Discuss the FN lineup of tactical rifles; the FS2000, SCAR, and the venerable FAL.

I've come to the conclusion that there really isn't a perfect all-in-one tactical scope for the SCAR-17.

For me I'm still going with the ACOG 6x48. If the British Marines can use it on the LMT .308, I think I can palate the extra weight on top of a SCAR that will probably never see a day of actual combat.

The Leupold strikes me as just another 25mm toilet paper tube that costs an arm and a leg. But I guess I'll have to look through one to formulate an educated opinion.

How about a SpecterDR with an offset-mounted red-dot sight?

I believe that is how a lot of the SOCOM SCARs were set up.

The Leupy is a solid sight. Good value for sure.

And you can pick one up for a much better price through Leupold's mil discount.
