I have both also but JonM already covered everything very well. My Socom is in the back of the safe probably very jealous of my new steady, the SCAR 17.

Let me know if you don't have any luck at the gun show tomorrow. I'll talk to my buddy and see what he thinks.

No luck at the gun show, I found one but the guy wanted $3200. I couldn't control my laughing to take it any further.

IIRC, the 17s has an 18 inch barrel and the SOCOM has a 16 inch barrel, right? How would the SOCOM have more velocity than the 17s?

So if the barrels are the same length, why are some people in this thread saying the SOCOM has more velocity?

should be pretty close in velocity. scar MIGHT edge it but not in any way that truly matters. chromed bore helps just a fraction of a scootch and you can get gas plugs that let you turn the gas off and go single shot.

doing that your talking like at most well within the margin of chronograph error

fn just released their 14" sbr barrels and will be releasing the mk20 20" barrels soon.
