On 14.5" barrels with A2 or A1 flashhiders if you use a split washer or peel washer with a ~.25" jamb nut you get to 16"+ and the flashider does not look rediculously long on the end... Yes i know the A2X is only .25" longer, but still.


Thanks gunnut003 and I agree, I think the A2X looks too long

I think I spun the NT4s one more rotation out than picture to be "Sure" they are over 16"+ but it does not look too bad with 3 peel washers.

Using peel washers or a proper spacer is what KAC says to use for supressor mounting.  Even though crushwashers are used in the .mil.

For warranty purposes, using peel/ washer/shims/proper spacer is the best.  Per Nefarious Arms (one KAC authorized place to make the spacers to bring the 14.5 + NT4  to 16")  the spacer or stacking peel washers is fine for warranty purposes(something that provides even support all the way around the NT4).

ADCO is also a good place, I would assume.

With that said, I am using peel washers, but still am debating if I should have it pinned or if I should 1000* silver solder it?

16 inch is close enough imo, but you could just cut it.

PR project in the works.  ACOG normally resides on another rifle, as I'm still deciding on optic for this guy.. prob a 553 in FDE.  Elcan is out of the budget for the time being.  Wish I'd tried the KAC 300m rear sight a long time ago, as it is definitely my favorite (over Troy, Magpul, KAC 200-600m). I want to paint it, but I need to practice on some magazines first.

Added the FDE stock and removed the sling swivel, waiting on my EOtech 553 to arrive... that optic is scarce right now, especially if you don't want to pay $700 for it.  I continue to be impressed with how accurate this rifle is.
