    Default Fn scar 17 .308

    Has anyone here had their hands on one yet? Is there a dealer in the state? What mags will it accept? Cost? From what I've read on it, it seems like a pretty sturdy platform, any thoughts? Would it be too early for a purchase what with teething issues and such?

    It's a dead sexy piece of hardware. However, if I recall my American Rifleman correctly, the price was in the $2400+ range for the .223 version. A little steep in my opinion.

    A quick look online looks like they are pushing the $3200 level...

    I've been drooling over them ever since I set eyes on em va the inter webs. $3200- $4000 does seem a bit steep but...
    Wildalaska- will you let me know when one comes in I sure would like to check it out, I'm really more interested in the .308/7.62 version though. What did you think of them, say compared to an AR? Its an FN so I'm guessing fit and finish was impecable, yes.
