    FN SCAR trigger...

    Ok I like everything about the SCAR except it's horribly heavy trigger. The one I tried had a trigger in the 8 pound range. I understand it is a "military weapon" but GOOD GRIEF, none of my M16s ever had a trigger this heavy.

    I looked over the lower and the dimensions appear that it will NOT accept aftermarket AR parts. So I wonder how long before someone comes out with an aftermarket trigger?

    I really don't like the SCAR. For me the XCR is a much better rifle, and the FAL trumps them all.

    Sorry... was this thread about the XCR or the FAL?

    Back to the original subject and @IPSC_GUY, I cannot help but wonder if the trigger will lighten a bit over time and with increasing round count as the the trigger smooths itself out a bit. I handled a friend's FN-SCAR just a few days ago and we too were commenting on the heavy trigger.

    I can't comment on the civilian SCAR triggers, but all the mil versions I dealt with were acceptable.

    As accurate as needed, as fast as possible, as many times as it takes.

    Wow, thanks for the insight!

    I don't know if it varies from sample to sample, but the SCAR I played around with had an acceptable trigger for what the weapon is to me and that is a GP carbine. It wasn't great by any means, certainly not fit for an SPR roll, but it was nicer than the Colt 6920 I handled immediately after. I think there would be a good market for a modular drop in trigger in the future given FN produces and sells more of these weapons.

    I haven't shot the civi SCAR, but I did shoot a select fire model earlier this year when a rep was showing it off.

    I didn't think the trigger was bad from what I recall. About on par with a mil grade AR15 trigger.

    Predictable.....

    As far as the trigger on the SCAR is concerned, I too wasn't thrilled with the trigger action straight out of the box. However, after 300-400 rounds it seems to feel better. It's nowhere near a tuned trigger, but it does now seem to be smoother than some of the factory triggers on some of my other ARs. It's noticably smoother than the factory trigger on my 6920.
