          "Threaten great change." It's just a rifle. There are many like it, and there will be many more. These people fly around in helicopters and call in air strikes. The spend of a rifle is fricking miniscule compared to total military spend.

          It separates fools from their money much better than most AR's.

          FA is useful. I've had to use it before when my rifle didn't go all the way into battery. No big deal, just press the button.
          The SCAR CH is just a shit idea and it isn't executed well, either. Even if it doesn't reciprocate it's in the perfect position to smash fingers on optic mounts.

        Presumably because they wanted the charging handle to double as a forward assist so the gun could be beat into battery like an AK

          Except that at least one other entrant in the SCAR competition had a non-reciprocating charging handle that doubled as a forward assist. Yet they chose the reciprocating entry.

      Eh...charging is really the only place its ergos are that different, and while I dig side charging the distance between SCAR handles and pretty much anything mounted on the pic rail is fricking zilch and I regularly knock the skin off my knuckles.

      >Better heat management
      Nah. Maybe suppressed, just by being DI, but with low backpressure cans this is a non-issue for anything other than sustained FA.

      >More reliable feeding system.
      Sure. Much better bolt design. It does need some work to be reliable suppressed, either a jet change or a more adjustable port like a KNS discarder.

        It's pretty obvious that the military and already decided that FN would be the winner, it didn't really matter what Robinson did or didn't do. Even if he'd packed everything in the one box, they'd have just "missed" something when they inventoried it and DQ'd him anyway. Not that it matters, the early XCR wasn't as good as the early SCAR and probably would have lost even a fair competition. The XCR really only shone later on as Robinson kept improving it year after year, while FN stagnated.

      If you are using this rifle to fight enemies, you have an armorer who will repair it, no need to return to FN for warranty work

      >more cracky plastic
      I thought we went through this when Glock came out, but reinforced polymers have excellent service history when used for appropriate components in firearms. Armalite took advantage of polymer advancements with the AR-180B lower.

      >reciprocating charging handle
      This was a procurement brainfart. Once the rifle got into the hands of actual operators, no one liked it but it was too late by then. Fortunately for we civs, non-recipe versions abound.

      >better at killing optics
      That reputation is a wives tale. Like any heavy semi it will break walmart optics but that is more a you problem. Don't put cheap stuff on a serous rifle, there are shitloads of good stuff, Chink made included, that holds up fine on a SCAR.

    why is the reciprocating charging handle such a big issue other than the fact that it punishes you for moronic hand placement? you guys always undermine your argument by b***hing over nothing when there are real issues to be addressed, like the fact you're letting FN bend you over and bully your prostate by paying $4000 for an extruded aluminum and injection-molded plastic rifle, and no matter how much disposable income you have you are still a paypig cuck for paying that price for a rifle

      Not so much the fact that it's reciprocating, but the shitty placement of it.
      You can hardly put your thumb behind a FNC or Ak bolt handle, on the Scar it's almost automatic.

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      The charging handle on both SCAR is poorly placed. Too close to the pic rail so just using it puts your hand uncomfortably close to anything you have mounted up there.
      As for the RCH part, it was a dumb idea added to the requirements by desk sitters. Probably to exclude AR designs but also because they thought it somehow added to the AK's reliability.

      As far as your attempt to to refocus the conversation on gay sex, the major thing the breaks your analogy is that buying a SCAR does not involve homosexual sex in any way at all.

    • 3 weeks ago

      FN charges that much because they know gun guys are macho homosexuals who will spend a ton of money on overhyped crap just to flex on other men. If you see a guy with a SCAR, you automatically know he has "frick you" money and is therefore better than you. It's the same reason yuppies buy BMWs and boomers buy Corvettes.

                The ergonomics of those things are awful. Used to have the shitty Century clone, and the HK slap was cool, but not cool enough to make up for not having a last round bolt hold open, especially not if you shot it alot. I would rather have it with wood furniture and iron sights than try to compete with ARs and SCARs.
                >if these threads bother you so much, maybe you should just not reply to them lol
                Because these threads get made every few days for years or decades, and if no one calls it out, eventually new users will think that it's because this is the board's general consensus. I don't want discussion here to be dominated by people b***hing about guns they don't own and most likely have never shot; I managed to get somewhat decent advise here back in the day. Go look at /misc/ to see where cedeing space to morons and shitposters gets you.
