    Anyone ever owned the ares SCR?

    The Trigger on mine is fine. it's on par with a particularly nice Milspec type AR-15. I'm cross eye dominant and i just shoot rifles left handed and everything works out. I'm not sure why you'd want to use iron sights in this day and age, but the LPA ones for the Scorpion EVO are pretty much...

    Worst wildcat attempts??
