Better than an HK 91? Surprisingly, someone found like 10 million magazines in a bunker some where and you can buy steel or Al mags for under $10.

FN SCAR

I've had the opportunity to shoot "all" of the FN SCAR series (ie 16,17,20, etc).

I bought a 16S. It's cheating, and I'm all about cheating

They are pricey; but, for your $ you get the most reliable, accurate, magazine fed, semi-auto 5.56/7.62mm rifle in the world. That, was also designed to be used w/a suppressor.

That is my professional opinion. It gives me an edge.

*Note. I immediately replaced the trigger w/a Geissele super scar:)

Good shooting

What's the current wisdom on suppressor adaptor on the SCAR 17? Surefire SOCOM II. I have the flash hider instead of the muzzle brake, opinion seems split on whether to screw it straight on or use the chamfered washer with the chamfered side toward the muzzle. Screwed straight on, the FH indexes on the crown.

Just one a 17s in a raffle and am doing some research on this rifle to set it up. I'm surprised how expensive everything for this rifle is.

Ops checked the washer option with rocksett. Works good, we'll see if it lasts a long time.

Update, running great with the suppressor despite all the drama about mounting one on the low shoulder barrel. Being the cheap bastard I am I still check it with a bore rod before every range trip anyway.

Latest question is dialing in the gas regulator. I'm slightly overgassed for the Win 7.62 load I'm shooting at the moment, and am planning on ordering a slightly smaller port size for the suppressed switch position, which got me thinking. Since I'm planning on playing around with loads (subsonic etc), how much effect will it have on optimum port size? I'm assuming I should just order the whole range of gas regulators.

Do what you'd like, but I would be careful with subsonic .308 through that platform. I’ve read stories about ”key hole” .308 at subsonic velocities. I wouldn't put it through my SCAR. That may have bad effects to your suppressor. If you do, I'd suggest using a 220gr projectile and attempting to get .300blk velocities (without the suppressor while testing).

I've read the same. Unless I can find something reliably stable I'll save the subsonic for the .300 BLK.
