It depends on how much price difference there was between the two guns. If you paid more than $40 for each mag after all was said and done, you laid out more than you should have.

As far as regretting color, I'll say that black gets really hot if you shoot outdoors in the summer. I've got several ARs that can get too hot to handle if they've been laying in the sun for 5min or so. Spray paint solves that problem nicely.

The Black SCARS are very nice indeed. Glad you were able to get a few extra free mags.

Sanman023,

Enjoy the new SCAR, color is irrelevant for non-Mil/LEO users and it sounds like you got a good deal. Now for the ammo...
