Default Fn scar

So I have been saving up for a while now for an FN SCAR 17. I have wanted one since they came out. I am a 2/3rds of the way there as far as saving up for it. I have been saving $400 a month.

Any of you that own one or have shot one what are your thoughts on the SCAR?

Heavy. Other then that, I like it better then an ACR and Tavor, but not as much as the CZ Bren. The Bren is awesome. I have only shot and abused them, too much money for me to spend on a bullet slinger.

The scar 17 I held at the gun store felt light but it wasnt loaded. Two of my friends own one, I just need to set up a time to go to the range and shoot them.

I did some horse trading last week and picked up a SCAR 16S in FDE. Was practically nib with a Vortex Strike Eagle Scope. Its accurate, recoil is nil and I really like it so far. Of course the 5.56mm is a different animal from the 7.62X51mm NATO round. I added the Inforce light and the Knights forward grip.
