    I've been meaning to take the orange flash hider off of my gun for a while and decided I'm going to get it off now. My gun is the G&G GR16 (for reference). There is a small screw on the side of the flash hider and wanted to know what size it is. I have tried multiple alen keys but none fit. Does anyone know what size aleen key I should buy?

    Make sure you use metric allen keys. Thats what I did for my King Arms.

    I will but the key in general just won't fit through the whole.

    You need to get some epoxy remover since there is probably glue over it. Then take a knife and scrape it off. That you key should fit. Thats what i had to do anyways.

    There is no glue over it. I would take a picture but I can't focus the camera enough to get a picture of the screw. I have taken a light to the screw and have seen it.

    It's called a "microscrew" and you need a .05 or .5 (cant remember) mm metric Allen wrench (key) along with your 1.5mm Allen wrench and a crescent wrench to unscrew the flashider and use a cloth
