One carbine for the rest life. If you save a few more dollars and do some searching you can buy the best .308 battle carbine available. The FN SCAR 17s have everything you're looking for except price. MOA - no problem. Iron sights - yes. Light weight - yes. Low recoil - yes. $2800.00 - yes but worth it.
Does the scar17 have the same buttstock as the 16? Ive read that the 16 had a little bit of a flimsy, plastic buttstock that wore down quickly.
I told the new me,
"Meet me at the bus station and hold a sign that reads: 'Today is the first day of the rest of your life.'"
But the old me met me with a sign that read: "Welcome back."
