Picked up a new 17s in FDE about a month ago. Put a Leupold Illuminated M4 2.5-8x36 in a Larue mount on it and a Larue bipod I had laying around.
Picked up some mags and took it to the range yesterday.
Did a quick 25 yard sight in and then 100 yards. This thing can shoot.
Got a 1.5-2" group with cheap ammo at 100 yards and it was no problem to hit the steel targets out to 400 yards.

Think I am going to order a Geissele trigger to it, but other than that I am PLEASED:)

This is a great forum and I appreciate all the great info here.

Congrats on your more accurate FDE 17. More ammo and a Geisselle Trigger are the best things you can do for a SCAR.

Thanks, need to clarify, the cheap ammo was some DAG and Hirtenberger I bought some years ago, should have bought more:) this is very accurate ammo in most of my rifles.

Perhaps you might want t read through all the posts on the different triggers available for the SCAR platform before settling on one so quickly.

Two years ago I did not own a FN firearm, very pleased to have picked this up.

Or you could save yourself a lot of time and just order the Geisselle anyway, because that is the conclusion you would reach after reading all the threads anyway.
^^ This again.

Also a +1 for the DAG ammo. It shot as well out to 600 meters as any ammo except the handloaded match ammo. I still have a couple thousand rounds of it, and I wish I had 10,000 rounds....

Just put the Geissele in and what a difference.
Great trigger, breaks right at 3#.
Santa was good to me:)

I finally put a Leupold tactical 3.5x10 on mine. It shot 5 rounds under an inch at 100 yards. If I eliminated the flier, it was under half inch center to center. I can't wait to shoot it at longer ranges.
