    Can you post the High-res version of these in the future?

    • King

      I’ll second that.

  • Ryan

    That SCAR looks…awesome? I personally could never handle the mult-i-shades of awesome, it’d drive me nuts.

    • Dave_FM

      FN-style color matching 😀

  • Sam Schifo

    Damn I’d like to have a SCAR.

    • Anonymoose

      I’d like to have an SSR.

      • Zachary marrs

        I’d like to have a beretta arx that isn’t crap!

      I am honestly curious what makes you want a SCAR? Do you have any experience with it?

      • Pedro

        It’s a modern, lightweight, adaptable platform. Very user friendly (watch the bolt) and can do .308

          And Reliable… Didn’t clean my gun for three years except for snaking the barrel. Never had an issue. When I finally cleaned the gas piston it was all gunked up but never stopped working. Oh… In 308 accurate out to 800meters

          But do you have any experience with. I have been issued a MK17 almost 5 years now, and probably half that with a the MK20 and have been responsible for a large amount of them. And I don’t know any body who has been issued one who is fan of it. Probably the kindest thing I ever heard from someone issued it was “At least we got a 7.62 finally.” I just find it interesting that the SCAR has this huge fan base when probably 90% of the people I have worked with are ambivalent or hostile to it.

            I heard the civilian versions arnt having the same problems that the Govt issued ones are having. The one that I got to play with (Govt issued) seemed to work fine though. I’m sort of particular to ARs since thats what I “grew up” with so I dont plan on jumping ship anytime soon.

    Geee.. i sure do love this stupid popup that comes up EVERY TIME
    I CLICK ON ANYTHING! I’m so annoyed I think I’ll go out and buy one right now!

    • Cymond

      agreed, but fwiw it only seems to be sometimes. I have no idea why it pops up sometimes and not others.
      Is it ‘Tracking Point’ for you, too? If they’re not selling enough rifles, I doubt the problem is a lack of market awareness. It probably has something to do with the price tag.

      • Giolli Joker

        Tracking Point for me as well… they’re losing points of sympathy from me every time I get a pop-up… or a TFB email marketing them.

        Great photo, love the SCAR!

      • USMC03Vet

        I’m pretty sure it’s from Second Media. Ghostery can nuke it.

    • USMC03Vet

      Don’t forget the 13 trackers either.

      Trying to browse the web these days without ghostery and adblock is rough.

    11.5″ is best .5″.

  • Jeff Smith

    Sir, you have made me jealous.

  • kayakjeff

    I’ve been on the range in Shindand when the guys from Thomas where out shooting an assault course with a silenced SCAR. Never knew how quickly they could assault and shoot until I picked one up and realized how lite that gun is!
