Since you brought it up... where do you source your spare parts from? A number of parts appear unique (hop-up and pistol grip, off the top of my head). I wouldn't mind keeping a set (or two) of spares around for repairs and such, but I haven't found a source for the parts.

For L vs. H +/-
Mk 16:
Plus; STANAG magazines are easy to find and if you run a second AEG like a M4 you can keep the same pouches on your gear and share mags with your team.
Minus; no one is using them since SOCOM pulled the plug. If you want a hyper realistic loadout that may be an issue.

MK 17:
Plus; in service now so if you're setting up like a Ranger or some of the other US SOF units it's a OK choice.
Minus; Magazines will only fit that one AEG (re VFC, some of the other brands are cross compatible with other AEGs) so the hunt to get mags, and no sharing when the chips are down.
Standard V2 tappet plate, as well as standard v2 parts, minus the nozzle

if you talk to derek from tacops.ca his asc name is sticks he can get vfc parts, tell him you were talking to me.

I'd just like to say "Thanks" to everyone who provided me with great info and/or reference links so I could teardown my SCAR-L. In particular (and in no particular order):

- Danke - for pointing me to the teardown guide.
- Lanepratt - for guiding me to Wallyworld for the ONE HEX KEY that I couldn't find anywhere.
- TokyoSeven - for pointing out that the spare spring the gun came with could've been the original "stock" spring (T7 - you were right).
- m102404 - for his scar-l braindump under "gun discussions" (provided some useful insight; thanks, m).
- ACS, in general, for having SCADS of info available - THAT IS SEARCHABLE!

Teardown wasn't that bad, and complete reassembly after the spring swap was relatively painless (if you ignore the two times I had to re-opened the gearbox to correct assembly/alignment errors ).

Rifle now fires at a consistent 345 fps (give or take) w/ 0.25 g BBs.

Again, Thanks, All!
