Has anyone heard anything about the status of the SCAR field testing and/or the status of the weapon with SOCOM (officially adopting/ issuing it to operators)? :?:
Kinda assumed that as SOCOM operators usually like to keep things hush hush.No, you won't see pictures of them.
B52U said:Seems like I've also heard some negative reviews coming out of blogs, people saying they're getting them shoved down their throats. Complaints of the stocks breaking, charging handle being a problem, etc. Of course these could just be HK416 lovers that are bitter that they are going to end up with a different set up. I think the positives that are coming through are out-weighing the negatives.
I doubt the folks at Vicker's school are biased, I'm sure they're quite objective with the experience they have.
From your unbiased perspective, which do you like better: the 416 or the SCAR L? Also, how does the recoil of the 416 compare to the SCAR L because there are a lot of people out there who haven't fired either that say the recoil is lower in the 416.
By the way, what did Vicker's think of the SCAR? :?
