It looks like the default device is a flash hider.
I want to go featureless with
one of their new builds.
Got it from Henderson.
Nice 308 rifle for $600.
Heard the flash hider is on there pretty good.
Looking for the best way to remove
and swap it for a US brake.
Any advice?

were you able to remove the flash hider?

Turn counter clockwise with some pliers and a strip of leather.

What brake did you go with?

I've used the Century CETME, I think - not sure, just remembering - that the FH looked like some sort of press on with cuts in it that, once pressed down could not be pulled off? The FH on ones I've used were actually loose but could not be turned and had striations on the barrel that looked like they were designed to keep the FH in place.

This was a few years ago, IIRC - but my trigger finger is still sore from the darn 20lb pull.
