Even though I’ve been a little out of the game, I’m still buying stuff to further suit my tastes.
Once of my latest acquisitions is a set of these:
Yes… that is a set of the now discontinued TangoDown FN SCAR Extended Side Rails (FNS-ESR).
Installation was super simple – this is a photo taken from a quick test fit immediately after ripping open the parcel that they came in.
To my surprise, there was absolutely no fitting required. Even better than I had expected from looking at photos of real SCAR side rails and comparing those to my own TMk17!
The TangoDown FNS-ESR do not include fasteners, as these were designed to be compatible with the original FN hardware. No problem – makes my life easier to be able to keep using the Marui fasteners instead.
All holes in the receiver lined up just right – not overly tight, nor any wiggle. In fact, the FNS-ESR are quite possibly a better fit than the plastic factory-original side rails that come on the Marui.
(Please do excuse the potato camera photos – in my excitement to share this, I took these photos with the nearest digital camera I could find.)
(Recently purchased updates to my TM MK17 SCAR-H are the functional FMA LA-5C, and GG&G 30mm B-Comp Mount with piggy-backed Vector Optics red dot sight.)
