I never had to take one off. All we did was check to see that it couldn't be turned more than a fraction of an inch.KurtC: the original flash hider looks like it needs a pin, the M60E3 / E4 FLASH HIDERS look like they just thread without a pin. What would happen if a pin wasn’t used?
I don't know about the M60 FH threading but I would like to hear a review with pictures on the Delta P Adapter.
UPDATE: I saw this posted on AR15 - M60 would be 5/8x24
M249 would be 1/2x28
When I shortened my RPD barrel and bipod to 16" I had an M60 style FH made for it.
A friend tried the A2 style birdcage on his Socom. The only thing it was good for was taking up space. It wasn't very effective on 45 grains of ball powder going thru a 16 inch barrel. I think it's still lying around here somewhere.If a pin isn’t needed, can I use rockset or blue loctite to hold it in place? I’m also considering this flash hider.
Surefire devices usually use internal shims to time them correctly and RockSet to hold them in place. You will want a slot on top and a prong on the bottom, in order for it to work as a compensator. Rockset is like Red Locktite.Here is the one I’ve settled on. Any thoughts?? Will I need a crush washer on my delta p adapter?
Looks odd , but so do a lot of Commercial Muzzle devices , may be because I'm so used to seeing M14's with the Std. FS .I went ahead and got the M60 flash hider. I’m on the fence with the look. What do you guys think? I’m gonna try and go shooting Friday to see the difference. Here she is
I'm not use to seeing that hider without a bipod swishing around behind it. RNGR1I went ahead and got the M60 flash hider. I’m on the fence with the look. What do you guys think? I’m gonna try and go shooting Friday to see the difference. Here she is
