Welcome Aboard. We're located in the South Bend & Mishawaka area.
You'll be glad to know that current military testing on the SCAR is being run here in Indiana at Crane NSWC and it looks like they have a winner.
SOCOM is going to be the first military entity to receive the SCAR, the small arms dept of SOCOM is at the NSWC, but final approval for US military acceptance is still pending . The USMC is doing trials of their own at Quantico now also. FN has said to expect SCAR sales to begin later this year, but with military trials finsihing up later this year too, I'm gonna bet sales outside the military don't begin until mid-late 2009 and will be released in small amounts initially.
I'm already in line to get one of both variants and the wait is still long.
