If you are after a good shotgun for field use, the FN SC-1 at Omaha Outdoors may be just what you need. Shotguns are often some of the most misunderstood firearms out there today. For some, a shotgun is considered the self-defense weapon of choice for those who simply don’t know how to aim with another weapon. For others, it is designated as the waterfowl weapon, the gun they go to when they need to put some good bird on the table. Despite the biases that might exist towards this platform, there are actually quite a few configurations for the modern shotgun that can help you stay on target.
Regardless of what configuration you are after, the thing most people miss out on is the reality that shotguns can actually be very accurate when built right. Built for competitive performance and able to demonstrate that high degree of accuracy, an FN Herstal SC-1 may be just the type of shotgun you need to see how accurate they can be. At Omaha Outdoors, we are proud to offer these shotguns for your consideration.
Is the FN SC-1 Right for Your Purposes?
Primarily designed as a competition shooter, the SC-1 is built to exacting standards with tight quality control to ensure that every model can perform with the best of them. Built as an over/under shotgun, this model is meant to hold 2 shells at a time and provides exceptional accuracy from both barrels. Both barrels are ported and feature a vent rib with Invector Plus choke threads to allow for a customized spread pattern. They measure 30” long and provide a smooth bore that is ready to deliver consistency with every shot you take. The receiver is a 10mm ventilated top rib, which is designed to last for a lifetime and provides a stable foundation for the competitive shooter to operate at the range or in the field.
Looking towards the stock, users can enjoy a choice between a black, blue, or green finish. Whichever you opt for, be ready for a checkered laminated wood construction, which combines the durability you need with a lightweight construction that helps maintain the perfect balance during those competitions. The blue and black models are adjustable for comb height and length of pull to allow for some degree of customization. Featuring an adjustable, recoil activated single-stage trigger, you can enjoy a pull between 5.5 and 7.7 pounds, depending on your personal preferences. For sights, the gun includes a ventilated top rib with white mid-bead and fiber-optic front. With a tang safety that doubles as a barrel selector, you should have an easy time choosing which barrel to shoot from when the time comes.
An In-Depth Look at the SC-1 Shotgun
Looking under the hood of this offering from FN Herstal, you will find that there is more than just these features to consider. To start, you need to decide which color model you are after. Both the blue and black SC-1 shotguns come with 5 extended choke tubes, which include: skeet, x2, full, mod, and IC. Alternatively, the green SC-1 includes just 3 extended choke tubes: mod, IC, and full. Regardless of which one you select, the extended choke tube brings the overall length of the weapon to 46.38”. Completely empty, the gun weighs in at 8.2 pounds, making it just about the weight you would expect from something built for such precision. Whichever you choose, the gun is chambered in 12 gauge and will take 2 3/4” magnum shells.
