Re: Timney trigger or Geissele Super Scar for the 17 S?

Have tested both on a 17S. Prefer the SupserSCAR Geissele trigger. Although Shooting Sight now offers a SCAR trigger that is a two stage and definitely worth researching before you make your final commitment. Many thanks for throwing this option on my radar. I'll start researching it right away. :t...

2. Are you looking for a single stage or 2 stage trigger?
On all of my ARs I use a dual stage, oddly enough I was thinking single stage on this rifle. I was thinking it was designed more for reactive shooting vs. precision, if that make sense?

Timney trigger or Geissele Super Scar for the 17 S?

I'm on the fence on which trigger to purchase. I've read some issues with the Timney and with the recent price increase on the Timney's to $309 make it a short bump to go with the Geissele Super Scar Trigger. I could sure use anyone's input that has traveled this path already.

A tip for marking your brass

When I'm ground hog hunting, I usually reload when my box of 50 gets low. There's always a few left and I keep pretty good records of how many times I've reloaded my brass. So I take a sharpie and color in the notch at the base of the brass to tell which brass hasn't been reloaded with the last batc...

Re: Pocket handgun for coyotes?

FWIW, I have had nothing but great experiences with P22. Feeds as much ammo as MkII does. No problems with wear. My sister has one, I own one, my dad has one. I have to agree with this statement. About 5,000 rounds through mine and not a single issue. Super fun to shoot and not too bad on the accur...

Re: FnH SCAR 17s Heavy review.

This is a very nice weapon. How is the recoil? Is rapid fire and accuracy easy to achieve or to maintain? The recoil "to me" is just a tad more than shooting AR-15 .223. Shooting 50 to 100 rounds and walking away without a sore shoulder is no problem. Rapid fire and accuracy are an oxymoron for me....
