Does anyone know if any shops in California has one in stock?

Thanks!

I think Mount Pleasant Arms in San Jose has one. They deal in those regularly.

see their banner on the top of Calguns page.

If they got one, snatch it. FNH is commiting all 17 fde production to military now because they dropped the 16 contract and extended the 17.

Try searching for it out of state. If they break down the upper and lower they can ship it to your ffl and you can buy the parts to mod it for cali legal.

check from time to time for deals.. The FDE sells the moment they get posted.

check here for a bit.

not true, SOCOM canceled additional mk16 orders, HOWEVER the Navy has ordered the mk16, ml17, AND mk20

but yes, they are not easy to find, esp in FDE.

SCAR17? What a horrible rifle. I mean 308 out of a 16' barrel is just absurd! JK...congrats!

Arkangel,

Too much and bought it at wild Bill's in Elk Grove. They had a black one left.

Just got mine this week, $1700 off FN Forums. 100 rounds through it, had upper sent to my FFL since that's the firearm on SCARS and had the lower mailed to me.

Had my eotech ready to be mounted, waiting on some bulk ammo to arrive.

1700 is a steal.

From the looks of it, his rifle is a SCAR 16 though, not a SCAR 17

I was at Triple A Sporting Goods in Vallejo picking up my rifle around the mid of March, they had an FDE 17 there, it may or may not be there still.

yeah. but 1700 is still extremely low for a 16. I paid 2100 for a private party new one. and thats normally the range for 100 and under rounds.

Everything they sell is expensive/marked up than most shops, that's just the honest truth. I can assume its because of the location there in, staff is awesome though!

I heard they wanted like 4200 or something absurd for it.

$4200??? Thats crazy! If anyone is interested TDS in Rocklin has a FDE 17S for $2995.

Better jump on it cuz thats the last one I found.

These SCARs look sooooooooo much better with the extended hand guard from PWS. I almost picked up one of these a few weeks ago. I will get one in the future for sure though. Hopefully Magpul has a different buttstock like they do for the ACR out by then.

I have a Scar 17 black, 5 magazines (permenantly modded to 10 rounds) Geissele Super Scar trigger, extended rail, Bobro Gen 3 bipod, Viltor CH & stock latch, 2.5x10 NF scope mounted in a Bobro mount with a quick lever. I put 100 rounds through it and it is by far my prized item in my collection but I would be willing to let it go for the right price. OP congrats and Animosity, you got a steal at $1700 for your 16.

I am now looking for a 17s as well in FDE! Anyone have a lead in CA or out of state?

Thanks

Congrats. I'm assuming you got a 17. Now you've just joined the club of, "Where do I get magazines?" Its a little easier than it was to get SCAR 17 mags, but still a pain.

Have fun with your new blaster.

Don't go to turners... Been on a wait for 6 months now and recently went in to "check-up" and they said it could be another 3-6 more months...

If you find some let me know!!!

Scottsbad,

Yeah the mag situation is crazy. Luckily, the LGS where I bought my SCAR had another FDE mag. I snatched that up as soon as I bought the rifle.

Been emailing vendors in other states and even though they have the mags, they won'sell to kommiefornia.

Oh well at least I have 2.

SCAR = Meh...

Much better gear to be had for the price.

Thanks for the tip but unfortunately they only have a black 17s. So if anyone wants a black 17s...grab it quickly:p
