I'm in the process of putting together a Mk12 Mod 1 clone, and my TS-30 A2 (Mk4 2.5-8x36 w/ 77 gr elevation turret) came in yesterday - since I'm still on the hunt for a good scope for my SCAR 17S, for ****s and giggles I decided to see what it would look like with the SCAR.

This was just to get a rough idea of what I'd be working with - mostly taking note of the size of the scope relative to the rifle (I like the size).

Seems like this would be a good fit - what do you think? Anyone running this scope on their 17?

Not a bad range for the SCAR 17S. I personally prefer having a true 1x on a semiautomatic rifle though such as the Leupold Mark 6 1-6x or the new Trijicon VCOG 1-6x.

I hear ya on the true 1x - it's a nice thing to have for sure.

Im using the Mark 4 2.5-8x36 lighted reticule on my 16 and think it's the perfect match and the same scope on the 17 and now thinking I need higher power than 8, it has done pretty well out to 600 and have shot to 800 but not as well as I would like, so I will go to mark 6 3-18x44.

The Mk6 3-18x44 is what I'd really like to get - just a tad pricey.

Would you run the TMR reticle with the 3-18? Or something different?

You can see the 2.5-8 Mark 4 looks and works great on my black 17. And here's a couple shots with my FDE 17 wearing the 3-18x44 Mark 6. In that one I'm running the Horus H-58 reticle. Lately though I've been running one of my Mark 8 CQBSSs. It's a 1.1-8 with the H-27D reticle. (Love having a Delta Point at the 1 O'clock position as to keep my face on the stock while switching quickly from near to far back to near targets.)
