I thought some folks might appreciate seeing the SCAR 17 and SCAR 16 compared/contrasted in the same video. I'm hard pressed to say which is my "favorite" but each has its own unique characteristics when shooting it. In this video I have various shooting sequences, from various angles, with slow motion and simulated full auto, so you can see them both being shot. Enjoy.

QUESTION: For those of you who own and shoot both I'd like to hear your thoughts comparing/contrasting them.

If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for those SCARs?
Do you know how much FN charges for them? And what is a good retail price from a dealer?

There were 3 (2 SCAR 16s, 1 SCAR 17) in my local gun stores. One guy was selling a 16 for $2,200. The other guy is selling a 16 for $2,300 and a 17 for $2,700.

I think the guy selling a 17 for $2,700 is a complete rip off.

Hi USS, fortunately....I bought each before the "crazy" hit the marketplace.

I got the SCAR 17 for $2,650
The SCAR 16 I got for $2,000 flat with extra mags. It was purchased from a guy who just put a few mags through it and decided to get rid of it.

If you found a LGS selling the SCARs for that price...they were GOOD prices!

Bet they won't be there for long.

Well, the guy who was selling the one SCAR16 sold it awhile back. I dropped by the store I do not like, and he has raised the prices: $3299 for a SCAR17 and $2659 for SCAR16. I may end up trading my Mini14 towards it.... I'll just have to wait and see.
