    SCAR weapon has 2 settings on the regulator. Normal. Suppressed.

    There is no adverse setting.

    The SCAR owners manual...civilian SCAR mentions nothing about a Suppressor setting. It only says the keep the gas regulator at the 12 o'clock position.

    This can be easily misconstrued. The OM that is provided with the civilian version of the SCAR does not address the function of a suppressor and discussion of the gas regulator is limited to cleaning and inspection only while the MILITARY OM does provide that the gas regulator has two positions, suppressed and, well nothing is addressed as far as the "normal" or "un-suppressed" position that I could find off the quick read but I am sure that it is addressed somewhere in the military OM.

    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 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.

    I would say that voiding the warranty depends on what aftermarket add ons were used. For example, using the KDG replacement stock, charging handle would not void the warranty but the SuperScar fire control components might.

    I could be wrong, but it makes sense.

    True. Perhaps FN has denied the warranty for other reasons. I'd appeal if possible.
