removing "post-ban" muzzle device

Recommended Posts

I have an AR-10 that I purchased in 2001. In those days, Armalite was shipping the guns with a "permanently attached" muzzle break to avoid any issues with the threaded barrels. I say "permanently attached" because I remember reading posts of people who did successfully remove them so that they could put other breaks on, or to attached unported replacements to quiet the beast down some.

I now want to do that myself, but I can't find those old posts. Does any one remember how they were attached back then?

I kinda think the posts indicated had they were pinned in place after being thread on, then the whole thing was Parkerized. Is it a matter of just removing the finish to find the pins, then driving then out? Out do they have to be drilled out? Or are they soldered on?

Any help appreciated.
