    ahhhh, I had the same thing happen........Your best bet is to either keep trying or do what i did and get a front end conversion kit to replace the current front end

    I'm fairly sure the newer version Combat Machines have a small screw that keeps the flash hiders locked in place.

    They do indeed but, It's actually not removable nowadays, It has no shape or pattern for a hex key or anything. It's over-glued on.

    It's definitely overglued then.......Just buy a new front end conversion kit.

    Simple solution: Buy tan handguards.....Only about $10 if I'm right. put those on it then.
