After weeks of waiting, I'm finally a new proud owner of a 17s! :shock::shock: Just need to get out the range now and add all the goodies on her.

Here's what I'm planning. If anyone has suggestions or recommendations, I'd love to hear.

1. Optic - Acog TA11 or an Elcan
2. Sling - ?
3. Vertical Grip - Tango down stubby
4. Charging Handle - E.A.C.H
5. Muzzle Brake - ?
6. Anything else you would recommend?

Here's a little eye candy for everyone. Opening the box was greater than all previous Christmases combined.

Congrats on the 17! I would recommend switching out the trigger eventually. And if you want looks, go for the VLTOR stock.

Vickers sling is great. I have the brakeout 2.0 brake on mine and love it. The AAC blackout is also nice if you want a flash hider.
The TA11 is a great acog model for the scar 17 . That or a nice scope is in order for the rifle

Congrats on the 17...

As far as suggestions:
Sling - Blue Force Gear VCAS
Trigger - Geissele SuperSCAR is the only one I've had any experience with but there are a couple of other triggers out there.

What the trigger pull of the geissele compared to the OEM?

Congrats...Like it paired with the handgun. Geisselle trigger is a very nice. I just got mine a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately haven't made it to the range yet but that hasn't stopped from me buying goodies for it. lol

In the best color no less!! Now, with FDE SCAR 17, you will be able to make 600 yard shots right out the box!!! Black only get you 300 out of the box..

That's the route I'm thinking of taking. Then I'll be able to place the rmr on the fnx if needed.
