    So I’ve been debating on suppressing my scar 17s but not sure what all I’ll need aside from the stamp and suppressor I’ve read online sometimes you need to change the gas jets out and stuff like that just wondering if it’d be worth it and if so any recommendations for a suppressor
    Just trying to pop my NFA cherry here

    The shoulder on the Scar17S barrel is surprisingly narrow, so it can cause alignment issues with muzzle devices. If you’re planning on using a QD type system, definitely check out a muzzle shoulder ring. It just creates a wider surface for the muzzle device to square up against. I use a KBA Custom one and Parker Mountain makes one as well. They’re inexpensive, and they’ll save you the headache of a baffle strike.

    I’d look at the low back pressure .30 cans.

    Pewscience gave high marks to the 7.62 Socom RC2, Sandman S, OSS, and CGS Hyperion.

    OSS helix or something else with flow through are probably your best bets if you don’t want to mess around with modifications and risk regretting who you lose your NFA virginity to.

    Sandman S + stock low gas setting seems to work for me. I have only put maybe 50 rounds through it tho, so I am all ears on hearing from others why this may be a “Bad Idea (TM)”

    I run a Surefire 762 mini2 on the 16” barrel scar 17”. It does just fine and I didn’t have to replace the jets. I can if I want but the suppressor setting does just fine.

    Using the Surefire Brake and the chamfer that comes with the 762 Surefire brake is a shoulder like you’d buy after market that is included with the muzzle device.

    Install the muzzle device as instructed and you’re good to go (check right rod).

    Edit: and as always – is Surefire the quietest…no… but its also low back pressure with repeatable sub-moa POI shift. Is the mini2 as quiet as the RC2 no – but the mini2 is still a lot of weight hanging on the end already – haven’t tried it on any AKs yet since it’s dedicated to my scar.

    Hey dude – I suppressed mine with a the PMM ring, cherry bomb, and trash panda. I use a 1.3mm gas jet because I shoot suppressed 100% of the time and wanted to minimize wear. It also has a very small POI shift, but ymmv depending on what can you use. With the 1.3mm, it runs 100% even with cheap steel ammo, but it fails to feed on the rare occasions when the can isn’t attached. In my mind, this is ideal, but if you plan on shooting like a savage sometimes you should go with 1.35 or 1.4mm. Factory is 1.5mm.

    Also, definitely get the gas jet removal tool. The factory jet is made of soft metal and you can strip the slotted portion it if you don’t have the perfect size flathead. Then you have to have to buy drill bits.

    I’m using an AAC 762SD on my SCAR 17 and it has been an adventure getting it to work. Just putting on the can and shooting on the suppressed setting was way overgassed and broke my extractor. I got the .35 gas jet from PMM and it works great now

    Suppressed SCARs like to break for some reason.
