    Looking for a new flash suppressor, the one off the FN scar

    Anyone know where one can pick one of these up? I called FN and they laughed at me when I asked to purchase one. I really did not see anything funny with the request.

    Ok your question has two answers. First the Civilian version of the FN SCAR models I have seen come with the FSC 556, the military models come with AAC Blackout suppressor mounts. So it depends on which one you are referring to.

    The FSC556 is available from www.primaryweapons.com it's $100.00
    This is the same comp/flash hider that comes on the civilian versions of the SCAR.

    What is your opinion on this comp/flash hider?

    It's very good. It's almost effective as many competition type comps but suppresses flash very well too. It's well worth the money IMO however like other comps it is louder, not to the shooter but to person around the shooter.

    I guess it is the military model, as I do not see it on the website listed. The one I would like is this one:

    the blackout on the SCAR is the older tooth count hider because of how long that program goes back. My feelings about the SCAR aside i would just go with the new tooth count hider. The tooth count suppressor and hider have a sturdier mount.

    sorry i don't have pics. the flash hider we use on the scar is not a special military one. just an older model aac. i know aac still makes them but not sure if it's on their website. again, i would just get the newer one...unfortunately the military doesn't always have the latest and greatest.

    It is good at what it is suppose to do, but it is the incorrect FH for the SCAR.

    When I got my SCAR, I promptly removed the PWS hider that was violating it and installed the correct blackout.

    I have no idea why FN chose to use this hider. They could have used an A2 and saved the purchaser of the SCAR $100 or used the correct blackout.

    Agreed. I am not a fan of the PWS muzzle device. I would have been happy with an A2.

    Furthering on this, I bet over half the people who purchased the SCAR removed the PWS hider and installed a blackout or A2. I personanlly know 6 people who did this.

    If FN used a blackout or A2 from the get go, I doubt hardly anyone would have installed a PWS.

    I dont disagree. If I didn't think I would be selling my SCAR in the near future, I would probably change out the flash hider too

    Why is it incorrect for the SCAR?

    I think he meant "not the same as the military version" on the SCAR. Although even that has changed with the latest SSR variant and it's Surefire break/silencer adapter.
