After over 125 years of existence, and nearly a century as one of the world’s leading firearms companies, FN Herstal today has grown in both size and reputation to become one of the most trusted names in defense and security equipment. Although the weapons and technologies may have changed, since the early years, the company remains committed to providing the best weapons in the world, supported by the best service capabilities.

From handguns to heavy machine guns, FN Herstal has been a world leader in small arms design and manufacture for many decades. The success of the company’s early machine gun and pistol designs laid a solid foundation upon which it has developed a series of weapons to maintain its leading position in the small arms marketplace.

FN Herstal has two offerings in the assault rifle category, the FN F2000® and the FN SCAR®. Chambered for the NATO 5.56x45mm round, the FN F2000® is of bullpup design to retain full barrel length while keeping the weapon itself extremely short. Like many of FN Herstal’s products, the FN F2000® is designed for ambidextrous operation, and can accept a number of accessories mounted on the top rail or handgrip rail. An important add-on is a 40mm grenade launcher that replaces the handgrip. The launcher has been designed so that it can be fired without the user having to move their hand from the normal rifle grip.

Designed to meet the demands of the most discerning special forces customers, the FN SCAR® assault rifle family was developed to provide variants with two calibers (the FN SCAR®-L in 5.56x45mm and FN SCAR®-H in 7.62x51mm), and with two barrel length options for each caliber. The barrels can be quickly interchanged to suit the particular needs of the operational situation, and maintain the previously established weapon zeroing. The long barrel is intended for general purpose use, while the short barrel can be fitted for close quarters combat.

Portability and adaptability were key aspects considered when designing the FN SCAR®, and the weapon has folding and adjustable buttstock, ambidextrous operation, simple field stripping, adjustable cheek piece, and rails for accepting a wide variety of sighting systems and other accessories. Flip-up mechanical sights are provided as a back-up.
