I went with a POF Rogue.
Light and low recoil.
Follow ups are as fast as a 5.56 AR.
Dead nuts accurate and over 1K through it in 8 months !
Thoughts on APC308?
I have a SCAR16 & APC223; I definitely prefer the SCAR but there are some nice features on the APC. Looking at a 308 myself, I’m considering these two primarily.
What is "dead nuts accurate"?
Accurate enough to shoot the nuts off a walnut tree at 1200 yards in variable winds, especially in Laos. I heard that only a couple of rifles in the world could make that shot....
I suggest a JP LRP-07, order it exactly the way you want it. There will be a wait, and it will be expensive, but you will get exactly what you want ind it will be nice. If you where closer I would offer to let you play with one, but since the likelihood of you being in my neck of the woods is slim that would not be of much help.
I would go with either a LaRue PredatOBR or a LaRue OBR or possibly a Les Baer Swat Sniper if you can find one. All 3 are lasers.
I have a SCAR 17, LMT MWS and a POF 308 as well as the Larue's and Les Baer. While all shoot well the LaRue's and the Les Baer are quite a bit more accurate.This message has been edited. Last edited by: samnev,
SCAR17s and as others have said, just use factory mags. They are available and not terribly priced. You’ll want a KDG mlok handguard, so factor that into the cost.
LMT MARS-H mlok with 16” LW barrel. These are excellent, at the upper end/slightly more than your budget. I had an older MWS with LW barrel. It was a great shooter. A bit gassy with a can, but BRT now makes reduced port gas tubes for the MWS.
SigSauer USA 716i Tread is a great option and very inexpensive. Two friends have them and they are reliable, accurate, and reasonable in weight. Dual ejector bolt is a plus.
DD5 looks to be a great option too. Excellent barrel. Dual ejector bolt. Absolutely atrocious furniture that needs to be replaced.
I’ve owned a Larue OBR, LMT MWS with 16” LW barrel, and KAC SR25. Also have a bunch of time on friends’ SCAR17s and SCAR20s. My absolute favorite 308 without contest is the KAC SR25 PC. But they command stupid money ($7k and up) right now, because no one has them in stock.

Nothing to add on which rifle but…
My local store had 2 17s in stock and one of them was camo (clerk said it was factory)

Wilson Combat has a contender.

Yeah, there have been a couple factory camo SCARs offered, namely Multicam and Western Viper.
Those SCARs are not easy on the eyes. The camo on the above-linked Wilson is much more appealing.
I suppose the multicam SCAR is broken up good though. These images are timely, considering the rifle camo thread.
Why would someone pay to have their SCAR look like that? I mean, if I could just "unsee" that I would pay good money for that.

Mistake not my current state of joshing gentle peevishness for the awesome and terrible majesty of the towering seas of ire that are themselves the milquetoast shallows fringing my vast oceans of wrath.
|Fighting the good fight|
Haha. I'm with you.
But I'm sure someone out there likes them. Just like I'm sure Sig sold more than a few of their hideous Diamond Plate and Rainbow Titanium guns years ago.
As they say: There's an ass for every seat.
Plus, I mean... the SCAR isn't going to win any beauty contests to begin with.
