I never said that I have personally seen a Scar stock hinge break so there's no need to take my post out of context. If you watch the high speed video on Handl's website (SCAR Stock Hinge | Handl Defense) of how harmonics effects the hinge and ultimately the stock which translates into felt recoil for the shooter you will better understand why they made it. It's more for the direct impacts from the BCG slamming into the interface repeatedly than the actual hinge being a weak point. Also, they specifically state that Socom users have had breakages and they provide a photo for your disbelief.I have never seen a photo or heard a 1st hand account of a SCAR OEM stock hinge breaking. The Handl hinge seems to be a solution to a non-existent problem. It would be great if you could post some links to the occurrences of the SCAR hinge failure.
