hey guys, I got a great deal on a complete BM upper from a friend, but the thing is that its a post ban configuration, but its going on my pre ban lower and so I am wondering how I can put a Flash Hider on it? Is it possible to thread the barrel or am I stuck to having to weld it on? Any info you guys can give me would be great and any place that I could ship my upper to that could do whats necessary. thanks guys!

Go to Kurt, he has a forum on this site. Putting the post ban upper on a pre-ban lower is fine. For what you planning to do is fine. An example of how your upper will be, just look at the pre-ban Colts upper without the bayonet lug.

Legally, you're all good. So long as the overall length of the barrel (plus flash suppressor) is 16" or greater, you are fine. However, if you want a bayonet lug, you will need to replace the entire front sight post. This is [b]not[/b] something you want to do unless you [i]really[/i] know what you're doing. My suggestion is to either call Kurt at KKF and see what he has to say OR trade your upper for a preban version. (The second option may cost you less, especially after adding in shipping, insurance, packaging, etc., costs.) Good luck! Mike

There is actually an adaptor bayonet lug out that is designed to be used on post ban uppers. I believe Tapco sales them.

bkss67 Email me at tanenbom64@yahoo.com and maybe we can work out a trade. I have a Bushy Dissipator in a preban.
