JLS is the company that first ever brought an affordable SCAR on the market. The gun is modelled after the first generation SCAR rifle with the 3 position stock.
The body is made up of plastic with some metal on it like the rails, sights, flash hider and trigger. The rear stock is adjustable and does fold/lock snuggly into place. The magazine locks tightly into the magwell with no wobble. The upper receiver is polymer as well, that leads to a dramatic reduction of its weight compared to other models. The magazine release, fire selector and charging hanlde are ambidextrous. The package includes a Gripod, that acts as a vertical grip, but can be deployed as a bipod as well.
The gearbox is metal and a Version 2 type like any other SCAR rifle. It has 6mm metal bearing bushings inside with one nylon bushing on the spur gear. Its long motor is Super Torque type that helps the system run smoothly. Its 33 FPS velocity makes it ideal for indoors and outdoors games. The provided metal magazine holds 300 rounds of 6mm plastic BBs. The Stick type battery is stored inside the handguard.
The package includes the SCAR rifle, its magazine, gripod, battery and charger.
The FN SCAR-L (Mk 16) is loosely based on their older FNC assault rifle. The first SCAR prototypes were in fact built on FNC lower receivers. The upper receiver has been redesigned externally to be modular, allowing the user to mount optics and various other accessories easily to the weapon, to tailor it to suit the specific needs of each mission. The bolt handle can be switched from one side to another depending on the user preference, and all controls are ambidextrous. Being a gas piston operated rifle, it is less prone to overheating and fouling than the AR-15 type weapons family, which direct the hot gases into the action via a gas tube.
The SCAR-L will replace the M4A1 Carbine, Mk 18 CQBR and Mk12 SPR models currently in special forces (SOCOM) service. With 90% of the parts in common between the three SCAR-L variants, it can be adapted to all of these roles with ease. The short and medium variants have barrels just shy of 10 and 14 inches (253 mm and 351 mm respectively), while the long variant reaches to 18" (457 mm). The standard and sniper variants of the SCAR-H will replace the M14-based rifles (such as the EBR) and the Mk 11 (SR-25), and creates new possibilities with the short CQB-model.
