I don't know how you brace your hand on the magazine of a rifle, but I have my thumb down or forward and not thumbs up. That's why I like the ACR better than the SCAR, the ACR doesn't have reciprocating charging handle

So they're buying P90s, F2000s and Scars. Why not just open an FN factory in the country.

Got a translation for why other guns failed? I could basically make out one had light primer strikes.

It'll be funny if they got other FN stuff like the handguns and shotguns. They already got the MG made by FN

I didn't know they made earlier models with a raised front base. I thought only the 557 and its variants had that.

Although to be fair it could be the 552 and I simply stuffed the identification. The only difference I can think of between the two is the 552 is NV ready.

No, it isn't a 552/552 variant, not by the raised front base.

Here's a pic of a SCAR-L fitted with a 552.

As you can see, it fits flush over the rail.

But look at the front base of the one in Markost's pic.

Notice how it sits raised above the rail rather than fitting flush over it like in the previous pic.

Must be a recent redesign, then. I image Googled the 552 and only one pic in 10 pages of results (excluding non-552 results) had the raised front base.
