I know we are all fanboys, fangirls for any ladies on here, but other than proprietary mags and reciprocating charging handle, where are some areas that the SCAR leaves something to be desired?

If you decide to drop your scar from ten feet or more onto concrete you might have some issues.

I actually prefer the reciprocating charging handle. Having to mod grips to fit the tang is an issue. But it's easily solved if you just put the effort and time in to mod a grip to fit. I think the cheek comb could have a better shape as well.

I couldn't agree more: The grip (easily fixed), the length (or lack there of ) of the forend and the cheek weld of the stock buttstock were all issues for me.

The sights are a little loose.
Ammo is pricey.
The trigger is necessarily heavy.
Lots of plastic.
The muzzle brake is rather loud.
The safety is a tad out of reach for some.
The pistol grip is uncomfoftable for many.
Barrels are expensive.
A special tool is required to reinstall the barrel properly.
You will talk youself into spending a ton more money on accessories and possibly another scar.
Everybody wants to shoot it because it is the best.

If I get one I will definitely be getting the super scar trigger, that much I do know. I have two Larue OBR's but I have an itch for a gas piston with a reputation that matches that of the Larue.

My biggest gripe would be the $1.99 grip they put on them. But, as said earlier, that's a small task to swap.

Worst thing about the Scar is the price and price of the accessories IMO. It's a great gun and becomes heavy especially if you plan on adding glass, etc...

The falling short statement is an opinion and you're certainly entitled to it. Much to the chagrin of many dead hadjis who would've preferred it "fell short", the SCAR weapons system did not fall short.

I'm nitpicking, clearly the rifle's service record speaks for its self. I merely say "fall short" to drum up conversation amongst members to see what they would/have change[ed] to make it perfect for them. That way once I do buy one I have some ideas of what to look for as far as things that would make it MY perfect rifle.

Only you can determine what's best suited to your needs. Purchase one and shoot it. It may well be everything you want, as delivered to your dealer from FN.
