Hi Gang,

I'm going to remove the fake flash hider on my RRA carbine. I was wondering what the hot tips and cool tricks to doing this were. I understand that it's pressed on, and that un-pressing it may be somewhat more involved. I'm not a machinest, but I play one at work, so equipment/tooling shouldn't be a problem. Thanks for your time, and have a nice day.

Stych

While the FFH can be removed, be aware that the muzzle has been turned down too far to thread it for a regular FH or brake.

Thanks for all the input. Removing the fake flash hider is priority #1. As to wheather or not a brake can be readily installed, I'll burn that bridge when I get to it. Stych

If it can't be rethreaded to attach a FF (post-sunset) or a brake, why remove it at all? It hepls protect the crown of the barrel, and it actually looks decent IMO!? I have the same barrel, and if the ban sunsets I'll just buy a new upper with all the goodies. Just food for thought... B9

Why remove it? To install a FF RAS, of course. Thanks again, Stych

Not exactly true. I had it done to mine.

Okay, on [b]my[/b] RRA barrel, I found that when I removed the FFH, tthe muzzle was too small to be threaded for a normal FH. So I sold it.
