|New SCAR®-H PR Precision Rifle, here equipped with add-on day scope, bipod and 10-round steel magazine|
October 12, 2011
In conjunction with the 2011 MILIPOL Trade Exhibition being held from 18 through to 21 October in Paris, France, FN Herstal is pleased to introduce the new semi-automatic SCAR®-H PR precision rifle.
Derived from the innovative FN SCAR® weapon system, the new SCAR®-H PR precision rifle is a tailored design for long-range precision fire applications while also providing capability to fight close in. The SCAR®-H PR features a 20" heavy barrel and a two-stage trigger module (Match type) allowing high accuracy. The folding buttstock and the cheek rest can be adjusted, respectively in length and in height, without tools. The operator can therefore optimize the rifle to his requirements (such as body size and body armor).
The iron sights have range settings up to a distance of 600m. The precision rifle also features an extended top MIL-STD 1913 rail that can accept the in-line assembly of night and day sights for longer ranges.
The SCAR®-H PR can fire 7.62x51mm NATO ammunition from either 10- or 20-round steel magazine.
Commonality of training and components throughout SCAR® family significantly simplifies, and reduces costs for, operator training and maintenance.
