FN SCAR 17 vs. MEGA AR-10: .308 Shootout @ 600 Yards (Review / Field Test)

We here at TBP are all about putting weapon systems head-to-head for an all out war of who will reign supreme... today we have our first ever "VS." review: the highly adaptable FN SCAR 17S vs. the Cadillac of AR-10's, the MEGA Arms MA-TEN. These two popular rifles chambered in .308 (7.62x51mm) are put to the test for accuracy, comfort, reliability, ruggedness, and adaptability. We put a 1/2" thick steel plate out at 600+ yards and take turns on both weapon systems and give you our overall thoughts and opinions in regards to both of these stellar firearms and which one would serve it's owner better (including our thoughts on the optics). We go prone for this shootout on top of one of our TBP - mobiles: an M1009 Blazer (used military model). However, please bear in mind... it is 100% dependent on the person firing the weapon as well as the situation, mission, desired goal, etc., in regards to overall preference of either of these platforms. Anyway, we love to throw some .308 around, and this review gave us a great excuse to do just that! So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the review.

Автор Rufus Shipman (3 месяца)
I don't really care as long as it doesn't fail. Either one is great but,
the ar10 does need a few mods before being as reliable as the scar. The
ar10 can be as reliable as the scar given the right mods.

The last shooter definitely lacks experience. Not once did I see him follow
through with any of his shots.

As far as comparing the two rifles alongside each other; they are both
excellent. But the biggest separation is the durability of the FN SCAR. Run
the frog test on both of these weapon systems and see what happens to the

Someone's trigger reset was pretty bad. It was almost like he wanted to
get back off of the trigger as soon as it broke. It's hard to take a
review seriously if the shooter demonstrates lack of follow-through.
Example @ 6:12 = bad technique. He did improve it on a couple of shots.

I have no room to judge... But comparing a MODDED AR 10 to any stock weapon
7.63 weapon system is not really an accurate comparison.. Compare stock to
stock to get a complete accurate weapons comparison..

A rifle with a mediocre barrel can be shot well if it's fed ammo that it
likes and has a decent trigger.

Neither of those topics were covered. Good gunporn anyway...

Автор rkwjunior (5 месяцев)
I don't think this is an accurate accuracy test, The AR-10 has a match
barrel and JP internals, the SCAR is stock, they should have used a Factory
AR-10, not custom. This says a lot for the SCAR.

In a SHTF scenario i'd take the SCAR, runs like a sewing machine.

Автор yd4330 (3 месяца)
+1 on Ross comment. Terrible trigger control and reset. I expected a
comptent shooter for a proper review for long range work. And everyone
knows the first thing you buy is a super scar trigger. Doesn't matter how
much money you spens on glass if you don't have match trigger and don't
know how to use it properly. 

Автор E SIALOI (5 месяцев)
Scar17's are nice but at 3k a pop is pretty steep for most and that's about
the only negative I can say. The positives far outweighs the negatives.
When it comes down to accuracy and reliability out of the box it is
unbelievable but compared to an AR10 it isn't really fair because the AR
platform has been around for 57 years. It has evolved and has been
perfected by precision manufacturer's worldwide. FNH has developed a
shorter barrel and manufacturer's will start developing after market parts
as the rifle gains popularity and higher demands for the SCAR's 16 and 17's
platforms. Overall it is a very light, durable and dependable weapons
system that packs a mean punch with the .308 round..Can you ask for more in
a compact design that allows the operator to disassemble and maintain with
a few simple functions. Hope you enjoy and..
Thanks for reading..

While the SCAR may be light compared to most commercially produced
AR10/LR308 type rifles, it is still over 9lbs scoped. Why not build
something more sleek and handy, while also shooting for lighter recoil with
an LMOS BCG, adjustable gas block, and good brake? I'm not taking it into
battle, so the perceived reduction in reliability will be a non-issue.

Автор bob g (11 месяцев)
did you have a geissele superscar trigger on the 17? It's commonly known
that the purchase of a scar means that you immediately install a superscar,
especially if your going to be doing long range work. It's 200% better, at
least. Transforms the gun.

Автор flspy (4 месяца)
One more advantage- SCAR 17 shoots .308 with low recoil. A big cartridge
that shoots soft is a major advantage

Автор akg 102 (5 месяцев)
I currently have a SCAR17 and am starting a Mega MATEN MKM build. I've
calculated the weight of all of the parts and it should come in at ~112.45
ounces. That's almost 15oz lighter than the 17. Granted, the cost is going
to be about 10% higher than the 17, but the weight savings should be worth
it. It's tough to predict accuracy, but it will have a Proof Research heavy
16" carbon fiber barrel; it should be more accurate than the SCAR over the
duration of firing.

Finally some people tests assault rifles for the real purpose that they
made for! Most try assault rifles for the distances less than 150
meters/yards but for that range just a MP-5 works perfect, you do not need
any thing more than that! I wish you should also have an AK-47/74 and good
old G-3 to compare with those! As you see, new assault rifles coming out
with less rpm, more accuracy, longer distance, more power etc. compare to
M-4 (as it seen in Afghanistan 7.62 with low rpm works better in battle
field). SCAR 17 is a good example for that! In my own experience G-3 is the
best battle weapon so far, cannot handle dust, mud water ect. as good as
AK, also very heavy but still very accurate and shoot/damages like a
cannon! If you have G-3, MP-5 and M9 Beretta and few hand grenade on you,
battle field is yours! You do not need anything else more than that.

These rifles have some major differences, for a head to head comparison.
1) Barrels - The AR10 has a heavier barrel and is match grade. I didn't
hear what length it was. The SCAR generally comes with a 16" barrel. If
the AR10 has a longer barrel, ballistics would be different. 2) Weight -
Less weight usually means more recoil. Which this test was a table top. 3)
Gas vs. Piston operating system. Gas systems are inherently more accurate
than piston.

Nice review, but I think for an "all out war" review of a battle
rifle should of been done while 1) shooting in the prone and off hand 2)
single shots and rapid fire 3) shooting on the move. That is what a battle
rifle is about (besides throwing some sand and water in the chamber
area). It would have been a ball watching this review of you guys try to
hit the target and trying to control that AR10 while rapid firing. I know
my SCAR-17s gets pretty boring rapid firing while holding on target. Its
that good.
The AR10 was customized for long range shooting in the prone with the match
barrel, chamber, trigger and stock.This should have been compared to the
SSR. But to even things a little put a Timney or Geissele trigger in the
SCAR and you have a sub MOA battle rifle. Add a VLTOR SCAR stock adapter
with and a Magpul PSR stock you got yourself a sub 1/2 MOA semi auto sniper
rifle. Load up some 150 grain SMK, 42.5gr varget, lapua brass with federal
match primers and you're at 1/4' MOA easy. Anyways it still was a pretty
good review keep them coming.
