    Can't really feel much of a difference, however adding a rail extension would probably make a difference in balance.

    I would agree. For me the 17 is more of a range toy than my primary defensive rifle and having some extra cash burning a hole in my pocket and saying why not. But now the thought of picking up a 2nd SCAR and having one set up with this barrel as a target rifle and the other as a battle rifle is becoming rather appealing.

    C'mon guys, you can do it! Post up some range results! Interested to see some groups and hopefully, someone can get this behind a chrono so we can get an idea of the MV increase over the stock 16".

    Ive been watching for one to pop up on the LE program, or to find someone selling a barrel-less Scar 17 so I can build a 20 inch... but no such luck, and I cant justify a $4500 investment knowing I can have any other 20 inch precision semi auto for the same money or less.

    I'm still waiting on my 20" or I'd have taken it out already.

    Well I bit the bullet and ordered one of these. Thanks STL for the heads up. Figure it'll be good for hunting and prairie dogs. ETA: Just told my wife I'm commandeering her 17S for my 16" barrel needs, she was good with it when I told her the SBR LAR PDS will become hers. Thank God, that could have become ugly:<>:

    I'm betting we'll see 25-50fps gain per inch. I'm hoping for a 150fps increase myself.
