I finally got around to having the bbl chopped and added Parker Mountain Machine rails all around. The rails feel awesome and they look great as well. The feel of the gun is so much better now. Need optic, light, handstop and sling and sling attachment, any sugesstions? Ohh, and I need to play with the gas jets to get it running smooth on suppressed and unsuppressed.

NICE!!! Unfortunately in a fit of "genius" I sold my SCAR 16 to consolidate rifle platforms down to only AR's... Pics like these make me regret that decision!!! Smile

I'm having trouble with the almost complete part of the post. But in any case I love the PMM rails on this gun. Change the whole feel by reducing the circumference. As for the parts you are missing...I use the PMM sling attachments and can recommend those. I run a surefire scout light in a arisakadefense mlok mount and that seems to work pretty well. I'm going to give the bobro pivoting mount a try to see if I can get the light in a better place. I don't run a handstop as I don't care for them. The #1 improvement to the gun I've made is a trigger swap to the geissle. if the gun is a serious gun run an aimpoint.
In any case the SCAR 16/17 have been my favorites for a long time.

I forgot that PMM made qd sockets, think I might get one up front and the one that goes on the stock. I think I'm leaning towards a T1 or T2 as well. The trigger has been swapped to a Geissle shortly after it was purchased Big Grin

The extra barrel assemblies run about $1,000.

As m499 said, the cost of another bbl assembly was the main factor.

Congrats on the new SCAR, it’s looking good! To answer your original questions, here is what I would choose on your setup:

Aimpoint T2 on Scalarworks mount (or Trijicon MRO)
Magpul Mlok handstop kit
Arisaka 300 series light with remote switch
Blue force gear VCAS bush button sling
Arisaka Mlok QD sling mount (front left side)
Noveske QD flush mount (buttstock right side)

I would change your brake to the flash hider instead. With a properly tuned gas valve the recoil is very minimal so the brake isn’t really needed IMO, and the concussion on a SBR with a brake is severe. I'm using a 1.75mm gas screw shooting IMI M193 ammo and it works very well.

My 10” SBR is similar but I used the MI QD mount up front instead since I didn’t have the extra rail space that you do on my SBR.





I like much of what PMM makes but I don’t like their front QD mount since it interferes with where my support hand thumb goes. I also found the higher sling mount positions tend to make the sling interfere with the charging handle more often, so I like the lower mount positions inline with the rail better.



I also didn’t need the Noveske QD mount on this one since the KDG stock already had QD mounts, but here what the Noveske looks like on my other SCARS with factory stocks.
