The Dboys SCAR CQC is one of the most flexible AEG on the market and has a wide range of features that set it apart. The lower receiver is similar in dimensions to the M4/M16 and is constructed from heavy duty polymers; the magazine release, selector lever, bolt release are in the same position and there is a M16 style pistol grip.
Although it is designed to feel and have many of the same controls as the M4/M16 series it improves upon them in many ways. The upper receiver, for example, is now one piece and has an uninterrupted picatinny rail on the top of the receiver, effectively doing away with the delta ring. Dboys included two removable side rails and a removable bottom rail that can be used for mounting flashlights or numerous other accessories. The sights fold down out of the way for clear vision through an optic system.
Like many other AEGs the SCAR has a functional bolt release/stop that allows the user to adjust the hop-up without holding back the charging handle. The butt stock is side folding retractable with six positions and an adjustable cheek rest. When folded the stock locks onto the shell deflector but does not get in the way of the ejection port/hop-up or the trigger.
The Dboys SCAR, like any other SCAR model out there, utilizes a Version 2 Gearbox. It comes preupgraded with polycarbonate piston, metal bushings, etc, etc. The low resistance wiring helps to work flawlessly even at high speed or high power set ups.
The Special Operations Forces Combat Assault Rifle (SCAR) is a modular rifle made by FN Herstal (FNH) for the United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM) to satisfy the requirements of the SCAR competition. This family of rifles consist of two main types. The SCAR-L, for "light", is chambered in the 5.56?45mm NATO cartridge and the SCAR-H, for "heavy", fires 7.62?51mm NATO. Both are available in Long Barrel and Close Quarters Combat variants.
The FN SCAR systems completed low rate initial production testing in June 2007. After some delays, the first rifles began being issued to operational units in April 2009, and a battalion of the US 75th Ranger Regiment was the first large unit deployed into combat with 600 of the rifles in 2009. The US Special Operations Command has currently cancelled their purchase of the Mk 16 SCAR-L and are planning to remove the rifle from their inventory by 2013. However, they will purchase the Mk 17 SCAR-H version, and also plan to purchase 5.56 mm conversion kits for the Mk 17, supplanting the loss of the Mk 16. The SCAR was one of the competing weapons in the Individual Carbine competition which aimed to find a replacement for the M4 Carbine.
