75th Rangers will take SCAR to war!

75th Rangers will take SCAR to war!

By Matthew Cox - Staff writer
Posted : Tuesday May 12, 2009 11:01:33 EDT

About 600 members of the 75th Ranger Regiment will soon take the Special Operations Combat Assault Rifle into battle.

The 600 SCARs are the first of 1,800 that U.S. Special Operations Command began fielding in early April, SOCom spokeswoman Air Force Maj. Denise Boyd told Army Times.

SOCom chose the SCAR system which consists of the 5.56mm MK16 and the 7.62mm MK17 to replace weapons including the 5.56mm M4A1 carbine, made by Colt Defense LLC.

Switching battle rifles during a shooting war didn't work well last time.

I hope these guys have better luck than we had.
