That thing's loud as hell, I have had it. Can I do it at home and where do I start? It looks like it's very secured fixed in place.

I think someone sells a cover that connects OVER the mini-y. It causes all gas to be ported forward... I'll look around for a link.

If it is on a 16 or 20 inch barrel, you can use a hammer and punch to knock out the tapered pin underneath that holds it on. Then shoot the rifle a few times until it flies off. If it's mounted to a 14.5 inch barrel, it is welded on by bushmaster and will have to be removed by a machinist.

Is the barrel on M4 type 14.5" right, this is it. I was going to get it off and put on a CAR15 type of muzzlebrake for it to be legal 16". How's it welded on? Blind pinned from bottom and then welded shut, like ATF wanted? If I can break the weld I might be able to get it off. Anyone ever attempted such things at home?

Why get rid of a Bushmaster, J-Bar? The VAST majority seem to be more than just happy with theirs.

Some bushys just seem to have problems That don’t happen in other rifles, but like I sed That is just I, I not saying that bushy parts are bad I’m just saying that, there are a few things that bushy douse That I personally don’t like, but bushy parts are ok

Uh-oh.... [:K] I LOVE my Bushy, and I'm NEVER going to get rid of it. I'm just wondering... what IS a good weapon to get, since you'd get rid of the Bushy, J-Bar?

Or, just drill it out. Get a drill bit a size larger than the opening and ream it out. Takes the blast away.

I don't want to hi-jack this topic but, I'm interested in getting rid of my AK-74 brake. Does anyone know if I can follow the same operation as the Mini removal? Are all of the Bushy barrels threaded? Can I screw on one of Kurt's A3 tac brakes then pin and weld?
