Hello all - new Scar owner - new to forum and new to platform.

Any and all advice welcome - I'll be reading and searching to try and catch up.

I've had this for over a week now, and still haven't shot the damn thing. Hoping to get out soon. In the mean time, brown truck has made numerous stops!


New BG17 TD Battle grip, VLTOR Stock, Way of Gun sling, WMLx, BCM KAG, Magpul selectors, and IWC charging handle.

I gotta say, the WMLx with Thorntail mount fits like a glove. Front sight slides right past light!
With low profile ladders, and KAG - I'm happy I'm able to get a positive clamp.

Front sight is easy to engage to pop up, but tougher to put back down. Anyone find it easy to switch the lever to the right side?? If not - I'm not to worried about it. Once up, it's up. Once the H1 is mounted - it'll be pretty much down, until the Aimpoint breaks or runs out of batteries.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the 16!

Put a couple drops of oil on the front sight and work it up and down. It'll loosen up. Mine felt welded in place (open and closed) when I got it, but it's easy like Sunday morning now.

Thanks for the welcome gents.

One of the draws of the SCAR was the lack of maintenance required (cleaning and lube) compared to the DI platform.

I'm having trouble finding solid info, as to cleaning schedule (bolt, rails, piston) as well as barrel - for standard, not suppressed fire. Researching - it sounds like it's personal preference.
Either clean every range trip - or clean after 2 years, with the understanding that it will be a ***** to get the piston out.

Barrel - my understanding is that this can be overdone - and degrading the throat or crown is no bueno.

So if there's nothing conclusive - I'm thinking about simply cleaning every 500 rounds - per the Brownells cleaning instructions Sticky. EXACTLY to the 'T'.
