    Few if any fit without modification. You have to mill out the upper rear. I like the Magpul Miad, so I just bought one that was already milled out my Parker Mountain Machine to save myself the headache.

    You can make a slight modification to the SCAR lower so that it will accept AR grips. I'm sure someone here has a thread on it. Or try a net search for a how-to vid. Unless you plan on changing grips often, I'd just modify an AR grip with a dremel or do like Tek74 did and buy one from PMM that is already to go.

    Many have successfully modified their Scar lower, but I did not have the guts to do that permanent mod on such a high dollar rifle. The 1% chance of screwing it up deterred me.

    I modified both my 17 and 20 lowers to take whatever grips I want. Bout a five minute or so Dremel session for each if you have a steady hand.
    Stay out of my bedroom, bathroom, wallet and gun safe and we'll probably get along much better.
