Hey guys, do any of the AR manufacturers make an AR with a screw on flash hider?  Or are they all tacked on?

Depends on your situation, as of Sept 13, most if not all are NOT permanetly installed by pin/weld or press/solder  if the barrel is 16" or longer.  If they are under 16" and you don't do an ATF Form 4 for a short barreled rifle, then a muzzle device is permanently attached to bring the overall length to 16".  If you live a ban state, then a muzzel brake is premanently attached if you don't want a bare crowned muzzle.  Any manufacurer will permanently attach by your request.

I have a 16" RRA upper that I change the FH on whenever I want.

The original flash suppressor of my M16 was on tight!  I had to get a gunsmith to loosen it up so I could properly clean the end.  After that, a quick, but hard twist with a wrench loosened the birdcage so I could take it off.

But Bushmaster told me I should not take off the flash suppressor of A2 Upper I bought last year.

So take your pick: Some say Yea, some say Nay.

Soon as my upper gets back from ADCO I will have a flash hider.

I made a huge mistake and got a post-ban since it was in stock...I should have waited.

Yeah under Industry and Gunsmithing they will do anything for you.  Kurt's Kustoms is putting an A2 FH and contouring the barrel on my post ban DPMS.

Also, I'm not fully knowledgeable about the crush washers for the FHs.  If you take one off I assume you will need a new crush washer?  If you use a crush washer they should be tight as hell?
