While my Form 1 is still awaiting, my 10" CQC Barrel Assembly for the SCAR 16S came in to my dealer today and I swung by to take a look at it, as I was in the area.

The CQC has the lovely new 3-prong flash hider on it, as seen here:
http://fnforum.net/forums/fn-scar-16s/47000-scar-l-three-prong-flash-hiders.html

I wasn't able to get too good a look at it, as I didn't take it out of the packaging (wanted it to stay sealed in the shipping plastic/oil while it sits in my dealer's safe for the next month...

Couple questions I haven't seen answered (or I can't find the threads):

Is FN making these themselves or are they using someone else's hider?

Are these compatible with any suppressors? Or just a fancy new 3-prong hider as opposed to the vicious factory brake?

Assuming the answer is no to the suppressor compatibility, I assume there's a market for the hider itself once I remove it? :)

Or, I guess I could always put it on the takeoff 16" barrel.

I've been teasing some info out of google and the forum since posting.

It looks like it's called the ECP flash hider.

It appears to work with the unobtanium SCAR suppressors but no commercial ones.

Appreciate it if anyone (Sarge?) can let me know if i've got this right...

PS: closeup pic of one of the 17S versions in this thread of Sarge's:

(it's the one directly above the ruler)

Re-edit: here's a pic of the 16S version with the 17S version.
Pretty much confirmed the answers to all my questions, just took a bit to get to the right term. Once I had the phrase "ECP" it was downhill from there :)

No suppressor that will be available to the US market.

My 10" barrel came with the 18 tooth AAC Blackout. I swapped it out for the 51 tooth since that is what I needed for my can.
