Can you provide details / sources concerning your information on the Navy "operator" incident involving SCARs catastrophically failing and killing two Navy SEALs (I am assuming your use of the term "operator" implied team guys). I just talked to a friend of mine in the teams (ST5) and he said they were using SCARs as of today. I also just called a friend over at FNH and he said he hadn't heard anything of the sort?
I figured this would also make news if the US Navy banned the use of SCARs - surely FNH would have something on their website.
Did this just happen - today? Let us know.
Also, I think many consider the SCAR to be an advanced piston driven iteration of the Eugene Stoner rifle...thus, I think this is a fitting location.
