I have been out of the Marines for 10 years now and am ready to buy a rifle and start shooting again. I have narrowed it down to the XCR, Barrett REC7, SCAR Light. Since im a bit out of touch with these weapons could someone give me an unbiased review of each (money is not an issue). Thanks.

I was also wondering about the Magpul Masada but there site does not have a civilian sales section so im guessing it it still just for military like the HK 416.

Sorry, the Masada isn't available to anyone right now, it is still in development. There is a good comparison between the SCAR and XCR by VB, look a few threads down as it was just brought up.

Masada/ACR isnt dropping till 2010, if that.

Read my XCR/SCAR comparison for insight into both weapons. I think the XCR has some advantages but both are fine weapons, only the SCAR is about $800 more than an XCR and probably wont be easy to get for awhile even though it officially will be out next month.

The only thing close to a HK416 would POF (Patriot Ordnance Factory). I have no experience with them. But they do seem to be good. If I was to get back into the AR game I would go with them.

I love my POF lower. Having handled a 416 (but not shot it) I would say it is nothing special. Too heavy, rails wont support aiming optics...blah, blah, blah. :2cents:
