed carry pistols with the much anticipated micro-compact P-10 M pistol release. This gun has everything people love about CZ pistols while being engineered explicitly for flawless concealed carry.
The first thing most people notice about the P-10 M is its completely smooth appearance. There are no
controls or levers on either side of the gun other than the magazine release.
The P-10 M is also a snap to disassemble for cleaning. Remove the take-down pin from the frame, and the slide comes right off. Since self-defense situations can arise at any time or place, the P-10 M comes standard with a set of robust 3-dot sight.

CZ P-10 M SPECIFICATIONS
CZ P-10 M pistol for concealed carry

CZ-USA filled TFB in on a few more particulars that readers are sure to ask. The P-10 M pistol will ship with two seven-round single stack magazines, while extra magazines will have an MSRP of around $35. The slightly staggered single stack magazines are proprietary, so standard P-10 magazines will not fit the P-10 M and vice versa. Despite the lack of an external slide stop, that function still takes place internally after the last round has been fired. Once a new magazine has been inserted, the shooter will need to pull the slide rearward and release it to allow the recoil spring to return the slide into battery (aka the slingshot method).
The new CZ P-10 M is listed at $499 on CZ-USA’s website.

Scam Ammo Warning: Will the Real For Scott Munitions Please Stand Up?
Scam ammo dealers are pretty rampant on social media sites like Facebook and Instagram but it is just a bit harder to set up a scam ammo retailer on a proper website. However, fortscottmunitions.org is one such site that has cropped up that creates a pretty convincing website but is in fact 100% a scam and Fort Scott Munitions is trying their best to warn customers away from the domain.

Scam Ammo Warning: Will the Real For Scott Munitions Please Stand Up?


It has come to our attention there is a fake website impersonating Fort Scott Munitions. We are currently looking into getting the website taken down.
In the meantime, DO NOT purchase from or communicate with fortscottmunitions.ORG (we are .com, the fake website is .org).
DO NOT respond to emails from [email protected] (again, we are .com, they are .org).
We are in no way affiliated with them.
If you have done business with this company thinking it was us, or if they have reached out to you, please let us know at [email protected]fortscottmunitions.com.
Thank you!
Scam Ammo Warning: Will the Real For Scott Munitions Please Stand Up?


I wrote an article a while back that goes into detail about how to spot scam ammo dealers online but it is much harder in this particular case since the website will allow you to go through the process of purchasing items and even has ammunition priced where you’d expect it to be for the times we are in. The scam ammo website is currently stealing imagery, pricing, and a bunch of other credible data from the real website so you should use extra caution when purchasing products from Fort Scott Munitions. One thing that I did notice that separates the fake website from the real website is the absence of any social media links (the real site has all of Fort Scott Munitions’ socials on the page). Even basic security items like an SSL certificate are present on the scam website.

Please be careful when purchasing anything online especially if it looks too good to be true! I hope Fort Scott Munitions can get the scam website taken down in short order to limit the impact it has on any unsuspecting customers.

New Micro Scout Light Pro – SureFire’s Latest Weaponlight


New Micro Scout Light Pro - SureFire's Latest Weaponlight

Made from the same durable materials and using the same reliable hardware found on the rest of SureFire’s lineup, the new Micro Scout Light Pro is Surfire’s smallest, most compact, and lightweight weapon light ever brought to the market. Weighing in at just 2.08 ounces (59 grams) and having an overall length of just under 4-inches, the new light can better conserve space and weight on your weapon platform while still providing you with close quarters illumination.

New Micro Scout Light Pro - SureFire's Latest Weaponlight

The new light has a 300-lumen output and is powered by a single micro-sized AAA rechargeable NiMH battery which is included in the package. The Micro Scout Light Pro offers a total run time on the “high” setting of 1.25 hours and features a peak beam intensity of 1,045-candela. The beam is spread by a parabolic reflector which is considered to be ideal for indoor situations or situations where you would otherwise find yourself in close contact with your targets.
New Micro Scout Light Pro - SureFire's Latest Weaponlight

The Micro Scout Light Pro is constructed from mil-spec hard-anodized (MIL-A-8625 Type II, Class 2) aluminum and also features a tempered window to give the Micro Scout Light Pro the same durability and quality that SureFire’s other weaponlights carry. The whole package carries an IPX7 liquid ingress rating so that you can be sure that the light won’t quit on you if exposed to some moisture throughout your training sessions.

TFB Review: Primary Arms SLx 1X MicroPrism Sight with ACSS Cyclops Gen 2 Reticle


TFB Review: Primary Arms SLx 1X MicroPrism Sight with ACSS Cyclops Gen 2 Reticle

Primary Arms is known for making affordable yet durable optics that work. They have set themselves apart from the competition with their ACSS reticle. Well, now they have a new SLx 1X MicroPrism with the ACSS reticle. This new MicroPrism optic is a tiny package that works like a quality red dot. Let’s take a closer look at this interesting optic.
Is A Prism Better Than A Red Dot?
For those of us with astigmatism, an etched reticle is always better than a red dot. Red dots are traditionally laser-based or recently they are LED-based. Unfortunately, both varieties of red dots still result in a starburst-looking dot for those suffering from astigmatism. The SLX 1X MicroPrism is an etched reticle so even when you turn on the red illumination, the reticle remains clean and crisp.
The reticle is another boon to a prismatic optic. You can etch any reticle you want. This is more difficult for an LED or laser-based red dot. Especially if your reticle has fine detail. Some claim prismatic optics have a better light transmission than other optics. This is due to the use of prisms and the short overall length of the optic. Oh and let’s not forget the biggest advantage to an etched reticle – no need for power. While the SLx 1X does have reticle illumination, it does not need it. The sight will continue to function even without a battery. Now granted the reticle will not do well at night and that is why there is illumination, or you throw enough light downrange to create contrast with your target and the etched reticle.
In the past, prismatic optics did not allow the use of magnifiers or backup irons but the new Primary Arms SLX 1X MicroPrism can.
The SLx® 1x MicroPrism is an all-new advanced optical system designed from the ground up in an ultra-compact housing, allowing use of backup iron sights and magnifiers. The 1x MicroPrism is part of our SLx optics line. SLx optics built our reputation for innovation, reliability, and value. All SLx optics undergo rigorous field-testing during development to best serve you in any environment. In this case, we put the optic through over 7,000 rounds of .308 through a SCAR 17s.

I am not sure why but Primary Arms included cantilever risers that position the SLx 1X further back. The tallest setup will clear most rear iron sights on an AR platform.




Surprisingly, the objective lens is not as big as the housing.

Below is the SLx 1X MicroPrism in its tallest configuration. While it clears the rear sight of my Daewoo DR200, this setup does looks a bit odd. I rather have a straight riser, I do not see the need to have the cantilever at all other than the help bring the SLx 1X Cyclops Gen 2 closer to the shooter’s eye.


This might be partially due to this effect I noticed with the SLx 1X. If your eye is close to the ocular side of the optic, everything is fine.

However, if you position the SLx 1X further away from your eye you can see three shadows encroach into the field of view.


The SLx 1X MicroPrism foot print is similar to that of a Trijicon ACOG. It can fit the carry handle if you use the most rearward mounting position.

If you try to slide the SLx 1X further back to use the other mounting holes in the optic, the housing gets in the way and slides up the ramped edges of the carry handle.

I decided to mount the SLx 1X on my recently acquired Zastava M90. It is chambered in 5.56 and I needed a clear optic for it. I loathe shooting with irons. RS Regulate sent me their Yugo optic rail and compatible top rail to fit the SLx 1X.

How Does The SLx 1X Look To Shoot?
Other than the weird three sided shadowing, the SLx 1X is clear and crisp. I did find myself wanting more magnification when shooting further distances like 200+ yards. But I managed with the ACSS reticle.

Final Thoughts On Primary Arms SLx 1X MicroPrism Sight
For $249.99 you are getting a great optic for a decent price. The reticle works well and most of all it is crisp and clear for my eyes. It is powered by just a 2032 lithium battery and has a battery life of 29,000 hours. The only critique I have for this optic is the 1 MOA increment adjustments for elevation and windage. I wish they had went with 1/2 or even 1/4 MOA adjustments. While this is not a precision optic, there are plenty of red dots that have sub-MOA adjustments. Why can’t this?
