I took the OP's question to be if anyone has used one, what do they think, and not whether or not it is better than an AR.

The BCG is robust which means more recoiling mass.. which in turn makes for more felt recoil.
Did you notice that when you shot the SCAR?

No thats purely in therory. Shooting them all side by side at a range day for work... (the SCAR's ACR's AR's Ruger SR556) The recoil isn't noticeably different in any of them. However the SCAR's were using the brake... where as the others were just flash hiders.

I think they are a fine gun... but I just see no way of justify the price difference being so extreme. I love "black rifles" so I would certainly buy one if there wasn't such a huge gap in price for essentially moot points for "upgrading".

It isn't like I can't afford one either... but I still find better value in an AR with accessories and ammo to go with it for about the same price tag as a bone stock SCAR, or ACR.

I will say I found the ACR to be uncomfortably heavy.
