Default So what do you know about this.... Scar 17 lower receiver upgrade?

http://www.rainierarms.com/?page=shop/detail&product_id=3217

Is this a Scar 17 upgrade? or can we start building these like we can an AR10. I've always wanted a battlerifeesque sub moa ar10, but this...this would be a lot more interesting......

Now the question is, will lpks and uppers be available, or is this only an upgrade for you plastic Scar Receiver, as in you'd have to buy a whole Scar and just change out the reciever......

I have to say that I personally do not YET know a damn thing about this new toy, but you definitely have my attention.

I too would be on board with building one if the parts are available.

Couldn't help myself. I called up Rainer Arms, and they pretty much said that this is just and upgrade for your current receiver for your Scar.

Doesn't sound like there are plans for things upper recievers and other aftermarket goodies at this time... T_T

I'll see what I can find out A.T., but alas I fear SHOT is out of the question this year (2013). Got a vaca scheduled in Dec. and just starting a new day job I don't have the time off banked.

But, I know a couple of good guys who ARE going and I'll see if they can snoop around.

I think those things would sell like hot cakes if it came in parts for a home build.

Hmmmmm. That gives me an idea.

I'd be on board if SCAR's could be built.
