Is This flash suppressor removable?

All, just need a quick answer as to whether this flash suppressor is removable. Did some research online and couldn't find anything. I just bought a low profile gas block to switch out however I now fear I won't be able to install it. Any info?

From the looks of it I would say no. It also has the stamping of the barrel information on it. Never seen anything like that before. Any barrel that is 14.5 has to be pinned and welded unless its an NFA. I'm sure you know that already...

Nice looking M&P 15-22

Unless the overall length of that barrel is 21.5 inches or you have a Tax Stamp, no, it is not removable. It is pinned and welded to bring the overall length to 16 inches.

I actually took a class with a guy using one of those. No one there had seen it before either, it was the strangest thing.

Actually alot of people dont abide by the rules to the T. I've seen plenty of those floating around that were not properly pinned or welded.

Weld is obvious, a pinned hider will usually have a mark visable.




To remove the flash hider once you find the pin you can drill it but you run the risk of over drilling.


The best way is to take a dremel and a cut off wheel and slowly start scratching at the surface at and around the pin. Usually you reach a point that the remaining part of the pin will just fall out. Then unscrew the barrel and chase with a die.

If there are no marks visible polish with fine sand paper and see if you can see any marks under the finish. If not then try to unscrew it...If it STILL does not want to budge its probaby soldered on. More the likly its silver brazed. To remove fill the barrel with heat stop paste and heat with a HOT torch (propane tanks probably not gonna work) get the flash hider red fast to limit heat transfer and screw it off with vice grips.

Another method is to cut the hider near the muzzle and split the flash hider using a dremal or jewlers saw in 3 places and peel the parts of the flash hider off the barrel with a dull chissle.

I believe that's actually part of the barrel and it's permanently attached.
