The MoD announced that about 75,000 pistols will be ordered from Austrian manufacturer Glock, to replace the antiquated MAC-50 and the PAMAS G1, a modified version of the Beretta 92F, produced at Saint-Étienne by the Manufacture d'Armes de Saint-Étienne (MAS), which also produced the FAMAS.

In today's édition of Le Parisien, general news section, the article also mentions the delivery, this year, of the long awaited sniper rifle SCAR.

The SCAR is a gas system used predominantly on assault rifles and some DMR type rifles ,arguably an expensive HK416 , probably reserved for SF operators in France ?

Below a picture of the future precision rifle that will replace the bolt action FR-F2. The generic term in French is Fusil de précision semi-automatique (FPSA). It will be produced by a consortium of companies, in particular Belgian firm FN Herstal. It was discussed on this board a while back that the HK-417 seemed to be the equipment of choice, but we were proved wrong.
