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.

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.

Автор bob g (4 месяца)
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 Ross Jacobs (1 месяц)
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.

You didn't mention how the stock FN trigger feel was. I shot a 17S last
week and I did not like the trigger at all. Also, in your own video it sure
seemed like the AR was getting more hits on target. Where you using the
same ammo? What did you use?

and thought it would be a better buy. I have a M1A I am sending to
springfield to have some work done to it but I thought about seeling both
of those to pay for the SCAR and get extra parts. Just curiuos? thanks.

Good job. Nice Video. My 2 cents.. you guys have to do better camera work,
if you want to be semi-professional. Like some of your shots, just a
little off. Maybe one more camera, or a better editor. Either way, good
job.... for just some guys, having fun.

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.

Автор Clvmind (19 дней)
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.

This is a better comparison, but with the stock obviously you can change
that with a few minutes, another thing i noticed is that that is the mid
range scar 17 they make a longer one that is much more accuarate plus it
seemed like the ar-10 had a lot of aftermarket parts which even with that
still two out of three chose the scar

Автор ruststar (7 месяцев)
Thanx for the review guys, you should work on a better prone position,
supporting the mag with the weak hand adds nothing to the stability of the
position since that is what the bipod is doing, you need to support the
buttstock by squeezing a bag underneath it.
