Well just jumped in and ordered a FDE Scar 17, I feel like I got a heck of a deal from High Plains Gun Shop as well under the mil/LE program it was just over 2500$. I was looking and debating whether I should buy a scar or build a lightweight Mega Metan I just couldn't come to the terms that I couldn't guarantee reliability on the other platform. I know I could have built a good rifle, but as tested and reliable as the scar and just as accurate as distance I will be shooting it was a no brained. I plan to when funds are back installing the geissele trigger and a vortex razor HD 1-6x in a ADM mount. Today is a good day.

Will post pics up when I get it, I am thinking of selling my Czechpoint VZ-58 and ammo to purchase the optics. Would you guys sell a gun and ammo for optics on your SCAR?

Lots of folks do.

Me, nothing that enters my house ever leaves (without coming back). But, I have regret issues...so I'm probably not the best person to ask.

I know the VZ isn't a Kalashnikov design, but it looks like one. That alone would be reason enough for me to unload it. ;) But seriously, if you're attached to the rifle then I'd say wait and save up for optics. If you're not that attached to it, then heck yeah, sell that puppy and get some optics for your new favorite noise maker!

Congrats on the purchase.

How long were you waiting for it to become "in stock" on high plains? I really want one but moneys a bit tight right now. If I wait and it becomes out of stock, how long am I looking at before they're back.

I signed up for the notification email yesterday evening, I was feeding the baby this morning and my phone message alert went off. Needless to say I jumped right on it. Not sure but I am sure if you email them he will try to give you a good estimates.
