SCAR field testing

Several months ago I spent a few days helping my old unit field test the new Scar rifle that is supposed to replace the M4.  All and all I came away with a favorable impression of it, with a few tweaks I think the Special Operations community would be pretty satisfied with it.  The Scar, isn’t the revolution some make it out to be, after all, the gas tappet system (or gas piston as FN likes to call it) has been around for a long time but it is a step up from the gas system on the M16 family of rifles.
