I have a Fulton Armory upper assembly. I would like to install a KAC RAS unit myself (I decided to just buy the tools I need). However, I don't know how my look-alike flash hider is secured to the barrel. Any ideas? I know it is at least pinned, other than that, I don't know.

Thanks,
--Dan

Probably blind-pinned and welded. You want a real thing?

I don't want the real thing, "The Look" looks real, and keeps my carbine legal. It is supposed to be easily removed, I guess I'll have to drive the pin out and see what else holds it on. I doubt the barrel is threaded, as then the muzzle attachment would have to be soldered/welded on-not so easily removed. ANY tips are appreciated. THANKS! --Dan

It could just be pinned, that's how my Colt Comp is/was. There will be small notches on the barrel where it crosspins.

I believe it is pressed on like the RRA M4's

How about sending Clint an e-mail, or call him on the phone?

Just verified with Fulton Armory, "The Look" is just pinned on with a taper pin. --Dan

looking down the rifle from the muzzle end does the pin drive out from the left side or the right side?

I have a dial caliper that I uses to measure as closely as I could, the hole diameter. As I see it (still waiting for my punch set to be delivered), the pins should be driven out from the ejection port side. That is, with the rifle laying down on its side, with tht ejection port UP, that is when to hammer on the pin. Measure to make sure though. --Dan

I was never aware that removal of the brake was necessary to clamp a 2 piece RAS to the barrel unit?[>:/]

I think he means the FF RAS, though I might be wrong.

Isn't the FF a two piece clamp shell type as well?

I believe the FF RAS is one piece and requiers the removal of the front sight base and any muzzle attachments. The RAS II, which also free floats, is a two piece unit that does not require the removal of anything (other than the original handguards) but does require a flat top receiver.

Ahhh, Thanks for clarifying that.

Yep, its the FF RAS, one piece. I have to get the gas block off, and its not coming off unless the fake flash suppressor comes off. I ordered the punches, this should be fun. --Dan
