About to buy: Looking at FS2000 / MSAR STG-556 / SCAR-L

As it states, I am about to buy one these.

I have managed to save up here and there (sold a few collectables as well) and now my savings just ran past getting a FiveSeven, which was my original plan.

Now I am looking at getting something that shoots .223. I really want something solid and upgradeable. I really don't want future problems. As I see it these are my current possibles in order-

Microtech STG-556- in my price range, proven platform and updated. Made here in US, can be converted to shoot 6.8 SPC as well. Cheap mags and can add on rails.

FS2000- Great Platform upgrades possible, not that it needs it. Price is a factor as well and have not seen one in person, so I am worried since I don't have monster long arms.

Sig 556 - I have read the other links here and I have held one. Great gun but a few draw backs made it drop to this spot.

Scar-L - not here yet which is why it's 4th, but I do want one. It may be out of my price range if the rumors that say it may run over 3K are true.

Masada - by Magpul and Bushmaster, I want one but cost and when is it coming??

HK 416- again when is it coming.

So please any comments of personal experience with any of these would be great. If you can give a general idea when the Masada may come out?
My $$$ is burning hole in my pocket but I want to be happy with my purchase. I am leaning toward the Microtech due to price and the Unique look of the weapon.

:-x Since I already own the FsN, 90, and the 2K, . . . next on the list I want something that gives me more flexibility. So naturally I gravitate towards either the SCAR or the Masada. Given the possible pricing of both these systems, I'm leaning more towards the Masada at this point. A SCAR would be nice, but for the price (I've heard upwards to $3K) I can think of other more affordable systems to purchase and play with.


...and you can buy them NOW :? , in multiple calibers :p

and as mine currently sits, minus laser

Holy **** that is the XCR?! (opps can I say that)

Very Nice and very impressive.

I may have to reconsider, I just need to see how much these run compared to my bank account.

What did that one run and do you have a stock on it?

MSAR STG-556 and FS2000

Looks like the FS2000 it winning. I wish it was cheaper, then I really would wait to buy one, but I am still not convinced to buy it.

I may be getting a MSAR STG-556. Cost is a concern and for what it would cost to purchase a FS2000, I could fully outfit a MSAR.

I got my finger on the trigger I mean the Mouse trigger.

I have it narrowed down, but I think.


Most likely MSAR due to cost
Next Rifle

Just ran into a problem, or something.

I found a great deal on a MSAR STG-556, best price I have seen anywhere.

I am thinking I should jump on it.

I also sent out some PMs asking questions, thanks for answering quickly and for all the help.

I purchased it from Red's Tradingpost . com. I found it on GB and started to do a layaway but went ahead and paid for it.

btw great service and fast shipping and SUPER price !!


This rifle is great and compact! Shoots great but I still need an optic, since it is a rail. I would have purchased a FS2000 but funds are a problems. Money is tight and I really want to do some Weekend shoots with some work friends.

I guess I will now have to post my pics of it in Black Rifle and not here. I am going to sell one gun of mine because I would like to purchase a FiveSeven before August for the free ammo.
