Hi, I wanted to purchase an FN SCAR 16S but I have heared mixed reports from various sources. My cousin who is in SOCOM told me his unit hated them mainly because the stock would break all the time. They switched back to Colt m4's becasue the buffer tube is heavy duty. Tehy also hated the front sights on this rifle. I have been wanting one for a year now and have the funds to get one but I have been having second thoughts now, and maybe waiting for the Rem ACR instead would be a better idea, I know three people who sold there SCARS a week after getting them. So are they worth buying or should I wait for the ACR.
Are the stocks really that cheap? and does the rifle overall feel flimsy?
