Elite Force M4 CQB Flash Hider

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

This is my first post, and I'm having trouble with the Elite Force M4 CQB flash hider. First of all, the flash hider broke, so it's useless. I wanted to confirm with anyone who knows if its threads are CWW or CW because I'm getting a new one. About installing a new one, though.

 

I looked at the threads several times, and they're filled with glue. I'm sorry if I offend anyone but Elite Force/Ares did a pretty crappy job of gluing on the flash hider. I also need to find a way to either remove, or take out the little stud that comes out of the side into the flash hider to keep it sturdy. I'm also not sure if it's even possible to replace the flash hider with its amount of glue.

 

I might just have to replace the whole outer barrel, but I don't want to do this because I'd have to replace the front sight as it's attached to the outer barrel.

 

Thanks for reading and please leave suggestions!

Its clockwise thread. As you said its pinned instead of set screwed so you aren't going to want to unscrew it and destroy your threads. Take a dremel and cut the plastic parallel to the barrel a few times, hit it with a heatgun and grab it with piliers than peel it of like a banana. Any glue residue can be removed with acetone and a wire brush.
