    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.

    Starting to show up around $2500 now. That might come down a little more.

    In the 4th and 5th pics above the bar code and to the right is the serial, but the serial is also on that bar code with some other letters and numbers. It appears that the bar code is just for inventory. It looks like something I can peel off - I haven't tried yet.

    Ideally 6.8, but 5.56 being the only real choice then. I already have a .308(M1 Socom II), and this time want something light weight, and properly SBR'd. Would seem best to properly stick to the AR, SBR ACR and SCAR would seem hard to come by for sometime.

    If I ever move to a state without crappy laws I'd look very quickly into getting an ACR or a SCAR, and prolly a tax stamp for a suppressor. Sadly as long as NY finished up my address I'll be happy with the AR I'm trying to build, pinned stock and all. Anybody know if the SCAR is available in a fixed stock?
