Well, first understand that they have a large gorilla put these things on.... There is no thread locker or anything like that, its just on there TIGHT. Standard thread (righty tighty, lefty loosy)

I stuck mine in a vise (padded with some rags) not too tight, just enough to hold it, then found an Allen wrench that fits in the end of the flash hider, sorry dont remember the size... It was a metric size, and its larger than 10mm, it was 11 or 12mm probably? maybe 13. Anyway, with that, some heat, and a 12" cheater bar it came off easily.
The other method I have heard of is to find a piece of metal that will fit through the slots and use that as a "wrench" (hint, a butter knife will just break)

Wow lol, thanks for the help, i tried twisting it off and it wouldnt budge, i assumed there was some special way lol. By any chance would you know if a dreadnaught style muzzle break would fit? I know the thread size is the same, but say i tighten it all the way on.. it might not sit even?. If you are not familiar with the dreadnaught compensators, they are not symetrical all the way around, so im not sure if when i put one on it willl appear tilted or not.

You can either get a crush washer, or just sand the stock washer thats already on the gun... The one I put on my gun is the type that only has slots on the top so that it doesn't kick up dust when shooting prone. Rather than buy something else and wait for it in the mail, I just sanded the washer till the flash hider was the right way round when it was tight... It tool some time, but all it cost me was elbow grease, and I did it while watching TV so it wasn't that bad...
