So can I legally remove my mini Y comp and replace it with a flash suppressor legally. I know many in here have done it but there seemed to be a controversy as to whether the new suppressor would be legal by BATF standards. Is silver soldering required in order to make this changeover legit? How hard is it to silver weld these suckers on?

if it has been beaten to death here and you still aren't sure, contact your state DOJ, just to be sure.

Well I figured someone here may have already addressed the legality of it with BATF. I would rather ask on this forum then call some beaurocratic A-holes and ask them.

If the barrel is under 16" you must silver solder the new flash hider on and the barrel and flashhider must be 16" long total.

If you already have a 16" barrel no need to soder it.

Roger that. I have a 14.5 barrel with the mini y comp to bring it to 16. I think I am going to try to tackle this job myself since I have all the tools. The only thing I dont know how to do is silver sodering. Anyone here a tell how?

It seems fairly simple to do. Im going for it. The only thing that seems a little scary is to accidentally damage the threads when removing the comp. If the threads get screwed up, I would imagine its time to buy a new barrel right?

Depending on how badly they are damaged you would have to get a new barrel, or have your existing one re-crowned.

Its not that hard of a procedure. I did it myself. It took about 1.5 hours. Now that I've done one, it would take about 20 minutes.
