I bought this gun because I've loved the look of the scar ever since I played Ghost Recon Advanced War Fighter. As most should know, Classic Army was one of the first, if not THE first airsoft company to release the scar. I decided I wanted a new gun for an upcoming OP, The Hunt 2007. I purchased the gun a week after it was officially released. I went to my local airsoft shop to pick it up, I got the 2nd to last one they had. The last one they had was their display. I fired it before I bought it, and it was great. I took it home, sighted in my red dot. This gun was extremely accurate. I shot a soda can about a hundred feet away. I went to a warm up airsoft game about 2 days before my op and it handled beautifully. All my shots went exactly where I wanted them. The gun itself got a lot of attention for being on of the first of its kind out on the field. The day of the op, I got it ready. I didn't fire it in the staging area, because the op wouldn't allow it. I went into the field, saw a couple of enemies, pointed my gun and pulled the trigger. My gun wasn't feeding. I shot several times, Nothing. luckily I had my Classic Army MP5 (one of the most reliable guns that I have owned) to use for the OP. I got home and opened the gear box, (getting the gearbox out is extremely hard) the tappet plate had broken apart. I went to the shop a few weeks later to pick up a new one. They told me they stopped selling the gun because of the problems they kept receiving problems from that gun. Well, I popped the tappet plate in, and the gun worked great. I took it to another game and it worked extremely well. The next day I fired the gun, Nothing happened. I took a look inside, the new tappet plate snapped. I decided I was going to put a weaker spring in. M110 and a new tappet plate. The gun has worked flawlessly since then. I realized that I had the first Gen of the scar, I'm sure problems has been fixed since then.
Bolt screws on and off for placement to the left or right side
Looks (to each his own)
takes m4/m16 magazines
Not the very common m4/m16 style gun on the field
Lots of rail space
New Hop Up design
Battery storage is limited to the adjustable stock
Recommend 8.4, can take a 9.6 but cannot adjust the stock completely
Shooting too hot for some parts to handle (had to replace tappet plate, twice)
Wires are showing when you fold the stock
If not careful you can pinch the wires
Extremely difficult to remove the gearbox
No functioning bolt catch
I give it 2 stars because of the unreliable stock gearbox it had, and the difficulty to get to it. I literally had to pry it out of the lower receiver. cosmetic issues could have been properly addressed. Also I did have a first gen of the gun so it was bound to have issues. It did have great accuracy. I'm not gonna say I hated the gun, because it actually became my primary gun once I fixed the major problems. But as a stock gun I give, 2 stars.
