    I bought a silencer for my G&G combat machine and I can't get the flash hider off. I tried everything from heating it up, boiling it, and just plain brute force. I need help.

    There should be a small Allen bolt that needs to come out. Once that is removed, just take a lighter to it for a while then give it a big twist in THE CORRECT DIRECTION! This is always a pain in the butt for everyone, so don't give up easily.

    Sigh its called a supressor not a silencer. A silencer completely gets rid of sound, supressor supresses it.

    I did remove the Allen screw and I did take a light to it and it didn't move.

    Are you twisting in the right direction? With pliers?

    Pipe wrench and grasps. Worked last night on my VFC. Silencer and suppresser are the same exact thing. Both suppress sound on a gun. Silencer is movie language. I believe the CM had CCW threads.

    There is no such thing as a silencer, as a gun can not be completely silence. They are the same, one just isn't the accurate name.
    I believe this is correct.

    If you really want it off you could just crack it with a hammer and use goo-b-gone or something and maybe get another orange flash hider for transportation or when required.

    What type of pliers? "Pliers" is a very generic name, and there are many different sizes of "Pliers".

    To start off, is the flash hider plastic? If so, using a heat gun, heat the thing up until it starts to melt. If it is metal, then heat it up until the paint starts to melt. Then take a pair of channel locks or vise grips, and get a good grip on the flash hider, then twist in the off direction (most likely clockwise).

    If it's metal (might work with plastic, depends on how much you melt it) then you can also use a crescent wrench, as there is a flat portion on a standard birdcage flash hider mean for an armorers wrench.

    I melted mine a little bit with a butane torch a little bit and then twisted it off with a pipe wrench.
