  1. Hi all! Christmas was great, got a new comp for my AR15 platform. In my excitement I wanted to get right to removing the flash hider and adding the new compensator. I messed up. With two people holding the gun at every place but the barrel, we made the barrel rotate and not the muzzle device. Immediately it was obvious since this is a free float system that the gas tube bent and went FUBAR. I then to my despair went searching the internet with the worst thoughts of "how bad did I mess this up? Do I need a new upper? How expensive could this get?". Not much came up but I did see a lot about shearing the index pin, which caused barrel rotation in similar attempts to remove muzzle devices due to no grip on the barrel. However, I am not using a simple barrel nut. This is an American Tactical Imports AR with the Head Down Provectus system, which uses their own barrel nut that is not only difficult to get off since our combo wrench doesn't line up, but I can't tell with this type of rifle if there is an index pin. I'm fairly green to building ARs. My father recently bought his own and we made some slight modifications in-house. This included removing his front sight and barrel nut to install a free float rail and a gas block/pipe to go with it. There were bumps on the way and we worked around them, no details since I'm digressing as-is. TL;DR: Attempted muzzle device removal, barrel rotated, new gas block on the way, anything else I should be concerned with such as the index pin, condition of my upper, etc? Any help is greatly appreciated, and preference is good news first if there is any, or worst news first if there is no good news.
