  • Super reliable
  • Fun to shoot
  • Folding stock
  • Ergos are a bit chunky
  • Pricey
  • Kills cheap optics
Editor’s Note:

Yes, it looks like an Ugg boot…now with that out of the way, the FN SCAR 17S is a nifty rifle that will make all your range mates jealous. Though it feels clunky, and there’s not a ton of aftermarket here, it brings a smooth, reliable shooting experience. Plus, it’s just fun. The folding stock makes it easy to tote to and from the range. It also has rails for optics but beware it will destroy cheap optics. Only the finest of glass here.

CZ’s Scorpion EVO 3 S1 is an awesome rifle.  It’s well made, easy to control, and has looks to die for. The market for this rifle is growing rapidly with a lot of companies introducing more and more custom parts for the Scorpion. Not to mention, it dominates in the accuracy department! It has a nice, long, sight radius, with excellent stock iron sights — this makes shooting accurately easy.

final verdict

“Without putting too fine of a point on it, it is unlike any other rifle I’ve ever worked with. I love it and you will too…if you can get past that lofty price point.” — Johnny B.
