OP, do you still have the fake factory flash hider on it ?? If so those were spot welded (weakly) to the barrel. AFTER you remove the allen head screw that locks the castle nut in place, unscrew the castle nut. Then you're going to want a large BRASS punch and small hammer. The spot welds are light and found on the bottom rear of the factory fake flash hider. A few hits with the hammer will usually break them free.

Use the punch to drive the fake off the barrel. A small file will get rid of any trace of the welds before installing a new flash hider.
