Thanks. The one thing I don't like is the front sight. Without using a tool on the small end of the pin it won't go up or down. I will try the lube trick later and hope that clears it up.

You do know there is a little lever you need to slide up to make the sight fold right? Its not something you depress, just slide it up and the sight folds.

Picked up an FDE SCAR 17s yesterday. Counting the AFG and magazine that's 6 colors of TechniTan!

Now if only I could afford an optic for it.....

Fn is smarter than you think. They intentionally use all those shades of FDE. Its called tactical confusion. Its like a lion chasing a zebra, all the stripes confuse the lion. Your enemy won't be able to aim at you.

I thought it was just FN's custom camo.

On another note I have gotten several "welcome to the forum". I've been here for years, just a low post count as I didn't have a FN to comment on.

I have two optics I could put on it for now, an EoTech EXPS3 and a ACOG TA31H on a Larue mount (has the M4 BDC). Those are the optics for my lightweight AR.

Any thoughts on which should go on for now? From what I have read anything else in the house might not survive.

BDC aside, the ACOG would be a nice fit on your 17. But I'm kind of an ACOG fan.

CONGRATS!

First you gotta post a pic.

Next you have to get that ugly sticker off!

then...you need a sidearm for it.

then repeat the above but for a 16s.

finally...you need a sword.
