    Gas Jets

    I recently bought a SilencerCo Omega. It's waiting for Form 3 transfer now. The shop I'm a part of has a range so I'll be able to use it immediately I just won't be able to take it home. I'm buying 2 more Omegas so my 3 favorite guns are always suppressed. SCAR 16, SCAR 17 and piston LMT MRP 5.56. My question is for the SCAR's. I see HDD,PMM and HANDL offer stainless gas jets at smaller and larger sizes than stock. I want to replace the jets in my 16 and 17 for optimal use suppressed. Any Suggestions on which sizes to use. Both are still 16" and will stay that way. Thanks

    Based on the suggestion of another member (Doug - dhoover1027), I went with a PMM 1.25mm gas screw for my 16" 17S with Omega suppressor (same as Doug). Doug used the same size screw on his 16S as well.

    16" barrel with 1.25mm gas screw and Omega suppressor:


    suppressed w/ gas control at 10 o'clock - cycles
    suppressed w/ gas control at 12 o'clock - cycles

    unsuppressed w/ gas control at 10 o'clock - does not cycle
    unsuppressed w/ gas control at 12 o'clock - cycles

    Of course, this is ammo dependent. I'm running 168gr FGMM and 168gr IMI.

    The ammo you shoot regularly is going to have a huge role in gas jet selection. Honestly I'd wait to shoot the thing with a can and see how it runs.

    I have an omega on mine and it's been flawless for 300+ rounds. Ejects brass at 3 o'clock. Not super dirty in the receiver either so I feel like it's running pretty well with the stock jet.
