You shouldn't need the 17 size receiver for 7.62x39. That cartridge is barely longer than 556 NATO's OAL.Wasn't the 7.62x39 part of the modularity plan all along for the 17s?
Uncle John has a long mustache.Top 3 U.S. consumer target groups for a SCAR 7.62X39.
1. Red Dawn Peppers
2. Mall Ninjas
3. FNH Collectors
I'd buy one to put in my safe just because its an FN SCAR, as well as, any other OEM future caliber releases: 6.8 SPC, 300BO, 338FED, 458SOCM, etc...
