lmao, they look so much better though! You can do what he said and try heating it up as mentioned... They were put on to stay on so it will take some work to get it off!Vice block and 3/4" open-end wrench.
Maybe it's a sign to not use the brake . They aren't necessary and won't make you any new friends at the range.
you have cut the flash hider for remove?I have 3 for my personal use. 2 were fairly normal, 1 was insanely, ridiculously tight. It was so tight, I had to cut the hider in half and use a special socket to engage the "teeth" from the A2 slots and an impact wrench with the air compressor on max to get it off!
