For various reasons I would like to remove the compensator from my AR-10(T) Carbine.

This rifle is from 2000 or 2001. I say that because apparently there is a difference in the method of 'securing' the comp to the barrel.

Obviously I must have a wrench, and a soft-jawwed vice.

What else do I need? A blow torch?

Will removal destroy the comp?

What is the best way to resecure a muzzle device to be compliant?

I'm stumped, please help.

Put down the torch and step away from the work bench, NOW! LOL. Just kidding. I don't know how they are attached, but if you want to be easy on the barrel I recomend you scap the comp and have someone cut it off with a lathe.

That would create the problem of less than 16". Besides, I still want a comp on there, I just need to get it off to perform some upgrades. I am concerned about damaging the barrel. My plan is to either send the top end somewhere to have the work done, or just do it myself. I prefer to do the latter. I really think a Craftsman propane torch will do the job. Anybody else have any ideas?
