    Muzzle brake

    So I see there are other options for a muzzle brake for the scar 17s. However I don't think its too bad now but then, I am comparing it to my 338 lapua, which is about the same as the scar, due to its brake. Anyway, if the is one that is better than the stock, and its easily seen, which one is it? I have a timney trigger, different firing pin, the vortex viper red dot and another vortex scope, plus other crap on the way so I will do more shooting once its all here and together.

    Thanks

    Shorter lock time equals better accuracy. The guys at hi desert dog make this.

    Better accuracy...

    I'll say "better accuracy" is better achieved through shooting as opposed to swapping firing pins in the SCAR. I have yet to see any published data supporting the claim that installing a lighter firing pin in the SCAR platform equates to a measureable difference in accuracy.

    The Surefire muzzle brake is very effective in muzzle stabilization, and in reducing felt recoil.

    The stock PWS style brake works great and produces a very light recoil. Many rifles need many things changed to make them more functional but my SCAR 17 only needed a good trigger and quality optic to make it near perfect. If you have the money and a compulsion to personalize it the take it in for a custom Ceracoat job.

    Could you explain this a little more? I am not sure that I understand how changing a firing pin will shorten lock time or influence accuracy. It is a new one on me.

    The lighter weight firing pin is supposed to reduce lock time (lower mass). However, even if measured, it would be so minute that it doesn't actually effect accuracy. I think the aftermarket trigger would be the upgrade to get.

    What does your 338 weigh?
