I've had my SCAR 17s for a number of years now, but I only JUST found out it's known as an eater of optics. I've owned a Leupold HAMR scope for about 3 years now, thus far no problems. That being said, I'm a little concerned, has anyone had any problems with this scope on the SCAR 17s? What kind of "symptoms" should I be looking for if it happens to me? Is there any other good knowledge you can point me to?
