- do you see specific problems with either one?

- do you hate either of these rifles?
The H&K is superior in all aspects German engineering.

the SCAR is a piston design like the H&K and great in that respect but typical design flaws that were unexplained for engineers to have missed design issues like butt stock to cheek weld. Like the M-16 series the designers IMO were intentionally designing it with small flaws for later upgrades.

The H&K is my weapon of choice but quality costs money.
