How does such a soft-shooting 7.62 rifle earn such a reputation? I take our friends at their word when they say their optic got broken on their SCAR but it doesn't make sense to me. I imagine a more forward mount might result in more vertical flip. Maybe some folks don't tighten things well enough.
Just thinking out loud, because the SCAR doesn't tend to beat up the shooters thus shouldn't be beating up the optics.
