My m4-2000 seems to be stuck on the mount! The latch is already pressed in, I'll try to make a photo.

Argh qd doesn't help when the mount unscrews lol

Any suggestions?

Soak it in liquid wrench or Ed's Red (without acetone). It is probably a bit jammed with carbon.

there should be very hard to get to flat spots that you can get a wrench into on the mount. it's not easy but you could put the suppressor in a vice or similar and try to press the latch and back off the mount with a wrench. Is there a lot of carbon bonding them together?

I don't think it's had a hundred rounds through it yet, and this is off the newer sbr upper, not sure.

I'll give it a try later, thanks for the ideas

Did you use Rockset on the threads when you put on the mount? The mount shouldn't just unscrew. I would clean and degrease the threads on the rifle, apply a couple drops of Rockset and screw the mount/suppressor back on. Let it set and then try to remove the suppressor again.

I did rocksett the bastard, it was lots of wrenching to get it to the point in the picture

Soak (submerse) that entire end in light penetrating oil for 24+ hours, then use a proper wrench on the QD and a strap-wrench
on the suppressor. Depending on how coordinated (or not) you are, may need a second set of hands.
In severe instances a sonic cleaner (if you or a friend have one) does the trick as well, just make sure your suppressor
finish can handle it.

Not sharp shooting you here but did you degrease the threads on both the barrel and the mount?

I thought I did, the mount in the 16 inch one has held, but that was a long time before this, I am relatively sure.

Who knows, she's soaking in the trunk until I can get home from work, we shall see.

Success!! Liquid wrench in a ziplock for an hour and a half, 7/8 wrench and a big strap wrench.

Thank you all very much for the help

ETA : yeah I dropped the brakeout down into the garbage disposal

Going to hunt for some rocksett... I doubt I see any in town..

That is weird mine never gets stuck like that. And I shoot some dirty ammo.

Dont feel bad. I once dropped my old Keltec .380 in the crapper right after I took a poo.
I sold it a few days later lol

Just remember that whenever you see a used P3AT for sale..
