I think 4x for inside of 300 yards sufficient for your intended use. If you are going for groups you'll probably want something stronger. How about an Eotech with a flip to the side 4x magnifier?

I feel that your optic choices are pretty good. Check brownells if you haven't already down so if you're still open to other options.. btw, the rifle looks extraordinary. If you're comfortable answering the question, how much did you and your wife spend on it?

Nice rifle, Gloves! Thanks for the excellent pictures too!

All right guys. I wasn't able to make it to the range this weekend.
Reading through the manual, they mention that I have to clean before
shooting.

"Never fire the rifle upon purchase without first cleaning it" - See PDF Page 15
http://fnhusa1.com/manuals/2010_SCAR_16S-17S_OM.pdf

They say use SLP but i have shooters choice. Will that work and how much
do i have to scrub the barrel to get their junk out?

On any new gun I just run a dry patch down the barrel to check for obstructions and excessive oil. Some times the patch is pretty dirty, sometimes not. Now go shoot.

I went with a Leupold 3.5x-10 x 40 on my SCAR 17S, Its got illuminated Tactical Milled Reticle:


used a Larue mount:









not a great day to sight in the scope - overcast - windy and rainy:



This was a typical 100 yard group, 10 shots, run of the mill Winchester White Box 147 grain FMJ:

I know its been proven to shoot must tighter with Federal Match 162grain, but I am very happy with the rifle's performance with the common ammo.
I am not a good shot by the way.

Goretrro, that's the best report i EVER did see on the SCAR 17 (Scope and shooting results)
We can't wait to get to the range but this weekend it's ALSO going to be rainy.

QUESTION: how did you get that scope in FDE? It looks great with that rifle.

I noticed you went with the Magpul fore grip. I just got, and minuets ago, installed the
Tango Down Vertical Grip in FDE.
It was EXCEPTIONALLY tight and I had to use a mallet to tamp it into place one registry at a time.

it's not going ANYWHERE.

Thanks Gloves!

Looking good!
