Re: New Member Introduction

I don't think I've introduced actually introduced myself. I'm jacob, I live in Bradenton Florida, I'm brief... I bought my FsN USG in late April about a week before I deployed (because I absolutely needed it!) I will be completely honest with you, I thought the "ES Five Seven" was the coolest gun on...

Re: What to do with my new SCAR.

Sheesh dude, I can drop $4000 on accessories alone and not miss a beat. The world is your oyster when it comes to customizing your weapon from a solid-shooting carbine to yoru own swiss army knife. I hate oysters... That spectre DR is pretty nice, I had the opportunity to check out our 556 models h...

Re: SCAR 17s Optic thoughts?

Weight isnt going to be an issue, but I'm still a bit skeptical...
With the price tag im wondering if a 4x32 ACOG wouldnt be a bad choice.
I'd go 5.5x but they seem kinda funky looking and looks are 70% of the battle

Re: SCAR 17s Optic thoughts?

I did, and that was my concern. Arent those 6x48 ACOGs more for machine guns? lol yall have me thinking about the Elcan now. The only person that has one is leaving for jaf tomorrow though, so I wont get time with it for a bit. I dont really like hte mounting system on them though, or the fact that ...

Re: SCAR 17s Optic thoughts?

What he said about it was way above my head, but I can attest to the horrible eye relief on the 145. We have 2 new 7.62 ACOGs that have been collecting dust for 10 months now. Had one for an hour before the XO took it back, said the field of view was too narrow... Unfortunately the XO hasnt carried ...

Re: SCAR 17s Optic thoughts?

I've heard some really bad things about the Elcan, we have one here. I can't remember exactly what was said, something about eye relief, parallax, exit pupil, the mounts, he wrote a small book on it pretty much. Not to turn you off of it, I just thought I'd tell you. He is a credible source on that ...

SCAR 17s Optic thoughts?

I'm trying to decide what optic to buy for the SCAR 17s I'll be treating myself to after this deployment, at the moment I'm heavily considering the Vortex Razor 1-4x24 with the CQMR-1 reticle (not the one that looks like it belongs on something from HALO). And to my recent knowledge opticsplanet off...
