I have a post ban upper that has a muzzle brake attached. It looks similar to the standard brake, with cut slots (not "fake ones") and is attached to what appears to be my threaded barrel. It looks like there is a lock washer in between-and also is pinned in the bottom-but not welded or soldered. It is also "oversized" so that a bayonet could not fit over it, and also the end is closed except for the hole for the bullet-not open like military type. Is this legal to use on a post ban rifle? I have heard as long as it is pinned you are ok and as long as it is pinned and soldered over you are ok, and as long as it is pinned, but not a actual muzzle brake(no 'real' slots) you are ok... Does anybody know what is ok? Ok? I have looked arund on this site but have only found many different, not absolute opinions. Does soldering the brake on affect the barrel having to heat it that high-and is it absolutely necessary if it is already pinned? Thanks.

Troy, I wonder what you meant by saying "As for the muzzle brake itself, it should be fine". Are you saying the way the brake's attached is okay for a postban??? plz advise, thanks.

Brake/flash enhancers are legal on a "Post-Ban". If installed to a threaded barrel, must be permantly attached to be legal via the threaded barrel. NO flash suppressor/muzzle cans allowed on a post ban.
