Hey guys, I have a new LMT Upper with A2 flash hider. I want to change it out to a vortex. The A2 seems to be on there pretty damn tight, it's not silver soldered on or "loctited" is it?!

What is your barrel length?

10.5"

I know "unscrew it", but it's on there damn tight and I' just want to make sure that I'm not going to be messing anything up if I put it in a vice and really try my best to get the flash hider off.

Mine was the same way. Using the proper tool got mine off easy. Click me for the tool

10.5...doesn't that mean the flash hider was pinned on?

My A2 had loctite on it. I took it to my local gun shop. He heated it slightly with a torch and it easily twisted right off. No harm to the barrel or the A2. Then I added a phantom. No problem.

I am assuming that MusicBach14 has a registered SBR lower, and just posted in here instead of the full-auto/NFA forum.

Actually, it's a pistol build. Thanks for the answers so far. I guess I'm going to go to my local gunsmith and have him warm it up and take it off. Thanks for the replies guys-the good ones and the funny ones :D
