I am trying to decide on a rifle to use for 3 gun and all I see are AR's. Anyone use a 16s?

Thanks

I searched 3gun, 3 , and gun. Never thought of 3-gun but still thought to ask

I've shot the 16 in competition.

I also RO'd at the LaRue 3Gun Nationals last year, and the entire Team FNHUSA were using SCARs.

The Surefire 3Gun Nationals is in a couple weeks. I'm sure they'll be using them, again.

I've seen many competitors use them. ARs are just more modular and accessible, with a longer history; thus they are more widespread.

I run a 16S with a Geissele trigger and FN extended fore-end in BRASS two gun shoots! Never an issue or malfunction!

I'll let you know on the 27th this month. I'm going to use mine in this month's match.

I've run mine a few times at our local rifle match.

No problems and I prefer the SCAR's ergoniomics over the AR any day of the week. The reciprocating CH is very nice as a means of determining why I have a dead trigger: if the CH is forward I probably have a dud round or empty chamber, if it's all the way back I've got a empty mag, if the plastic knob is at some weird intermediate position I've got a stoppage.
