Just want to make sure this is NOT a FH. This came with my Stag 2TL.
Good day!

its a flash hider.if it was a muzzle brake there would only be a small opening on the end just enough for projectile to exit out.

Looks like a standard A2 flashhider.

I'm particularly fond of the RRA "Tactical Muzzle Brake (http://www.rockriverarms.com/item-detail.cfm?ID=AR0001A1&storeid=1&image=brks07.gif&CFID=40836911&CFTOKEN=26189717)" mostly for aesthetic reasons, and it is what I have on my rifle. There are all kinds of muzzle brakes and compensators out there though, you'll find something.

Didn't do a very good job of suppressing the flash from your camera, but t will do a pretty good job of disbursing the muzzle blast from your barrel and suppressing the flash signature.

Thanks for clearing that up. I bought a Tactical Muzzle Brake already.
Now it's just a matter undoing the FH. It's going to be a b&tch! Maybe I should call in sick tomorrow! LOL

Wrap a t-shirt around your barrel, then put the barrel in a vise very tightly; and use a monkey wrench or other adjustable wrench to remove the flashhider. They make special tools you can use to do it, but from my experience the tools tailored to the task are not deep enough to give you good hold and leverage.

*sigh* I'm here telling you guys things you already know in an attempt to further procrastinate with school work. So boring. :(

that's way too hard and risky...heat up the flashhider with a blow dryer, heat gun, blow torch and then put the receiver between your legs and unscrew the flashhider with an adjustable wrench

the method i used was as a complete rifle put the buttstock on the floor, straddle the rifle between your legs and with a adjustable wrench take it right off.

I got it out using a a 19mm open-ended. It was easy enuf. Thanks for the moral support!

I guess mine have all just been on there way too tight? I've never been able to get them off by simply straddling the rifle. Furthermore, I don't see how putting the barrel in a vise could be any more risky than torquing on your barrel/reciever connection?

And sorry, I'm a man... but a young, poor, non-mechanic man... so I have neither blow dryer nor a blow torch. :rolleyes:
