The purpose of the weapon developed by Fabrique Nationale de Herstal (FN) at the beginning of the 21st century was to provide US Special Forces with a weapon that would rival the M4, which was then used by virtually all of SOCOM (Special Operations Command). ) was used, to be replaced. After being deployed in, among other things, The War on Terror and the related conflicts, opinions were divided. Both the MK16 (SCAR-L (Light – 5.56mm)) and the Mk17 (SCAR-H (Heavy – 7.62mm/.308)) versions were praised for their flexibility in terms of deployment options, but were also criticized for their complexity with regard to the internal mechanism and external moving parts that could get caught and disrupt the rehearsal cycle.
The shutter made entirely of aluminum gives the shooter a very realistic experience when using this replica. The replica works optimally with green gas and with a fully gas-filled magazine, approximately one magazine (30 BBs) can be emptied, after which the gas must be refilled. The upper of this replica is completely made of metal and gives a solid feeling as is the case with the RS (Real-Steel) version. The lower of this replica is made of strong polymer and also contributes well to the realistic feel of this replica.
Just like the RS version, the replica offers very flexible use on the airsoft field. A long rail at the 12 o’clock position that runs from the stock to the end of the handguard makes it possible to mount a wide range of binoculars. In addition, the rails at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock offer the option of mounting various weapon lamps, laser modules or a combination of these. Handles are also available from us in many different shapes. All in all, there are more than enough possibilities to fully personalize this replica and set it up to the different situations that an airsofter can encounter on the playing field.
