Re: SCAR 17s Optic thoughts?

Something to note with the Spectre DR's, is that the 1x mode is NOT a reflex sight. That means you need perfect cheek-weld, and perfect eye relief when operating in the 1x mode. For those of you used to Aimpoints and Eotechs, its a big disappointment, becuase no-longer are you operating in 'both ey...

Re: SCAR 17 "Real World" Accuracy?

The SCARS kill the AR's in reliability and the FAL's also and do so with less maintenance. Accuracy - depends on what you want: if you choose to shoot while walking tacti-cooly 1 minute or 1 1/2 minutes of accuracy with a 4 MOA dot sight just sounds like you are a not too smart person chasing specs ...

You don't have one and I do. I could not dissagree more. I is a great weapon. I also have a FN SCAR 17: I like the SCAR 17 more but the FN could improve in a couple of areas it it was more like the ACR.
To each his own...Good Shooting to all....

Re: SCAR: How to headspace with quick change barrels?

Sabotteur, thanks for sticking with it, many would not. I will be most interesting to see the details of your friends information. I would have thought it would be a Go/No-Go gauge only situation where if the head space was not right one would try another bolt or barrel trunion if the trunion is a s...

sabotteur,
That is ok, don't worry. Thanks for the follow up. I would be most interested if NSWC Crane does come up with new information for you. I am swamped right now with work but I will PM you later in the week.

SCAR: How to headspace with quick change barrels?

I am SCAR-less, I have ordered one and I am doing a lot of bidding because one in the hand might calm me some! This rifle has really gotten under my skin. I looked online last night for a SCAR manual but I could not find one. Can someone tell me how this rifle headspaces with the quick change barrel...

Re: Now Taking SCAR Pre Orders

Ok I just had an excellent idea! If everyone helps to sell all the stock of Ray's dealer packs he will be forced to order more therefore guarenteeing the order of more SCAR's! This is especially true for those of us (cough) who are not locked in on the dealer pack rifles. Get the word out! What do ...
