    From California - I joined the brotherhood of FN

    Good day! I wanted my first post to be a fitting introduction:

    I recently took delivery of a Kalifornia-rized SCAR 16s in FDE. I have familiarized myself with the manual of arms and disassembled/reassembled the rifle five times to get the hang of it. I plan to get familiar with the rifle in its stock form for about 500 rounds and make a decision with regard to certain changes that I've read about in these forums.

    I have been shooting for the past 5 years (mostly pistols) and 2014 is the year of the rifle for me. This is my first high powered rifle, with the other being a S&W M&P 15-22 ME FDE.

    Wishing everyone the best,
    Domino

    Thank you very much for the tip regarding the PMag - it came with the rifle and it's the only Gen 2 magazine I have - I'll pass by my LGS where I got it and request for them to swap it out for a Gen 3. When disassembling the rifle, I checked the bolt and there wasn't the chipping seen in other threads. One thing I noticed on the trigger assembly and the lower was that there was white grease (possibly from the factory) as well as well lubed retaining pins:
