In this video, we take a look at 5 that we consider the best.

The Special Operations Forces Combat Assault Rifle (SCAR) is a gas-operated self-loading rifle with a rotating bolt and a firing rate of 625 rounds/min.

This family of rifles consist of two main types. The SCAR-L, for “light”, is chambered in the 5.56×45mm NATO cartridge and the SCAR-H, for “heavy”, fires 7.62×51mm NATO. Both are available in Long Barrel and Close Quarters Combat variants.
