This is a step by step instructions for the removal of the Armalite M15A2 Compensator. First you will need the following tools:
Dremel with cut off wheels
Once you have your tools and barrel ready look for the pin location on the compensator
Things to note:
The pin is in like the "Armalite" not the others.
The pin runs through the side of the barrel.
1.) Cut off the front part of the compensator in the post closest to the barrel, so you have the front half off.
2.) Then cut a slot on each side were the flats are for the wrench. Cut close to the threads not too much (mind the threads). Then cut the (now) front of the compensator.
3.) There will be a bit of the compensator still extending the barrel, put the chisel in the front of the compensator were you cut the slots and hit it hard with a hammer.
Wala you should have three peaces from the compensator. Toss it and place your new Flash hider.
I like it.
Before anybody tries that... you might look at this...
I wouldn't make cuts like shown in the thread here as it makes it tougher to split the FH... see my thread I just posted as I have done about four of these now and it's just how I do it...
Congrats on getting her off however you did it... It is a great feeling huh?
