I wouldn’t pull the suppressor or gas cylinder until the barrel needs to be replaced. All you’re doing is loosening how they fit. Really there’s nothing under the wood that normally requires attention. I do it once a year if I’m shooting it a couple times every month.

Thanks from MattSC

When you say LE, is that la enforcement? I would be surprised that they any law enforcement would run something like this considering the options out there.

Correct. It was used for law enforcement service; probably SWAT/SRT. There were two other guns like it, this one was in the best apparent condition.

May be from a time when not everybody was AR happy, or whatever equivalent 'modern' options are out there, or simply that LE organizations are populated by people, and people have their own preferences and given the freedom to make them, do.

Could be that a particular individual or group felt that the rifle fulfilled whatever priorities they had quite well and it combined well with the fact that they just liked it. I'm only speculating of course. I don't know the history of the rifle or those who originally used it.
