I've never shot an AR-15, but I have shot the SCAR and I can say the SCAR is nice! But, the SCAR is a little pricey to shoot with the 7.62x51. Not sure if they come in different calibers. If your looking to shoot cheap, I say get the AR. JMO.Is it worth paying double the price of an AR for the SCAR?
Same here! One of these days I would love to have the SCAR in the 7.62 round but there are a lot of cheaper firearms on my list to get first. Hopefully one day I'll have a SCAR. A .308 AR is a cheaper, until the cost of ammo comes into play........... I would like to have a SCAR but I can't justify the expense.
Nope.Is it worth paying double the price of an AR for the SCAR?
I've heard the military thought the same thing. Wasn't such an advance to warrant replacement of the M4. AR15's can be bought or modified in so many configurations It's your best bang for the buck.
Until the plasma rifles in a 30 watt range come out I'll stick with the AR and AK.
