    Hey all, got my first SCAR. Hope everyone enjoys it. I have a Blue Force Gear Vickers sling in Kryptic, but waiting on my rear QD mount from PMM to arrive. Also got FDE translucent Lancer mags coming Monday.

    Upgrades/Mods: Timney trigger, PWS rail extension, Harris/Larue 9-13" bipod, Stryker charging handle, BCM Mod 3 fore-grip, Handl Mod 2 Magnesium lower, Handl extended mag release, stainless piston jets, SureFire muzzle brake, SureFire 7.62 Mini suppressor, BoBro 34mm QD mount, Nightforce 1-4x24mm optic.

    Kryptic Mandrake coating was done by Mike, at Mile High Shooting in Erie, CO.

    Sounds about like a 22lr, and couldn't be happier. Love my 300blk SBR, but it has its place (Thick woods, short range).

    Ittl be a better 17 once you get rid of the now Defunct Handl Defense gimmicks.

    Thanks for the warm welcome, all!

    As for the Handl Defense.. Yeah I friend installed that prior to me buying it, it works or me, so I'll use it, till I have issues. Not gonna fix what isn't broken. Maybe I'll find a used factory trigger control for cheaper than $400 or so.

    That stock hinge is going to cause you issues shooting suppressed. The gun was never designed for a metal stock hinge to be used. The polymer hinge absorbs the energy of the bolt carrier. I really don't care what Handl Defenses CEO says, its detrimental to the gun and increases the stresses on both the backplate and the barrel extension.
