No, I run a older Surefire FA762K suppressor with a FH762K-SCAR-HC flashider

Guest, I have Scar 17 and 16, there is no need to change gas rings. The rifle was designed for silencer use with the two gas settings of suppressed and unsuppressed. I have never had a reliability issue with suppressing multiple Scars.

I do not use a shoulder ring with my Sig SRD 7.62TiQD because the mount was not designed for use with a 90 degree shoulder. I also have not needed one with My YHM bargain 5.56 silencer.

T Mark Graham at Arizona Response Systems has 13 SCAR rifles. He is a Master Gunsmith and probably owns more SCARs than any individual in the country. He uses AAC silencers on his and I believe he does not use the KBA ring on his rifles. I will double check and report back.

Edit: There was no need for the ring with the AAC Blackout flash hiders.

Silencer Shop published a “compatibility list” for the SCAR, I have a SilencerCo Saker and when I had the 16” barrel installed it without a shoulder ring. When I got the 13” barrel I did get a KBA ring and used it. Both aligned well and have worked flawlessly with Factory ammo. I’ve worked up some lighter loads with 4895 and Hornady 150 FMJBT for plinking and in a carbine league, less gas and virtually no recoil with that load. ... ility-list
