I have the original 4" (?) MREX on my SCAR 17 SBR (13"). It really changes the feel of the forend by sliming the width and height of it.
I have been bugging KDG for a 10" SBR SCAR 16 MREX forever and pretty much gave up, but they finally got around to it with the 2.0. I have one arriving tomorrow for my 10.5" SCAR 16 (cut down the original barrel, that's why it's 0.5" longer).

To me the key difference is the MREX bottom rail reduction. PMM does a great job at the side slimming, but to my knowledge he hasn't tackled the bottom rail, aside from making it lighter. But he makes some nice stuff, no doubt - I've kept up with him pretty much since he started doing gunsmithing stuff for the SCAR .
Bottom rails now from PMM. Mloc, keymod, slimmer pic, rail elimination. I use the elimination one most often. Assuming he doesn't change the picture you can see them all on the top level of the site... https://www.parkermountainmachine.com/

Not sure why but the stock 17 triggers seem much better than the stock 16 triggers.
I experienced the same thing. My 16 had a horrible trigger, so I bought a Super SCAR Trigger. A couple years later I bought a 17 and ordered another Super SCAR trigger before receiving the rifle. The trigger stock as pretty good.
I installed the Super SCAR because I liked it better, but the 17 trigger was a good milspec trigger and had I gotten it on my first SCAR, I likely wouldn't have felt the need to upgrade.
