As you all know I ordered the more accurate version of the SCAR 17. The FDE version. This thread will be about the journey to make her into my Ultimate SCAR 17. As the items start to come in I will post pictures and or videos of the items and there install. This will take some time as I have items coming in from all around our Great Nation. So far I have ordered the following:

SCAR 17 FDE
SCAR 16 FDE (The wife wanted it. How could I say no?)
Night Force 2.5-10x42 Mil-R
ADM Recon-s Mount
Geissele Trigger pack (Exile Machine)
Magpul Extended Safety (Amazon)
Titanium Firing Pin (Ebay)
10 FDE Mags from STRYKER ENTERPRISE (forum supporter so I support him)

Still need to order the following:

E.A.C.H.
Atlas Bi-Pod
Sling
Red Dot
1 Oclock position mount.

Im a bit old fashioned and sent a check for everything with the exception of the Geissele trigger. So stay tuned.

Just wanted to test a theory. I think they are better from a pure Physics point of view. I have been told they don't make a difference to they do make a difference. Mostly no one can really explain the cons so I figured I would drop the $35 bucks and see if I could actually feel a difference. For me they logically would make a difference in reducing lock time. But the real world sometimes tends to have a different view on things. Just ask Obama........ For $35 bucks and a few minutes I will get my answer. If I dont see an improvement then it will go in my emergency parts bin.

Yea I was going to buy an E.A.C.H but got an email asking me to send a check and I'm in Afghanistan...I don't bring my check book or do I even know where they're at, but it'll have to wait until I get back in March to make it happen. It's pretty much the last thing I need/want right now for my SCAR right now.

Checks? I didn't even know banks printed out checks for people to use anymore. Unless you've been hanging on to these for the last decade.

On the new firing pin. Sometimes people like putting fancy, "exotic" metal parts parts, that make no difference in their guns. :) Ask Glock owners about that.
Its funny you mention that. I have had the same book of checks since 2006. I think I have about 50% of the checks left as well. :lol:

I'm really interested to know how you like the NF...especially the MIL-R reticle.

OT:

My ex-wife did our finances and since my divorce I've been using web bill pay. I don't think I've written a check in 20+ years.

Since we had are credit card info stolen more than once from online purchases I have greatly reduced using plastic. I use PayPal sometimes but only on Ebay when I must. Its been over a year for that until last night. Amazon we have never had any issues with. Checks I know are a dying breed but its easier for criminal to get your card info and create all kinds of hell in your life.

I've often wondered about account number and routing info on checks too though. But I'm in the same boat. Had my debit card cloned and an attempted purchase of $400 in CA. Fortunately, that was an hour after I'd used it in TN so it was flagged. Also had a CC number stolen and used for online "subscriptions." yes, porn sites. Transactions from IP addresses all over the world. And, it was all gay porn. Was actually kinda funny trying to tell visa that, no I didn't subscribe to a hundred gay porn sites over the course of one month. $3000 worth!! My wife thought it was especially funny. I had the tech team of investigators I worked with at the sheriff's dept try to track them down. Russia, Barcelona, LA, Chicago. Someone probably sold my info online somehow. Never caught them.

Looks like you'r doing it up right, now you are making me wish I would have gone with a higher power scope on my 17, the mark 4 2.5-8x32 is a great scope and works well on the 16 and 17 but 10-14 on the high side would be nice on the 17.

Im sure they could use the check routing numbers ect ect but its more like work for them to do it compared to buying a stolen card number. Cloning a card these days seems to be easier than tying your shoes.

Well so far I have received my Magpul selector switches. I will check the status of my rifle Tuesday. Hopefully it has shipped. The check cleared Thursday according to my wife.

There has been one slight hiccup. My Night Force scope was accidentally sold. I am told its about an 8 week order process before another one will arrive. I may pick up something else in the mean time and put what ever that is on my wife's SCAR 16 then pick up the Night Force when it gets here. For now I am still waiting for my rifle anyway. Some good news though. My Geissele Trigger Pack arrived today and I received an email saying my firing pin shipped.:shock:

Im ok with it. They are still going to give me the same deal. I will pick it up from them in 8 weeks or so. In the mean time I ordered another one that was a decent deal. Says it will arrive by Thursday the 13th. I'm sure my wife will want the NF 2.5-10x42 on her SCAR 16. I also ordered a ADM Recon S 30mm. They only seem to have the inaccurate black version available. A quick blast with Aluminum Oxide and some FDE Cerakote will bring back its accuracy potential.
