Vltor AR Stock Adapter for the FN SCAR

Monday, October 4th, 2010

Military Morons has published a preview of a new adapter from Vltor for the FNH SCAR 16/17S that allows you to replace the factory stock with a Mil-Spec AR-style stock. On the downside, you can’t fold the AR stock with the adapter. While we feel that the FNH stock is one of the best things it has going for it, this new product from Vltor does increase the versatility of the SCAR as a platform. It also signals that industry doesn’t see the SCAR going away anytime soon and is willing to develop dedicated products for it. Look at this as a victory on the brush fire front of the SCAR WARS.

Both stocks feature removable battery storage compartments. However, it is important to note that this occurred last October and this isn’t a new action. Additionally, this is the second of three suits filed over the last year against Magpul concerning patent issues. The initial suit was from A.R.M.S. (imagine that) over their dual aperture rear sight. Then, right before SHOT Show Robinson Arms brought suit against Magpul as well as a slew of others.
