Since everything else seems to fold on it, needs a para style cocking handle.

maybe its just me, but that thing looks REALLY heavy

Heavy, ugly, etc, I don't give a dizzam! I'm hoping they would make a civilian version of it. I think it would sell way more than the FS2000. Would any one agree?

I handled the SCAR-H .308 at the SHOT Show (the 11" barrel version) and it barely weighed 8 lbs., very light for a .308.

My FAL para weighs in at 8.3 pounds. And it doesn't even have lightening cuts or anything like that. And that's with a 16.25 inch barrel

With lightening cuts and other lightweight parts, I bet I could get the FAL to weigh in at 7-7.5 pounds.

I'd take that over this unproven SCAR anyday.

Well, the SCAR is basically a heavily modified FNC, and from my understanding they didn't change the internal mechanical parts much, so reliability shouldn't be much of an issue.

BTW, can you mount a 40mm grenade launcher, PEQ-2A (IR aiming laser/spotlight), ACOG, or CCO on the FAL without adding anything to it? And how fast can you change the barrel length?

I'm not sure I really see the need for the folding stock, but I guess SOCOM wanted it. Collapsable would be plenty good enough for me, and probably savce a little wieght in the process.

If they offered a civvie version of the SCAR-H, I would hardly even be considering a FAL right now. The SCAR is basically the same in operation, but more modular and ergonomic, esp for a lefty.

Again, being a lefty FAL owner, I've never had an issue with its function.

The SCAR is...interesting. If offered a civilian version, I'd very much like to replace the folding/collapsing stock with a fixed one if possible.

Other than that, and the the fact that its looks are a little...crude...I'd be very intersted in it.

I think the quick-change barrel is much handier for a civilian, who only wants to own one rifle, than for a serviceman who's probably not going to carry mulitple barrels with him. (Make an armorer's life easier, though...)

Well, it is a Special Ops rifle. The flexibility of an easy to change barrel makes even more sense for them. It might also make sense, on a unit-wide scale, for regular line units. A longer barrel would be much more useful in Afghanistan, with more open terrain and longer ranges, with the shorter barrels more suited to environments such as Iraq, where most of the fighting is done in urban areas at much shorter ranges. Definitely cheaper than buying new rifles for whole units.
