Scout AR 15: What worked? And what didn’t?

Let’s talk about my second favorite rifle in my collection. After multiple challenges and a successful hog hunt, the Scout AR 15 has proven to be more than a collection of components: it’s a purposeful and flexible machine.

To be honest, the performance and handling of this rifle surprised me even though I carefully selected each part to meet a certain need. The total result is even better than I imagined. It’s light, quick, accurate, and just darn handy. Even more surprising, I can pick from a handful of sights and scopes and take care of business at a variety of distances. There were only two let-downs. The Amend 2 magazines stopped working after being loaded for a while, and the .223 chambering didn’t overwhelm big hogs. We’ll fix the latter problem by slapping a 350 Legend upper on top sometime soon.
