The main reason for the polymer lower was to meet the required weight limit in the request. The polymer lower isn't a stressed part and not easy to break.Thanks, an aluminum lower would be nice. I guess I'm just used to the all steel fal of days past. One thing that draws me to the scar is its lighter weight definately lighter than the old belgian fals I've shot. I'm not too crazy about the polymer lower though myself.
Sadly for most that will never happen from FN, only way to get that is to do it yourself. :wink:I wouldn't mind having an fde scar 17 in the same fde color.
I dont have a problem with the polymer lower, I've had polymer AR lower break on the buffer tube connection area before, but I dont think that will happen on the SCAR because SCAR lower does not take any pressure. The only claim of the lower breaking is from Peruvian military's torture trail, apparently they still adopted the SCAR, so even the lower cracked, it must still have met their expections in durability.
Thanks for the link Rad and info.Althrough the Peruvians put the SCAR through some rough test, their soldiers still can't seem to put an optic on right. (Sorry, I will embed the pic once I'm home on my computer)
Don't tell me your a French Model!No, no, no. You are missing it. It is meant as a disruptive pattern camouflage. The FDE is SUPPOSED to be all different colors to make it more difficult to spot.
It's true. I swear.
I read it on the internet.
I was thinking that about the baby poo also.I personally like my mismatched fde/OD/clay/baby poo colored SCARs
It seems like the fde models are more sought after.I am with you, they look great! I turned down some great offers on black SCAR 17s in search of my FDE.
Rumor has it the blemished scar parts get thrown together and painted FDE to cover the blemishes. FNH then cobbles rifles together with their left over blemished parts. Thus why they're different colors and less accurate than the black rifles. They weren't complete rifles with matched parts to begin with...I'm curious as I've heard that the lower receivers on the scar's are plastic. Were they ever made of aluminum like AR's? Who makes steel lowers and why doesn't the Fde uppers and lowers not match in color? Thanks,
That must be why the Fde's cost more, what with trying to match all the mismatched parts. I've heard the black Scars are more accurate.Rumor has it the blemished scar parts get thrown together and painted FDE to cover the blemishes.

By rumor I mean I totally made that up. Love black guns, don't like brown
