    Why does Handl recommend a 1.7 when the factory is 1.5? I'm seeing other people online recommending a smaller jet, not larger. Doesn't make sense...
    Concur, it would be nice to see some good information on this. I run my 16 and 17 suppressed, and it would be nice to have something to go with. Replacing parts on a SCAR is a little pricier than messing up an AR when trying to run those suppressed.

    Read my other thread on why I love the Scar. Its the only weapon to pass the "Mikes Super Gun ADD problems" test and remain in my safe (well that, and its a registered SBR). One or two guys having a problem running it suppressed, versus the likely hundreds of thousands with no problem. Rest assured, EVERY weapon has their issues and their hate threads.

    Spend the $30 and get all the ones near your factory setting and test them yourself. Id be willing to bet the unused ones will sell quickly online. I went with the smallest jet that would cycle, then went up one in case of bad ammo or carbon build up, not a single hiccup.

    I have a thread listing my jet sizes and testing methods, although both my 16 and 17 are SBRs. It took all of 45 min of my life to get both dialed in perfectly, with a total cost of about $60 in jets.

    Id take whatever advice Handl gives out and throw it in the dumpster, then burn it with JP-5.

    Logic dictates you would use a smaller gas jet not a larger. Just like the 10 O clock setting decreases gas blowback not increases it.
