    XCR 6.8 vs SCAR 17s

    Only 2 choices in those calibers the scar .308 and xcr 6.8

    If there are SHTF and you can only have one of those, which one would you choose ?
    Can you trust XCR 6.8 with your life ?

    XCR 6.8 vs SCAR 17s

    Thanks
    Martin

    ONLY MY HUMBLE OPINION.

    I would go with the SCAR simply because I feel that 308 is going to be easier to come by.

    Open it up to 7.62x39 or 5.56 and I would go with the XCR.

    Can you trust XCR more than SCAR ?

    Re: XCR 6.8 vs SCAR 17s

    I've never owned a SCAR.

    I've had several XCRs. Some with issues, some without. The ones with issues, I've taken the time to figure out what the problem was (not always rifle related) and since the problem was fixed they've been great. The platform is robust and easy to work on.

    I've handled some SCARs. They're light and field strip easy. I've heard they shoot nice. But I'll stick with my XCR.

    Again, that's my opinion.

    I standby my caliber statement. The most reliable rifle in the world isn't going to do you any good if you can't feed it.

    +1

    .308 has been around a long time and it's a proven performer on everything. Plus I have to say, the 17s is probably the softest recoiling 308 I have owned to date. (FAL, Hk91, M1a, etc.)

    Like Navalbeaver, I would go with a XCR if .308 wasn't an option. My copy has been a real trooper, and I have abused it!! Again, 7.62x39 and 5.56 is everywhere and gets the job done. I would trust 6.8 but it would be a real challenge to feed.

    Re: XCR 6.8 vs SCAR 17s

    Still stick with the XCR

    seems like this post comes up on every forum. Pretty sure if the search function worked, you could find a couple on this forum.

    Would you trust XXXXX in a SHTF scenario?

    To me it seems like guys are looking to by the 'best' XXXX out there. Problem is there isnt' a 'best'. Everything has/will fail at some point. The ARs great because it's been around for 50years and has the benefit of lots of R&D and testing. Same with the AK. But they still fail.

    Get a decent quality rifle, get some ammo, shoot it, clean it, shoot some more, take a class, clean it, shoot some more, take another class that teaches you different techniques, shoot some more, rinse, wash, repeat.

    There's no one right answer.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I will just forget about the SCAR.

    I'm trying to make up my mind about afew XCRs on gunbroker, I think I will go with the pistol.

    at least you can legally put the pistol in Backpack (with CCP)

    What do you think ?

    For the pistol,

    I would ask for a pic. See if he'll give you an indication of the SN. The newer SNs should be in the 8000s.

    He mentions a warranty card but I've never seen one of those from RA. He's either making it up or mistaken.

    There have been some XCRs on GB the last few months that have been 'misrepresented'.
