    I wish FN offered factory 10" CQC barrels. It's true that I would prefer a factory option.

    That being said, my Nefarious Arms modified 10" CQC barrel has 2313 rounds through it without issue (other than having to open the gas port insert for proper functioning). It will likely have another 1500 through it by year's end.

    As to the other arguements about spare parts, etc.; they will come. How many spares or other options were available when the Colt AR15/SP1 hit the market in the 60's? A different gun market to be sure, but a valid comparison none-the-less.

    I'm SBR'ing mine. I'm thinking 12" would sit right around ideal.

    SCAR CQC Barrel

    Well I took this off the Hi-Desert Dog site, anyone have any info on this? any news at SHOT.Looks promising?

    New Hi-desertdog complete drop in replacement barrel for the Scar 16. These are 556 nato chamber with 1in7 twist and are hard chrome lined. These are built from hand picked blanks with precision cut 556 nato chamber and then hard chrome lined chamber and bore. We made these a quality product with the chrome lined bore etc because they have to be good enough to use on our own Scar carbines. These shoot well under 1" all day, even in the 10" CQC/SBR version. Comes with 1/2x28 threaded muzzle. The barrel body and all threads are concentric to bore for superior accuracy and of course reliable silencer use. Barrel extension is installed and headspaced to 556 nato. Gas block installed and has Picatinny rail top for folding front sights.

    I believe that I would still prefer to have a competent conversion done to my existing barrel (assuming we won't be getting our hands on a factory CQB tube), though the jury still seems to be out on who can be trusted with this kind of work at the moment.

    scar match barrels

    I shoot National Match and have been to Camp Perry a couple times. I would like to see a stainless match barrel. I think this would be a cool niche market. The scar is a issue rifle i wonder if it would qualify for matches?

    Realize this is borderline necropost, but figured a quick update was in order since this thread had popped back up.

    I hit the 6K round mark a few weeks back on my chopped 16S. Still runs like a champ. I have had exactly one malfunction with this carbine. 99% of shooting has been with the Gemtech G5 mounted.

    FNH Factory short barrels...

    Friends,

    For what it's worth....

    I've been in communication with a FNH USA regional sales manager and he assures me that factory SCAR short barrels will be available for sale this year in 5.56 and 7.62. He also tells me that FNH will sell complete SBRs to civilians at a later date.

    I'm hoping this is true, but I tend to believe him.

    That would be great timing for me as I am currently in the market for a SCAR and would like to eventually SBR it. FNH selling SBR's commercially to citizens would cut out the "SBRing/barrel cutting" portion of the process out for me. Plus as many others have mentioned...I'd feel more comfortable with FNH providing the appropriate factory parts rather than having a gunsmith chopping it.

    Yog..any updates from your FNH contact? Thanks, Lee

    Lee,

    Here's the latest from Mark H. at FNH-USA.

    Sorry, but I can't get the details of the barrel lengths/part numbers to algn correctly, but you get the idea.

    Subject: RE: SCAR stuff...

    We are expecting the short barrels any day. The barrels are made and are waiting for some parts for final assembly.

    There is currently no discussion of us releasing a factory short barrel rifle. We would love to offer it, but we are not able to at this time, as the SCAR rifles are imported from Belgium.

    Please see below for more information on the SCAR barrels:


    Please spread the word that the SCAR short barrels are coming. This is a good time for everyone (end user customers) to get Form 1s completed so they can take advantage of the short barrels when they are delivered in a few months. Dealers will need this information to assist their customers in completing Form 1s.

    FNH USA is pleased to announce that complete “CQB” length barrel assemblies for the SCAR 16S and 17S will be available to the commercial market in the Fall of 2012. Proudly built in the USA by the same manufacturer who has been providing machine gun, carbine, and precision rifle barrels to our Military and Special Operations Troops for years, the FN SCAR® Complete Barrel Assemblies represent the highest order of quality and precision manufacturing in the world. Now, the same core concept of mission specific adaptability that the SCAR® system provides for USSOCOM Operators will be available to our commercial customers as well.

    The barrels are free floating, cold hammer forged, chrome lined and built to rigid Mil Spec standards. Each complete assembly includes the front sight and gas block assemblies, gas piston, 6 O’clock rail, and flash hider installed. The complete barrel assembly comes ready to be installed by the user using only a Torx® T-25 torque wrench and is ready to shoot without head-spacing.

    The application process for manufacturing a short barreled rifle may take months to complete. Thoroughly reviewing the ATF requirements and correctly filling out all paperwork will help avoid timely errors. Among the information required to apply for a permit to manufacture a short barreled rifle is the barrel length and overall length of the rifle. Reference the table below for this information:

    Product #
    Description
    New Overall Length
    Actual Barrel Length
    98802
    SCAR 16S 10" Barrel Assembly
    31.25"
    10"
    98804
    SCAR 16S 14" Barrel Assembly
    35"
    14"
    98814
    SCAR 17S 13" Barrel Assembly
    35"
    13"

    ATTENTION: Barrels less than 16” are subject to NFA regulation. All NFA Regulations apply. Please check your local and state laws before ordering. Contact your local ATF Field Office with any NFA related questions you may have, or reference the ATF via their website by clicking the following link: http://www.atf.gov/



    As always, it is good to hear from you, please let me know if I can help!

    They are not out yet. One FNH dealer was quoted that barrels would be shipping within a couple of weeks.

    When they are available, you will know because the boards will blow up with chatter about it.

    I know of two dealers that each received a single 10" 16 barrel.

    I saw one sell on GB for $2000. Insane.

    I suspect FN will follow their standard MO and trickle them out.
