The SCAR-HR Precision Rifle was unveiled by the Belgian Company FN Herstal at Milipol, International State Security Exhibition in 2011.
     

In 2011, at the International State Security Exhibition, Milipol, Belgium-based small arms manufacturer FN Herstal has introduced a new member of the SCAR assault rifle family, the semi-automatic SCAR®-H PR precision rifle.

Derived from the innovative FN SCAR® weapon system, the new SCAR®-H PR precision rifle is a tailored design for long-range precision fire applications while also providing capability to fight close in. The SCAR®-H PR features a 20" heavy barrel and a two-stage trigger module (Match type) allowing high accuracy. The folding buttstock and the cheek rest can be adjusted, respectively in length and in height, without tools. The operator can therefore optimize the rifle to his requirements (such as body size and body armor).

The iron sights have range settings up to a distance of 600m. The precision rifle also features an extended top MIL-STD 1913 rail that can accept the in-line assembly of night and day sights for longer ranges. The SCAR-H PR orders by Lithuania will be fitted with a rifle scope made by German manufacturer Schmidt & Bender.

The SCAR®-H PR can fire 7.62x51mm NATO ammunition from either 10- or 20-round steel magazine.
