A few years ago I had my mind made up to buy a Scar 17 and then rationalized that an AR10 would be sufficient. I kept my eye on them and saw one topped with an Acog at an auction, but it along with everything else went for stupid high prices. As Karma would have it, I spotted a FDE Scar 17 with an Acog RMR and a few other extras and bought it. I don't have it yet, but I'm doing my post-purchase research and shopping. So, this is my first FN firearm and my first post on this forum.
