I was in the US Army Infantry, I have shot my share of combat rifles. When I was serving I had heard of the SCAR from movies and games, never had the opertunity to shoot one. I also hunt Elk, Deer, Antelope, etc, etc... In other words, I have shot alot of guns. The power behind the SCAR is amazing! Its recoil is similar to the M4 civi version "Colt" AR-15. I dropped an Elk at 200+ yards with my SCAR, one shot. This Battle Rifle is worth EVERY cent! if you only had the money to own one rifle for the rest of your life, make it the SCAR 17S, I put an Elcan Specter DR 1-4x on mine. Its the sexiest Gun youll ever own, men wanna shoot it, women are afraid to shoot it. I love it, not one person I have let shoot my SCAR ever regretted it. I picked mine up for 3k, Dont spend more than that! If you can find this Rifle for less than 3k, buy it! Make sure you put a good scope on it, these bastards eat scopes for breakfest, if you dont invest in a nice scope, dont bother putting one on. Leopold or Elcan, my recomendation.
