    New SCAR 17s with "3-prong flash suppressor."

    I just ordered a SCAR 17s FDE from Gander Mountain and in the picture and description the rifle has a flash suppressor instead of the muzzle break I've always seen on the SCARs. Anyone know anything about this flash suppressor? (http://www.gandermountain.com/modper...Rifle&i=721096)

    They jacked that image from somewhere else. That's an ECP flash hider they issue with the mil version of the scar. The FN suppressor fits on it. Meaning yours will look like the civilian ones you've been seeing here when it comes in. Cheers.

    Yea but it's not only the picture, it's also in writing on the side. Unless they're using the jacked picture to determine key features.

    it will most likely come with the pws brake. the pic is a generic pic from fn website of the mk17. it might be the new triad from pws like the barrel assemblies sold seperately. 'not sure if they are really pws, haven't seen one in person yet'. but flash hider is an aac which can still be found though i believe they are discontinued.

    You are looking at the AAC Miter Mount Flash Hider that was designed to fit the AAC SCAR H Can. The scar does not come with this mount. It will come with the stock brake that everyone else gets.

    Sorry this fellah here told me that /\ in the Scars in the war on terror thread. They looked the same to me. Thanks for clearing that up.

    No worries, they are fairly similar in length and appearance. The ones in the pic you posted are in fact ECP like you mentioned.

    Yeah I see the difference now between the two. Whoops. I never claimed to be smart folks! In any case they aren't putting them out with those as far as I know but I could be wrong about that too I'm going back to my hole.
