Let's have it guys. WHAT accessories are you thinking about? Here's mine, and I would like to know what you all are thinking as well!

1. MIAD GRIP (IF they work? I think they do, RIGHT GUYS?) BLK OR FDE in color. Not sure. I really wish I could find some pics of BOTH BLACK AND FDE so I could see what looks best. Same goes for the next few accessories:

2. TD Rail Panels (OR KAC?) TD are usually a tighter fit though. Again, not sure whether I want Black OR FDE???

3. TD Stubby VFG- I've never been much for VFG's, but I think this gun just screams "VFG" compatible, so I'm going to at least try one. BLK or FDE??

4. Sling: Padded VCAS: I've always used the black ones, but this time, I'm thinking either OD green, OR FDE padded! I think OD just might be the ticket, to change things up a bit. Of course, black WOULD look nice too. I just think a FDE VCAS would be TOO much FDE on this gun, ya know?

5. PMAGS. OR the new "EMAGS". I'm thinking BLACK PMAGS/EMAGS for SURE guys. I always thought black PMAGS looked great in the LWRC FDE AR's...

6. Optic: Aimpoint? M3/M4S maybe? Hell, I'm even thinking a Micro T1/H1 might even be the ticket here guys. IF I had the YEN, I would seriously be considering one of those FDE TA31-ECOS ACOG's, but those are just too spendy right now.
Besides, as I said earlier, I'm thinking that I'll use some black accessories on parts of this gun. For anyone who has seen the LWRC FDE guns, you will notice that the BLACK Magpul CTR stocks, and the PMAGS look GREAT on that FDE gun. I am not quite sure which parts I'll use in black, but I DO KNOW that some black accessories will look MUCH better than if I were to go with ALL FDE items on my SCAR guys.
What do you guys have planned on your SCARS?
I think I'm really going to enjoy this setup. 8)

I post a pic of mine later in the week when I get it all put together! :grin:
Well, I have mine put back together and is ready to be sighted in (minus a sling, should be in next week). I was planning on a day @ the range sighting mine in, but we had some really nasty weather today. I did shoot a few rounds from my back deck just for giggles ( I live wayyyy back in the country). The feltl recoil was different than with my ARs. I then attached a suppressor and shot a few more rounds. To my ear (I don't have a sound meter) it sounded quiter than my ar with the same suppressor. It would be interesting to see if it actually is quiter. Here is a pic I took this evening. Sorry about the pic/lighting.

Nice mgpatty. Did you replace the flash hider/muzzle break that originally came with it?
I changed the muzzlebrake from the PWS to a AAC M41000 mount to match the old-style M42000 suppressor that I have. The PWS just screws off. I didn't have access to a vice or barrel blocks so I shipped it my gunsmith and had him do it. It cost $20 including return shipping. The AAC mounts adds a little more to the OAL of the barrel versus the PWS comp.
I ordered some of the new Tango Down rail panel covers for the SCAR. I'll try and post some pics when they arrive next week.
Actually, the combonation I use is a 3/8" drive Seekonk with a 3/8" T25 driver (socket that has the bit perm. attached to it from the factory). Paul, if I understand you correctly you plan on using a removable 1/4" T25 bit in conjunction with a 1/4" socket and 1/4" drive torque wrench. With mine, the T25 torx bit doesn't detach from the socket. I use only a wrench and a torx driver (socket/bit combo). I have many 1/4" T25 bits by themselves, but I could not find a T25 driver (socket with bit attached) in 1/4". I'm sure that somebody probably makes one, but I could not locate one. You could use a 1/4" drive Seekonk wrench in conjunction with standard 1/4" socket and a standard T25 bit, but that IMO wouldn't be as durable as just the wrench and socket/bit combo. Furthermore since this wrench is going to be used with the SCAR only, my primary decision between going with a 3/8" over a 1/4" was the fact that the 3/8" torx driver (socket/bit combo) was what I could locate. What benefit would you gain by using a smaller drive wrench, especially since it is only going to be used for one purpose only?
