Armalite pinned flash suppressor questions


Recommended Posts

Well, not quite sure what's sixoclock , so here's top sides & bottom...  My intent is to free float this barrel, however if too difficult a take down, I guess I'd just suck it up &  just get new barrel ... oh, I did take the pins out but the brake seems really stuck on there! wasn't sure if need a puller of some kind, or to be unscrewed? 

and thank you for the tech info post! invaluable! especially since Armalite been sold and nothing remains of the old AR15.com industry info...

that one being double cross pinned like that is because it is knurled and pressed on. 

others were blind pinned at 45* and welded, but they were threaded on.  


  1. send it to a reputable place, cut the break off and thread the barrel.
  2. replace complete upper configuration and sell current one to someone that is in a state that has restrictions still.
  3. replace bbl asm and rebuild the way you want it.
