Finally had the opportunity to get the new 17S out today. I am very impressed and not the least bit upset that I sold a LRB M25 to buy the SCAR.

Initial observations:


  • This thing needs a new trigger. Ordering a Shooting Site very, very soon.
  • Great ergos
  • Light and as easy to handle as my 16" M4
  • Mine really likes 40.9g of H4985 under 168g HPBT's
  • It didn't destroy my cheap Weaver 2.5-10x scope
  • Very pleased with the accuracy. (300yd target below) Can't wait to see how my groups improve with a real trigger.
Only changes I made to the stock rifle were the addition of a Breakout 2, Magpul selector and Tango Down B17 grip.

Can't wait to shoot it more.

Good looking rig. Regarding your BG17 grip, did you have any trouble getting it to fit? The last one I played around with was beyond snug going on. Any gap that you can see between the lower and the top of the grip?

My B17 fit pretty very well. The supplied grip screw wasn't the right size so I cut down the stock grip screw to fit. No gaps between the lower on mine.
