I removed my Mini-Y-Comp from my barrel and ordered a new flash suppressor from Bushmaster. However, I have just realized that the New flash suppressor is not as long as the mini Y comp. I think I am in trouble now because doesnt this barrel need to be 16 inches total including the flash suppressor? What can I do?

If you got an A2, then yes, it will be too short. Any of the phantoms or Izzys should get you to 16 no prob.

I dont think this is a A2 though.... Are you referring to the old A2 Birdcage? This is suppose to be brand spankin new design from Bushmaster..... I think

Here is the link to it..... it says its 2 and 1/4 inch long but its still shorter than the mini y comp.

Mini y comp measures 2 and 5/8ths. I know its not a huge difference but it might be enough to make it illegal.

That's a Phantom 5C1. It's made by YHM. It will be sufficient to give you 16". BTW you could have save yourself $10 by buying it from ADCO.

Don't forget it must be permanently attached, silver soldered in place.

That's what I was going to say. Unless you perm attach the supressor it doesn't matter one bit how long it is. the bbl length is determined by measuring the inside of the bbl from the bolt face to the end of the permenent part of the bbl. stick a small dowel down there and measure what you have now. If it isn't 16" w/o the brake on there you are already in violation!

Sorry fellas I guess I should have included that also. I DO plan to silver solder/weld the new suppressor on. But first I want to get the size/length issue tackled first before permanently attaching it on.

Geez man have you been living on another planet for the last 12 years? There was even a Made-For-TV movie on one of the major networks about his case.

Someone needs to read unintended consequences from cover to cover. That should be a mandatory read before getting posting rights ;-)

He was a seperatist, wacko or a patriot depending on who you ask. The FBI came and wanted to serve a warrant. Gunfight ensued. FBI killed his son and murdered his wife and shot his dog. Only he lived. He was found not guilty in court and let free. There were rumors they shortened his long arm to make a case, that they shot his wife on purpose instead of the guy running in the door, etc etc. Its a very long story but one you should know. It was the Waco before Waco.

You should know about some things on AR15.com

I replaced my Mini-Y barrel with a Closed Phantom barrel. It is a little shorter but nothing to worry about...............enjoy it!

Is it true that Horiuchi got a building named after him at one of the FBI training centers?
