How do you remove the flash hider on a HK91? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

On my 93 I just took a cresent wrench and a little elbow grease and it came right off.

Your flash hider had flats for a wrench?!
No it does not but you can kind of use the slots in the flash hider as flats. It worked a lot better than you would think.

I wonder if you use the slots you would risk damaging the flash hider? Also do you turn clockwise or counterclockwise (from perspective of looking at muzzle headon)

Right hand threads so counter clockwise to remove,My hk91 flash hider isn't that tight, i would use something a little less marring to remove it though. maybe a piece of brass stock in the notches at the end or the ports.

As loose as it is that would work too. The only thing keeping it tight on there is the spring clip thing. BTW I did not "mar" the finish taking it off the way that I did. Not that I care I actually use mine.

Other than the HK41 and HK43 which had permanently attached flash hiders, don't they just twist right off without tools?
