Hey guys, in an attempt to battle blowback on my SCAR with a surefire socom can, does anyone know the size of the gas control screw on the 10" factory FN barrel assembly? I was going to try a size or two smaller, but figured I would ask if anyone knew what it comes with to start. Any info is appreciated.

It's 2.00mm just in case anyone stumbles across this thread in the future.

Where did you get this info? That seems very large. Most of us use a 1.85mm screw.

FN fits the screw at the factory for each rifle so the sizes may be different.

I'd probably start at 2.0 (or what ever size you have) and try the next 4-6 smaller sizes until the bolt doesn't lock back on a empty round, then go up 1-2 sizes for insurance.

Kinda like setting up a FAL.

That's a good source. I believe him. Just wondering why FN would want it so large compaired to what us scar owners are deciding on.
