    After talking with Armament Technologies and FN, the problem seems to be the rail on SCAR. I put the SpecterDr on the FN tactical forend extension and it fit perfectly, no movement. Now I have to deal with the headache of swapping out rifles. Here in Michigan I have to register the SCAR as a pistol because of the folding stock, so I have to go through an FFL Dealer. I wish FN didn't put the serial number on the upper receiver, but oh well. I just thought I would let you guys know what I found out. Also after talking with AT, they are in the process of changing the mounting system for the SpecterDr. I also found out for a small fee ARMS will put an adjustable mount on the SpecterDr if you ship it too them.
    GULL thanked this.

    Good to know in case I ever run into this problem with my ELCAN.

    While it is a headache for you to deal with swapping out a rifle, your issue will be resolved.


    I think one of these days I might drive over to A.R.M.S.

    Expand on this, please.

    I'm reading it like this:

    If you have a pistol that is defective and you reside in MI, you send the weapon into the manufacturer under warranty and the manufacturer elects to replace the entire weapon. Does the manufacturer then send the replacement weapon to an FFL holder and you have to fill out another 4473?

    Yes that is correct. Because if ur new pistol has a new serial number, it has to be registered. This is a pain for me because I purchased the SCAR through the only LE dealer in the US which is in Kansas. It was worth the effort because it saved me about seven hundred dollars. It would not of been to bad if I would have purchased the rifle locally, it's an easy swap.

    I did think about doing this, but when you pay 2K for a rifle you expect it to be up to standards (or above)!! I just hope the new one I receive is going to be good to go, or I am going to get a refund and look elsewhere!! I should not have to settle on a subpar product.

    What is preventing you from going to the Local FFL, to have them send it to FNH, to have them take care of you???

    First things first:

    1) Call FNH USA repair in Arnold MO. and explain you want them to check the weapon.

    2) Call the dealer that did the transfer in MI. and explain that he'll be booking in the weapon from you and sending it to Arnold on your behalf.

    3) The weapon is repaired/replaced and shipped back to your local FFL.

    4) You're tired of the hoops you had to jump through but you're happy the issue was resolved.

    One question: Do you have a set of high quality dial calipers?
