The Classic Army Sportline SCAR-L is the first easily affordable Fully Licensed SCAR on the market. The SCAR-L is based on the MK16 used by the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). The SCAR has many advantages over other types of assault rifles. It is fully ambidextrous with a fire selector switch on each side of the weapon. It also has a detachable charging handle that can be attached to either side. The SCAR has an enormous amount of rail space, making it easy to add any type of optics and other attachments such as lasers, flashlights, and foregrips. The sights can easily be flipped up or down and the rear sight can be removed completely if needed. The stock can also be folded to the side to make the gun shorter for CQB situations. The Classic Army sportline SCAR-L shoots at around 400 FPS with 0.20g BBs, making it a great weapon for field play. The body of the AEG is made of very durable polymer and has FN Herstal trademarks for added authenticity. If you're looking for a SCAR that won't break the bank but gives plenty of bang for your buck, this is definitely the gun to get.
I bought this gun about 6 months ago so this will be a well detailed review after extensive use. The scar is a great performing gun. That being said, I have had a few issues. The externals are pretty solid, and there is no wobble on my gun. The only troubles I have had are the rear sight, front sight, and fire selector. I'll start with the rear sight. This gun uses a lot of ball bearings for smooth usage. My rear sight broke very easily because of adjusting for elevation, and it was a pain to fix. I ended up buying a Magpul style flip up replacement. The sights are a little high up for my ACOG, so the co witness isn't like it should be. This is mostly due to the fact that my replacement rear sight sits lower than the stock front sight. The front sight is good, but at a milsim event, my gun hit a 4 wheeler and the front sight broke off. I ended up finding it first try later that night, and I found a way to reattach it. It now works flawlessly. My last problem I have had is that the fire selector switch on the right side of the gun, broke off. Again, they use ball bearings for this, and they seem to come off very frequently. I'm working out a fix for it, and if it doesn't work, I'll have to disassemble my gun completely. As far as accuracy goes, it's great. It has very solid internals and they are worth saving if you want to put them in a different platform gun. The fps is around 360-380, but from about 15 feet the bbs can break sling through 3 layers of clothing. It packs a punch!! My only other con with this gun is the stock is more plasticky around the shoulder instead of a rubber, but it doesn't get too uncomfortable especially with gear. Overall, I highly recommend this gun as most of the issues I have had have been mostly my fault. However, be weary of these because they could easily happen to you. If you want a scar for a good price, I recommend this. If you want ambidextrous controls because you are a lefty like me, it's great. Anthony
