current state of the scar17
 
the wife decided not only was the savage hers she sprung the acog is now mine too on me.... so she has what used to be my nightforce, savage fcpsr, and now i no longer seem to own a acog. *sigh* maybe it wasnt such a good idea buying her a bcm for her birthday. its created a monster

anyway i picked up a new trijicon today. one of their accupoint 3-9x with mildot reticle in green. mount is an adm scout-s qd.

That's pretty awesome!
Is the SCAR in 5.56 or 7.62?
I always thought they were in 5.56, but when my cousin came back from basic, he said they were talkin about convertin them to 7.62, so I don't know...

The scar17 is 7.62 which mine is. The scar16 is 556. Socom has adopted the scar17 so its the new milspec 308 semi along with the m14 which is still in limited service.

Its adoption to service is one of the reasons magazines are hard to find as well as spare parts.

Ok, thanks.
I am also curious about the factory sights I have seen on them at gun shows and in that God-forsaken game call of duty. They seem to sit high up, but from what I have seen, they were made like that to be adjustable, correct?

JonM 11-27-2012 04:21 AM

Thats semi correct. They are that tall so you can see through them with a natural cheek weld on the buttstock. Any lower and you would be tilting your head unnaturally or have a stock with a too low cheek weld to be useful in cqb. With the cheek riser in the low position it gives a natural sight picture with irons in the up its a natural with scopes. Since the rail is full length you not limited to certain mounting options only like non-monolithic ar10's

The rear sight is adjustable for windage and the elevation has a neat working bdc type adjustment in increments of 25 and 50 yards between the 100 meter markings. Its graduated to 600m. The bdc in the rear iron sight isnt target quality accurate in that its not adjustable for pinpoint accuracy but its good enough drop compensator for minute of goblin

The front sight is driftable for windage and elevation for zeroing. The iron sights are really outstanding second only to rra's national match sights. They just edge out the matech buis

Thats awesome!
I never thought about sights position in a natural place. That's actually pretty ingenious.

Why for you didn't like the PWS? Was it the FSC30?

im not sure what model they use as its stamped FNH but here is a pic of one

http://www.recoilweb.com/wp-content/...k1-306x205.jpg

i dont like its massive backblast. its downright unpleasent as you get this massive Concussive blast and overpressure wave right in your face and eyes.

it does dampen recoil and muzzle climb but the side effects make it not worth it. i had to double up on hearing protection to shoot it with it on.

ive since replaced it with a surefire scar-h flash hider which doubles as a suppressor mount for my surefire suppressor. now its shootable in ohsht if i dont have time to dive for hearing protection.

Ok gotcha. That's not the FSC 30 but very similar. I kind of enjoy the blast, it makes me feel like I got a hold of something and my buddies on the spotting scope next to me can't stay on target. It is pretty loud. I didn't notice much difference when replacing it with the Mikulek.

Like that Trij. I'm using the TR-22.
