    Is it worth paying double the price of an AR for the SCAR?
  2. 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.

    I got two AR-15s, fun, cheap to shoot and great weapons for when SHTF. :)

    What can I say? Get an AR!

    I almost bought the SCAR in 5.56 in 2011. I decided to save my money and buy an LMT 5.56 and a Remington 870 and some ammo for the same price as the SCAR. I would like to have a SCAR but I can't justify the expense.
  5. 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. :p

    Nope. :cool:

    The SCAR is nice, but not at twice the price! If they were the same price...we might be telling a different story. The SCARs look badass. What's the saying? "Chicks dig scars, but I'll keep my two ARs!"

    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.

  8. I could be wrong but I think the only advantage of the SCAR was that it is lighter then your normal M4.

    I would much rather buy 2x AR's ;) Cost of ammo should mean alot unless you have money like that.

    Fn scar feels cheap to me in my opinion it's the hollow folding stock I would flick it with my finger and it just feels like a toy to me... Plus the cost never did it for me I came close to getting the scar but bought a Daniel Defense m4v7 and couldn't be happier with my decision. But hey it's your preference if the scar feels right to you get it I'm sure you won't be disappointed with it.
