G3 problems are a really bad trigger, really dirty action, very poor ergonomics and balance. The worst 308 rifle of the group
FAL is almost perfect, only problem is accuracy is just ok and no where near as accurate as a AR-10 or SCAR
M1A is almost perfect, but accuracy is really poor compared to a AR-10 or SCAR. Almost the best rifle to shoot standing
RFB is a toy, unreliable and ok accuracy.
AR-10 is very very accurate, great trigger and lots of cool way to customize, but very nose heavy, best for shooting off bench.
The SCAR is not the best in all but does everything very well, it is very accurate, controls are great, trigger is good, recoil is less than any of the above rifles, AND the most comfortable to shoot standing.
Clones don't count as a HK91 sorry! the real deal is my favorite. i have owned an ar-10, fal (sprinfields, i had two) and m1a. sold them all over the years and will never sell the 91. i can trick it out, and have. i can swap from my scope to my pvs-4 in seconds. have spare everything including a stock trigger pack since i run a psg1 trigger at 4lbs. and it will shot ANY ammo, ammo that wouldn't fit in a m1a or dropped in the mud.
i would like to try a scar but haven't yet
