I believe because the PMAG is lite-er and the MIAD is heavier, the extra 5 ounces probably moves the center of gravity of my Scar 17 to the rear maybe 1/4" if I had to guess. The S.E.A.L. definitely does not upset my Scar 17's excellent balance which makes the 5 ounce weight gain unnoticeable to me as well.Nice work Mityno. Not too much of a difference on the scale. I haven't really noticed a difference with the rifle shouldered.
What kind of wood is that table made out of? Some type of Purple Heart wood??
It is ordinary 3/4" pine "prizewood" (plywood), probably B/C grade if I recall. I made it like that for a computer/electronics workbench many years ago. Some dark brown stain and a couple of coats of polyurethane. I think it would make a decent looking bar with the right trim.What kind of wood is that table made out of?

...and what good is a magazine without any ammo? Thanks for the post and doing the work that many of us would only wonder about. Not sure that a couple ounces would ever make a difference in my decision to stay OEM or go SEAL.First let's see what my unmodified OEM FN Scar 17 lower with an empty 20 round FN Scar mag weighs (because a lower doesn't do you any good without a magazine) on my digital kitchen scale...
Because I pre-ordered a complete S.E.A.L. lower and I waited patiently, enduring all the doubter and hater postings, free assembly was included by Stryker in addition to the free swag (only one shirt, one hat and one patch came in my box, no complaints tho, all nice stuff).How much difficulty did you have if any, installing the Griessel trigger mechanism?
I just purchase a Griessele for my 17 and was seriously looking at the Handl Defense magnesium lower. My understanding is that the Griessele needs to be modified to work in the Handl to make the swap. But if the Seal is a direct swap of parts unlike the Handl then it's a easy decision which one to go with seeing we're only talking about 4 onces by my understanding.
