Are these sold commercially? Where can I get one for the 17?

UPDATE: instead of started and new Thread, I updated this one. I have a new question regarding the ECP flash hiders.

I was was able to locate an ECP flash hider for my 17 and need some install advice. I couldn't really find much info with the search on the FH
1. Any shims or jam nuts required?
2. Is indexing required? Should one of the prongs be in a specific location?
3. What torque spec should be applied to the FH?
4. Is rocksett requires?
5. If rocksett is used, what to use to clean the threads before applying rocksett
6. Any other tips


thanks

I see them for sale every so often.
Usually a removal from a factory SBR barrel.
GB, this forum, Stryker are all possibilities

Thanks I guess I'll kecp checking there. I was hoping a place like midway or brownells sold them where it would be easier to buy

1. No
2. not really, only if you want but it would require figuring out how to time it and it would look funky with the jam nut.
3. I'm sure there is one but I've never had a problem with good and snug.
4. not required but I do believe FN uses it since they plan on suppressing the gun with this flash hider as the mount.
5. clean both the flash hider and barrel threads with acetone, let the rocksett cure over night before using and go light with the rocksett. More is NOT better with rocksett.
6. don't over think it........it ain't rocket science :mrgreen:

I have both .223 and .308 ECP flash hiders I would be willing to part with if anybody is still looking for them, just shoot me a PM. Never used, just some marking from removal. It took quite a bit of force with all of the thread locker they use on the factory SBR barrels.
