    Got the FN SCAR 16S today. I'll get it to the range at the end of this week or next week and post some targets for a range report.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Here is some info on the SCAR from their sight - SCAR™ Semi-auto

    Item #98501
    Operation - Gas piston/short stroke
    Caliber/Ga - .223 Rem
    Barrel Length - 16 1/4"
    Overall Length - 27 1/2"
    Weight - 7 lbs. 4 oz.
    Magazine Capacity - 30

    The SCAR 16S is chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO (223 Rem.) while the SCAR 17S fires the 7.62x51mm NATO (308 Win.) cartridge. The innovative gas-operated, short stroke piston system reduces fouling for greater reliability.

    Both the SCAR 16S and 17S feature user-interchangeable, free floating, cold hammer-forged MIL-SPEC barrels with hard-chromed bores.

    Models with 10- or 30-round detachable box magazines (DBM) are available. Fully-ambidextrous operating controls instantly adapt the SCAR S-Series to any user. The receiver integrated MIL-STD 1913 optical rail plus three accessory rails enable mounting of a wide variety of tactical lights and lasers.

    The side-folding polymer stock is fully adjustable for comb height and length of pull, and is colored authentic USSOCOM Flat Dark Earth

    Pretty danged cool! At least for the moment I'll hold out for the ACR to become available. However, if I found a SCAR under the Christmas tree I certainly would be very happy!

    I look forward to your review, I'm undecided between a LaRue AR, ACR or SCAR.
