Flash suppressor change.

Discussion in 'GATE AR-15 Forum' started by Nutt51, Apr 15, 2011.

  1. Want to remove the birdcage flash suppressor on my flat top AR
    and install a Vortex F/S. Can this safely be done by putting the
    upper receiver in an upper receiver vise block, securing it in a vise,
    and then unscrewing the old and screwing on the new suppressor without
    damaging the upper or barrel.
    I guess what I'm asking is, is that enough support for making the change,
    or should the barrel be removed and secured in a barrel clamp instead of using
    an upper receiver vise block. Many thanks.

    it is best to use a barrel vise because if you screw the barrel out of the barrel extension it will be a costly trip to a gunsmith. If you want to try it in a receiver vise try it with a little pressure to see if the flash comes loose quick, if it is very tight get a barrel vise.
