    The Extar Pistol is awesome. I’m trying to figure out how to remove the stock muzzle brake. It’s as if it’s welded on. I’d like to install a better flash hider.

        Yes Cale, I tried everything but the stock muzzle brake / compensator would not budge. I decided to go for broke. I was able to eventually remove it, BUT, to encourage it I had to carefully make a lateral cut along the length of the top of the muzzle brake / compensator with a Dremel. I went very carefully and deep enough so that I could just see the top of the threads on the barrel. But it would still not unscrew. I then supported the muzzle brake / compensator on a block of wood so that there was no pressure on any other part of the pistol, placed a good size cold chisel onto the Dremel cut and gave it 4 good wacks with a large rubber mallot. Very scary but I thought W.T.H. The muzzle brake / compensator showed a hair line crack where I had cut it. It now very easily spun off. I found minimal microscopic Dremel cut along the top of the threads. I clean that up and to my joy the AAC Blackout flash suppressor easily spun on and tightened up.

        RESULT and CONCLUSION: No more fire ball from the Extar. No perceptible increase in recoil or barrel rise. Very, very low night time signature. I also tested a Krinkov style flash suppressor which also worked out well but I decided to go back to the AAC Blackout. Reason: the Krinkov style was designed for SBRs conversions and is designed to greatly increase the back pressure to cycle standard rifle components with reduced gas pressure due to the shortened barrel of the SBR conversion. The Extar is designed as a short barrel fire arm and does not need the increase gas pressure and I became concerned as to long term stress on the Extar. The Krinkov also weighs in at around 9 oz, and the AAC Blackout weighs around 50% less at below 4 oz. The original muzzle brake / compensator weighs in at around 3.5 oz.

        Sorry for the length of reply, I hope all this helps.

        .. excellent choice. That’s a very highly acclaimed, tunable, combined muzzle brake and compensator. It would be my choice as well. Tests on YT show that you will still get the fireball. Most of my use for the Extar is at night.

    No buffer tube = No Sig Brace
    No Sig Brace = No practical value or use.
    Novelty junk.

      while I agree on the buffer tube, saying its worthless because you name drop a Sig brace makes you sound like an incompetent child.
