4 months? You couldn't locate a dealer with one in stock? You must have some patience.....when I hand over $2k, they had better hand me something in return

3-4 months seems to be the average wait time for a store to get a 17S from a distributor. I got lucky and found one in stock without the wait, I was actually looking for a 16S but after holding the 17S I had to have it.

Congrats on the purchase! You've got a really nice set up there.

I would have loved to have put on some nice glass on mine, but I spent all my toy money on the gun itself! Aimoint is workin fine now for me.

and I guess I got lucky on waiting for mine, exactly 30 days!
But I ordered mine beginning of January, and I guess things werent quite that crazy then

Thanks all,

The Geissele is worth it if you use their triggers in other rifles and are spoiled with the glass like break. I put the super scar between the SDC and (E) with the second stage being closer to the (E).

And how do you like the Bobro scope mount? I got one in a SS 1-4 group buy package thing and I gata wait 2 weeks for it to be in stock again. Everything that I've read about it says that its the best QD mount out there.

of course an Elcan SpecterDR

docsmileyface
05-26-2011, 9:54 PM
The Elcan Specter DR has been made in 7.62 in FDE - its called the SU-230A. Extremely rare to find in civilian hands, all of them have gone to SOCOM. The SU-230 PVS is the 5.56 one and they are available in very limited numbers because SOCOM cancelled the SCAR Mk 16 procurement and don't need as many now. The left overs got released to the open market.

You can find them at a bunch of places, I used parallax tactical. The mag blocks were made by a guy out of state.

It's on par with other rifles in it's class, you don't need to go out and get a high end optic right off the bat or go all out and outfit it.

05-26-2011, 11:33 PM
My dealer have both of them in stock and quoted me at $2200 and $2800 respectively.

Still $200 to $300 less than seven months ago.

05-26-2011, 11:56 PM
Beautiful battle axe you got there!


I remember when the Sig556 and ACR came out. They were ridiculously high in price. It took about 2-3 years for them both to level off on the newness.
I don't think the Scar17 will ever be under $2200-$2500 used in the years to come.
The SCAR16's will eventually drop to $1500 or so in the used market.
Of course my fingers are crossed!!!
I don't buy new and don't pay new prices for used, so I will wait a year or so.

I suppose the price the op listed was for the whole package? I thought these were in the $2200-$3000 range.

More in the $2700-$3200 range but yes someone wanted to know the final damage. The nightforce package alone is around $1800 so most of the additional cost is up there. I paid $3010 after all the fees for just the rifle which is on par with the average.

Shoot 7.62? Weigh like 4 pounds lighter than all the AR-10's out there? Deposits all of its carbon to the front of the gas block instead of directly into the bolt? Completely ambidextrous controls? I dunno.

FTF in GA could happen (I'm just west of Atlanta). The cash part is where I'm lacking...

I've traded firearms using www.theoutdoorstrader.com You might be able to find some luck there.

Bingo. I know it is not cheap but it is still a deal for the buyer. If someone bought the rifle at asking and sold all the extras in the marketplace, they would make out nice. I am also open to offers, but I may take the time and sell the extras off myself.

simple solution to your problems,

- post it for sale for 10k

let it float (and keep bumping it for a few weeks)

after it clearly has not sold (well... I guess crazier things have happened) go back and edit the original post to reflect a realistic asking price, take a screen shot of it and show it to your wife and tell her you tried, but the market is just really bad right now



Did I mention Im single? Maybe you shouldnt listen to me :D

Congrats to you OP. Damn, she really is a thing of beauty. Once I can justify spending that much cash, I would have to try EXTREMELY hard not to splurge and pick one up.

This is basically a "Grats" thread, in the same vein of "Hey, I just bought a $400,000 Lamborghini" or "Hey I just f•cked Bar Refaeli (http://brosome.com/it%E2%80%99s-a-bar-refaeli-swimsuit-bonanza/bar-refaeli-si-2008-1/)." Everybody's jealous any way you cut it.

--Inq

What I would really like to see, is a "I was caught on video, in a high-speed police chase, in my new $400,000 Lamborghini Convertible, while getting a BJ from Bar Refaeli, and shooting my SCAR17!" thread. :D

I dont think people are reading this whole thread, the gun is for sale now!

btw, your exact car chase scenario video happened to me, but my lambo is a hardtop, so I didnt post the video

Ughhhhh.. Just noticed, and came back to edit it before anyone saw. Thanks for quoting me and blowing my cover, Plink! :D

Funny thing is, I did read the whole thread, but thought it was someone else selling theirs, not the OP... but when I went to check the F/S thread, I saw that it was actually the OP's rifle. D'oh! hahahaha

Good one but I really need to try an sell this. I haven't got any bites at all so maybe the market is bad. The funny thing is when one is available no one wants one but when one is not everyone is looking. it took me 4 months to get this!

Wow, very surprised you're selling already. If it was FDE, I'd be looking to sell one of my kidneys or something.

That is... unless you unfortunately parted with that too... then :mad:

Black is more accurate, FDEs are made in a different plant with bad QC.

Scar 17s are hard to find. I was going to sell mine but it is out of most people's budget for a plinker. PM me if you are seriously interested.

heh, no not seriously!

I was messing around with sights on my AR pistol, and my SCAR just so happened to be right next to me on the bench, and I just had to do it!

yep, it was just under 10% IIRC
