    SCAR 16s Discontinued?

    Sorry if these posts are not allowed, but working for a gun shop will sometimes lead to interesting news. I was looking for a SCAR 16s for a friend through distribution channels and none of them show any active listings as if the gun is not being produced or sold to the general public. Well I call around to RSR Group, Lipsey's, and Davidson's and I'm told by reps that the gun has in fact been discontinued.

    One of my reps actually called his FN representative and was told the gun was no longer going to be offered for consumer sales, LE or Mil only. I called FN and was told to check back after the first of the year as they are still importing them in small batches, but according to other posts on here, the last of the Belgian ones should have already been sold. Has anyone else in the industry heard any news regarding the 16s? I would really hate to see these guns to go the way of the FS2000...

    Good question. Many dealers are stating such in their sales and auction ads.
    A new FDE 16 just sold for ridiculous money on GB after being advertised as discontinued.
    I was just hoping there was a delay getting the US models into production. FN does list the US 16 product codes on the website
    Hopefully we can get an accurate answer.
    I guess the 16 pistol I dream about is getting less likely now

    That's my hope as well regarding the US production delay. I'm hoping its just them updating the SKUs and such to show they are US made like they did with the 17s. But from what I'm hearing from company reps, it's not looking hopeful until I hear or see something otherwise.

    Damn, thats a bummer they are being discontinued. I would like to purchase a 16 in the future, but it sounds like they wont be around when im ready to drop that kind of cash on the firearm. Im still recouping from the 17 in July

    As I said, I'm going off what the Distributors are telling me. FN is saying it is not true if you call them, but my reps have closer ties than me to FN, so at this point I'm just waiting and watching...

    I've been perusing Gunbroker.com, prices don't seem out of line...yet. Since I already have a SCAR 16, I don't need another. Still, what a shame!
