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.
