LMT has no A3 carry handle. Your better off with a BUIS instead anyway and thats why I wanted their upper... no useless parts like the A3 carry handle.  Upper is $485 minimum advertised price but you can get things included for free like shipping, flash hider, hand guards, FF rail install or charging handle.  I suggest a Colt M16 bolt and carrier over the LMT unit as its usually within $10 or so of the LMT price.  If you want the LMT "enhanced bolt its considerably more.

does anyone permanently attatch the FS to the LMT barrels? I need one permanent to meet the legal specs here in CT.

Actually, is only a 14.5: barrel that need the FS to be permanent to equal the legal 16" limit? and a regular 16" barrel can accept a non permanent FS and still be legal...


Anyone know off the top of their head ? Im in Connecticut, and i know we have a few extra BS laws to get around.

Ask the dealers that stock the LMT gear, if they can't, I believe ADCO will do it for you.

Edit:

That is correct.

Thanks Doc, but i might be wrong about needing it permanent on a 16" barrel, and if i go with a 16" barrel, then that would mean i could still pick it up from you when i get all the $$ i need. If the other things i listed were ok.

Just gotta find out whats what, so i dont break the law and go bye bye.

EDIT- Ok, could you shoot me a price via email regarding a ...

16", 1/7 twist, chrome lined, M4 feed ramps, M4 profile, A2 birdcage FS upper complete with bolt & carrier?

I have handguards, so i need the rest of the upper.

Thanks for the info,
Craig

You can't put a flash hider or flash suppressor (spelling?) on a AR in CT. It doesn't matter if it is perm or not perm. Unless you  own a preban lower (pre 94'). Then you could do what ever you want as long as the barrel is 16" or more. If you have a 14.5" with a non perm Flash hider you will need to register it as a SBR (CLEO signed paperwork, tax stamp,...)

Correct  me if I am wrong.....

Best thing to do is contact the CT DPS or state police.

I own a preban, so im all set.

you should be all set.

I have a bushy and a pwa pre-ban so I am covered too. I am going to be contacting ADCO firearms in Ohio to do some work on my m4 upper (evil features). I have heard nothing but good things about them.

I am also going to look into an 18" custom upper from them. need to save some more money

Never heard of ADCO, who are they? what do they do?


EDIT: they have a web site ?
Link Posted: 1/11/2005 4:46:31 PM EDT
redrumnine,

here is the link to ADCO's shop services page:
http://www.adcofirearms.com/shopservices.cfm

they also have their own forum in the industry forum. You can see pictures of their custom rifles and read some feedback.

Awsome, thanks much !
Link Posted: 1/11/2005 5:50:24 PM EDT
Also ask Denny's Guns in the EE section if they will add one for you.  You will get a better deal if you get it all from one person (upper and flash hider installed)

Ill check him out devl, thanks for the info.

Is it marked LMT like everything else they make?  I have never seen an LMT carry handle.  You sure its made by LMT?  Never knew that.

Talk to Denny at www.globaltactical.com (aka Dennysguns here on arfcom).

I actually would like to pick up a carry handle eventually, just to have one. And it would be pretty cool if i could get an LMT one if available.
Link Posted: 1/12/2005 6:53:13 AM EDT
It seems like everybody is sold out of LMT 14.5" uppers.
Link Posted: 1/12/2005 12:15:48 PM EDT
from what I understand its gonna be a couple months until the new ones are in....

sucks for me cuz I'm waiting on a replacement for one that had a problem.

6-8 weeks is what I was told.

Call Paul at BravoCompany. www.bravocompanyusa.com

Also check with Grant at G&R Tactical. I don't know his inventory situation on M4 uppers, but I know he has MRP's in stock.

I talked to LMT 2 weeks ago, and they said that Bravo Company should be getting a shipment at the end of January. Bravo Company supposedly has a large backorder log with LMT.

At least that is what they told me. YMMV
