Is there any reason NOT to just hack this thing down w/ the dremel and throw some paint on it?

It will be underneath a MRF-M anyways.

Anybody have experience doing this? Seems easy enough to me, but I've never done it. I was goingto leave it on the barrel and just cut off bit by bit, then file it smooth and refinish.

A little more than 3/4 of the way down this thread there is a how-to on that.

Just remember that the fsb that is on there now was drilled and reamed while it was on this barrel.

If you cut the original down and later change your mind and decide that you want to use a regular fsb on the same barrel, you will have to re-fit the new fsb, as the pin holes will not line up with the old holes in the barrel. Not really a do-it-yourself job.

If I ever did what you want to do, I would look for the cheapest used fsb and secure it with set screws. Especially if it was going to be hidden under a FF tube where it won't be subject to being banged around.

thanks Zman, I didnt know about that. I think I might get a low profile deal with set-screws

Just make sure that the one you buy will fit under your FF tube.

I wouldn't want you to waste money on something you can't use.

This is good information to know. I did not know this.
