Introduction: How to Remove Flash Hider From an APS UAR
I'm making this instructable because I've noticed a lack of knowledge when it comes to removing the flash hider from this airsoft gun.
so what you'll need is:
1: a small Allen key (or Hex key)
2: an adjustable wrench
3: a 14mm counter clockwise suppressor, or barrel extension.
Step 1: Begin
First, put the gun on semi auto.
Then remove the two pins in the front of the gun, on the lower receiver.
(as seen in picture)
Then remove the upper half of the gun.
(this is possible, though you'll need to fiddle with it)
this is what it should look like.
(this is the V1 UAR, though I have also done this for a V2 UAR as well)
Locate the Allen/Hex screw on the flash hider, and the wrench grooves.
Then fully unscrew the screw, and size the wrench.
Now this is the fun part.
While sitting, place the stock between your legs, so the gun is facing upwards.
Place one of your hands on the outer barrel, and another on the wrench.
The hand that is on the barrel should twist right, while the hand on the wrench should push to the left.*
*You have to have your hand there because a part lower down use's the same type of screw, and will normally unscrew that while trying to unscrew the flash hider.
Step 6: Done!
And there you go!
now your going to want to clean the threading, seeing as they used glue when they placed the flash hider there.
Step 7: Credentials
As you can see, I've done this for two UAR's.
(Tan is a V1, black is a V2)
And I used the exact same process for both, I hope I helped.
