About a year ago i contacted a member on calguns.net who is an ffl out of phx. Heard he did california compliance included in the price of the rifle you were buying. In the case of scars this is important as local shops really are charging a lot for the compliant scars. 3200-3300 was not uncommon for a 17 with 16s around 2900-3000. I heard he also did layaways. Long story short he told me yes i will do a 6 month layaway, no fee, no interest, same price as cash in hand. So i bought a 17s for 2800 and worked hard to pay it off in 4 months. I absolutely love it. I figured i will only be able to afford one scar, its gonna be a 17.

Recently i have been craving a new 5.56. Im just bored with the ar i have. I want to be excited About shooting 5.56 again especially at half the price of shooting my 17. Also its cross platform traning really. So i asked him about a 16s. 2300 with 1 year to pay it off. Piece of cake. i am very excited about it and am already picturing mods in my head. Question is should i go fde to match the 17? Its more accurate, i know. Or get black and cerakote receivers either tungsten grey, or patriot brown with black stock, grip, and mag. What say you scar brothers?

Congrats, man. I say stick with FDE. But I'm a sucker for a matched pair. Of course, the term "matched" in regards to FDE requires a fairly loose definition.

I tend to like the guys that put their personal touch on their SCARs with custom camo jobs. Some have been outstanding. I say make it your own in whatever color floats your boat.

Yeah i havent seen a scar cerskored tungsten, burnt bronze, patriot brown etc. I do think the split of black ad dark brown would be cool. Man i wish there were still greenbacks floating around. I absolutely love them. I did a kryptek krylon job on my ar recently but wouldnt do it on a scar. Came out pretty good though.

FDE is more accurate on both platforms....

This thread inspired me to put one on layaway myself. FDE Scar 17. Soooooo freakin pumped right now!! I'd like to add some goods to it though. I'll probably go with a BCM pistol grip and VG. But as far as the rail goes, is an extension the way to go or should I get a complete one (if they make one)?
