    I called Colt today and as it sits, they have been discontinued for almost 2 years. I was inquiring about a barrel extension if they could tell me whether or not it was patterned after sr25 or dpms. It is proprietary, so the Geissele reaction rod likely wont work.

    This whole fiasco started with me wanting to run a surefire warcomp in place of the A2 birdcage, but I cant unthread the damn thing. Looks like removing my handguard and coming up with a makeshift barrel clamp will be in order.

    Anyone else swap their muzzle devices on the CM762?

    Yeah, I don't buy that at all, considering they were touting it at SHOT 2019. At 4:44 in the video



    A guy on AR15.COM in the Colt industry section changed his MD out for a Q Plan B, so it can be done.

    About 1/2 down the page - he doesn't explain how he did it, but he didn't say it was difficult.

    Sweet. Thanks. And yeah, I didnít buy that either. Especially when they were listed on their site as new for 2018. Lol. That video you posted was what got me interested in it back in February. I have a feeling that guy I spoke to just didnít know what was what.

    I did, and you're right it was on tighter than normal. I used barrel vise jaws with some scrap pieces of suede like normal, but the barrel started to turn. I added some rosin powder to the suede and it really made a difference, the grip was much stronger.

    I bought the rosin at Academy Sports, but if you have a bowling alley near you they may sell it for a few quarters

    Sweet. Thanks. Good to know. I still havenít removed my handguard yet, and a guy at Colt told me a while back they can be a pain in the ass to remove. Was yours a bitch? Im guessing that I remove the screws and threaded inserts and pull strait back. Im hoping its not tighter than dicks hat band. Lol

    It wasn't too bad, just needed a bit more torque applied to the allen key than normal

    I had mine switched to a socom brake from Surefire. Not sure how the gun shop did it a
    Few years ago.

    Im going to remove the handguard. Its really the only way I can see doing so with the least probability of damaging something. I may try the reaction rod from geissele. If it doesnít fit they told me theyíd refund me and not hit me with a restock fee.
