    I have an Echo1 Stag15 DMR and cannot get the flash hider off! looks like it has 2 small hex screws in it but i cant find any size to fit it... they are extremely tiny! Tried to just unscrew it with pliers n that didn't work. anybody have any ideas? Any suggestion would be helpful.. Thanks.

    Buy a small enough hex screw driver.

    All I did for mine was take a drill bit small enought to not make marks in the flash hider and drill em both out, the flash hider stays on tight enough and you never have to worry about taking screws out an losin em an such. Also when you do that your still able to put different flash hider on since the threads are not damaged

    That has already been recommended.

    Only one of those is an actual screw, the other us a pin. I know for a fact that there is a hex key to fit the screw but the pin is a mystery to me (apparently you can't just push it out because it doesn't go all the way through).

    Depends on the gun. but take the inner barrel out and the pin can be punched all the way though. the other hex head set screw is easy enough. to get out, standard allen wrench usually works but its actually metric and if its stripped out it can be a pain.
