I liked the SCAR on Call of Duty, so it gets my vote.

I would say the SCAR is the one to get. To begin with, it is made by FN. FN makes quality firearms, no questions asked. Second, it being employed by our military so it was put through the gambit of testing. And third, the SCAR just seems like it is built better to me with things like the chrome-lined barrel.

The ACR looks nice and might have a more sturdy stock, but overall, the FN will be the one that is going to perform better and also hold its value.

For 5.56 i don't know if the scar is worth the extra money. in .308 i'd say a scar 17 is what's up, but for 5.56... i dunno...

that said i'm a gigantic FN fanboy. so i still vote scar

31 jeeps in... still have issues

I cannot speak to the SCAR as I have not shot one and do not own one. I have an ACR and it has been accurate and has had no malfunctions.

I have jeeps. I do shit to them.

I shot a friend's SCAR (coyote brown?) with iron sights and it shot very well. I have some experience with AR platforms so it was a welcome change. Low recoil, accurate, easy to manipulate, and no jamming or issues (we were firing military issue rounds).

One gripe I did have was that after about an hour of constant (but not overly aggresive) shooting, the fore grip got so hot that we had to put a towel over the hand guard just to shoot. In my opinion this is unexcusable. I have shot AR's much more aggresively and for a longer duration of time where this was not a problem. Yes the AR's got warm, but literally we could no longer shoot the SCAR without either gloves or a towel to protect our hands.

Other than that issue, I give it high regards. Unfortunately I have never shot an ACR so I can't speak on that.

Hope it helps,

I have heard that about the scar it is because the barrel is thinner then most so it heats up faster
