Sorry if this has been asked here. I looked around for a long time before I posted.

On my RRA std M4gery it has that damn "LOUD" mock suppressor.

In many posts, I see people removing their mock supressors with a dremel, grinder etc. Now I am really handy with those tools too and am comfortable with the process.

BUT?

(1) Is the welded pin going to be right on top if I grind it? So far all the pics have the top of the supressor ground off as I can see it in the posts.

(2) Is the barrel already threaded under there? It is so hard to tell just by looking at the barrel?

(3) Then I can order my new Flash Supressor with a crush washer and I am set?

Thank you in advance for any help with this.

Gartchen- I've been told the mock suppressor is pressed on . Somewhere on this site is a picture of it removed.

I got two different opinions about removing & threading the barrel to support a flash hider. ADCO says it can be done; RRA says there is not enough meat to thread. I don't know, haven't had it done to my RRA M4gery...

There is a picture of a de-Faux-Flash-Supressered barrel in this thread:

as always - excellent help from the board.

I wonder how hard it is to "UN" press that little bastard? hinking.gif


Thank you for the responses. Looks like I should be talking to ADCO soon!

I believe someone said that managed to get the fake flash supressor off by putting a wood block against it and whacking it with a hammer - but YMMV.

If you look at the brake, you can usaully see the weld over the set screw or blind pin. I made short work of a KKF muzzle brake with my dremel tool. Took less than 5 minutes.
