I've been drooling over this rifle for the last two years and today I finally became a SCAR 17 owner - it was worth the wait.

I'll post better full length shots tomorrow, but for now I took some quick bathroom lighting pics with my phone more for the color variation...

The upper is more OD Green than it is FDE. When I say "more" I mean, it's literally OD green, and not really FDE at all, but I think I dig it.

EDIT: More pics added -

Nice, on an aside, the FDE color was never meant to be exactly FDE, mostly designed to be a better base for camo than black.

They were more brown looking at some point.

Congrats

if you are looking for a charging handle sarge has his each in fde and it's a perfect color match to the upper. It also helped that I took the each with me to Home Depot so they can scan it to give me a color match on paint so I can paint my tac light. I don't think taking the scar to Home Depot would have been wise lol

Congrats on the 17. If I get a 16 someday to go with my black 17 I would love to have an OD upper. Looks awesome man.

How common are these OD green upper'd 17s?

Has anyone else gotten one like this?
They're out there, just gotta look around a lot. Lester and I found ours on gun broker. But they're 16s.
