I picked my SCAR 17S FDE today and was checking over this beauty when I noticed this! Is that rust on the circle part of the sling ring? ( near the gas regulator) Is this part easily replaced?

It doesn't look like rust to me but could be. Honestly, I wouldn't worry about it. It's a beautiful rifle! Yes, I know when you pay $3k for a rifle you want it to be perfect. It is. It just has a beauty mark.
Welcome to the Forum and congrats on the 17!:?

Yeah, that part is anodized aluminum. It can't rust. It is right next to the piston in an area where hot gas exits the rifle.

Or get the more accurate BLACK instead... I won't rust as much as the FDE :p

Yes that BLACK part does seem to be the problem............... Take it off and Cerakote it FDE. The less black you have on the rifle the less problems will occur.

On a more serious note. Its NOT rust. Clean it shoot it get it dirty shoot it more and then clean it again. Its a tool.
