Looking for a good gunsmith to take off the muzzle break and put a vortex flash hider on my existing AR10...

Any recommendations?

Wilson Combat will do it. I would check the Gunsmith Top 100 Assoc. or whatever it's called & try to find one close to home, IMO.

Good luck!

I'd move this to the AR10 forum...Sniperx, Slash...lots of options over there.

ADCO, Slash, sniperx, or Armalite

None that won't upset the AR-10 crowd  

Actually, there were a lot of threads with detailed pictures in the AR10 forum right after the 2004 sunset period as several WECSOGers had at it. These would all be archived now, I guess.

As stated on the ADCO web site:

We do NOT perform ANY shop services on ANY .308 AR10 style rifle/upper.

I seem to recall ArmaLite wasn't doing the brake/suppressor swap either shortly after the sunset. This might have been a case of being too busy. Are they doing it now for customers?

I took off my muzzle brake with a dremel and then chased the threads with a tap.

The new FH just screwed on the barrel after that.

It's pretty easy if you go slow and take your time.
