Most important SCAR upgrade yet!
I'm a long time fan of the SCAR platform, but had noticed that the relatively short rails/handguard limited your options in how you held the weapon, or where you mounted accessories. I had previously tried another brand's quad rail extension for the SCAR, but found that it added unnecessary bulk, and threw off the balance of the SCAR. Nothing could be further from the case with the MREX. It's light weight, sturdy, and slim, almost too slim. It allows for the shooter to get a grip closer to the muzzle, and the extra mounts allow for more options in mounting accessories. Add in some off-set mounts and M-LOK rail covers, and the MREX makes the SCAR feel perfect. My only complaints about the MREX would be that the QD mount is positioned right where my hand is, making it unusable, there's a gap in the M-LOK sections on the bottom where the gas system is located, and there is no provided provision for attaching any accessories were the OEM SCAR side rails used to be. It would be nice to be able to attach a QD or other sling mount, or even a gun camera, in those positions. Overall, the MREX is an excellent upgrade for your SCAR without worrying about adding bulk or weight. 4 1/2 stars out of 5.
