Do they require a welded muzzle device?

yes. if ya dont have a short barreled rifle stamp you must be PERMENANTLY over 16". so you must still have it welded or any of the other approved methods.

W/o a "tax Stamp" yes the muzzle device must be permanently welded, the point of the 14.7 was not to eliminate the need to permanently weld the MD, it was to allow the use of the std. FS to be perm. welded instead of an extended FS/MD.

BINGO! It more closely resembles the military issue 14.5" M4 with A2 flash hider. It still has to be welded, but it looks more "authentic" to those who care.

I've got 16" barrels with A2 flash hiders, and a 14.5" barrel with welded Phantom flash hider. If I were to just have one, I'd go with the 16".

I had some spare parts lying around and I built up a LMT upper with a Colt 16" shortened to 14.7" and had a A2 flash suppresor perm attached. It came out pretty good I must say.
