New SCAR

Post by Hebs » 19 Feb 2012, 19:07

Went on a tour at the FN plant Friday and this lil guy followed me home... Always wanted one, but never thought I'd get one.

Congrats.
I'm officially jealous.

Be sure to check each Mag. even the FN one that came with your SCAR. in cert then in lower Assy. see that the bolt carrier release does not touch the Mag. many will and need reworking. This can damage the bolt if not fixed.

Also read the manual about removing the gas regulator and the short piston. Popping out the piston takes some learning how to get them out.

You picked a great rifle enjoy shooting it. :)

Didn't come with a mag, but I'll be checking the mags I purchase this weekend. I think I'll go back and grab the DE tactical .45 next week. The prices are just too damn tempting...

If you bought a brand new rifle it should have come with one FN Mag. If not then someone stole it. If you bought a used rifle someone just kept it to get some extra money by selling it. I bought two FN 10rd Mags because I could not find any other 10rd Mags.

You can utilize a magnet to pull the piston out of the SCAR 17S. May be easier than using anything to push it out.

The rifle wasn't used. It just happened to not come with it. I went with a couple friends Friday and 2 of my friends both bought SCARs as well. They both had the single mag, half black, half FDE. I agree it should have come with one, but it didn't.

The FDE .45 Tactical followed me home as I knew it would. I can't wait to shoot it.

These things are starting to grow on me. It's taking some work to get over the colors on this that thing though.
