    FN ECP flash hider?

    Anyone using a FN ECP on their 17? If so what do you like about it?

    Not many people would even know what you're talking about, much less have one in their possession to try out. Maybe soon with what finally appears to be the FNH barrel assemblies coming to market. In the mean time, I have yet to shoot this example. It's big, and heavy in comparison to others, but I don't see any reason it wouldn't be effective at reducing flash as it's intended to.

    Remove your PWS and fire it, that will give you a feel of what the recoil would be like. I run the AAC Blackout suppressor mount and there is a increase in felt recoil but it is difficult to explain accurately what it feels like, that's why I say try your rifle without the brake and you will see.

    Well then, best I could describe it is noticeable increase in recoil, muzzle rise, but still very controllable.

    While I don't have a SCAR 17, I do have an RFB. Both fire the 7.62 NATO. I went with the Rainier Arms Xtreme XTC compensator as a compromise.



    I was looking for reduced recoil, minimal muzzle rise, and reduced muzzle flash. So this one seemed to be a good choice with many positive reviews and a very reasonable price.

    So basically the only reason people switch out the pws is for the (very loud) noise? Im all about a quieter gun but having a lot more recoil because of it is not something I think I'd want to substitute

    Contrary to popular belief, I know exactly what I'm doing.
