Many thought the AK compatibility requirement for the SOF Combat Assault Rifle had fallen off the table. Not true. Rather, USSOCOM initially concentrated in the impending need for 5.56 and 7.62 NATO variants. Now, FN has built a 7.62×39 version of the Combat Assault Rifle to fulfil a requirement. with the CAR contract entering its second five years, you’ll start to see these models hitting the field as a reliable alternative to battlefiled pickup AKs.


Naturally, it features a different barrel, bolt, lower and AK-style magazine catch, but it also has a different gas regulator seen below.


As it utilizes AK magazines, there is no bolt hold open on the last round.

FNH USA is not only releasing a semiauto version of the M249 but also Military Collector semiauto versions of the M4 and M16A4.


These are delivered just like they are to the government, complete with KAC rail systems. They even have Serial Number markings like the issue item. Although they are semi, they will be marked ‘SAFE, SEMI, FULL’. The production models will not only be properly marked but will also have the proper ambi safety.

AUSA – FNH Introduces CSASS Contender And In Doing So Will Offer MK 20 Commercially

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014


At AUSA FNH USA is displaying their Compact Semi-Automatic Sniper System (CSASS) entry. Based on the tried and true SOF Combat Assault Rifle (SCAR) system, FN’s CSASS rifle is essentially the same package they developed for the Mk 20 Sniper Support Rifle selected by USSOCOM. FN also told me that the rifle would be available for commercial sale about a year from now and will be manufactured in the South Carolina plant. If you’ve been wanting an SSR, your chance is coming.


Mk 20 SSR specs:

-Hard-anodized monolithic aluminum receiver
-MIL-STD 1913 accessory rails at the 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock positions
-Adjustable, removable folding front and rearback-up iron sights

-Hammer-forged, chrome-lined steel
-Fully free-floating design
-The barrel can be removed and replaced by the operator to facilitate cleaning and maintenance with negligible impact on previously established zero
-Flash hider optimized for suppressed fire

-Non-folding, adjustable cheekpiece
-Length of pull adjusts without tools
-Aluminum and polymer construction

-Ambidextrous selector lever and magazine release
-Charging handle may be mounted on right or left side
-Enlarged trigger guard
-Adjustable gas regulator for use with or without suppressor to maintain felt recoil


The extended hand guard was designed to accommodate mounting of the AN/PVS-30.


The stock is adjustable for comb and length of pull.
