Considering that NO civilian SCAR is set up for "suppressed" mode, the "suppressed" position was never addressed in the civilian OM. So while technically incorrect, the use of "adverse" would be common terminology in the civilian market as in "normal" and "adverse" positions (because there is NO factory CIVILIAN SCAR set up for use with a suppressor).
Not everyone has the official military OM for the SCAR and it does not matter because these are two breeds of firearm platforms that are totally different except for styling features.
STL is correct in the "normal" and "suppressed" mode assuming military models of the firearm, Jon's statement of "normal" and "adverse" fit fine with the civilian model of this platform.
In reality, it is two farts from the same pig and don't mean a hill of beans either way. It is like the VC25 and Boeing 747, styling features are close but one is Air Force One (assuming the president is on board) and the other is the civilian Boeing 747
Just my .02cents worth.....

So is the Bolt sticking in the carrier just because he ran it suppressed and carbon build up is causing it to stick, or did he actually break something?
I think FNH may be omitting something but I cannot understand why they would release a rifle in the US market which was not rated for suppression on the stock 16" barrel.
The MK17 may have different design specifications v.s. the scar 17 such as the gas jets; aside from the full auto capability.
Smells like soft carriers
Its not carbon its tolerance within the carrier. His was some 60 rounds in..
Its the carrier; not the bolt. The location where the cam is the problem so it seems. Part 48 on the diagram contacting the carrier I think.
