FN SCAR PR vs LT762...

Time will tell. I refuse to speculate until it hits the floor, however being it's an FN and they dared to put PR in the designator, I'm going to bet it's good. It will be close...

I was really hoping that this would come with the Mk 20 stock ;(

Looks like I'll be saving for the MR762.

Scar 16 was well balanced, lighter than it looked. This one will be front heavy with the long heavy barrel and light weight stock in the back.

Under 10lbs with a heavy barrel and huge rail sounds like a win to me

An AR-10 will outperform it, especially in the MSRP :P

Add a good bipod and scope, what 12.5 pounds before the magazine is in? It's likely a pound under most semi-auto precision rifles. Nice platform. It'll be $$$, bet your arse on it.

well, when they were talking about a Mk20 civi model (which this seems very similar to, minus the stock) rumor mill had it between 6 - 8k

I'll take the 17 anyday over any legacy platform rifle in this caliber (save for maybe a PSG, but thats a different story) but I must admit if its going to be 6k plus range, the bang for your buck just isnt there.

Still looks awesome though

If it really is in that price range I'd like to see what your really getting for that extra 3.5-5 grand. I've heard the 17 gets 3/4 MOA all day with match ammo what do you think Plink you have one is that true. At the low end of that price spectrum you could get a 17 a Geissele trigger, PWS rail, and a S&B scope and be GTG minus 4 extra inches of barrel and the profile.

Ive gotten groups that were just under moa with match ammo. Just barely,

BUT

Now let me add, that this was with a aimpoint m4 with a 2.5x magnifier, not exactly the best optics set up to do it. Getting that dot to sit in exactly the same place is no easy task, esp considering I was really taking my time between shots and doing my absolute best (at least it felt like I was!)

I should also add, that Im a crap shot with no formal instruction on the matter, and Im probably about two ticks above legally blind. So considering all those factors, Im sure it could come down even more.

Short of the long of it is that it is very impressive considering it really isnt intended to for that kind of use.

My semi-long term goal (maybe by the end of the year time and cash willing) is to get into reloading and put at least a 4x optic on it.

Of course my absolute long term "dream" would be to get a spare barrel assembly, chop it down a bit and perma pin the AAC to it for more a CQB set up.

UPDATE: The novelty of the Rogue bullpup conversion wore off pretty fast and I sold it.


The 17 doesn't make me want to replace any of my MK14s, but I wouldn't mind owning one.

I'll take my MK14 Mod 0 type SEI Rogue bullpup conversion over that 17.
Weight and accuracy are about the same and my 28+1/4" OAL is much more compact.

your FCG is not as reliable, and has a heavier trigger pull and mag changes take longer.

Of course, we have mag locks here so I guess you still win :facepalm:

Don't even attempt to change h20man's view of M1A vs anything else if you look up fanboy in Wikipedia his avatar comes up.

Does this use standard Fal mags?

no (wish they did)

the SCAR 17 mag is def based on the FAL magazine, and is very similar but they are not interchangeable. Though some have modified FAL mags to work with the SCAR, I understand the conversions are not 100% reliable

UPDATE: The FCG is reliable, but the feel is not what I want and mag changes are very slow.

I don't have a problem with the SCAR in .308, but it won't perform better than the enhanced M14s that I already own.

If I didn't have what I have, I would consider buying variants of the .308 SCAR.

Dont have the 17S, but do have the 16S, it's funny, with such a thin barrel, my 16S was the only piston design rifle to acheive half MOA compared with LWRC M6A3, POF, etc..., the stock is actually very functional and comfortable. Gun was mated to a NF 5.5-22 NP-R2 NXS/LT-104 in solid rest. I bet the 17S would be in the same accuracy category as the LMT MWS as it incorporate the same design

The look of a bullpup M14 takes some getting used to and I do think the SAGE EBR is a better looking package.

FN needs a PRS style stock. I like it though. Could sway me from getting a 17S to this one next year.
