Just got an 5.56 XCR. At the gun store I asked if the flash hider was permanently attached or not. The guy didn't know but said probably not. Back home I tried to remove the flash hider with a wrench and I couldn't get it to budge. I didn't want to scratch up the finish any more so I stopped. Is there a way of tell if the flash hider is permanently attached just by looking at it?

You could look to see if you see a small bit of weld over a hole on just one side of the flashhider. The hole would not be all the way through just on one side only then they welded over after the pin was placed.

If by chance they dressed it up prior to finishing you may never find the pin. You may need to call Terra and see if they keep records of rifles that had pinned FH.
